The sequel to the genre-defining Colin McRae Rally, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 features the works-entered cars and rallies of the 2000 World Rally Championship (albeit with outdated liveries on many cars, and Toyota - who quit at the end of 1999 - in place of Skoda) and a minimalistic user interface which has aged quite well.

Regional Differences

Navigator Voice Acting and Game Speed

  • Whilst the original European PlayStation release had McRae's co-driver Nicky Grist lend his own voice for the game's pace notes, this was replaced by an unknown voice actor in the North American version. The game's speed is about 12% slower in the NA release. The Japanese release also features Nicky Grist as the codriver, but runs at the same speed as the North American version.
  • NA version has a different Codemasters logo at the beginning.
  • NA version has different lines at some country intro FMV's and the text of it seen in the race info screen.
  • JP version lacks the the option to toggle between KPH and MPH.

Subaru Impreza

EU 1.0, US JP, EU 1.1

In addition, the Japanese version replaces the censored 555 livery on the Subaru Impreza (as driven by McRae in 1998) with a new livery featuring the logos of Spike and Sammy, who published the CMR series in Japan. This livery is also seen on the European release's second revision, as well as the Game Boy Advance version of CMR2.0, which ironically didn't see a Japanese release. The Spike version of the Impreza was driven by Toshihiro "Toshi" Arai in some races of the 2000 WRC season.

Revisional Differences

To do:
What letters triggers this issue?

Aside from the Subaru Impreza changes mentioned above, both PAL revisions have compatible save files, outside both revisions failing to load drivers created with certain 3 letters combinations ("PSX" being one of them) using the other revision - which are also shown as "Corrupted Data" when looking at them through PS2 and its Browser in the case of v1.0.
