RBR - Richard Burns Rally
and forget the rest!
RBR is what Codemasters tried to achieve with Collin McRae Rally II and where they left the club of good rally games with CMR III and the DiRT franchise.
RBR was there and yes then! Quite a while ago, so don't look for HD graphics.
Rather get a good forcefeedback steering wheel, a shift paddle and a 3 pedal foot control unit and then LEARN TO DRIVE!
What no other game has - RBR has it. This 1:1 feeling with reality.
The layout of the stages is beautiful! The car handling is a work (!) of pure concentration!
Forget these PS3-controller-controlable games!
You have to have a wheel for this to get that sensation!
Even better - get a head-tracker and look into that corner through your windscreen as you understeer left-foot-braking into the hammerhead!
Yes a 10 year old game has that all! And there is a huge community out there providing you with up to date graphics, new cars and tweeks and tracks and Championships and online races..
You want to play a rally game - try the others and then PLAY TIHS!
