  • Summary: RalliSport Challenge delivers an action-packed racing experience by combining four different types of Rally competition into one pulse-pounding game: Hill Climb, traditional Rally, RallyCross, and Ice Racing. This variety of race types allows for gamers to experience traditional rally racing against the clock, as well as fierce, wheel-to-wheel grudge matches against computer opponents or over a network against friends. With 29 licensed cars (and several ?bonus? vehicles), 48 tracks, realistic AI opponents, and spectacular crashes with realistic car damage, RalliSport Challenge packs more fun and thrills into every race across a variety of terrain.

    The physics provide a near-perfect blend of arcade and simulation sensibilities: It's not so over-the-top that it's still believable, but it's also not so realistic that you'll need an intimate level of knowledge about tires, engines, and gear boxes.
  2. Rallisport Challenge for the PC even has a few key bonuses that weren't in the Xbox version, including noticeably sharper graphics and the ability to play online.
  3. Beautiful visuals are accompanied by an amazingly atmospheric soundtrack, which perfectly blends with the furious style of rally racing.

    While it is disappointing to see yet another rally game ignore most elements that makes rally racing great, the shallow, but exciting, racing is sure to deliver enough thrills for any driver.
  5. It's graphically excellent, varied and, above all, the racing is exciting.
  6. Although succeeding as a purely arcade racer, those looking for a realistic simulation of the sport should look elsewhere.
  7. Nice graphics and a good physics model can't hide the inflexible playability of a game that could have been a real treat to play. [Mar 2003, p.107]

    I find this rally game at the top of the line when it comes to multiplayer. It is a great andrenaline kick to race down the narrow roads agains some friends. Graphics are the best I've seen in this type of games. Expand

    Well rounded rally game. To bad it couldn't keep the sharpness of the xbox version.

    had i been able to solve stuttering frame rate issue i probably would have enjoyed this game, instead it simply frustrated and anoyed me.

    Simulation fans...go elsewhere, this is an acrcade type game with simulation type graphics and glaze. As far as ascade type racers go this is great, but I was under hte assumption this was a sim due to all the hype about its physics model and such.......My wheel is worse than a gamepad in this game...nuff said. There are a few other things i'd love to rip apart, which are obvious leftovers from the xbox version, but since those are ranted about on other reviews elsewhere I'll let those be. My ratings: As a Sim: 3....if a wheel works worse than a gamepad...somethings wrong.. As an arcade/console racer : 9 Nicest arcade style game since ridge racer type 4......as long as you stick to that gamepad... Expand
