Codemasters did something dirty, something very dirty. Which usually means that they did something good for all the WRC and rally fans out there. No, it’s not DiRT 4 yet, but it’ll grab everyone’s attention, I’m sure. Especially if you consider yourself to be a classic example of a rally fan, emphasis on classic bit. What I really mean is, you’re a bit older and remember Colin McRae Rally games, from first to last, or should we say to DiRT. If you do remember, then this is the kind of news you’ve been waiting for.
Colin McRae Rally 2.0 stages, cars and locations were recreated in HD, but at the same time they lost none of their charm and character, meaning there are still retro (could say old, but I like the sound of retro in my mind) textures and original-ish physics. This old gem deserved to be resurrected and it now features 30 stages, 130 competitive kilometers, famous WRC cars of that era and to save the best for last, legendary Nicky Grist is your navigator once again.
Speaking of good ideas, how’s this one. After releasing remake of the Colin McRae 2.0, Codemasters should continue on the same path and redo the original, the one and only, the first game that started it all, Colin McRae Rally. I know, it’s a brilliant idea but I have more. They should call it: Colin McRae Rally Begins.
