  1. A few blemishes aside, there are just too many fun race modes to participate in.

    It's the same excellent-looking title that we saw on PS2 last month, featuring even better texturing and fewer jaggies on the Xbox. [Jan 2003, p.114]

    The floaty feel of your car, along with the wacky physics keep the game from being any deeper than a petri dish, but it can enjoyed in brief spurts.
  4. It’s actually one of the more enjoyable arcade racers available on Xbox. It looks good, plays well and is stacked with options.
  5. Cheat Code Central
    75
    It's certainly an interesting take and one that hasn't been featured in very many video games.
  6. The thing that really grabs the gamer’s attention is the look of the tracks in Rally Fusion. They are simply a joy to look at and I found myself racing around and around just to see what pops up next.
  7. Official Xbox Magazine

    It's tasty and filling, but hardly haute cuisine. [Feb 2003, p.75]
  8. The game has scope. And so another question pops into your mind: What exactly has been sacrificed to accommodate this? The answer: A young girl, a goat and, unfortunately for Xbox owners, some technical proficiency.

    A deep, gorgeous, somewhat alternative view of the Rally genre, Climax Motorsports' Rally Fusion has a lot going for it. [Jan 2003, p.78]
  10. Its wide selection of options is often plagued by repetition, and is confusing to navigate because of a poor interface.
  11. RF’s biggest speed bump on its way past Mediocrity Street is the hard-to-figure-out license and Race of Champions mode.
  12. 68
    One thing that is sorely lacking in Rally Fusion is an onscreen map.
  13. Xbox Nation Magazine

    As an arcade racer set in the rally universe, this ain't half bad. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.87]
  14. I had a hard time pulling myself away from the RoC mode, even though my instincts were telling me I was tired of playing it. It has that kind of affect on you, even though it's only a slightly above average race engine.
  15. It just got boring after a while. This game has some strong points, but it’s missing some essential depth in certain areas.
  16. 40
    While being well-coded, it just doesn't offer the excitement which should come with the Race of Champions.
