Arg the game won't start-up. There this black screen and then the error reporting window. I installed Directx 9.0c but didn't help. Re-installed nvidia 61.77 drivers and didn't help either. Looking for suggestions...

I am surprised Colin McRae Rally 2005 Demo came out in 2004, about 8 months after Colin McRae Rally 2004 Demo came out. I am now downloaded the demo from 3D Gamer's torrent file.

I got this demo earlier myself, and it's deeply unimpressive to me, it plays the same as '04, and graphically it's identical. The only differences i can see are some nice motion blur at times, the hard steer control, and the onscreen damage display. I got '04 for the split screen racing, as that's always fun, but really codemasters are doing an EA Sports with this title now - a yearly refresh with little-to-no gameplay or graphics changes.

For a truly current generation rally game, try the xpand rally demo, or Richard Burn's Rally which went gold today i think. If you want an arcade style rally game then Flatout is where it'll be at.

Xpand Rally isnt out yet & the demo was recalled .
i liked CMR04 very much so i'm sure i'm going to like this one although i'm not a big rally games fan .

btw what video card & drivers you are using ? & what DX9.0 ver ? .. i 've seen some guys having errors at the game's start-up .

CMR 2004 only came out about 3 months back.

I think codemasters are taking the p*ss a bit with this release so soon.

Altho there games are good, but is it worth the upgrade to this latest version?

Forget the Colin McRae rally games, Richard Burns Rally on its 1st outing is much better.

The physics/car handleing engine is awesome. I have it on xbox and it is due for release on pc soon. Never has the feeling of driving a 2ton 300bhp rally car on rough ground at break neck speeds been portrayed more authenticly. It is very difficult because it is more of a simulation than a pick up and play game like CMR but luckily Richard Burns will teach you how to drive in the rally school. Sadly it lacks the ammount of tracks and cars that the latest McRae 05 game has but this is more than made up for by the gameplay. The sound is great too (except the car backfire sounds like a gun) and features Dolby digital 5.1. The pc version should be very modable too because the xbox version uses .ini files .dds .tga etc.for textures and car/game system settings. The pc demo should be out soon.
