Gentlemen Start Your Engines.

The core of Colin McRae Rally 2005 from Feral Interactive is going to be the new multi-discipline career challenge - in which you'll start out in the lower leagues of club rallying, learn your craft in over 20 different classes of rally events including Challenges, Cups, SuperCups, Shields and Championships. With 300 stages of competition, and a huge variety of car classes including 2-Wheel Drive, super 2WD, 4-Wheel-Drive, 4WD Classics and more, it'll be the most complete rally experience ever offered. As well as the Career challenge, you'll be able to jump staight into a 4WD championship, take on a single rally or individual stage, and then take on the world in online rallies with up to 8 players.

The all-new stages feature interactive scenery, so if you push too hard and hit a tree (or when, to be more accurate), you'll see it shudder from the impact and drop leaves from the branches. Collisions will also result in a dazed effect, where your vision will be blurred for a very short period from impact. On the subject of vision, bonnet cam is back for all those who like to gaze down on a pristine engine cover (if things are going well), or the painstakingly detailed under-bonnet engine models (if they aren't).

The acclaimed Colin McRae Rally damage engine has been updated so even light touches can scratch the paintwork - and as usual, panels and components can be deformed and removed in a realistic manner, showing the mechanical components of the car in extreme detail.

It's time to rally. ;)

Since my first lap around Colin McRae Rally 2005 from Feral Interactive with my previous desktop there's been a steady flow of requests for another. This tells me how popular this game will be with you racing enthusiasts. Of course, I can't resist fulfilling all requests so it was my honor to race back into this title. So, with the help of Feral Interactive I was able to create this week's wallpaper. I simply entitled this selection, "Rally", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.

Until then...
