  • Summary: Xpand Rally is a breathtaking game that gives you the true to life experience of driving powerful rally cars amidst photorealistic sceneries. Realistic weather effects, rolling hills, and animated scenery all add to game's visual perfection. Xpand Rally also features highly detailed models of modern rally cars and handling physics developed with the help of rally sport professionals which further enhance the realism of driving experience. Xpand Rally combines the best elements of Rally and Rally Cross racing in one unique gaming experience. The game offers a career mode based on time trials during both: individual races and World Championship Series which will satisfy traditional Rally fans. The Rally Cross fans won't be disappointed either - they can challenge several opponents in head to head racing during competitions based on real and fictitious race events. Xpand Rally, as the only title on the market, brings the economy factor into a rally game. The player starts with a junk car and competes in races to earn money and acquire upgrades, repair damage, tweak performance and pay the race entry fees. [Techland] Expand

  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.
  3. For twenty bucks this is a pretty great game, especially if you’re big into rally racing.
  4. 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?!?!?
  5. 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.

    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.
  7. Its resplendent scenery, changeable weather, and exquisite lighting and particle effects are absolutely mesmerizing. [Holiday 2004, p.104]

    Xpand Rally is rally racing at it's finest. The action is fast and smooth, and the engine is marvelous! Much better than Colin Mcrae's. Good fun, and great racing, an excellent change of pace from FPS, RTS, and other game styles. Expand

    I'm not normally a person who likes racing games, they tend to be a bit samey but I was wrong, very wrong. The modelling is fantastic and the graphics really are something to see for yourself. Its a game that virtually everyone in the house will enjoy, even if it's just to crash down the mountain side. Expand

    Excellent rally sim! Couldn't be better value for money! Everything about this game is incredibly well implimented, from the well structured career mode to the top class replay. Amazing visuals and handling. Thumbs up! Everyone should own this. If your not sure there is a decent demo floating about that some of these ppl should've tried first. Shame on you for the low ratings! Expand

    This game is a stellar rally racing game developed by Techland. If you want a game that has superb graphics, realistic physics and a great level of detail this is it. The only reason why this game doesn't get a 10 is because they couldnt license the cars, which means you will be driving a Sunami instead of a Subaru - of course, modelled after the real thing.

    Sucks. Screen is washed out bright white, can't see anything but the grass. NO SUPPORT. Don't buy this game.
