superb debut on the PS2,
This review is from: Colin McRae Rally 3 (PS2) (Video Game)
immediately playable, this game also looks amazing - some of the weather effects and background scenery are fantastic. easy to pick up but more difficult to master this is a big improvement on earlier versions of the series.
it may not have official drivers and racetracks but codemasters know a thing or two about gameplay and it's this that really comes to the fore.
in championship mode you get to race a three year contract as colin mcrae, fine tuning your car after each race and unlocking extra stages and secret vehicles as you progress.
in stages mode meanwhile, it's a pure race against the clock as you compete on the tracks unlocked from the championship mode.
there's even a 2 player spilt screen mode to keep you entertained and after playing this game you get some idea just how it feels to make "150 decisions every minute".
a great game with what looks like being a long lifespan...
