Product Description

Product Description

RalliSport Challenge delivers an action-packed racing experience by combining four different types of rally competition--Hill Climb, Traditional Rally, Rally Cross and Ice Racing--into one pulse-pounding game.

This variety of race types allows gamers to experience traditional rally racing against the clock as well as fierce, wheel-to-wheel grudge matches against computer opponents or over a network against friends. With 29 licensed cars and (several "bonus" vehicles), 48 tracks, realistic AI opponents and spectacular crashes with realistic car damage, RalliSport Challenge packs fun and thrills into every race across a variety of terrain.

Amazon.co.uk Review

With over 20 classic rally cars and close to 50 different tracks, Microsoft's Rallisport Challenge provides a lasting trial for rally enthusiasts. The stunning graphics are the first thing to strike you about the game. Photorealistic textures, solar reflections, detailed vehicles and sumptuous terrain, landscapes and horizons provide a real visual feast for your eyes. The game itself has a strong arcade feel to it.

There are several modes of play, with the predominant role belonging to Career mode. This consists of a series of mini tournaments where you acquire points for position, time, top speed and damage. Reaching points thresholds unlocks more tournaments and more cars. These tournaments usually consist of several timed stages, or in the case of rally cross, a series of races against three computer-controlled opponents.

They span different terrains and climates, so one minute you'll be trying to minimise skids around the ice-rink circuits, the next you'll be power sliding round gravel hairpins on a hill climb. Each of the tracks can be practiced on in a single-race mode and there is also multiplayer support. The car setup available is limited. You can adjust brake balance, gear ratios, tyres, steering and suspension, but only in the most basic sense--such as front, medium, back; or long, medium, short. The cars also handle very forgivingly and damage isn't accrued from one stage to the next, so there's no managing of repairs.

Rallisport Challenge looks gorgeous, is heaps of fun to play and has good longevity. If you are looking for a rally car simulation then this will leave you disappointed, but if you are after some high octane racing and fancy thrashing around in an Audi or Subaru, then pick up a copy now. --Jason Weston

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive 18 Nov 2002
By M. Dale
First a word of warning: This is not a game for you CMR and other rally sim fans. This is an arcade game.
I've not played the XBox version so I don't know how it stacks up against it, but the PC version is a very enjoyable and great looking game.
There are 4 race types ('standard' rally, ice raceing, hill climb, and rally cross) and various modes of play including the ability to race against other cars physically on the track in single player mode. Most rally 'sims' won't let you do this.
There is also good multiplayer support, though for net play you'd be struggling on a 56k modem.
Enjoyment wise, this is a great game just to take for a spin. It's easy to pick up and play, and conveys a great sense of speed.
Graphically, it's well polished. It has an amazing view distance, great weather and dust effects etc, and uses advanced features of the GeForce3 and above to make surfaces look very realistic, including water and ice. As well as that, it actually has 3D trees, something of a first on the PC.
The sonud is also up to scratch, wtih good car sounds and a good soundtrack.
You'll need a mid/high-end system to run this well, but if arcade rally is your thing, then this is worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rallisport Challenge in PC! 4 Feb 2003
Very good game. Graphics are very realistic: the places look really natural, the shadows are perfect, and the cars are just like real. There are many cars to choose and many places where you can race. The only problem in graphics is the aliasing... The control of the cars is good, but not the best it could be. The music and the sounds are really perfect, and you'll spend hours playing it!

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
i bought this a couple of days ago as i love rally driving games,the graphics are superb and the car control is brill but the only thing that lets this game down is there is no inside car view which most car racing players love the most as it makes the game more realistic,the game is still good though especialy now that the game is 9 years old,you still can't beat richard burns rally though.

This game is absolutely brilliant. Forget Dirt showdown... spend a couple of quid on this and have endless fun instead of wasting £60 (or whatever ridiculous price newly released games cost these days) on games that rely on nothing but the hype to be any good.

Rallisport challenge looks great, sounds great, and most importantly runs great. I should warn this is not meant to be a sim - it's an arcade game with an authentic rally feel - and believe me it IS authentic! Does a better job of making you feel like you are there on the track than any recent game I have ever played. The crunching sounds of the dirt, the smashing of windows and other parts on the car, grit flying up behind the tyres, dirt/snow tracks left behind by the car, the muffled pacenotes of the Co - driver that sounds like it's coming through a real mouthpiece rather than absolutely clear as if he is talking normally to you in a silent room (that's right Colin Mcrae rally) , the powerful engine sounds of the group B cars.... the list is endless. But the most important thing - the sense of SPEED that rally games just don't give you any more!

Buy it NOW you won't be dissapointed :)
