  1. Daily Radar
    Perhaps the most gorgeous, addictive and exceptionally challenging rally title ever to hit a home console.
  2. 100
    Its minor control issues notwithstanding, this is the best rally racer available on the PSX -- maybe on any platform.
  3. 94
    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.
  4. Colin McRae Rally 2 has surpassed a lot of expectations, providing yet again one of the most incredible driving experiences around.
  5. CNET Gamecenter
    Arcade racing aficionados might be daunted by the learning curve, but sim fans will find enough depth here to keep playing for a long, long time.
  6. GMR Magazine
    McRae games were and are the best. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  7. Spank!
    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.
  8. Total Video Games
    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.
  9. 90
    The mud, the jumps, the skids, and fun track designs make Colin McRae Rally 2.0 one very enjoyable racing title.
  10. 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.
  11. This is just a smart, well-made racer. Props to Codemasters for putting out the two best rally games ever. If you like video games and have two opposable thumbs, I recommend that you buy this game.
  12. It's got the greatest rally driver endorsing it, all the cars, absolutely jaw-dropping graphics, realistic handling... but somehow, it just DOESN'T QUITE make it.

    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 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 »
