  1. Much-improved this time around, the only things I can hold against it are the car's questionable propensity to stick to the track even when you steer it markedly off-course, and the rather sizeable learning curve for newcomers.
  2. Thrilling action in the best simulation of a sport unfamiliar to many Americans. Get it, even if you have to import it.
  3. 89
    Good luck beating this monster on Expert difficulty. As long as you can find more time and don't mind putting in the time-attack sessions trying to find speed, this game will last you awhile.
  4. 90
    McRae Rally 2.0 oozes quality and demands to be played again and again.
  5. When something is put together that, at first look, seems so simple, yet challenges by pumping the intensity level and challenging players to use their reflexes and brain, it qualifies as a game that is a great experience.
  6. A well-crafted off-road racer that'll appeal to sim buffs and arcade fans alike. [Apr 2001, p.85]

    Very excellent action with the best that colin mcrae has to offer on PC. A true classic now only if they would make a HD remake then we could be happy. Full Review »
