CMR 3 was definitely my first extended experience with rally gaming. Fun fact: I've always used the sticks or even the D-pad on controllers to do racing games, even today! At any rate, Colin McRae Rally leans towards the arcade side of things and doesn't really have a career building mode or anything, just a championship or regular old rallies. It's good time and decent to play, although rally games have come a long way since then. This one has all the things you need: co-driver notes and some twisty roads. The car physics are... fine for the time, but a little ice-rinky and lacking a lot of feeling, which was fine for the day. The overall design and fun factor make this game potentially enjoyable even for non-rally fans.

6 left into caution jump into rally!
