I just bought it on Steam.

Please, my fellows - tell me many nice things about it so that I feel exceedingly good when I wake up :D

If it's the new Sega Rally Revo (was released on PS3/360 and PC) then it is one of the few racing games that I constantly go back to. It's hugely fun, and looks amazing... However... There is a huge learning curve with it, some people find the control a bit "twitchy", but that's the way Sega Rally has always been. I've always been really good at it, but some of my mates hate it because they can't control it (the same reason they hate the new Outrun HD!). You'll enjoy it if you like Arcade Racing Games.

Yeah, the control system isn't like driving. It's similar to Ridge Racer and Outrun 2 in that it's a discipline learned for this game only so once you 'get it' it's brilliant. A solid arcade racer and close enough to the feel of the original to be classed as a worthy sequel.

I hated it :oops: Maybe cause I was so awful at it though. If your even remotely greater than "very censored" at games you'll probably enjoy it from what i've heard from others.

The newish Sega Rally game on the PS3 is a bag of wank! The original Arcade and Saturn versions rock.

The new Sega Rally on PS3 is far from a bag of wank, however I could forgive gamers for thinking so as already stated it has a very strange learning curse as the steering takes some getting used to. At first it feels like it almost has a mind of it's own and what driving techniques works for some corners doesn't appear to work for others, that is until you realise that ever car in this game is truly different (not just a different lick of paint). No other game makes such a clear distinction between the weather environments and how the cars handle, and this includes on the track as it deals with it dynamically. So in short, it's a great game if you give it the time it deserves and don't get too frustrated trying to get used to it.

I had the good fortune of playing Sega Rally 3 in the arcades recently and it's pretty much the same game as this bar running at 60fps instead of 30 which the PS3/360 versions run at.

Picked up the 360 version a while back for a fiver, despite not being a fan of the original it's not too bad, certainly worth a fiver anyway.

I love the recent XBox 360 Sega Rally. I bought it for 10 quid and really enjoyed it's simplicity.
