Colin Mcrae Rally is now available for iOS!
Friends, I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for an iOS game. Before Codemasters launched into the ‘Dirt’ series, a phenomenal set of console and PC rallying game, they were known for another game, Colin Mcrae Rally. This series was incredible. The excitement in the TiP office chat was tangible. Cam, our managing editor and myself would probably consider this game to be an integral part of our childhood. This was the first ever game that I bought for PC, and now its here on iOS.
The initial video looks incredible, with graphics reminiscent of the old PC days, harkening back to my own childhood.
The game, available for $4.99 (£2.99), boasts 30 different rally stages, a combined drive of 130 km. It traverses Australia, Greece and Corsica, and offers some of the worlds most legendary rally cars, from the Subaru Impreza, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI, the Lancia Stratos, and of course, Colin McRae’s own Ford Focus.
It’s got a range of game modes, from quick races, rallies and championships. The game is based on Colin McRae 2.0, perhaps one of the best, even featuring the voice of Colin’s co-driver Nicky Grist. With full tilt controls optional, Colin McRae for iPad promises to be one of the most exciting game for iPad right now.
This app, which will available universally on iOS, promises to be a truly excellent tribute to the series, which was so popular back in the day. Colin McRae 2.0 for PC was critically acclaimed, receiving a Metacritic rating of 90 on release.
