    V-Rally 4 is a deep and challenging experience. There’s an undeniable issue with the game’s somewhat overly loose controls, but with that to the side, this is every bit as engaging as V-Rally has always been. Everything from the game’s stunning visual and audio presentation to its dynamic systems and its content diversity, has been developed meticulously to produce one hell of a tense second-by-second racer.

    The tracks are expertly designed to ensure you're always on your toes and always challenged when driving any track, and those tracks themselves are absolutely beautiful and a refreshing experience after years of the same locations from the FIA rally championship tour. There are sore spots, namely the lackluster career mode and an issue with pace notes, but overall this is an unrivaled experience in the rally genre. V-Rally 4 is a game worth experiencing and Kylotonn Games should be on every racing fan's radar after this release.

    V-Rally 4 offers wonderful design tracks and delivers some intense races. Unfortunately there is a limited amount of modes and the campaign isn't worth your time.

    V-Rally 4 transforms the franchise experience into something globally pleasant, gameplaywise, but is way too light on content and environnements. Plus, the AI is catastrophic.

    V-Rally 4 is an ambitious and diverse game, but it is ruined with a control that there is nowhere to catch it and a gameplay that deflates every hour we play it.

    Weak and a transparent attempt to cash-grab on a forgotten brand. Do not let the nostalgia get to you, basically anything else is a better choice. [Issue#289]

    V-Rally 4 wanted to be a different proposal from the existing rally games, but the return of this arcade franchise is not what many expected. Taking ideas from other games, it has combined them to create a diverse game that can be defined in a single word - irregular. The main mode is a constant challenge, but it's not deep enough, the graphics pretend to be beautiful, but they're not and the driving feel is neither arcade nor simulation. V-Rally 4 is a game that doesn't know where it wants to be and it's something that everyone will notice.

    The presentation side of the game is simply stunning and it was a pleasure to experience both what the visuals and sound design had to offer.The presentation side of the game is simply stunning and it was a pleasure to experience both what the visuals and sound design had to offer. There is a decent amount of content for you to get to grips with and the variety of the content has will keep you coming back for more time and time again.
    There’s plenty of unique locations to visit and racing on the different tracks is not only fun but it’s very engaging as well. I was very impressed with the online components of the game because I didn’t come across any issues and it was very easy to find a race. The damage you can get while driving is very realistic and without a doubt this adds another nice layer when it comes to the challenge the game gives you. Steering your car can be a little bit of a problem at times because sometimes it doesn’t feel as tight as it should. The sound design is absolutely fantastic the music in the game gets on your nerves pretty quickly. Does V-Rally 4 do enough to get a recommendation from me? I’ve played all of the V-Rally games and I must admit that I’m quite a big fan of the series. As you can imagine then I was really looking forward to V-Rally 4 because its been a very very long time since I’ve had the pleasure of playing the V-Rally series. Thankfully V-Rally 4 reaches my lofty expectations and then some and I must admit that I didn’t think it would be as good as it is. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the best looking racing game’s I’ve ever played and when you combine that with the fun and challenging gameplay you end up having a really enjoyable time with the game. There’s plenty of content for you to have these enjoyable moments with as well and the many diverse tracks you get to race on keeps things fresh and interesting and it also makes you forget about the little issues it has. Thankfully these issues aren’t serious though and when it’s all said and done I can’t recommend V-Rally 4 enough because in terms of rally game’s it’s definitely going to give the DiRT game’s a run for their money.
