"Colin McRae Rally is a racing video game series developed and published by Codemasters.
Started in 1998, the franchise has been a critical and commercial success and is generally acknowledged as a pioneer of realistic rally sports racing games. However, the car handling in the most recent games is best described as arcade. The series is named after the late World Rally Championship driver Colin McRae, who provided technical advice during development.
Despite McRae's death in September 2007, Codemasters retained the use of his name on their rally games."
