  1. This is a great game, be you avid rally fan or a novice to the sport, this game offers something fun for all takers. If you have a PC that can handle the game and you like racing games in the least I would have to recommend you take a look at this title.
  2. Xpand Rally shows off a love for the sport that borders on obsessive, yet the game is truly accessible to any motor sports fan.

    Although its budget pricing suggests otherwise, the game is impressively appointed and wonderfully rendered. The physics modeling is superb, and the damage modeling is nothing short of stunning.
  4. The visuals are absolutely breathtaking, whether it is the incredible lighting effects, lush environments, or the fine details that are often overlooked by other games, XR delivers.
  5. For twenty bucks this is a pretty great game, especially if you’re big into rally racing.
  6. Replays are stunning with all the cameras and visual effects and the game comes with a built-in track editor which lets you import, modify and create tracks. What more do you want?!?!?
  7. Its resplendent scenery, changeable weather, and exquisite lighting and particle effects are absolutely mesmerizing. [Holiday 2004, p.104]

    This game is fantastic value. Better than games that cost several times more. I run it on vista 64 bit OS with g33 integrated graphics and it plays smooth as silk. I will get a graphics card one day and then it will run with full eye candy, but the graphics are impressive even without one. Full Review »

    Great effects and realism. Once you get to the AWD vehicles it gets a lot more fun
