My Opinion On Sebastian Loeb Rally Evo
I appreciate what this game was attempting to do, paying tribute to a rally legend, but truly it was a let down in so many ways. The graphics offer a sub par appearance and the driving physics leave a lot to be desired with both a racing wheel or a controller. The game is marketed as a sim style rally game, but the driving inputs don’t feel realistic at all especially when you compare them to other rally titles like Dirt Rally that also released in 2016.
The game does do a good job of putting together an entertaining career mode that span many eras of rally racing. Being I am not a hardcore rally racing fan, I actually found the experience educational. You will learn about the rally drivers the cars and the tracks as you progress.
They game does have a nice array of rally tracks from world wide locations 8 rallies, 64 stages and 5 rally crosses) and while that is pretty beefy they just arnt up to snuff graphically. For a game that is trying to be a rally sim racer, the graphics come across as arcadey and cartoonish. All the dirt, trees, rocks, and advertisements appear very flat and lack depth. The interior car cockpits also look very plain and lack the detail we have come to expect from racing games.
The driving experience itself is just ok. It’s intuitive to understand the driving inputs, but where it falls short are the feel and physics. This is particularly noticeable when using a racing wheel. I tested several different wheels with Rally Evo and non of them delivered the experience I got from competing rally titles. The force feedback seemed very artificial and choppy with not limited room to make adjustments to your experience.
Overall this game was very disappointing to me because I have had it on my radar for over a year. It’s NOT a game you should pay full price for. I would encourage you to check out the FREE demo on Xbox One before you consider purchasing the game. If you were to find the game for between $12-$15 dollars on Games with Gold or used then I think its worth it. This is a rally racer that you can skip out on and would be better off considering WRC 5 or Dirt Rally for a better experience.
