Don't understand all the fuss

Neil A. Smith "neiltbag", Amazon
29 December 2003
  • Summary: Let me start by listing rally games that are better: CMR1, CMR2 and WRC. The gameplay just doesn't match up to those three games. Let me let Codemasters in on a little secret. We don't WANT 100% accurate physics in a video game. That kind of accuracy demands a level of immersion and control that is only possible by doing the real thing.

Disapointing game, despite the name

Mr. Ice, Amazon
28 October 2003
  • Summary: This game is highly billed for it's obvious shortfalls: (1) poor graphics: I've seen better graphics from PSX games, there seems to be no difference between regular RCA output and the SVHS output; the polygons are huge and the color seems flat (2) poor gameplay: while the driving simulation may be accurate in terms of the physics of driving, the gameplay is inadequate. The driving is extremlely twitchy and just plain not fun. There are too few cars and tracks to drive.

A realistic rally simulation

Alan Chan, Amazon
7 June 2003
  • Summary: This game is very realistic when it comes to car physics, a feature which any real rally fans crave for, and a feature which World Rally Championship and V-Rally 3 sorely lacks. Graphics is good, but not great. It lacks a bit in game modes also. But the sense of speed and exhiliration is excellent. Those who gave this game a low mark definitely have their priority mixed up.

Realism ... arcade style

Mr. W. Hardy "GH", Amazon
20 May 2003
  • Summary: I'd only just jumped into the world of the PS2 in October 2002, after years of PC games and a few things on the PS1. This was one of the games I got with the console. The first thing I noticed was the graphics, which are just about as good as you're gonna get for a game like this. I hoped that with the look of the game being so good, that the gameplay didn't suffer. It doesn't. I admit that it took a few practice sessions to get the feel of the game.

[]DON'T Buy !!!

UB57, Amazon
13 May 2003
  • Summary: Wow after all the hype & release delays is this game ever a DISAPPOINTMENT!!! The physics engine is pure junk. Set the feedback to "Maximum" for my Logitech Wheel & can barely feel anything. Have no idea how bad it must be on "Minimum." Quite a shame as the graphics are very good, especially some of the backrounds, but all the cars sound like mad bumble bees instead of race cars...

Simply Amazing!

David, Amazon
7 May 2003
  • Summary: I was a little dissapointed that the Subaru WRC wasn't available in the championship mode but when you start winning races with the Ford Focus you unlock the numerous stages in the game which are quite unique and fun to drive with any car you want including the Subaru WRC.

Not satisfied

  • Summary: It wasn't as it described and the picture on the screen was small. Maybe it's an old game I don't know.

Almost

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 April 2002
  • Summary: I love WRC. That being said it's hard not to compare the 2. THis game almost hits the mark. Damage is good and the stages are very well done, but the car is a bit difficult to drive and I can't understand what Nicky Grist is mumbling. The game was bought used but I honestly don't think anyone ever played it (game, case, and inserts all like new!) I'm going to give it some more time but I'll be looking for other Rally games to get my fix.

This game is nothing like Need for Speed games its real racing

Cris "C Thrilla", Amazon
13 April 2002
  • Summary: I read a Review on this game and someone wrote they didn't like it they're crazy! Here are some reasons to get it. 1 The guy not liking this game didn't like it because it's too real. This game was made for people who drive real cars not kids. It's not a game where you Mash the gas and steer and go 300 mph with unlimited NOS!! In real life you gas, brake, feather the throttle handbrake corners, use the weight of the car etc etc.. This game has it all!
