Colin McRae Rally Mac Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room recently posted a new review of Colin McRae Rally Mac. The game features over 30 cars, more than 300 stages, nine different international locations, and realistic physics and car handling. The Game Room gave Colin McRae a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Both graphics and sound effects are top-notch in this game. You have a few options to adjust that enable you to modulate graphics effects and performance; some are available when you first launch the game, in a front-loading interface Feral tacks on, and others are available within the game’s options itself.

Because of some of the graphics in the game, Colin McRae Rally Mac isn’t supported on MacBooks and Mac minis—systems that use Intel GMA graphics.

Sound effects aren’t extensively used; there a few different view modes, each of which offer you a different audio experience. Viewing the car from above and behind, for example, distances you from engine and road noises, while the bumper’s eye view will give you the steady rumble of the pavement and the clank of the transmission locking into different gears. The game supports game controllers, as well. I tested it with a MadCatz PC Con controller, which worked well—unfortunately I couldn’t test it out with a steering wheel (my fault, not Feral’s).

Colin McRae Rally Mac has multiplayer support, too. Up to four players can play on the same computer using a split screen, and over the Internet, the game defers to GameRanger, the Mac-only online game matching service, in order to find other players. That requires you to download a separate client application and register for an account, both of which are free for the purposes of playing the game online.
