Colin McRae Rally 3 Review

GameSpot
24 January 2005
  • Excerpt: If rally racing is your thing, you're almost certainly curious to find out if Codemasters' latest Colin McRae-endorsed racer is on a par with Evolution Studios' World Rally Championship, which was released in March 2002. In truth, Colin McRae Rally 3 isn't necessarily a game that should replace World Rally Championship in your collection, but it's definitely one that warrants a look if you're a fan of the sport.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Excerpt: As the latest entry into the growing rally sports racing field, Colin McRae Rally 3 has detailed and smooth visuals. While not as sharp as Microsoft's RalliSport Challenge , with less environmental effects then that title offers, its textures seem crisp, and the game's cars have detailed, reflective surfaces. Colin McRae Rally 3 offers a solid frame rate, and cars move along at convincing speeds. Cockpits are detailed, and exteriors offer deformable bodies.

  • Excerpt: By Gary Kearney I admit that I don’t know all that much about racing in general and therefore even less about Rally racing.  For whatever reasons, NASCAR has never held that much appeal to me.  Maybe going around and around in circles just doesn’t do it for me.  However, I’m learning more about Rally racing and it seems pretty darn interesting.  Rally racing is a bit different than the typical racing that most Americans are used to.

Game Over Online
2 June 2003
  • Excerpt: When the powers that be floated the idea of my covering Colin McRae Rally 3 on the Xbox, I was ecstatic. I’ve covered rally racing before: several Colin McRae titles on the Game Boy Advance and Rallisport Challenge on the PC. So when the opportunity opened up for me to take on the Tony Hawk of the rally racing world, I jumped on it only to realize that this grasshopper still needs a few more lessons in the simulator.

  • Excerpt: Rally racing is something that has only recently come into its own in the United States. While the rest of the world enjoys this sport very much, the U.S. has been busy with Nascar, Indy Racing, and every other method of “circle” driving known to man. In the past few years, however, late night Speed Channel telecasts will show glimpses of this amazing sport.

The Next Level
21 March 2003
  • Excerpt: Like previous entries in the series, the goal of the game is simply to create the most realistic and intense rally racing simulation available. In living up to the high standard previously set by itself, it succeeds wholeheartedly. CMR3 immerses you like very few games in the genre can claim to.

  • Conclusion: This is a perfect portrayal of a rally championship, shown in detail via the career mode spanning three years. All car lovers will need no more convincing, and to everyone else, Colin McRae 3 is numero uno.

Gamecell
25 December 2004
  • Conclusion: More jaggies than Xbox owners are used to, and flat 2D spectators also show up the game's multiformat origins, although the highly believable settings for the stages still somehow manage to outclass the much prettier Rallisport Challenge's panoramic ones. Some nice road and stone textures and time of day lighting effects are the non-car related visual highlights.
