Sega Rally PS3 - One of the finest racers in years!
17 July 2010
Excerpt: "The Sega Rally series has long been providing petrol heads and casual gamers alike with quality titles usually found on Segas own systems. Since Sega quit the hardware market and began producing games across multi platforms previous series which have long been neglected were revived and thankfully the Sega Rally series has been one of those and that’s good news for us all! The latest game which appears on PS3 and XBOX 360 keeps the traditions of ...
Excerpt: "...SEGA’s racing legends Outrun and SEGA Rally have never quite managed to repeat their arcade counterparts’ heroics on home consoles. 2008 saw a somewhat surprising HD rebirth for the latter, though the end result is once again something of a disappointment. It’s a case of style over substance; visually vibrant, with overly simple gameplay. Granted, arcade racers are meant to have an immediacy to their style, but SEGA Rally just doesn’t have enough ...
Pros: Sound handling, strong visuals, great cars, arcade accessibility
Cons: Shallow, lack of excitement, rubbish external view
Excerpt: Sega has dis-continued the sega rally series after this, and it left on a high. Personally i loved this game, solid gameplay straight from the old school of sega rally 2, good looking graphics, and plenty there to test your skill, online multiplayer is a little shy at times, but otherwise, grab a few mates and rally away.
Excerpt: Arcade racer,which can be fast and furious online and runs at a decent framerate, but seems to lock up frequently Voice didnt seem to work online either The tracks are very generic,the graphics are average, and where is the damage model???? We are supposed to be playing a next gen game. Come on Sega, how I long for the good old days.
Conclusion: To enjoy this game u have to understand that the sega rally series is a classic arcade game and that the physics etc aren't supposed to be overally realistic although they are quite good. If ur looking for a racing game with realistic physics and high quality graphics then u may not like this game although the graphics aren't bad. It's a great classic game just with a few additional features.
Conclusion: I bought it because it's Â£11.99. Played it for half an hour and got bored. You see the problem is, even though it is arcade and I was not hoping for extreme realism, it is incredibly difficult to win a race, even at the very beginning. Other games introduce you to fast driving gradually. E.g. Ridge Racer gets more and more difficult as you get along.
Conclusion: I have been a wii owner for 2 years now, and decided to buy a PS3 for the next gen graphics... well, if this is what the ps3 nextgen looks like... i'll sell it off again soon lol... bad graphics and an even worse game... carhandling is crap!
A Must Buy Bargain So Long As........................

Conclusion: You enjoyed the original Sega Rally arcade machine, this is pure arcade game in much the same way Virtua Tennis 3 is nothing like real tennis this is nothing like real driving, do not make the mistake of thinking you are going to get a true to life rally game or you will feel like you have lost a tenner and found a quid.
