The only reason one would recommend this game is for easy 100% achievements. Beyond that, if the price was a dollar it is maybe understandable being bored...It has four cars, each are very similar. Damage slows you down a pinch, but not significant enough. If I had this on mobile it wouldn't be as bad. Being on pc the lack of care shows. There is hidden spots on the track you slam into for no reason. Any surface you are drifting on ice. Overall 4/10 (and that's being nice)

I was not able to bear playing this game for more than half an hour.

Except for some fine graphical effects and acceptable rally stages, this game is comprised of only poor or horrible elements: wonky physics, no analog steering, terrible optimization (runs worse than DiRT 3 for me) and no interesting completion rewards.

To be honest this game shouldn't cost more than 1€.

This game is not awful. The graphics are not good (the vuvuzela sound is annoying as sh*t though) and the controls are okay I guess...but this game is neither worth your time nor money. It is just a "cheap" cash in so don't ever buy it, not even on sale.

NIezły port z androida. Do 2.0 czy nawet jedynki się nie umywa ale jak za 6zł to nie jest źle. Napewno tabele wyników(czasów) dla każdej trasy i każdego auta są super. Szkoda żę gra nie jest rozwijana bo 3 kraje i 4 auta to mało.

As a small arcade rally game, I believe it's a port from phones. It's actually really fun, I would reccomend it+ it doesn't cost much.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!
I really wanted to give this a good review. I had a lot of great memories playing the original 2 Colin McRae rally games as a kid. When I saw this pop up on Steam I didn't hesitate to buy it.
That was huge mistake. I thought I would play it through before reviewing it in the hope it would redeem itself, but it just got worse. Firstly this is not a remake, rather its a re release of a mobile verion of the game. the controls are evidence of this. No matter how hard I try I cannot get this to work with either my controller or steering wheel. The inputs seem to change everytime you play the game or just flat out refuse to work.
There were 16 cars in the original Colin McRae 2.0 game, this has 4!
The menus are awful, the resolution keeps changing between menus and racing, the physics are completely broken, and due to the control issues I cant finish the game. also whenever you touch the steering controls it seems to cut the power to the car, making it basically impossible to complete.
Codemasters have majorly dropped the ball with this one, which is such a shame, because they have done so well with DiRT Rally.

- this game stimulate your competitive part
- has controller support
- have trading cards
- is a truly racing game
- has singleplayer mode

I really don't see why everyone is so negative towards this game. I get it, it's a mobile port. I get it, it isn't as good as the old PS1 and PS2 games. But for what it is, it isn't half as bad as other people make it out to be.

the good:
- loading screens look like the ones in good old colin mcrae rally.

the bad:
- graphics might be ok for mobile game but they are ugly.
- physics engine sucks and sometimes malfunctions, glitchy
- menus are annoyingly slow for no reason
- everything needs to be unlocked and in specific order

might be what state of the art is on mobile but inexcusable crap on pc.

Awful, 20y old graphics in 2016, awful settings interface, couldn't even get my gamepad to work, then sound stopped working when I launched it the 2nd time in full screen and I had to restart the windows audio service; game interface/menus generally horrible. Was this a 12y old school project?

The sad part about this is that there is still people that cant tell the difference between an HD port of mobil game and an HD remake , first of all this game is the HD port of a mobil game to pc that was made based on the first colin mcrae rally game from ps1 era (not the second one) so you already have an idea about the overall quality of the game , the graphics are mediocre but not bad ( i saw worst then this) and still enjoyable (people are made cause there is no graphics options but like i said this is a port mobil game so no need for them), sound effects are nice and at point , the gameplay is smooth , the cars are few but well made.
but that doesn't mean the game has no problems, i faced some and really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off here some :
- car physics when you jump are totally rekt so don't even think about jumping ,you can fix this just by slowing down.
- no multi but for me it wasn't really a problem cause i don't like multiplayer anyway
- the game becomes really really unfair in the end ( the last 3 tournaments) , Colin mcRae becomes OP driving a boosted Ford and your car becomes really fragile , easily damaged just by driving it and you will rage just to get the 3rd position.
its not the perfect game out there but i'm pretty sure that the devs are aware of it , thats why the price is 6.99$ i mean c'mon there are games much much worse than this one and they cost double and + its on sale for the most of the time + it has cards and achievements
i recommend it for those who wants to remember the good old days of the ps1 ;)

This game is terrible, it's essentially just a mobile game ported over to PC.

