Images of Sega Rally

Another big day for the racing game Sega Rally which throws at us some screenshots immortalized in the snow, the mud, the sand and on the asphalt. I really like the air fighters, creating an aerial flag of France!

PSP version pawns all overs :P Actually I'm quite impressed with all the screen shots... But what's the verdict on this game? I haven't researched it much at all. I'm inquiring about the 360 version.

I played the demo on Live and enjoyed it a lot. With the MS wheel it feels like a true arcade rally game, and it is a jaggyless, colorful, and smooth experience. These screenshots look washed out as opposed to the real deal.

Mucho FUN!... powersliding around turns feels so good!

I liked the demo, was a lot of fun.

Not really my kind of game, I found the game looking rather weak, the ground deformation was cool but the rest of the game looked a bit weak.
I wasn't much of a fan of rally games to begin with and this title didn't change that unfortunately.

hi guys,

I didn't like the game at all. So don't read any further if you're going to buy the game. I don't want to influence anybodys decision about buying the game or not.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

so this is just my opinion:
i found the demo rather lame. the innovative and good looking ground deformation doesn't have a real influence on the handling of the car.

the chocolate-mud sticks to your car, but only to the side of it. there's actually no chance to get any mud on top of the car!?

and there's the feeling that you're driving on rails all the time... so you don't even have to break a single time and still win a race.
there's also no real physics, nor is there any damage model...

why would you buy the game then - because you love arcade games. the graphics look very 'arcade' and it plays even more arcade.

for me it would be good as an xbox live arcade download. but i would never pay 60$ for this.

i'll wait for the next DiRT with *hopefully* real online-play. and i prefer playing Motorstorm over the new SegaRally, where at least you have to break from time to time not to fall into a canyon.

best regards,
ScarJack

umm what? it has a BIG influence in feel and handling, and also the lap times

Thing of taste ScarJack ^^
I love the game, though I haven't played the demo. perhaps it would change my mind on this game... nargh, don't think so. Sega did a good job on SR. Now waiting till release.

Welcome to sega rally championship. This game has to recaputre the throne from all the pretenders, the first game's conversion on te saturn is still amazing, if rather blocky.

THough the next pgr may well off road riding...so prob leave both leave pgr4 and this alone unless the review are amazing. Can bide my time with all the other amazing stuff overloading the release schedule if need be though.

I COULD NEVER DISAGREE MORE WITH YOU.
ground deformation makes a huge difference on next lap,graphics are great,mud looks great,
driving on rails - i didnt notice that myself.

and its meant to look like a arcade racer and its meant to play even more like an arcade racer,when i was 12/13 yrs old i played this every weekend in my local arcade,sega rally 2 when i was 15/16 was awesome and this feels exactly the same,it aint here to compete with motorstorm/dirt or any other racing game in the world.
FFS MAN ITS SEGA RALLY

GAME OVER YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i agree with being able to go round the track without breaking
its pretty daft...
my accelerate finger really hurt after playing!

This had achance of beating out Dirt (cars dont turn on a central pivot point).
It handles better. But not being able to stray from the road really hurts.

Microsoft or EA needs to get Dice to do another Rallisport. Rallisport Challenge 2 is one of the best racing games I have ever played.

that's what i meant when i wrote that the game feels for me like "driving on rails".

i didn't want to offend anyone. and it's good if you disagree with what i wrote. that's what this discussion boards are for - to hear/share different opinions.

sure, you don't have to compare SEGA Rally with other rally games - but it's not forbidden - and such open discussions and different opinions from you guys often help me to decide whether to buy a game or not.

i might even consider to buy SEGA Rally - not due to its singleplayer part, but if it gets excellent reviews for its multiplayer part.

best regards!
