  1. Precise, demanding, and about as tough as rally racing gets, Colin McRae Rally 04 should be approached by those predisposed to driving on dirt.

    Handling and pop-up have been pretty much fixed, but in exchange we're greeted with a problematic multiplayer mode, some annoying graphical glitches and several other elements that perhaps wouldn't grate so much if Colin McRae 3 hadn't already tested the next-generation water. [Oct 2003, p.110]
  3. Fun while it lasts and good for people who want a challenging and realistic rally game. Rent it. Experience it. Move on to bigger things.

    This is one of my favorite racing games, and no doubt one of the best games i played when i was younger.
    I hope there will come a game like this or a racing game that is innovative like this one does.
    Makes me want to play this again on the Original Xbox.

    Near impossible thanks to everything in sight being locked until youve progressed through the game. How am I supossed to beat the worlds best Near impossible thanks to everything in sight being locked until youve progressed through the game. How am I supossed to beat the worlds best rally drivers...first time...on tracks they know like the backs of their hands...while I cant practice any? Add to that...cheats you have to PAY FOR...and a unique code system where your purchased cheats wont work for anyone ese...or theirs for you...and youve got one big, hard slap in the face.

Still, it's a great deal for 30$ cdn. Full Review »
