Cars aren't really designed to be driven through the driver's side window, but damn are they a joy to watch when they are. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for rallying. Never really understood the likes of drifting and traction and changing road surfaces and all that stuff, but I don't go into games wanting all of that.
I want to put the pedal to the metal and thrash through a muddy field in the middle of Europe. In the rain. While a navigator somehow keeps his cool despite shouting into my ear, and onlookers dart for cover behind the nearest bramble bush.
Rallying is messy, noisy, stupidly fast and seems to go against everything that track racing stands for, so it was only a matter of time before someone gave a bit of thought to creating a game so that we can rally in the safety of the arcades.
Sega Rally Championship is that game, and it's arguably the first game to connect players to the road beneath their wheels. Handling matters. Adapting to change is a necessity. Having a good time is mandatory, and I can't wait to play.
