I know I'm rather late on this one but my wife got it for me for Christmas '08 and i have to say not a bad game. Decent controls, car set up, beautiful settings large amounts of cars to purchase and a feel of a true rally experience. This is where you say "I feel a but coming on" and here it is... This is a good game BUT it is always loading for the next race which only takes between a minute or to to complete. Just when your palms are getting sweaty from finishing your last race by the seat of your pants you have a bit of down time to let them cool off. Then half of those races you run are time trials by yourself to win the event. That"s right half the time you're racing against that little group of rolling numbers in the corner of the screen. Don't get me wrong I still like this game but paying full price for ir is alittle steep for what you get. The wife got it on sale at that place that sells games and has Stop in its name. It was the last one but it was only $34. For this game that is a great price even better would be a hits deal for $19 but with no DLC and no online play that is something I dont see happening.
