If you were fan of a good old Colin McRae Rally 2 and want to remember that amazing game, wait for a sale and buy it. The gameplay feels very similar to the original Colin 2.

Otherwise, go away. It is obvious from the very beginning that it is just a crappy mobile conversion without regular content.

Colin McRae Rally is not a good game. The controls are very poor, bordering on nigh unplayable at times. The cars bounce more than bobble heads and are ridiculously easy to flip and crash with simple traversing over a simple jump at low speeds. The game offers four cars that have zero difference in handling or acceleration with three of them being locked until progress is made into the championships. There are a number of different championships to play thru and each becomes progressively more difficult.

The game runs fine, looks decent, and could have the potential to be better if a patch to fix the car physics and controls were introduced. For the first few hours, you'll likely tolerate the controls, but after a couple of hours past the point of no longer being refundable, you realize that this was not a good investment. The game does have steam cards and steam achievements so at least those work properly.

Not recommended, not even on a good sale. Save your money for something better.

I'm sure it was good for its time, but for real, it's a racing game. Why would you go this far back in time when there are so many other, better, improved racing games out there that will cost the same?

Time just isn't on the racing games' side.

Play this version of the legendary McRae Rally like it's 1999 again.
Or whenever the ♥♥♥♥ this kind of bullcrap was allowed to exist under his name.

Cautious recommendation. I paid 1.25 EUR and that's a fair price for what this game is. I haven't played Colin McRae Rally 2.0 in a good while, but this feels pretty faithful to the original. The game looks dated, as it should. Driving is stiff and there's way too much grip, same as I remember it, though I don't recall cars ever doing backflips during jumps or getting wrecked just by hitting timing gates. Selection of cars is limited compared to original, there's like 3 out of 8 original rallies. NO RALLY OF FINLAND WHICH WAS BY FAR THE BEST ONE. Car setup is gone. It's barebones Android port, really simple menus with huge buttons and all that. It's no CMR 2.0 2.0 (c'mon Codies!), but in the end it's still pretty fun. Good for a little nostalgia trip.

This game was promoted in a misleading way, if it had have been made clear that it was a mobile port, then perhaps it wouldn't have received nearly as many poor reviews. The fact it was written as an 'HD remake' is EXTREMELY misleading, as there are far fewer features in this game than the origional 1998 release, which is disheartening, considering it is 18 years from release, and this game most likely costs more than the origional.

As a Steam game, the controls are inconsistant to put it as well, as I can. The races were easily winnable on the first play through without even using the brake (either one). There were almost no customisation options availble, even with regards to controller settings.

Ultimately a dissapointing addition to an otherwise well made series.

Though it is worth noting they've improved the graphics since the last 'colin Mcrea Rally' release in 2005 (so not including the 'Dirt' series).

95% of the objects are more solid than my aroused ♥♥♥♥ (The car isn't included in the 95%).
''Maybe jump'' - goes in to it around 50mph, flies for 3 seconds, and car flips around like a bouncing ball
10/10 would drive in to a 3cm diameter tree with a 1 metre hitbox (and get full stopped to 0 mph)

Actually it's quite fun for an archade type racing game. I don't know if this was the demo copy of the 1st Colin McRae Rally. It's not as high quality as those CM 1, 2 and 3. For this archade version I have my screen and game set to 1920 by 1080 and it's pretty good graphics. for $6.99 I'm not complaining.
