Colin McRae Rally Review (OnePlus One): Finally a Car Simulator on Android, a Pretty Decent One Too (Video)
While playing with a OnePlus One handset for a few days, I spotted the brand new Colin McRae Rally title on the Play Store with a price reduction and decided to give it a go. This game is priced at $2 now and it’s both hard and nice at the same time. You’ll be taking part in a rally or two, in this niftly crafted simulator.
There are 30 rally stages here, including ones in Australia, Greece, Corsica and the title features concepts like damage, physics and overall it’s a well put together simulator. There are 4 cars here: a Ford Focus, Subaru Imprezza, Mitsubishi Lancer and a special unlockable Lancia. The game modes include Championship, Single Rally, Single Stage and there’s not much variation in that area. Graphics run at 60 FPS, but still there’s the occasional pixelated public or trees.
There are no IAPs here and the sounds of the engine and copilot commands are all believable. If my understanding of the game concept is correct, you will be able to do repairs on your car between stages, but that will set you back seconds. While driving recklessly, you may crack your windshield, make your engine smoke, or pop the hood’s car. The control is either tilt-based or button-based and Colin McRae Rally offers both great feel and great looks.
It’s only fun for the simulator lover, for all of you fans of Burnout, Asphalt and NFS may not dig this title. If you love Gran Turismo, like I do, you’ll feel right at home. We give this game a 9 out of 10 and you can download it here.
