Absolute PlayStation2


"Colin McRae Rally series out on to the next-gen platform for the first time to flex its muscles as the king of the forests. The marshall counts down the seconds…the engine screams…McRea drops the clutch and the Ford Focus leaps forward to defend the throne from the pretenders, but has the rally daddy been away too long?"

Kristaps Stirna  "I Think This Is Great Game. All Those Who Rate The Rally Games By Their "realness" Will Love It Because The Car Feels Soooo Real. The Negative Aspects Of This Game Are: You Can Choose Only One Car, No Guides On Setups, Driver Standings During The Rally Are Shown Only For A Brief Moment And Rally Order Is Wrong - Sweden And Uk First.

Overall Its A Very Good Game. I Loved It And Suggest It To Others :)"

Goran Sjorensen  "Best Game I've Played So Far, On Any Platform. Period.
P.s. Only Thing Better Than Playing Collin Mcrae Rally 3 On Ps2 Would Be Driving Real Ford Focus Wrc On Your Local Road. The Game Is Much Safer, Though."

Neil Hutchinson  "Well, All I Can Say About This Game Is I've Sold It On!

We All Want To Be Able To Beat The Machine. Well In This Game You Can't (not Really). So The Alternative Is Beat Yourself (your Last Time That Is) And You Can't Even Do That. Codemasters Have Gone For The 'realistic' Element Where If Your First On The Stage There Wont Be Anytimes Clocked So You Cant Find Out How You Have Done. But At Least Tell Us At The End Of The Stage....nope!! You Just Get A Glimpse Of Your Overall Time On A Screen For About 1 Second. So You Can't Even See If You've Beaten The Rest Of The Runners As It Is An Overall Time & Not A Stage Time.

But I Am Infact Lying, There Is A Way .... By Being Awful At The Game. If You Run Last All The Time .... Then You'll Be Last On The Stage So Finding Out How Crap You Are!! So My Tip Is .... Well There Aren't Any As Being Crap Is Easy!"

Very Poor - an embarrassment to the console
Nothing spectacular, but still functional
Quality visuals that clearly show the power of this machine
Graphical masterpiece that is amongst the best currently available
Pushing the visual capability to it's absolute limit
This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

Makes little use of the CD capacity and audio hardware
Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action
Quality atmospheric sounds that are highly effective
Music and effects that greatly enhance the overall enjoyment
Sounds like this were never thought possible on this console

PLAY-ABILITY (The way the game actually plays)
No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect
Top-notch title with nearly flawless gameplay
Little room for improvement and the best game of its type
Introduces new gameplay aspects not thought possible for this console

Wouldn't even buy for your worst enemy
Life-span would be a short rental period
Recommended purchase which should offer a weeks enjoyment
Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
