'Colin McRae Rally 04' (Xbox) - Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 2, 2003 @ 1:15 a.m. PDT

Colin McRae Rally 04 is set to be the total rally video gaming experience with eight game modes, an advanced visual engine and an all-new style. The September launch is not the only surprise Codemasters has lined up. The engine that drives the series' sublime car handling has been enhanced to a new level of detail. A batch of new screens just rolled in ...

Previously the car handling employed a steering aid, which had the effect of making the car move around a central pivot point. Now the aid's been removed, effectively taking the stabilisers off, providing for a more professional, realistic and natural handling experience and you'll notice the difference, especially when performing skids and powerslides.

Features :

  • Choose from over 20 rally cars and compete in 8 game modes including 4-wheel drive, 2-wheel drive, Group B and Expert Championships (with single and multiplayer options).
  • New, faster game engine for improved textures, new animated environments, and incredibly detailed terrain visuals. Enhanced replay cameras and new in-game "bumper cam" also feature.
  • 8 international rally locations (UK, Sweden, USA, Finland, Australia, Spain, Greece, Japan), 6 rally stages in each, 8 shakedown events, and 4 Superspecial stages.
