Review by Tom Allen
1½ Stars out of 4

Mobil 1 looks a lot like Colin McRae Rally with its colorful, seasonal graphics. Like other rally games, slightly helpful pointers are used for upcoming turns.

Just when you think tracks will forever be monotonous, a short stretch of a good sight-seeing area appears… but goes by all too quickly. I don't understand why designers don't make landscapes that are awe-inspiring in their beauty. Well, actually I do. They unnecessarily pin themselves to so-called real-life courses. For example, this game is based on all 36 stages of the Official British Rally Championship.

Only recently have we been treated to colorful landscapes, as if that was some big innovation. The courses in Mobil 1 just feel closed in.

Like Beetle Adventure Racing, you have to steer by tapping the D-pad in a tap-tap-tap motion. However, this technique does not always work thanks to the erratic control, which ultimately kills the game. Go with V-Rally 2, which has a higher buck-bang ratio with its decent track editor.
