Gameplay will feature Championship, Rally and Stages modes, each with single player or multi-player options that offer co-operative and competitive team challenges. Championships include a full rally season, specialist four-wheel and two-wheel drive events, Custom Rallies and an ultimate Expert Championship, which will set highest standards for the most die-hard rally fans.
The only niggle I have with the game (as with all the previous versions) is the sometimes horrific timing (or complete lack) of co-driver instructions. Admittedly it is much less common in this version that previous, but in a couple of places you just wish he'd mentioned the hairpin bend slightly sooner than 30 meters away when you've just had a whole straight he could have told you on. (And don't get me started on the gate in the middle of one of the UK stages!!)
Despite this VERY minor niggle though, excellent and highly recommended.
I was a little concerned, as with all follow up games or films, that I was going to be disappointed by the efforts of Codemasters. NOT SO!!!
I am now totally addicted to this game. Although the car handles totally different to the original game there is a definate realism adding to the overall experience. The graphics of both the playing of the game and the replays of each stage are breathtaking and the attention to detail is staggering.
If you are thinking of buying this game, don't just do it, sit back and enjoy the gaming experience.
