The third chapter in our series of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 screenshots is here, and it contains a demonstration of the France and Sweden locations within the game. France is a lot brighter, with grassy hills and a less-than-slippery road to circumnavigate. As such the speeds are consistently higher, and cars with a good top speed seem to do best. Conversely, it's the cars which exhibit quick acceleration that do well in the snow-laden Swedish climes, where getting back up to speed is of paramount importance. The snow makes any sort of speeding nigh-on impossible and the going slow, but the beautiful scenery is enough to keep the eyes busy throughout. The way the snow changes direction depending on the orientation of the camera is a nice touch as well. Fans of the series will no doubt lap up CMR2.0 when it hits stores on the 1st of December, and this writer will definitely be one of the first in line if this "80% complete" pre-release version is anything to go by.
