Review by Tom Allen
3½ Stars out of 4

Test Drive V-Rally for Dreamcast is very similar to V-Rally 2 for PlayStation, particularly in the track editor. TDVR far out-paces the PS version, however, in terms of graphics and controls. The snow level that we tried in Time Trial mode simply blew us away.

The best part of this game, though, is the view from inside the car. Press Y to cycle through the views, and you'll which one we're talking about. Seeing the edge of the windshield, the rear view mirror, and the roof of the car from the inside is just great. The limited yet panoramic view is much more realistic than any other view, and it really adds to the intensity of the driving experience.

The game also has real-time damage, which allows you to see the wear and tear on your car as you drive, crash, and drive some more. Even the mud collects on your car. Small touches like that are appreciated. Another example of a small touch is the occasional pedestrian who will run out into the road and take a picture of you. Too bad you can't run him over!

With 16 officially licensed rally cars, 10 bonus cars, and 80-plus tracks in 12 countries, Test Drive V-Rally will sustain interest for quite some time. Serious racing fans should not overlook this comprehensive title.
