A journey through the golden age of rallying
The premise of art of rally is as personal as its own proposal, as we say, halfway between simulation and arcade. And what kind of gameplay can a title with these characteristics offer? To begin with, the control is demanding, with several aspects that we can configure at the mechanical and user experience level; on the other hand, its casual and minimalist character is noticeable both in its personality and staging and in the peculiarities of an aerial camera, almost overhead, which offers us a wide perspective of the different sections. All this results in an explosive mix of both sensations and driving experience, bringing together aspects of both aspects of the driving genre and that manages to convince after some adaptation games. And it is that from the beginning and with the most accessible configuration, art of rally represents a challenge; although there is always room to go one step further at the level of difficulty.
