V-Rally on the Playstation soon became one of the top selling racing games in Europe ever and now Infogrames have finally launched V-Rally 99 on the Nintendo 64. Sporting a very similar look, feel and features to the Playstation original one might call this a "conversion" with a few extra features.
Overall the game offers eight rallies from the mud and swamp of Indonesia to the green and early century towns of England. Other locations include New Zealand, Corsica, Sweden, Spain, French Alps and dust and animal ridden Safari location. Each rally offers between five and eight stages in total making up a total of fifty packed courses. A selection of vehicles is also available all fully licensed including eight kit cars and four WRC vehicles (more can be earned). World Rally cars include the Mitsubishi Lancer, Ford Escort, Toyota Corolla and Subaru Impreza.
V-Rally also offers four game modes: Arcade (lets players race in stages not rallies and beat check points etc.), Championship (race in either V-Rally or Rally mode and take on full Rally stages just like in the WRC) and Time Trial (lets players race in all rallies with a selection of laps, ghost switch and stage times).
One new feature is the addition of the two-player split screen mode that lets player's race vertically or horizontally split. The introduction of player settings helps out as players can now type in preferences such as control set up and display options and save them like a "character". Game options include three difficulties, sound balances (co-pilot, engine, music), language, screen format and speed display. ~ Brad Penniment, All Game Guide
