  1. Due to its paltry length and lack of decent multiplayer options, I can’t wholeheartedly recommend this game. It is, however, a solid offering.
  2. Codies made too many changes from CMR2 (the front end and in-service menus) and not enough (the graphics!) at the same time.

    I think this entire series is overrated. The cars handle as if there is a single pivot point in the center. Not realistic, and not fun I think this entire series is overrated. The cars handle as if there is a single pivot point in the center. Not realistic, and not fun compared to many other rally racers where the cars behave in a more believable manner. As Gran Turismo proved almost a decade ago, handling is of the utmost importance. Full Review »

    Codemasters really dropped the ball on this one. While the game features gorgeous graphics, it is brought down by a depth of features that Codemasters really dropped the ball on this one. While the game features gorgeous graphics, it is brought down by a depth of features that comes close to free magazine demo disks. No multiplayer rallies, the ability to be only McRae and ONLY drive the Focus really make this game a rental-only, as you won't have anything to do once you complete it. Shame, Codemasters.
