The V-Rally game includes 45 tracks and 11 cars. And all this diversity is of the highest quality. You can drive on virtual open spaces for days and all the time to discover uncharted pieces of the route. There are night trails, mountain alpine, England fields, snow of Sweden, forests and jungle. The path can lie past sparkling lakes and green meadows with grazing sheep. The remarkable design of the trails turns everyone into the world with a unique atmosphere and exciting thoughtfulness, into a masterpiece of the game art. Beautiful light effects. The beams of headlights on the night road are perceived as the real ones, and the blinding light of the sun is really blinding! The roads have three types of coverage: gravel, snow and asphalt. If you do not have the right tires, you better not even try to go - realism! Greatly realized the possibility of playing together, especially with vertical division of the screen.
The creators of the game made a special emphasis on realism. Perhaps, this will not be liked by a certain contingent of race fans who want all cars in all games to move exclusively as in Ridge Racer. "Why can not we prune like a Ridge?" - they rage. This "racer" does not want to learn how to operate the car "really". In life, is it possible to get behind the wheel and immediately go? It is necessary to understand the machine, to study its character, to "merge" with it. If you find the patience to sit for V-Rally for two hours without having to drop the gamepad after each crash, you will finally feel how the machine feels any movement, responds to each swing of the hand. You and your iron horse become one. This is an inexpressible feeling! Each car has its own character, completely corresponding to life. By the way, Peugeot, Renault, Mitsubishi and Subaru gave their licenses for each car of the respective company in the game, and all cars were advised by the famous racer Ari Vatanen. It is worth exploring each!
