Boomtown writes: "Colin McRae Dirt we felt was a missed opportunity. A gorgeous graphics engine coupled with some great gameplay modes should have resulted in Codemasters' best rally game to date. Alas that wasn't to be the case as the game featured awful car handling - leading many, Boomtown included - to branding it a rallying game with no rallying in it.
But credit to Codemasters, the company has sucked down the criticism and although its not watering down the cringworthy fake Americanism for the sequel, it seems the most important aspect - the handling - has been fixed. And this is now a game we're really looking forward to."
