Summary: Arcade games are not that popular nowadays. Not that I intended buying one, I simply didn't realise that this was one. Oh well. Just as well it is pretty good. Graphically excellent with only the sound effects to tingle your ears, your slip and slide around a variety of circuits. The champonship structure is grouped into levels of grouped rallies. Rallies are 6 car races, not the WRC style timed events. You get points and these uunlock further rallies.
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.
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: This is a really great game for some frantic arcade action. Yes the cars don't damage but does anyone really care when the racing action is this hectic. Plus it's an ARCADE game not a simulation!
Conclusion: When I was younger I loved to play this game on the Saturn so I couldn't wait to play this. It was one of those games that I have been meaning to get since the day of release but never got around to it. Finally, I have managed to grab a copy for next to nothing and I must say that I am gutted I didn't get this earlier.
Excerpt: Sega Rally simply oozes arcade brilliance, which means bright beautiful graphics, fast paced adrenaline fuelled action and in the case of the Sega Rally series, the concept of sliding around corners which can be as frustrating as it is rewarding. On the easiest difficulty setting, the game packs a serious punch and should offer a challenge which will last quite some time.
A great game to play that is like the SEGA Rally arcade games.

Excerpt: I got SEGA Rally for free after buying it with my GAME Reward Points and I have to say it was a good decision. The game is very easy to play and very casual. The controls are very easy and the game is just like the SEGA Rally arcade games from years ago. However, the game also has various problems. The graphics are very good and the soundtrack is good to listen to when racing round the tracks. The framerate is perfect and the game runs very smoothly.
