Digital Spy (Sep 28, 2007)
Sega Rally is also a visual feast, with superb-looking tracks and cars. What’s more, nuances such as flying mud and snow stick to the car and – better still – drive through a water-filled hole and you get to see it wipe away some of the dirt as the car splashes the water over its body. Despite a high initial learning curve, Sega Racing Studios have created what is undoubtedly one of the best PS3 driving games on the market. It beats MotorStorm hands down and, with unprecedented refinement and attention to detail, you’ll be playing this for months to come.

Polished to such a high degree, Sega Rally Revois hard to resist. It is a wonderful mix of off-road rally and arcade drift make is entertaining and challenging. While the reliance on power sliding takes a bit of time to get used to, once mastered it lends to a dashing racing experience. Well-tuned competitive intelligence keeps you on your toes, as does the constantly changing terrain. Sega Rally Revois as exciting as rally gets and to pass this gem up is to miss out on one of the best racers this year.
The Next Level (USA) (Oct 31, 2007)
Even with its lack of car tweaking, painting, and/or upgrading features that are by now de rigeur in modern racing games, Sega Rally Revo remains a rollicking good time, sticking firmly to its arcade-style roots. Frankly, that's the best design choice that could've been made. After all, there are plenty of options already out there for hardcore gearheads to satiate their virtual garage joneses. Sometimes, you just want to race in beautiful mud, snow, rain, and sand. If you're an old-school Sega Rally fan or just a PS3 owner looking for a racer you can sink your teeth into, Revo has your name written all over it.

Very rarely does a developer remake an iconic classic as well as Sega Racing Studio has Sega Rally. With the finest eye for detail, they've managed to remember everything that made the series great and translate it onto today's next gen machines perfectly. Not only that, but they've put their own unique stamp on the Sega Rally family with great aplomb.

nd trotzdem begeistert das Debüt der Sega Racing Studios: Vor allem das geniale Fahrgefühl, der umfangreiche Fuhrpark und die deformierbaren, wenn auch wenigen Strecken im motivierenden Karrieremodus ebnen Sega Rally den Weg zum Hit! Hier erwartet euch einer der besten Arcaderacer, den ihr für die aktuellen Konsolen und den PC bekommen könnt!
Game Freaks 365 (2007)
It has been a while since Sega released a game in their Rally franchise. Sega Rally Revo is a fine display in what next-generation racing games should look like. From the deformed tracks to the refined graphics, this is a major improvement from the past. That said, the single-player could use more variety, the split-screen could have at least allowed for a horizontal option and the number of tracks do not seem all that different. Online play is fun, but a matchmaking like Halo would be a big help. In a year without many racing games to hold your attention, Sega Rally Revo is among the best.
GameSpy (Nov 16, 2007)
Gamers looking for a great arcade racing experience this holiday season should get in the seat of Sega Rally Revo. It has enough to keep any committed racing fan coming back for a good couple of months. Some may argue that the gameplay is dated and the lack of options is overly restrictive. Fair enough, stick to Gran Turismo. Everyone else should race, have fun, and enjoy the rally.

