I've been reading up on this game and I hear that the single player is supposed to be great.

However I've been trying to find out more on the multiplayer aspect. I heard that you can race with up to 4 friends simultaneously, however you won't be able to see each other on each individual screen. Is that true?

Also is there damage in multiplayer mode? The main reason I want this game is mainly for the multiplayer, but if you can't even see or interact with your friends, then I guess I will have to stick w/ Rallisport.

First read this thread on the general discussion board......

And no you can't see your opponents in multiplayer (don't really understand this :( ) So stick with Rallisport if that's what you're looking for in multiplayer.

As far as I know, you compete against your friends time; much like real Rallying.

If there were other cars on the track, it would hinder your time.
Colin Mcrae 3 is going for absolute realism :)

Which would you rather do though, compete against your friend's time or knock him off a hill into a bunch of trees? :D They could've made an exception for multiplayer.

But wheres the realism?! :D

You are right, real Rallying is done with times, not head to head 'racing'. I think it just makes it that much better, I'll have to try the game.

there are no other cars on the track, it you vs the clock, even in mulitplayer, but believe me, the best rally game out there.
