Sega Rally Revo (known in Europe and Australia simply as Sega Rally) is an offroad racing video game, the 4th installment of the Sega Rally series. The game is available on Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP from 28 September 2007 in Europe.[1] The game's title is "REVO" as Sega intends it to be a revolution in rally racing games. The game was developed simultaneously with Sega Rally 3

Contents

Overview

The game was developed at the SEGA Racing Studio in Solihull, England.[2] There are over 30 different rally cars to choose from, and six different environments, with 16 tracks in total. The game was developed with the GeoDeformation engine, which makes the terrain dynamically deformable, with effects to the cars' performances. Multiplayer mode allows two players to race with split-screen, whereas online multiplayer can be set to up six racers. [1]

The game is intended to be as realistic as possible while still retaining the arcade style gameplay long associated with the Sega Rally series. Watch out though, the AI in this game is particularly relentless! The lack of a save feature between races can make getting max points a real chore as well.

Cars & Tracks

There are 34 vehicles in total, which are divided into 3 groups: Premier Class (4WD cars), Modified Class (2WD cars) and Master Class (mostly classic rally cars). There are also several bonus cars - such as Dakar types, hill climbers, buggies, etc. - in every class, which can be unlocked with points one as you progress through Championship Mode, plus an overall bonus car for getting 100% in championship mode. The (non-bonus) cars each have 3 different liveries and all have 2 setups. The setup is either off road, with better grip on loose surfaces, or tarmac, with higher top speed and more grip on hard surfaces. The different environments all feature 3 tracks (of which some can also be raced in reverse direction - at a different time off day) except for the bonus environment Lakeside that only has a single race track, and again are unlocked as you progress through Championship Mode.

The game has now been made available in all regions.

US Marketing

Part of the promotional activity in North America includes a series of three short comedy films that revolve around the antics of two valley girls as a racing partnership[4] . Titled "Tonya & Donya", the films feature the double act of Natasha Leggero as driver and regular comedy collaborator Melinda Hill, as co-driver.

Each of the films ends with the strapline "Drive like a man".

Reception

Before the game's release, reviews of preview copies have been positive. Eurogamer said that "watching SEGA Rally in action is an exhilarating and uplifting experience"[5] while British Gaming Blog rated it "above and beyond other racers and offers something unique".[6]


Game Rankings gives scores variating from 74.25% (for PSP) to 75.25% (for PC), 76.09% (for PS3) and 77.21% (for Xbox 360). IGN gives slightly better ratings: 78% for PSP and 80% for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Eurogamer goes even higher with 90% for the PC and console versions.
