V-Rally is the latest Electronic Arts entry into the racing world. Features over 42 tracks and 11 cars as well, an impressive lineup compared to most racing games. This is one of V-Rally's biggest draws, because even though there are so many tracks, they don't suffer from weak layout or boring level design. Each track has its own look, and there are plenty of conditions (dirt, asphalt, snow, rain) to race in. Rally fans take note, the car lineup is a nice collection of rally cars, including the Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer, and various other name brand cars. V-Rally has some of the nicest-looking graphics around, with smooth backgrounds and colorful scenery. The tracks are pleasing to the eye. The cars themselves look good as well, although not as detailed as the tracks. The sound effects are average, nothing great but at least the engine sound lacks that annoying whine that can plague racing games. The music is fairly good, composed of the typical rock-type music found in racing games, with a few tracks slightly above par. The biggest draw to V-Rally is the graphics and the huge number of tracks. All in all, V-Rally could have been one of the best driving games ever. --Dave Toister--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc.
