Colin McRae Rally $2.99 --> $0.99



So is this a good pickup at this price? Does this still suffer the bug with Australia?

Worth a buck for sure, but probably recommend an ipad 4 or newer.

Dropped in price again. Is this a port or is it entirely different, never got a definite answer.

"Colin McRae Rally isn't simply a port of the original PlayStation title. The game takes its design cues form the later 2.0 version but has been severely limited for iOS. There are only three environments (each split into two rallies, so six, if we're nitpicking), Australia, Greece and Corsica and four cars to play with, compared to the ancient, yet still brilliant offering for PlayStation. And to top it off, the ability to set up your car's handling characteristics for the various environments has been left on the cutting room floor." From the TA review.

Definitely one of the better racing/rally games. Bought it for the full price and didn't regret. Recommended!

Main thread.

tA review (Burnett): "Along with the spot-on car physics are the quality sound effects that brilliantly convey the piston pumping and gravel scraping characteristics of a high powered dirt machine and Nicky Grist is back in the co-driver's seat to do his best to make sure you don't meld your motoring metal with large, inanimate objects."
