Over the weekend an old classic skidded into BlackBerry World - Colin McRae Rally. This one brings back memories from many years ago when I first had a PlayStation and would spend hours trying to beat the clock on all the different rally tracks around the world.

If you are an all touch BlackBerry 10 user you'll be able to have the same experience with you wherever you go. Priced at $2.99/£2.00 I suspect this one could well be a great investment.

I'm not going to go too deep into the game right now as we will have a full review of Colin McRae Rally for you later in the week. If you do download it now feel free to air your views in the comments. If you don't see me writing posts in the next few days it's because I've been sucked into the game and can't put it down!

Features include:

  • Get behind the wheel of legendary rally cars, the Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Lancia Stratos and Colin McRae's Ford Focus. Pace notes read by professional rally co-driver Nicky Grist help you fully commit through each and every stage.

  • With the critically acclaimed Colin McRae Rally handling, damage and physics model under the hood, feel the thrill of putting pedal to metal across different surface types and blast through beautiful, challenging environments.

  • Take on different game modes including quick races, full rallies and Championships and customise your experience with different controls schemes and views. Post your best time to the leaderboards and unlock achievements with full Game Center support

Oh that's great. I just got it.

Swiped via CB10 with my T-Mobile USA (Only T-Mo rep still pushing  ) new  BlackBerry Z30 (STA100-5), son! The Thor's Hammer of phones! Member of "Club Z30 "..... the most exclusive club in mobile. Once you go BlackBerry, everything else is wack-berry! #longestsignatureeverthatishortenedabit

So happy they brought this to BB10. The android version though Snap wouldn't even start.

So far working perfectly on my Z30.

Lots of fun. Could be a tad more refined with the steering inputs, but I don't regret spending what I did on it. And I very rarely pay for apps.

You're right. Needs either a bit of refinement on the game's side, or more training on the driver's, haha. At least for me. ;-)

Touch steering feels unnatural, literally can't handle it, tilt is so much better.

Why do you have gyro in your phone and don't use it? :-)

Zzzzwiped from a Zedevice....

The gyro question was meant to be rhetorical, sure I found the tilt controls. Still need some training or the app a little refinement.
Thanks!

Agree with you on the tilt steering. Can't beat it. Downloading the game right now..

Have to recommend Real Racing3 also. My absolute favorite game. I got mine through Snap and runs perfectly.

Lovin' BB10!

Pretty decent game for mobile devices, I also have it on my iPhone.
Happy that it's available for BlackBerry

I tried this just a few weeks ago on my z30 downloaded from snap (and transferring the obb file). Worked quite well for me at that point, but the longer stages take a while to load.

Anyone mind commenting on how the performance is on this version? I already paid $1.99 for the android version, don't mind paying again but only if it's worth it.

IPhone version works 10X better, on Z30 is playable but lame compared with other platforms.

Sure they would have optimized for the larger target market. Let's be glad it's in BBW and hope optimizations will come.

This game had a "flat" UI in the year 2000!

Holy cr*p! Now we are talking! What a game... what a legend - Briefly had the pleasure of meeting him at a network Q rally. Those were the days - when 3DFX ruled!

It's a brilliant game on my Z30. The evening has flown by whilst playing this. It has worked extremely well for me on 10.3.

Until someone above said about the longer stages loading times I didn't notice. It isn't long enough to worry about.

I wouldn't want to play this on a Q10 or an i-phone because of the tiny screens for this game.

I don't usually pay for games but this one was a must !!

Wow. Another ten years we'll have a generation that has no clue who Collins McRae is and his significance to Rally Racing.
