My opinion, it's okay.

If your somebody who needs action in games to stay entertained, this games probably not for you. But if you don't need figure-8 tracks, you might like this game. I'm sure if you took all the people who played this game and separate them by the people who loved it, and by the people who hated it, it would probably be half and half.

-Beautiful graphics. The replays look like real-life.
-Car damage, like busting out windows, suspension damage, ect. ect.

-Menus, now I don't mind this, but if your impatient, you'll think it takes forever just to get the game going. You have to go through all these different options screens before you get the game going.
-Remember, this is a rally game, not nascar, or "Eve of Destruction," there is no side-by-side racing. You have to beat the time of your opponent, not pass him in a race. It's like a time-trial thing.

So remember, if you like rally, rent this, heck, buy it. But if your into slamming into other cars, get a different game.

Not Backwards compatible

I was unable to play this game on my XBox360 because the backwards compatibility patch has not been completed at this time (02/01/07). XBox online includes the title on its list of titles which are compatible with 360, but in reality this is not so. Bummer!!!
