A name. A legend. One of the most exciting challenges in the world. Sébastien Loeb Rally EVO is the new Milestone IP dedicated entirely to the world of rallying. The game is inspired by the greatest rally driver of all time: Sébastien Loeb. The nine-time world champion lays claim to a career of challenges faced down, limits overcome, and goals fulfilled, through dedication, skill, and an unrivalled passion for the grittiest sport of all. Drive the cars that made rally history and travel around the world, participating in the most important events. Display your skills, keep control of your vehicle on the toughest and most dangerous tracks, beat your rivals, conquer podiums, and revel in the glory.
DiRT Rally is certainly the better rally game, but Loeb EVO also has its strong points. If you know DiRT Rally inside and out and are eagerly waiting for new tracks, the game is certainly interesting for you. There is a demo showing a route in Monaco....
But don't uninstall it right away, just because you have problems with the controller at the beginning - it's better to fiddle around a bit. Calibrating the steering wheel, VSync off helped me to get the steering and frames right. During the actual game I had no more problems at all. The driving physics is not bad but can't get at DiRT Rally. Nevertheless, I am enthusiastic about the scope: eight rallies, each with two long and two short stages back and forth, is a four-day event with two stages each. The career is reasonably motivating. Here rally-, rallycross-, hillclimb and various other events alternate. The most interesting thing for rally fans is certainly the possibility to have an individual championship with all rallies and that is possible. Otherwise you drive up slowly for credits and reputation and buy new cars from different classes. The more I play the game, the better I like it. I wanted to give a positive review, because I find that 57% approval of the game do not do justice. Anyone who knows WRC4 from Milestones certainly agrees that Loeb Rally EVO is a giant step forward :)
Loeb fans also get their money's worth, because the master himself tells many anecdotes and stories about his career in several interview videos. These films are linked to special events, which in the 'Loeb Experience' represent a kind of second mini career in the game and in which you then replay stages from Loeb's career - from the beginnings to his time as world champion. Nice: here once released cars are then also available in the actual career! No matter what you think of Loeb, they've done a great job and it's also interesting - nine times world champion has to imitate him ^^
