Delivering heart-racing rally action, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 has already been a massive hit on PlayStation since its launch in June. It was the summer?s hottest property and now Codemasters is extending the original design of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 to include network and online play for PC gamers.

Acclaimed as the most breathtaking, exhilarating rally racing experience ever, the game has exceptional heritage: the original title achieved global sales in excess of 1.7 million units, a number one chart placing in 26 countries, and a top 5 chart position in Japan.

Starring McRae?s Ford Focus as one of the 12 rally cars accurately recreated in the game, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 delivers all the speed, all the thrills and looks and feels better than ever imaginable.

In addition to the high-end rally driving action and unparalleled car handling the brand is famous for, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 introduces a riotous arcade game mode. The arcade mode has all the power of a simulator yet has the multi-player challenge of a coin-op game. Offering 6 cars racing head-to-head over 8 unique looped circuits, it delivers an all-out, all-action rough and ready race.

Colin McRae Rally 2.0 wows with jaw-dropping visuals and combines incredibly detailed car and scenery graphics to deliver exhilarating rally courses across the world. Drive hard, contend with the constantly changing weather and take the cars to the edge of control; but go over the edge and you?ll soon discover the out-of-control damage effects.

Spoilers can crack, the back bumper can break off from one corner so that it drags along the ground, windscreens shatter... Created with close attention to detail, all the effects add greatly to the realism of the game.

It?s man and machine against the elements ? weather effects vary throughout each track and are randomly generated, appropriate to each country. Race a country and you?ll experience one set of weather conditions, race it again and experience another completely different set of conditions.

Colin McRae Rally 2.0 offers players five dynamic camera angles to view the action from, including the in-car driver?s ?Head Cam? view which, with its constant jogging, simulates the relentless ? often unforgiving ? road surface?s effect on the car with dramatic effect.

With 40 people working on the game, Codemasters guarantees gamers the drive of their life with Colin McRae Rally 2.0, coming Christmas 2000 on PC.
