I can't say that I'm a big fan of the big 3 genres of videogames, sports games, fighting games or racing games. I have to say though, that V-Rally has definitely changed my mind about handheld racing games. The gameplay is remarkably similar to Outrun, one of my old favorites from back in the day.
The main complaint I have with racing games these days is the whole sim style. I don't want to race a 200 lap F-1Grand Prix. I want to feel like I'm driving really fast, see cool crashes and have fun, not worry about pit stops and tire pressure. This is where V-Rally excels. It is pure arcade-style racing fun. I was suprised that in some levels of the Championship Mode, the sensation of speed seemed alot faster than some PSX racing games I've played. The courses have hairpin turns, hills where if you hit them at top speed you will wipe out, obstacles in the road, rocks, and oil slicks. The tracks vary from location and terrain cement roads, dirt tracks, sand and rain. England and Sweden were my two favorite tracks.There's a OK selection of cars, the Ford Rally car being my personal choice. The graphics are really nice for a hand held and do the job just fine.
I rarely play games these days that make me clench my jaw. But this game kept me hooked, playing into the wee hours of the morning. If your looking for old school arcade racing fun, V-Rally is it!
