An off-road racer with an incredible amount of content, S�bastien Loeb Rally Evo is let down by its own dreariness.

The care and attention that Milestone has put into it, coupled in with the frankly ridiculous amount of content (including the amount of vehicles and modes) makes this an easy recommendation to add to your collection.

Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo is not a perfect game, and Milestone would do well to make the progression a little faster via coming updates, but the mechanics as they are now are well suited for those looking for a deep sim.

With its realistic handling, impressive physics and accurately modelled tracks full of dips, ridges and undulations, Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo demands you to drive sensibly within each car's limits, yet always push yourself to achieve the best time you can

I have no affiliation with or love for rally auto sports, but after watching the 15-minute magnum opus of an intro video to the Loeb Experience mode, I was hooked.

Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo is a game that exceeds expectations. It never fully outshines the competition, but it does enough on its own to make it worth your attention.

Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo is a fantastic rally game with it's heart in the right place, but occasional technical woes stop it from reaching its full potential.

Not only is this a playable homage to the legend's career, it's also a decent rally game

A racing game full of contents and cars, fun to drive with the standard controller, but unfortunately plagued by some technical issues and an old graphic engine.

Sébastien Loeb Rally EVO doesn't do anything that really blows me away. It's a decent racing game for sure, but at the same time, it's incredibly average. At the end of the day, this game didn't give me anything that racing games I've played before haven't. If you're really into rally racing, this game is more than likely worth a buy, but if you're a novice like I, I'd recommend trying it and seeing how you feel about it.

Both pros and beginners will find enjoyment in Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo, though the latter will need to invest a lot of time into it before the driving becomes somewhat doable. Shoddy visuals, audio, and multiplayer hamper what is an otherwise solid rally package.

Outside of the officially licensed WRC franchise, Milestone's first attempt at the rally sub-genre does little to reinvent the wheel. However, Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo does offer a pleasant alternative to the previously rigid career modes found in similar titles by offering a wide range of different events in which to take part.

Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo is a well-made rally game that builds wisely and extensively on top of a rich heritage of rally games. While it ultimately fails to make up its mind about whether it's a sim or more of an arcade racer, which does hold it back in some senses, there's still no question that it's a highly worthwhile package. It's crammed with content and offers hours of driving joy without quite the same amount of grief one gets from a DiRT Rally or Assetto Corsa. Milestone has impressed massively with their latest rally offering, benefiting exponentially from the insight and presence of Sebastien Loeb. Let's hope there's a sequel!

Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo offers enough content to keep fans of the genre engaged for a long time, featuring a hard to control and even harder to master type of gameplay that many gamers will appreciate.

Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO is a solid racing game that offers a mostly basic racing experience with a few unique twists. Rally-style racing with a co-pilot navigator proves to be both fun and challenging, but with an incredibly silly collision mechanic, the game does lack a little in immersion and realism. This game could have been the very best toy car racer ever created, but as- is, Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO is a decent racer that I'd recommend particularly to seasoned racing game fans looking for a real challenge.

Visuals that are dated for 2016, but enough driving to wear out all four tyres.

Despite having a substantial batch of non-career modes, a deep roster of vehicles, and a substantial collection of maps, Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO seems to disregard a couple of the key pillars of the racing sim genre. It doesn't matter how many different ways you can play a game, if its handling and physics cannot be depended upon to produce consistently realistic results.

It's sad that a game with so much potential ends up being a little bit buggy. There are a lot of positives, but a few too many negatives, so only those with a definite interest in rallying need apply.

Milestone has clearly spent an age under the bonnet, and Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo has a content quota that's befitting of all of that attention. Unfortunately, the Italian outfit's indecision with regards to the racer's handling model means that it's not always at its best when out on the track. If you can look past this shortcoming, however, then you'll find a real celebration of the sport here – and the man who helped put it on the map for a whole generation.

Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo is a game that's solid with its gameplay and interesting within its content. Competition from other titles however, may prove to be the deciding factor in how long it remains interesting.

Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO is a dated rally racing game that has a hard time being fun. It's a shame, too, because a lot of effort was put into recreating its real-world inspired tracks, and developing its incredibly lengthy career mode.
