    Rush Rally Origins demands a place in your Switch starting line-up. It’s second only to its Rush Rally counterpart, and is far and away the best racing game to release on the Switch in the last couple of years.

    With an excellent behind-the-car racer in Rush Rally 3 and now a superb overhead entry, it’s hard to imagine what more this developer can do in the rally racing category, especially at such an incredibly competitive price point.

    All in all, Rush Rally Origins is a great little rally game if you keep your expectations of the graphics in check. From a gameplay perspective, it’s more than capable, and offers improvements over the original game in spades. Despite the easy vehicle handling, the game is nevertheless challenging with smart AI and strict time trial targets (which we’re told will be slightly altered in a patch, along with various other tweaks to visuals and performance), and is perfect if you’re after a fun, easygoing arcade driving experience.

    A little stale outside of racing mode, and the game is hardest at the beginning because the three cars given to you are bad. Still, Rush Rally Origins is a solid racing game with above-average graphics.

It's top down, but the car mechanics are on par with the best of them. Budget price. Top shelf gameplay. My favorite racer on the switch right now. Expand

The online leaderboards for time trials will keep me occupied for many hours. For sure, the best rally game on Switch. Expand

The graphics and sound are nice and the cars handle very realistically on the different surfaces. The core gameplay is very good, which is why I have given this game an 8/10, however, there are a few things holding Rush Rally Origins back.
    1. The AI of the opponent's drivers and times to beat (in rally mode) seems a bit off at times.
    2. There are only six countries to race in which gets a bit 'samey' after a while.
    3. There isn't much reward for progressing. I know this 3rd point sounds a bit cheap, but it will probably be the thing that stops me from playing this game after only 5 or 6 hours. This game is lots of fun to play, but it really lacks regular (and rewarding) progress goals to keep pushing you through. Despite these drawbacks, this is easily one of the best top down racers I have played (along with Mini Motor Racing X). It is good value for money and you will enjoy your time playing.

    There's surprisingly great depth to gameplay, once you start scratching the surface and upgrade your cars.
    This is a welcome intermission, dare we expect rush rally 4,it's amazing to see how far the developer(one guy) has pushed rush rally 3 since launch.
    I'm sure he'll offer his continued support to this latest iteration.
