Mac game publisher
on Friday announced plans to bring Colin McRae 2005 to the Macintosh. The rally racing sim will be released for the Mac platform this fall, according to the publisher, which plans to follow up this week’s announcement with a “mini-site” it will post at the end of next week.
Colin McRae 2005 is the latest iteration of the enormously popular rally racing game from Codemasters. The game puts you behind the steering wheel of one of more than 30 different real-life rally racing vehicles, including Volkswagen’s Golf MK5, Toyota’s Celica GT-FOUR, the Peugot 206, Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evo VIII and many others. You drive in more than 20 individual rally events comprising more than 300 different stages, in international locations like Germany, Sweden, USA, Finland, Australia, Spain, Greece, UK and Japan.
A multi-discipline career challenge puts you in the lower leagues of club rallying as you build your skills and win challenges, Cups, SuperCups, Shields and Championships, racing 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel-drive and more. You can also go straight into a 4WD championship, taking on a single rally or individual stage. New interactive scenery reacts if you suddenly go off the track — hit a tree and you’ll see it shudder and drop leaves from the branches, and you will suffer some problems yourself (blurred vision). Colin McRae 2005 also features an advanced damage engine that will affect your driving ability as panels and components get banged up when you drive roughly.
