I'm a bit late, but I just finished Rally Adventures today, and I feel like I had waaay more fun than I should have. Maybe I was predisposed to like it anyway, being a big fan of Dirt 2/3 and having started off my whole rally game adventure with Colin McRae Rally 3 of all games, but regardless I had a great time with it. I wanted some sort of rally mode ever since FH4, so it was gratifying to see it actually made.
Almost everybody’s already said it at this point but routes were properly amazing. Screaming down the twisty road while pulling 60 MPH in D class cars has never been more fun, and even the high powered RWD trucks and buggies feel great to rally in a way they wouldn't be if twelve of them were hurtling down the two-cars wide road. Having the co-driver in helicopter seemed weird at first, but I think chasing the helicopter around did a nice job of showcasing arcady flair that wouldn't be present in serious rally sim quite as much.
And that arcady flair is what I really like about this personally, it's something I've wanted to see again for a long time. Like I'm legitimately happy to see a rally game that recognizes people who isn't a die hard rally nerd might want to play a rally game too. I wish there were more contents, but considering it's a 20 dollars expansion, I think I got more than money's worth of enjoyment out of it. Very satisfied.
But I do have a one serious complaint, and it's that I didn't get the Alpine A110 from the wheelspin until I was finished with the expansion. Talk about a rotten luck 😡
