So with this game there are good sides and down sides.

Good:
  • Game runs on the most basic of machines.
  • Can be kinda fun for a bit if you're bored of anything else (however Dirt 3 is Cheap and that would be too).
  • Fun for younger people.
  • Visuals are rather decent for what it is.

Bad:
  • Game is basic as hell with very little to do and the multiple achivements that you can get are the same thing done over and over.
  • The game has very few sound effects and if you sit next to some "cheering fans" for a while you'll see what I mean.
  • The game is a port of a mobile app, so has no real video options (say for a high or low options on the launcher).

There are probably a few other things that I'm missing but this is the main points that I can remember from the time I've had in game. Personally I'd say get it if you're looking for something to run on a simple game to play on a basic PC but just get Dirt 3 if you're looking for a decent driving game.

Cannot compare with the original Colin McRae games.
Stiff controls and badly executed physics mechanics. You only get one car, the other ones have to be unlocked. And you have to unlock rally tracks as well.

Short speech about why you should not buy this "game" :

- The penalties for damaging your car are stupid
- The way you can damage your car is stupid
- There are only 3x2 rallyes which means about 72 races / divided by 2
- The game is repetitive
- The co-driver is stupid
- The manual shifting does not work properly
- The "remaster" is in fact a tablet game ported to PC
- There are only 4 cars and you must play the same races again and again to unlock the cars

It's not bad, but it ain't great either. It's a fun race game to play on a laptop or a low-end computer, but it's nothing compared to any other Colin McRae game. The price is also a little high for what it is but if you can pick it up for a few bucks while it's on sale, I'd say sure why not.

tl;dr: THIS IS NOT A REMASTER OF THE ORIGINAL PC VERSION. THIS IS A PORT OF A MOBILE GAME. DO NOT BUY!

so, the game sucks in almost every aspect, here's why:

Graphic: probably the only good thing in this game. the nostalgia feeling is there, the game looks really like the old one, althought it has been rewritten in Unity. It uses most of the original assets and adds some realtime shadows, motion blur and sligthly better car models

Sound: awful. the car's sound is flat and boring. co-pilot voice has just few lines and also has bad timing causing them to be played too late or overlap each other

Tracks: 6 rallies in 3 countries (Australia, Greece, France) spanning over 12 stages each (althought some of them are reversed). the tracks come from from the original game (so they're good) but they have been slightly modified to adapt to a mobile game: moslty, the road has been widen, but also, all the surface react the same way, there's no difference between tarmac and grass.

Cars: only 4 cars. Ford Focus, Subaru Impreza '99, Lancer Evolution VI, Lancia Delta. the first tree handle the same way, while the fourth outperform each of the other in every way speed, accelleration and handling (which is completly unrealistic)

Controls: bad. since is a mobile port, the game is not designed to take analogic input, so wether you're using a keyboard or a gamepad the experience is the same. the game also supports steering wheels, mine didn't work and i found complains on the forum that the steering feels digital even with the wheel. it's also very difficult to assign buttons.

Physics: bad, very bad. you can clearly feel that the game was designed for mobile devices, the handling is very simple and braking is un-necessary. impacts are broken wheter you impact perpendicularly or just scracth something the result is the same: the car stops. it also happens to crash into invisible walls in the middle of the track or your car start to bounce around for no reason (especially the Stratos)

Damage: broken. the car get damage even if you drive safely and slowly on a tarmac road. I would not be surpirsed if in the mobile version you have to wait for the car to get repaired or pay to repair it.

Game modes: you can race on a single stage, a whole rally or a championship. the career is made of various championship, the first 6 just made of the 6 available rallies, the others mix the rallies in various ways but not the stages, so you'll have to do the same stages in the same order over and over again. the original game was similar but with different car classes and over 12 countries.

AI: one of the worst example of the rubber-band effect ever seen in a game, and it's also way too easy completly lacking any challenge.


this game it's a scam, they tried to make money on the nostalgia of the players with a very bad port of a very bad mobile game. AVOID even if it's free

this is not real bad game but I cant recommand this game.
Control are ok, but graphisms and render engine are pretty low. if you read the other comment, I agree to the fact that this is just a mobile port game to pc. So buy it if you want to collect game (on sale.. for a couple of buck), but not for nostalgia.

As others already wrote, this has almost nothing to do with the original PC game. It's a mobile conversion, just to make a quick buck.

It’s a mobile game ported to PC. That actually tells you everything you need to know. There are 3 stages that you will race over and over and over again. There are only 4 cars in the game. Yes, only 4 cars! Its repetitive, boring and not worth your time.

I don't really know that this thing is but one thing i know for sure, THIS IS NOT Colin McRae Rally!
The game feels like trash, the few tracks feel all the same, cars don't change the handling in the "different" surfaces , and the phisics are terrible, crashes ridiculous to look at and you only have 4 cars 4!!
They tried to take some aspects of the true colin Mcrae rally 1 and 2.0, so it would feel like such games but they failed, it is not close, it is not even close to a demo of those games, IT IS NOT CLOSE TO ANYTHING CODEMASTERS MADE TO DATE.

Stay away from this horror and save your coins, not even for free this game is worth your time.
