By marrying some of the tenets of the Forza series with those in rally racing, this driving game may be fun to both hard-core fans of the sport as well as those unfamiliar with its style. As with the recent Forza games, Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo allows you to adjust or just not utilize such support systems as automatic braking and steering assistance. It even lets you rewind and redo a part of a race if you make a mistake, and it can show you the best path to take. But what sets it apart from other games is that this is all about rally racing. As such, you don't always race against other cars at the same time. Instead, you often race against their best times and do so on narrow, twisty tracks. You also have a copilot, who informs you as to the path of the track, whether an upcoming turn is to the left or right, and how sharp the turn is. As a result, this is a racing game that won't appeal to every race fan. And not only because it can be rather challenging. Not having to weave in and out of traffic makes this feel very different -- more like it's you against the road, not other drivers, while the copilot giving you directions takes away from the surprise of a hairpin turn you didn't see coming. Also, while turning on all the assists makes this play like a Need for Speed game, turning them all off doesn't make it as realistic as, say, a Gran Turismo. But for those into being challenged and being told what to do, this racing game will not only appeal to rally fans but may make some new fans as well.
