Colin McRae Rally on iOS now, launch trailer & screens inside

Thursday, 27th June 2013 09:59 GMT By Dave Cook

Colin McRae Rally is the new iOS racer from Codemasters, bringing together 30 tracks from PSone classic Colin McRae Rally 2.0. We’ve got the launch trailer and details inside.

In a press release sent to VG247 this morning, Codemasters confirmed that Colin McRae Rally will cost £2.99 / €4.49 / $4.99, and runs on iPad 2 or newer, iPhone 4S/5, or 5th gen iPod touch devices.

The game was revealed on the New Zealand iTunes store ahead of time yesterday, and you can check out all the gameplay, track and car details here.

On the release, senior producer Peter Harrison said, “It’s an exciting challenge to bring Colin McRae Rally to iOS for the first time. We wanted to make tackling every turn and jump of the point-to-point courses on your smart device as satisfying as playing those classic Colin McRae Rally games on home consoles of the day.

“We’ve worked hard to make sure that the physics and car handling systems let you feel the wheels gripping and slipping on different surfaces like gravel and asphalt. We’ve also paid attention to improving the graphical models and textures to look super-sharp on today’s screens, along with sourcing high quality engine sounds.”

What do you think of the above? Let us know below.

    Why would anyone want to play a race game on a tablet or smartphone? This is like going back to pc-racers from the 90′s without decent analog controls.

    Lot of money for a rehash really. But good luck to those who want a trip down memory lane whilst taking a dump playing this.

    Colin McRae died in september 15, 2007. It is about time Codemasters stop this milking of the name. The last good Colin McRae Rally game was Colin McRae Rally 2.0 and it was released in 2001. All the games after that have had horrible controls, and have suffered by going multiplatform release. Later games like the Colin McRae Dirt series was ruined by dlc that stare you in the face on the screen. and left you with a feeling after you payed the 60 dollars, you haven’t bought the full game.

    Now we have this mobile phone/tablet crap…

    Enough is enough Codemaster, if you continue on this road i am not buying any of your games ever again.
