Colin McRae Rally

Recommended Posts

Hey folks!

I was reminiscing the other day and took out this relix and started re-living some childhood memories! 

I was really bad at this game when I was younger (still am) but I loved it and I am still loving it! 
Remake anyone? ;)

Great fun indeed, but I’m not sure there’s really much point in a remake while they’re still making Dirt games. I know they’re different, but they’re not *that* different.

Just out of interest have any of you guys played the version we did for iOS and Android?

What did you think?

@justbiglee I sadly haven't but if I clear some space up on my phone I'll download it and let you know.

Ben is away at E3 right?

@justbiglee Sent him an email regarding the test day back in November, I'll wait until he is back though, it wasn't anything urgent.
Unless you know or can help with any queries from it?

Probably best waiting for Ben tbh I'd probably only have to ask him anyway. He'll get back to you as soon as he can, I've not even spoken to him today so I doubt he even has a net connection to check his emails

I play it on my iPad from time to time.  I like it, tilting the tablet like a wheel works pretty well.  I would buy others if they are released.

Mate that was harsh but I agree! This was my first time playing it from when I got it, no practise at all.
Going from the graphics and physics of these days to that was different.

This game was meant to be played with the bonnet cam + digital direction keys.

Try It and you'll see how fast you can get in this game, specially on asphalt

Its good. To be honest after playing through it, it is faultlass apart frlm the car selection. The ammount is sad. 7 or 6 would be great! and after the stages have a large ammount of times from other drivers, about 12 or 16? So it looks just like CMR 1 leaderboard.

I'm trying to figure out what kind of medium is in those boxes on the TV. They're too thin to be VHS... is that a DVD player on the bottom of the TV? But then why have the VHS!?

I imagine all rally drivers have to worry about such things.

Back then it was quite common to have VHS and DVD because you couldn't easily record to DVD back then. I used to have a VHS to record TV shows and a DVD to watch movies. It could even be LaserDisc or VCD (Video CD's that only held 800mb so the video was so bad, I watched a few on my PC back then but it was terrible, worse than VHS, and it could only do 74 minutes per disc so movies often came on 2 discs).

CMR came out in 1998 which was pretty at the beginning of the DVD's lifespan, and going by that there is 2 covers, I would say it would be VCD. In 1998 DVD Players were very expensive, some of them over $1000. I remembered I waited quite a while to get my first DVD player and even then I kept my VHS for recording and watching TV shows.

This topic is pure nostalgia. Hurts a lot what this series turned into from Dirt2 onwards
