There’s only one Colin McRae and there’s only ever been one true rally gaming experience that can take the exhilarating motorsport and recreate it as an adrenaline rush of a video game. Now the team that created the 4.5million+ selling Colin McRae Rally games are back in the driving seat with Colin McRae Rally 3. Due later this year, the game’s set to deliver unbeatable mud-in-your-eye rally action that will leave its imitators scrabbling in the dirt.

You are Colin McRae in the true rally title that kicks up the dirt for real.

Currently in development at Codemasters, the game design retains the essential thrill-drive playability that made the previous titles such major events. Colin McRae Rally 3 gives players one simple instruction: You are Colin McRae…

The gameplay challenge has the player taking on the role of McRae as he’s given a 3 year contract to win a series of championships for Ford Rallye Sport. Colin McRae Rally 3 majors on the experience of the player-controlled McRae and his essential interaction with co-driver Nicky Grist.

McRae team front man Guy Wilday heads the Studio responsible for the title and comments: "This is all about personal involvement in a championship. No one’s done anything like this with a rally game before."

With the championships taking place over eight countries and the promise of being the most graphically impressive rally game ever designed, the latest in the Colin McRae Rally will launch later in 2002 and raise the bar another notch for rally games.
