4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Arcade Racing, 4 Jan. 2008
This review is from: SEGA Rally (PS3) (Video Game)
If you're looking for an over-the-top rally racing game look no further than Sega Rally Revo. If you're looking for a hardcore rally experience this isn't the game for you, think of Sega Rally as the Ridge Racer of rally games.

There are a handful of offline options such as Championship, Time Trial and Free Run. Championship is the heart of the game where you compete for points in multiple sets of 3 or 4 races. The points you earn during the Championship allow you to unlock new championships, tracks and cars, all of which can be used in the other offline modes as well as online. You don't need to win every race to unlock items, you may only need to score a total of 240 points out of a possible 280 to unlock everything.

There are three main groups of cars in Sega Rally, Premier, Modified and Classic. Premier are your modern WRC rally cars, Modified are mostly cars from the smaller rally championships around the world and the Classics are the old Group B monsters from the 80's. You can unlock new liveries for the cars when you hit 20 miles and 50 miles driven in each particular car. This helps to spread out the use of each car although you'll probably find one or two models that you'll use over and over.

Track selection is a little light, there are five enviroments, Tropical, Safari, Canyon, Alpine and Artic, another is unlocked later in the game. Each enviroment features three tracks all of which can be unlocked to be raced in reverse. One good thing is that none of the tracks are bad tracks, in fact I'd say that for the most part they're all exceptionally well laid out. Geo-Deformation allows for deep ruts to be carved into the track while racing. These ruts can really pull your car around and play into racing strategy.

Online options are plentiful and fun and lag is non-existant. Full online Championships can be created and raced among friends. Nothing groundbreaking here but it works well and adds to the replay value.

Graphically the game looks very nice with not much more than a hint of aliasing and the framerate seems a steady 30fps at all times. There are some nice effects such as cars getting muddy and then having the mud washed off by a large puddle. The enviroments are nice to look at and offer a lot of variety between each. Watching the Aurora Borealis while racing the Artic is quite an experience.

Overall, Sega Rally Revo is a fun rally game that manages to take you back to the days of dropping quids into an arcade machine. I'd recommend the game to anyone looking for a simple, fun rally experience.