Segan autopelien suurena ystävänä kyseenalaistan avoimesti rallin saamat 90 pisteen arviot. Jos on pelannut aiempia osia, huomaa pian, että pelissä ei ole muuttunut käytännössä mikään. Jippona maaston muovautuvuus on sinällään uutta, mutta varsinaiseen peliin sen vaikutus on herttaisen pieni. Graafisesti peli olisi tämän hetken kärkipäätä, jos karkin näköiset autot eivät olisi tuhoutumattomia. Ratojakin on käytännössä vain muutama erilainen, eikä autoissa ole juuri varsinaista eroa. Ajettavuus on kyllä viihdyttävä eikä pelissä ole mitään suoranaista vikaa, mutta tämä kaikki on nähty niin moneen kertaan, että kun pintaa vähän raapaisee, tuntuu kultamaalin alla oleva muovi jo kynsissä. Jopa köykäisehkö Colin McRae DiRT vaikuttaa tämän rinnalla simulaatiolta.
IGN (Oct 09, 2007)
SEGA Rally Revo is a game made for perfectionists. Working your way through the single player game is a great challenge as you race against ever increasing competition. The gameplay is great and it looks like the visual representation of "happy," but it may not be for everyone as we've been spoiled by racing game after racing game that keep upping the ante in variety and presentation. By any measure, it has solid racing mechanics. But then, variety is the spice of life and this title could use a bit more.
Gamernode (Oct 16, 2007)
Overall, Sega Rally Revo is a fun game that delivers. Sadly, I probably wouldn't go out and buy it. There's just too much out there that I want that I'm at risk of filing for bankruptcy, and Sega released this at the worst time with Forza and PGR out and running. On the PS3 that doesn't take away as much since you can't play Forza and PGR, so if you're looking for a fun racing game this could fill a relatively empty spot in the PS3s library. I'm pretty sure most people think like me too, seeing as how it's such a struggle to find multiplayer games. At least there's always renting...
Gamesmania.de (Oct 08, 2007)
Beim Spielen von Sega Rally scheint man eine Zeitreise zurück in die 90er Jahre zu machen. Das Flair der Automatenfassungen wurde bei der Neuauflage auf jeden Fall erhalten, so dass man schon beim ersten Start mitten drin in der Rallyaction steckt. Doch für ein Spiel im Jahre 2007 bietet mir Sega Rally im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz einfach zu wenig. Flatout befriedigt mein Actionbedürfnis bei Rennspielen weitaus besser, Colin Dirt ist das deutlich motivierendere Rallyspiel. Für Sega Rally bleibt daher nur Platz für einen kurzen Zeitvertreib. Fans der Serie werden das Ganze vermutlich weniger negativ sehen und machen mit dem Kauf im Grunde nichts verkehrt. Allerdings solltet ihr zur PS3 oder 360-Version greifen, die PC-Umsetzung ist nicht sonderlich gelungen.
Extreme Gamer (Oct 22, 2007)
Transporting gamers back to a time when you could get a good gaming experience with just a quarter, SEGA proves that the arcade racing genre isn’t dead. This beautiful and dirty racer provides a fun racing experience unrealistically set in the Rally racing circuit. SEGA Rally Revo might not have every angle fully developed, but with the GeoDeformation and bright graphics all the flaws simply fade into the background as you rip up a few laps in your favourite Rally car. If you’re a fan of racing games SEGA Rally Revo is worth a look as SEGA returns to its arcade racing roots.
GameSpot (Oct 09, 2007)
Sega Rally Revo is nothing revelatory, but it is a more-than-solid arcade racer with plenty of familiar licensed cars, some tight and challenging track designs, and enjoyable online options. You can't help but feel that, with all the great racers that have recently hit both systems, Revo is just a bit behind the curve. As enjoyable as the gameplay is, its narrow focus on constant powersliding and lack of track variety may wear thin on some players. Still, this is a game worth at least trying for any fan of arcade racers, especially if you dug any of the older Sega Rally games.
Gamer 2.0 (Oct 24, 2007)
Sega Rally Revo has its market and it knows it. You probably won't change your mind about arcade or rally racing games because of this game, but if this is your genre already, or you've just liked the past Sega Rally titles, feel free to jump straight in behind the wheel. Everyone else may proceed with caution, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't proceed at all. The average player might just get too frustrated with Sega Rally Revo's problems to stick around for the solid game that lies beneath the surface.
UOL Jogos (Oct 31, 2007)
Não é revolução que o título do jogo promete, mas é gratificante ver que depois do fraco "Sega Rally 2006" a série trilha pela estrada certa. O jogo incorpora com competência o sistema de deformação de terreno - que vêm se tornando em padrão nos simuladores de rali -, apesar de deixar de lado uma nova tendência, a dos danos nos carros após as batidas. Os principais pontos a serem melhorados em futuros jogos da série, no entanto, são a variedade e flexibilidade da dificuldade. Uma garagem mais variada não só em modelos, mas também no comportamento dos carros nas pistas - em "Sega Rally Revo" todos muito homogêneos - já seria um bom começo.
Kombo.com (Oct 10, 2007)
Sega Rally Revo captures arcade authenticity and a sense of blistering speed. Sega Rally Revo is an interesting tale of presentation vs. nuts-and-bolts gameplay. If you can get past the limited modes, non-descript tracks, and overly simple menu the gameplay is a blast. The GeoDeformation is a great feature that surprisingly works well in the greater context of the game. Races are fun, turning and sliding on the road make for some "THIS IS AWESOME" moments. Still, you might want to check out the game before you dive head first into the mud and splash around.
Game Informer Magazine (Dec, 2007)
The handling is slippery and unduly loose feeling. And, even though it's technically a "rally" title, the tracks are very simple and essentially walled on both sides. It's just not enough.
Game Informer Magazine (Dec, 2007)
While some may argue that Sega Rally fits their bill for arcade racing, I don't think there's any forgiving this game for how shallow it is. Apart from unlocking tracks, cars and paint schemes, it simply offers very little else. After playing Project Gotham Racing 4 and being exposed to just how well a racing title can bring players along for the ride, Sega Rally Revo feels like mud in the eye.
EL33TONLINE (Aug 05, 2008)
The retail price of Sega Rally has dropped significantly since launch, so it might be an idea to split the cost with a friend to get some split-screen arcade racing in, because better offerings are available for the full price of entry. At a budget price, however, Sega Rally is good for a few multiplayer jaunts, if you’re looking for a good arcade rally game.
Video Game Talk (Nov 19, 2007)
At the end of the day SEGA Rally Revo just doesn't hold a candle to the big boys. It's not going to take down Motorstorm, Dirt, Project Gotham, Need for Speed, or Gran Turismo; though I suppose it doesn’t have to. What Rally Revo does well is create an arcade experience that rivals what you'd expect if you walked into a sweaty pit with quarters in hand. It's a visceral racing title that takes the genre back to its roots but it in no way pushes the envelope. If you're looking for a pick up and play racer or simply are a fan of the series I'd recommend it for a rental.
Gamestyle (Dec 26, 2007)
If Sega Rally had been released eighteen months ago then we would have been more receptive to its limited driving experience. However since them Gamestyle has tackled MotorStorm and Colin McRae DiRT, both of which are superior and push the Playstation 3 more visually. Sega Rally cannot even compete with either title in terms of driving experience, or even the WRC releases for the Playstation 2. Frankly its just another ‘they shouldn’t have bothered’ renamination from Sega, when the fans deserve much more.
Game Revolution (Oct 23, 2007)
Generally speaking, though, Sega Rally Revo does nothing terrible or game-breakingly wrong. It simply doesn’t take the experience any further than arcade racing circa 1993. There was a time when the sight of four full-size arcade racing compartments sitting side-by-side would have made me giddy with excitement. So much of what makes that experience so exhilarating are the immersive additions like pedals, shifters, full-size bucket seats, and a crowd of observers. Without all of the environmental additions, Sega Rally Revo is an average racer at best.
