    It might not have all the detail a gearhead expects, but that doesn’t mean it’s superficial. The cars might look like toys, but the driving model is no joke. It might not have a first-person view, or upgradable cars, or a career mode RPG, or demanding graphics, or product placement, or a shouting co-driver, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less of a rally racing game. Instead, it’s an adoring and adorable idyll about taking a relaxing drive through a lovely countryside, and doing it as fast as you can.

    A natural evolution of Absolute Drift, art of rally is a terrific passion project that serves as the perfect love letter to rally driving. Designed to be accessible to anyone, regardless of skill level, and with a huge amount of content, it’s a game that you could easily be playing a year from now and still finding new ways to approach it. As such, it’s an incredible value proposition and one of the best racing games in recent memory.

    Art of Rally is a racing game for those who want something different. The more playful nature is a nice contrast to the title's simulation-style handling and physics. There are plenty of cars, liveries, and tracks to unlock, and the online play keeps things fresh thanks to the system of weekly and daily challenges. Unless you only want serious racing games, genre fans will love Art of Rally.

    Reconnecting with feelings that have gone out of fashion, Art of Rally is a welcome entertainment at a time games are more and more complex and dense. Just like kart racing, it offers quick handling and good sensations. Without second thoughts, we drive and we learn to adapt to the different cars it offers. In addition, it is perfect for small PC configurations.

    A minimalist rally game that deceives with its visuals. It looks like an arcade, but it's a solid simulation with a visual that you'll either fall in love with for the first time or have to get used to it. [Issue#309]

    Art of Rally is an opposite of a hardcore rally sim; it requires very little effort and revels in its meditative approach. Drive, listen to pleasant electronic tunes, enjoy the scenery. But I wish there was something more besides career mode, because when it’s over 20 hours later, you’re done.

    The charm of Art of Rally is in its free roam mode, especially after unlocking all of the vehicles and tracks. Zooming around the game’s colorful, beautifully designed environments with the easy tunes of the soundtrack is a surprisingly great way for me to zone out after a stressful day. If the controls, especially for a hand-held controller, can be tightened up even just a little bit, Art of Rally could become a title that I play every day - whether it be during a warm-up session before a night of gaming, or as a way to close out a long day.

    This game is totally OK arcade top-down rally game until it tries to be different from other rally games.
    - While driving you will hear
    This game is totally OK arcade top-down rally game until it tries to be different from other rally games.
    - While driving you will hear retrowave music, pretty decent. But not directions where to go, what to expect. There are no map either.
    - If you go like 3 meters from road, you will be instantly penalized by restoring vehicle on the road at zero spead and -plus 5 seconds to your time. I.e., was driving in mist, high spead, bumpy, road took curve and I landed away from it
    Speed was ok, steering responsive, any other rally game would let me get back in the "game , but not this one.
    - "People" on the road. Watchers are represented as moving tall rectangular blocks, like in Minecraft. And they do stay right on the road. You can't hit them, they run away and scatter, but every time, I am "driving a car", and "see people" on the road, just can't help myself, I hit the brakes.

    This game didn't really keep my interest. Feels way overrated than it should be.
