Rally Driver

Back in the old days a software house called Five Ways released this program called Rally Driver. Lots of people thought it was pretty good. Now Alternative has re-released it at budget price, and I must admit that it doesn't look too good next to more recent road games.

I must confess that it isn't an arcade game, but a serious simulation. It really needs two players - one to drive the car and the other to navigate using the map on the inlay - quite an original idea, really. It's a pity that the game itself isn't that hot. The graphics are sparse and tiny, and the animation of the road is jerky.

Arcade fanatics will not like it, but simulation buffs might find it good value at this new, lower price. Play it first before you buy it.
