    Its minor control issues notwithstanding, this is the best rally racer available on the PSX -- maybe on any platform.

    In every single way, CMR 2.0 just crushes the competition. Every aspect of the game has been improved upon and is delivered in a top quality product. Codemasters once again has created the best rally game on the planet with Colin McRae Rally 2.0.

    If I had to choose my favourite (realistic) racing game, a couple of weeks ago I would have said Colin McRae but now it's most definitely the sequel.
  14. Graphics, handling, sound, depth and polish are all abundant in this game and if you like driving games, or perhaps even if you don't, you will love Colin McRae 2.

    The mud, the jumps, the skids, and fun track designs make Colin McRae Rally 2.0 one very enjoyable racing title.

  19. It's a testament to the addictive gameplay and perfect control of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 that, despite its dated graphics and average-at-best sounds, it still manages to become the best rally racer on PSX.

    Whoa! Racing games have never been as engrossing as this. Once you get the hang of it, CMR2.0 has you glued to the screen, trying to shave off that extra nanosecond off your time, making sure you listen to your codriver, and REALLY, REALLY paying attention to what's going on, moreso than any other racing game ever. Really top-shelf stuff from the Codies. Full Review »
