Sega Rally Championship (Nokia N-Gage review)

Developer: Hitmaker
Publisher: Sega
Released: 2004

Sega Rally Championship is a racing game that was only released in Australia.

+ More scenic variety and courses compared to the original game (1995, Arcade), as well as an increase in the number of cars.

+ Shows you the road surface conditions prior to each race and provides you with an option to fine-tune your vehicle accordingly.

- Frame-rate is low and trying to make precise movements with your car is nigh-on impossible as it's overly-sensitive and jittery.

- Cars don't feel like they're connected to the road and slide around corners in an unrealistic fashion, while missing lots of animation frames.

- No real penalty for crashing into side barriers, and although your speedometer decreases, rival cars up ahead will rarely pull away.

- Gameplay is severely lacking in speed and when you're in the middle of a race you'll notice little variance between 60 mph and 110 mph.

- While most stages look semi-decent, the Sandstorm course resembles a developer test area, as it's incredibly barren and unpolished.
