it is sooooooooooooooo fun
When i got this i could not stop playing this game. It is so much fun to slam outher cars off the track and to fall into a ditch :). Me and my friends play online alot and we have sooo mutch fun doing that.
Best game ever.
Ok lets start off with graphics. These graphics are better than Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. I really can't see how they can improve there graphics, nothing is perfect but this is. Very long career, After playing 7 hours straight I am on 8%. You can put it on 5 modes; Easy, Casual, Hard, Expert, and Hardcore. I was playing on Easy so it was a bit easy but if you play for 7 hours on hard then you would have 2% complete. Very awesome crashes like barrel rolls. Online a same as career mode but with real people not computers and you can level up like you can in MW3. The sound is at a extreme level of awesomeness. A must buy.
cant beat it!
awsome game the graphix are amazing crash details awsome
What a racing game should be!
Everything about this game is so well done - the handling while driving is awesome, the music is upbeat, graphics are sensational, the voice-overs are even funny, and the replays are awesome to watch (makes you feel like a badass when you see how well you whip around a hairpin turn). If you're a fan of racing games only for vehicle customization it's not meant for that, but if you're a racing game fan it's a must have.
this game is great all around. graphics are good, gameplay is awesome, and it can get a little challenging considering what difficulty u have it on. one things that is great about this game is the realistic racing and crashes. one flaw this game has is...........idk, it has none. BUY IT!!
As always, Colin Mcrae games are in continuous improvement, and the next I hope includes Moto Cross and ATV
its missing something
my #1 complaint is its not very obese with cars like the first one which bring the games popularity down.
One Teensy little thing...
Here's yet another otherwise terrific Codemasters game with the same glaring flaw...I can't hear the engine. It's buried waaaaay down in the sound design. I usually play with the sound turned up so loud my roommate will insist I put on headphones. I like to hear the engine like I was sitting in the car itself. Shift changes need to occur at precise rpm and part of setting the gearing to advantage is being able to hear when the engine is at the peak of it's power band.If a racing game offers the feature, I usually turn the music off as the only song I should hear is the one the car is singing. I'm starting to feel an omninous dread about their forthcoming F1 title. If you can't hear the engines in those cars, you'll never be competitive at the increased difficulty settings. My problem is that once you go sim racing, its hard to come back.Codemasters: more engine sound...much less tire squeal & crunchy guitar riffs. Let me know when you want to QC the sound design in your new F1 title. I'm your guy.
I was highly impressed with the sequal to one of the greatest racing games ever made. Besides the fact that the most you can do to your vehicle is put on preset paint jobs, little dashboard toys and set the gears, this game id definatley worth buying. It still has that arcadey feel to it and it is easy to measter of course with the choice of difficulty. There tons of tracks, vehicles of all sorts and the graphics are something to frame aswell. To me its was money well spent. All of the vehicles, sponsors, tracks ect are fully licenced so you dont get any of those corny names the developers came up with while they were drinking their coffee in the morning. You also get to gain the trust of pro drivers such as Travis Pastrana, Ken Block, Dave Mirra and many more. BUY IT
Best racing game available now
When I first bought this game, I had high expectations based upon how good the original, and Grid were. Boy was I unsuspecting of just how good this game would really be. I should probably point out the only two flaws i've noticed, being the lack of track variety, (Usually 2 or 3 tracks per area, ran reversed and/or at different times of day) and vehicle variety (Though you find yourself getting used to a handful of them anyway). When you up the difficulty, the races usually become quite challenging, unlike the typical "dominate everything" racing game. The graphics are simply amazing, the interface great, and vehicle controls are really realistic, and also fun. Usually racing games don't get the recognition they deserve, and aren't in the running for game of the year. Based upon how good this game is, I think it should definitely be considered.
