    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.

  1. Car handling and physics are spot-on, and real-time damage has been enhanced to the point where you wince every time you hit a rock or other obstacle, as the dents and dings rack up.
  2. Another excellent outing for Codemasters' rally team, but one that has possibly taken the series to its structural - and commercial - limits. [Nov 2003, p.104]
  3. Possibly the wisest tweak is the balancing of the gameplay, which with a bit of practice ought to see players able to compete with Colin and co. within the matter of an hour or so. Previously the barriers to entry seemed to be set inexplicably high.