It has no customization, the tracks are all crap, the car is crap, the car handles like crap, the game sounds like crap.

This game is just crap.

Mobile port. Mobile port. MOBILE PORT.

I shouldn't really have to say anything else. But if I have to, it's a featureless, bland, ugly, slow, clunky, empty shell of a racing game vastly surpassed in quality and content by a ps1 game of the same name.

There are only four cars in it. You can't customize them in any way.

The AI drivers are invisible.

The backgrounds are 2d sprites.

There is only one music track, as far as I can tell.

Mobile port.

That is all.

Na wstępie gratuluję każdej osobie , która na była tę grę na promocji 80% czy tam 90% zniżki, bo tyle ta gra jest warta .Jeśli ktoś lubi magię powinien w to zagrać, auto potrafi,latać-w dodatku tor lotu samochodu zależy od jego humoru . Nie umywa się „to coś” do oryginalnego colina 2. Tak naprawdę są tu tylko trzy kraje i cztery samochody na całą grę. Przejście kariery polega na przechodzeniu tego samego z coraz bardziej „śmiesznymi’ czasami na odcinkach. Mówiąc wprost przechodzimy około sześć razy te same trzy kraje, czasami tylko w innej kolejności. Z nowych rzeczy jest tylko grafika poprawiona i dodany efekt rozmycia. Ode mnie jako fana colinów i ogólnie zręcznościówek 3/10 Pozdrawiam Codemasters bardziej się nie dało schrzanić gry ;)
ENG
At the outset, I congratulate every person who purchased the game on the promotion of 80% or 90% discount there, because so much the game is worth If somebody likes magic should play it, the car can fly-in addition the flight path of the car depends on its humor . Not a patch on "something" to the original colina 2. In fact, there are only three countries and four cars for the entire game. Career transition is to transition the same with more and more "funny" sometimes stretches. Put simply go about six times the same three countries, sometimes just in a different order. With new things only improved graphics and added blur effect. From me as a fan colinów and generally arcade 3/10 greet Codemasters more could not screw up the game;)

Badly made mobile port. But i don't mind it.
I don't care about graphics (duke nukem had better looking 2D backgrounds 20 years ago), don't care about bad physics (its arcade after all) or that there are only 4 cars (sic!).

But I will not forgive one thing. This game is f*** boring.
Have you ever almost fall asleep during race? Have you hit the wall and realised that after one minute because you were thinking about what to prepare for dinner? Yeah - it's THAT boring.

Also i had weird controler problems. I changed buttons bindings in launch menu and ocassionally they changed themself during race. Only way to change it back was to Alt+F4 and running game again.

Colin Mcrae Rally for Steam is a wonderfully crappy experience that everybody ages 0 through 100 should experience. The overall horrible physics paired with irresponsive controls make for an absolutely blissful playtime when racing throughout Australia over and over on the same few tracks.

I felt right at home when my brake barely even responded, or when my speed sporadically went up or down a lot with the lightest change of the gas trigger. It felt like I was truly there.

The graphics were immersive enough to fool me into thinking I was actually looking at my PS1 over a CRT TV. I loved the completely flat bushes and trees, as well as the completely solid tree texture surrounding the tracks. I wish more games were like this.

The sounds were beautiful. I loved the monotonous whispers of the co-driver into my ear as I flew against every tree on the course. I loved the sound of a tin can engine pushing itself far too hard.

I would truly recommend this game to anyone if they want to have a delightful experience of what a racing game shouldn't be. 10/10 would give more money if DLC existed.

Real talk, go play the actual Colin McRae Rally 2.0 for PC, it's an actual game instead of this tin can of a mobile "port."

I grabbed this game on -75% or -80% sale, yet I still regret it.

While this game might be bearable on mobile, it's absolutely horrible on PC. Its overall sloppiness (weird physics, terrible controls) makes it plain frustrating. The game is hard, but not because it's challenging - it's hard because it's broken.

If you really want to play Colin McRae Rally, just grab good old CMR 2.0. This "remaster" has virtually no strong points over the original game.
