Back in '94 sega released 2 awesome arcade games. Daytona USA and Sega Rally Championshp. Both were extremely popular because they looked great for their time and they were a great deal of fun. 3 years later sega releases sega rally championship for the PC. They have added a few things to the game, but the racing is pretty much identical to the arcade version.
Pick one of 3 cars (1 hidden) and race through 4 tracks (again, 1 hidden) while overtaking your opponents. The vehicles you get to choose are the toyota celica, lancia delta and lancia stratos. The handling of your car is competent, it'll turn in a realistic fashion as you slide around the corners at high speeds. Your car isnt destructable and it wont get dirty along the race but that is forgiveable for a game of its age. As you race and take over your opponents and finish a track, the position you finish a track will be the position you will start the next track at. The goal of this game is to end up coming 1st by the time you complete the last track. This game offers some extras such as 2 player with a connection to a remote computer and difficulty settings. Gamepad support is a nice addition, but it doesn't competer with the pedals, steering wheel and gear knob at the arcade.
The graphics are jaw dropping for a game made in '94 but they are outdated in '97 which was when this game was released. Over the 3 years, the graphics remain unchanged and to make it worse there is no direct3d support or even 3dfx support. Everything is software rendered which sucks especially since the textures are grainy and it would have done a lot of help to smoothen them. Pop-up is noticeable but not so much that it would annoy you much. The games highest resolution is 640 x 480 in 16bit, so you end up with pretty crappy graphics altogether.
Again, it is unchanged, but all you would expect from a rally game is here. The crowd will cheer, the co - driver feed you instructions, the tires will make noise as you take a corner at high speed. The engine noise is pretty unrealistic though. Not much to fault for a game of its age.
8 credits is more than a good deal for this game and 8mb should warrant a download for even dial - up users.
Overall sega rally championship is a good enough rally game for its small file size so unless you are saving up for something, than you should give it a go.

If it runs faster and slower, like me, a CPU grabber is recommended, my OS is Windows XP Professional, processor is Intel Celeron R.

NOTE: A Direct3d version is on Vogons. by vetz (retroCompaqguy). Also, users who played the demo, an cool "game over"music from the Saturn version, where the Redbook track was low quality.

An all-time classic at the time, of course the graphics didn't age very well but they're very on par with the PS1 graphics.
The handling is really awesome when the consumer has a Steering Wheel and Pedals. In my case, Force feedback did not work, there are 3rd party programs to enable this. Running WinXP x64.

If too fast, open dxdiag.exe leave it open and then start Sega Rally, it helps somehow. Vogons have a direct3d patch for this game btw.

Back in 1994, Sega releases 3 titles: Virtua Fighter 2, Sega Rally, Daytona USA. Sega Rally is the definitive choice. Graphics are good, crowd is the staff team, (altrough turned into blobs in Saturn and PC versions)
3 cars (one is secret) 4 courses (one is hidden)
