Game description: This year's installment in the Colin McRae Rally series features new championships, new single- and multiplayer modes, and different car-part-testing challenges. You can drive any car from the start in the Open Championship mode; you can compete in a full rally season; or you can specialize in a 4- or 2-wheel-drive championship. You can also put together your favorite or themed stages, which can include straights, jumps, or hills. More than 20 vehicles, which exhibit improved physics and handling, are available for play, including the Citroen Xsara, Mitsubishi EVO 7, and Subaru Impreza.
There are six championships to complete in the game. There are 4 classes of cars: 4WD, 2WD, Group B and Bonus. The bonus class are cars that are not usually raced in rallies. These cars are only here for extra pleasure.
This fourth incarnation of the Colin McRae Rally series, unlike in the previous three games, has no official WRC team license. All of the cars' liveries are either fictitious or taken from championships other than the WRC.
