    The rally racing itself, which is really what it's all about, is good, deep fun.
  2. The fairly simplistic gameplay mechanics may not appeal to rallying purists, but anyone looking for an accessible, if somewhat unorthodox, racing title will find much to enjoy here.
  3. A solid, yet simple rally game that works for what it tries to do. Its lack of vehicle customization restrict its appeal, and hinders its chance against heavy hitters like Colin Mcrae 3 and even GT3’s rally mode.
  4. All the basics are in place, competently attended to, and the visual presence is extremely strong – little details, like an amazing waterfall and dense environment effects, continually impress. [June 2002, p.55]
  5. Mostly a scenic buzz through Africa and little else. [July 2002, p.120]
  6. 60
    Although each car handles differently, the off-road speedsters are extremely loose, which makes for perfecting turns a frustrating task.
  7. It is without a shadow of a doubt the perfect example of the most mediocre racing game I've ever seen. [July 2002, p.100]
