Sega Rally 2 is the sequel to an arcade game that made its home debut on the ill-fated Sega Saturn video game console. Despite the Saturn's demise, the original Sega Rally still holds a warm place in the heart of video game fanatics as one of the best arcade-style racing games ever created. Now the series follow-up hits the console system after a successful run in arcades. And with cars and tracks not found in the standup version, Sega Rally 2 fans should be very pleased with Sega's efforts to enhance the gameplay fun for the Dreamcast version. On the flip side, casual racing fans may find the difficulty level a bit too advanced for their tastes. Sega Rally 2 favors more of an arcade-style fantasy physics model than its predecessor, but don't expect this game to be a Sunday drive. Those looking for an exciting romp behind the wheel will likely be disappointed after numerous sideline crashes and races end prematurely due to expired time. Purists and road jockeys weaned on the likes of Gran Turismo may be able to handle the challenge factor here, but casual arcade-style racing fans may find the race too hot to handle for long-term, frustration-free fun. --Jeff Young Pros: More replay value than the coin-op version of the game Beautiful graphics Cons: Too hard to be fun for many arcade-style racing fans Backgrounds tend to pop up dramatically when the horizon is not obscured by curvy road
