Colin McRae: Codemasters' newest release in the massively popular Grand Prix series is arguably its best, with many fans calling it the best of the series so far. Colin McRae: Codemasters is an extremely fun and addictive game that picks up immediately where its predecessors left off, with players taking on the role of motorsport legend Colin McRae, who finds himself in the center of a power struggle after failing a big race. The main story line of the game takes place on an island called Arrakis, where several racers attempt to win a tournament for the chance to win the most coveted title. A number of players are eliminated during the race, and only two remain - but the race isn't over yet!
Colin McRae is unfortunately killed in a dirt bike crash, leaving behind a mysterious suitcase containing photos of his funeral and a list of demands from those who want to collect the items contained within. However, with the help of a curious man called Max, players must race through the island and find out why the others were killed as well as how to uncover the remaining pieces of the puzzle that are responsible for Colin's untimely death. The two main characters are playable throughout the single player game - using a selected controller to make every frame of action possible, and the recently announced online mode, where players can race against each other online using their computers. In either mode, players will find a variety of tracks, different game-play mechanics and a wide range of vehicles to use and manipulate.
Colin McRae: Codemasters have stated that there will be no more Colin McRae games after the release of this game, meaning that fans looking to get their fix of the racer should probably pick up their next console now while there's still time. We'll keep an eye out for any new Colin McRae games soon enough so you can feel extra secure in the thought that we'll probably just get another codemasters game instead. And hey, if it's got to be Colin then why not go for Codemasters' other popular releases such as Ridge Racer and Sengoku: Japan. We're sure you won't be disappointed.
