Codemasters brings Colin McRae Rally to Steam

2.0 inspired 1080p game out now on PC and Mac.

Codemasters is bringing last years' Colin McRae Rally reboot to PC and Mac, with the mobile spin on the classic off-road series out on Steam today.

Inspired by Colin McRae 2.0, the new game features 1080p visuals and handling that's true to the PlayStation originals. There are 30 stages, and four cars - the Ford Focus, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Lancia Stratos and Subaru Impreza. Nicky Grist, McRae's original co-driver, also lends his voice.

The original Colin McRae Rally 2.0 came out in 2001, and embarrassingly we've been around long enough to have reviewed it. "There's plenty to do here and it's well worth your money!" wrote some guy called Tom.

Colin McRae Rally eventually evolved into the Dirt series which is due a return in the near future. You can read a series overview we put together back in 2009.

The new version of Colin McRae Rally is out today for PC and Mac, and costs £4.99.
