  • Excerpt: "Rally fans start your engines as this is a very respectable racing game indeed that deserves a good seven out of ten or four stars in Ciao world from me. The key to this game can be found in investing a little time getting to know how the car handles and as far as racing simulations go it claims to include many of the tactics used by real rally car racers and you will need to master these if you are to advance in the game.

Remember Richard Burns

Duncan McDonald "Dunk", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Sadly, Richard Burns is no longer with us. A great WRC champion, his legacy lives on through this very realistic rally sim. The graphics are pretty good but the colour seems a bit washed out. Sound effects are good enough. It is the style of play that sets this game apart from the rest. This game is a sim. In other words, tough. The cars are heavy, turning is slow and sluggish, over and understeer affect handling and breaking distances are long, especially at speed.

Most realistic console rally game

Simon Brown, amazon.co.uk
13 March 2007
  • Summary: Just a quick review to add a few points. This is by far the most realisic rally game ever made (that comment would also apply to the PC and PS2 versions). It's not for casual gamers though, it's very hard especially on a gamepad, but it's even hard on the PC on my wheel/pedals. I would get an xbox wheel for this if I were you (assuming it supports them). The hard bit isn't getting times, merely staying out of the trees is hard.

Way to go Burnsie!

  • Summary: Sadly Richard Burns has been absent from this years WRC Championship due to serious illness, so it is at least something that we see him return to our TV screens by way of his first video game. Firstly let me say that anyone who enjoys arcade experience driving games, stop reading now! Richard Burns Rally sets out to achieve exactly what it says on the tin. Of all rally titles on both Xbox and PS2 this really does try to capture the realism of real rally driving.
