Pro Rally 2001 is a rally racing simulation game. It comes with 24 races spread over 12 different countries such as France, Sweden and Kenya. Settings include tarmac, gravel and dirt roads, deserts, snow and ice. Game modes consist of Time Trial, Arcade and Championship. Races driven in Time Trial will be saved as ghost cars for you to race against. In Arcade and Championship mode you have to finish each course with acceptable times before you can race the next. In Championship mode you will also have to successfully complete a driving competence test before you can start. You only get one chance for each course in Championship mode and your car can also get damaged. After each race there's only limited time for repairs, which forces you to make concessions. Multiplayer is possible in split-screen, network and online multiplayer modes.
