Great graphics, poor handling, savage difficulty levels...
, 4 Oct. 2007
This review is from: SEGA Rally (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I love racing games so eagerly splashed out £34 for this one. I read the reviews on the internet, again, eagerly waiting to see the way the track floor was `updated' by the effect of the cars driving over it. My machine is high enough spec to handle this game well so I loaded it up. Yes, it looks beautiful. The music is ok, although not a patch on Outrun 2006. The scenery moves: elephants walk by in Africa, geysers spout in the mountains etc. So far so good. Where the game not only falls down by, in my opinion crashes and burns is on the handling and sense of `rubber meeting the road'. The cars slip and slide around, in fact, they FLOAT like those really old games where a plastic car was on a rod in front of the screen and only the images on the screen moved. It's AWFUL. I was shocked by the almost complete lack of feeling that you are on the road. Colin Mcrae's Dirt is superior in almost every way - graphics, handling and gritty `get out my way' car bashing. The difficulty level even on the easy levels is high although I like a challenge. Sorry SEGA, this one I should have waited for the bargain bin because it reminds me of an Acorn Electron game from the mid-80's!
Best racers on the market?
Colin Mcrae's Dirt
Flatout 2 - yes, old but GREAT fun, GREAT graphics, and brilliant gritty handling.
