Description

Xpand Rally puts you behind the wheel of a tuned-up WRC machine in over seventy races in five sceneries, using a modified version of the Chrome engine with fully movable obstacles, dynamic day time and weather changes, full collisions simulation and a complex car damage system. The driver can even sustain leg injuries and concussions. There is much more freedom than in other rally games. In the freestyle mode, for example, there are no invisible borders, you can compete off-road with no restrictions to tracks.

Aside from the traditional race, you can build-up a rally career, similar to NFSU, where you work your way up as a rookie. You need to spend your money wisely to take care off repairs and tune your car with over 800 parts. Xpand Rally does not have an official rally license, but includes 35 sports cars over 8 divisions, with some funky models such as tiny coopers or terrain vehicles. There are two driving modes: arcade and simulation with different damage systems and steering models.

ChromEd, a full game editor loaded with tutorial and templates, has been attached to the game. You can edit existing tracks or create new ones and even import your own car designs straight from 3D Studio MAX.

Xpand Rally Windows Another plus towards realism is the detailed damage modeling! You're really going to feel sorry about your car.
Xpand Rally Windows Realism is another big asset of the game, and one major plus is that you have interaction with the environment, in this case breaking the side poles realistically :)
