Genre: Arcade, Racing, Retro
The Colin McRae Rally games have always had a superb racing system. No one will deny that. But the presentation and focus of the series has certainly shifted in recent years.
What was once a serious rally sim for geeks with expensive steering wheel peripherals has become gaudy and brash - Americanised, if you'll forgive the stereotype.
DiRT 2, especially, felt almost sacrilegious for using the late rally driver's name. It turned a prestigious sport into a brainless festival hoedown, and carried an obnoxious interactive ad campaign that had you inking tattoos onto boobs.
Colin McRae Rally is a fine racer, but it's sorely let down by some forgotten modes and features, and those seriously outdated visuals
