So, in case you missed it, I'm pretty stoked about SEGA Rally Revo for Xbox 360. Some early reviews are in: IGN UK gave it 8.8/10 and EuroGamer gave it a 9/10. Knowing this makes me ache for it more. If you're thinking about picking up SEGA Rally Revo, it's officially out today (09/17/07) in the UK--those in the US will have to wait until October 9th. And if you just want to check it out first, the Demo has just hit Xbox Live. At over half a gig, it's one of the smaller demos out there, but we'll let the gameplay speak for itself.


Here's IGN UK:

SEGA Rally is a refreshing break from realistic driving sims then. It's got an arcade engine throbbing under its bonnet which makes the game challenging and fun in equal measure. Indeed, SEGA Driving Studio has pulled off the impossible by capturing the essence of the original series and combining it with advanced in-game effects made real by next-gen technology.


And here's EuroGamer:
Sega Rally is easily the freshest arcade driving experiences to have emerged in years, providing more wide-eyed excitement in five minutes than most games manage in five hours. Not since Burnout 2 has a driving game stood out as so completely different to everything else, and provided so much instant, moreish entertainment to such a high technical standard. To find a game that strips out the pointless and unnecessary padding and gets back to, you know, making the actual racing the fun bit is worthy of celebration on its own, but to then underpin the whole thing with deformable tracks is a masterstroke. As one of the most important and well-realised ideas to hit the racing genre, it's something I'd urge any racing game fan to try out. Sega Rally isn't just a nostalgic remake, but a genuinely revolutionary twist that takes arcade racing in a new direction.
