Art Of Rally Review
Posted: 17 months ago, last updated 8 weeks ago.
It's a combination of instinct and memory that Lonely Mountains Downhill delivered so well. The environment and rendering of trees and sunsets impact what you can see of upcoming hazards. It looks exquisite, but it is the motion of the car and sense of skill needed from the driver that really works well.
You progress through 60 stages (from Finland to Sardinia, Norway, Japan and Germany) of the golden years of rallying in Career Mode with over 50 iconic cars from the 60s, 70s, 80s, Group B, Group S & Group A. You repair your vehicle in-between stages to enhance performance. Or you can simply head into the leaderboards for daily and weekly challenges.
The handling model has been overhauled from that in Absolute Drift and is much more predictable and less punishing.
From beginner-friendly options to driving modes that’ll challenge the most expert drivers, all players can tackle the races using their favourite rally driving tricks: Scandinavian flick, counter steering, left foot braking, handbrake turns.
You can adjust the camera to change how large the car appears. You can also adjust the heads-up display. You can disable camera shake and roll. There is a visual display of the audio rev indication. You can control vehicle sound and music separately. Audio feedback for the level of revs of the car.
There is some small text used in the menus, but you can resize and adjust the size of this and the Head Up Display.
There is Onboarding to get you set-up with controls and a car that is suited to your ability. This outlines the main aspects of controls and tweaks to performance you may need to adjust.
