This is a better driving game than those which have come before it on the GBA, and if only it wasn't called Sega Rally, it would appeal to a lot more gamers. As it is, the lofty expectations placed on it by the world's nostalgic memories of its predecessors will lead most to dismiss this as an impossible dream on an underpowered system. In reality, it's an entertaining little racer that, despite one or two flaws and glitches, isn't far off the best racing action you can have on the bus on your way to work.
V-Rally reste roi mais si vous l'avez bouclé dans tous les sens, le titre de Sega peut constituer une bonne alternative dans un style plus arcade. Il est seulement regrettable que les faiblesses du moteur 3D puissent entraver, de temps à autres, le gameplay pourtant plaisant.
As far as racing engines go, this one can't compete with the likes of Colin McRae 2.0, GT Advance 2: Rally Racing or even V-Rally 3 on the Game Boy Advance. But even though the main racing is lacking, the development team made the package palatable by including a ton of extras, including Internet ranking, collectable mini-games, tracks, vehicles, and historical Sega Rally images. So, while there are plenty of better looking and handling racing titles on the GBA, at least Sega Rally makes up for its design shortcomings in mass amounts of features.
Als ich das erste Mal eine Proberunde fuhr, war ich ehrlich gesagt über die Grafik mehr als überrascht. Prescht man etwas schneller durch die Gegend, fliegen einem die megagroßen Pixel nur so um die Ohren. Von Sega sind wir doch eigentlich Besseres gewohnt!
Sega Rally is obviously well put together in terms of the number of challenges it offers you, and it does play rather like its Saturn predecessor when you throw it into first-person mode - with every bump, gyration and wheelspin accentuated aurally and visually - but we were rather taken aback by how easy it is. We're not quite sure what we were doing wrong (or especially right), but despite bouncing off walls regularly (which is an occupational hazard if you can't pick the road out from the scenery), we quickly unlocked most of the tracks and cars, and polished off the various championships. Indeed, we breezed through most of them first time round, but unlike V-Rally 3, which was also very easy for the most part, we didn't enjoy it too much. V-Rally 3 may have glitches and the same Outrun-style engine mechanics, but it's more fun than Sega Rally, and that's a shame, because otherwise this has all the trappings of an excellent rally game.

Don't judge this book by its cover. The Sega Rally name is respected, but I can't say that I feel the same about this particular title.
