Rage Rally is a typical rally racing game. The player gets to choose from two different cars (Rage Typhoon 4WD 270Bhp and Rage Phantom 4WD 300Bhp) which can be driven both from first and third person perspectives. The gameplay is action based and the cars do not take any damage, either mechanically or visibly. Four tracks are available: Goldstone, Luger, Quarry and Dyson, each with different characteristics such as setting and surface.
The game features two different game modes: arcade and time trial. In the arcade mode the player competes against three AI controlled drivers with either car on any of the four tracks. The time trial mode is similar but lacks AI controlled cars. In addition there's also a demo mode where all cars are controlled by the AI.
Rage Rally was initially designed as a demo to be bundled with 3D cards of the Inno3D brand that were released in 2000. In 2002 however, it got a retail release through Global Software Publishing's Adrenalin Collection budget range.
