Description: Last year's 4x4 Extreme Rally was a well made, entertaining game and proved very popular, but it was easy to see there were improvements that needed to made. Well, the good news is that they HAVE been made and have left the game a lot more fun without making any compromises. It looks better, there's multiplayer, and after hours and hours of playing I can honestly say Gameleons have got it right!
There are 3 modes of play available - time trial, race and cup. They all pretty much explain themselves, time trial will get you trying to achieve your fastest time possible, race pits you against 3 other cars, and cup is a tournament-like mode. To fully enjoy the game you'll need to play all the modes, as cup can only be unlocked by winning certain races and getting the fastest time in time trial. The controls are the same as last year and are very simple, you can use the D-pad on your handset or 2, 4, 6 and 8 to steer your rally car around the courses.
The racing itself is enjoyable, each race lasts a minute or two and you'll always be on your toes, it is very easy to crash and when you do it'll be a challenge to come back and win. The steering system is smooth and well-designed, and in each course there are hazards to try and stop you, things like puddles and lakes. They all add to the excitement and challenge though, and make this game a tough one to master. Tough, but very rewarding once you do indeed master it.
One thing I really liked about this game and the factor that'll probably keep you going and trying again and again is the ability to tune your car. Come first in a race and you'll get points to upgrade your car - improve the handling, acceleration, whatever you like. Come last however, and not only will it make you feel depressed but also you'll be stuck with your non-improved car, with no bonus points. There are 4 different cars available and the upgrades carry throughout all the modes - meaning that if I win a race and upgrade my car in race mode then I can use my upgraded car to beat time trial mode. It's a clever system and it kept me interested in the game.
Probably the biggest addition in this new version of 4x4 Extreme Rally 2006 is multiplayer. That's right, now thanks to Gameleon's new MultiYou! feature, you and a buddy can settle any arguments or disputes or just have a bit of fun with a simple rally race. Because of it's pick up and play nature and the simplicity in the controls, 4x4 Extreme Rally 2006 is made for multiplayer and it plays great.
4x4 Extreme Rally features an abundence of shortcuts, none that will guarantee a victory but all of which are short little de-tours or other ways of getting around the course that'll help you just that little extra bit. They're fun not only because you feel clever for discovering them, but also because finding them does add that extra challenge to the game, you'll want to complete each course time and time again to find its secrets and work out the best, quickest way to get around. And you'll need to, these races aren't easy and the game presents an unrelenting challenge. One thing that annoyed me about the original game was the fact that there were some BIG shortcuts that could be found that would cause you to be disqualified, some in fact meaning you could bypass half the course and win easily. This has been fixed and there's no way of getting disqualified now, do whatever it takes to win the race and you won't be penalized. That said, there aren't any big shortcuts to go straight to the finish line, only small detours.
There is a big graphical improvement over the last game, Gameleons have ensured that you aren't just buying the same game as the original just in an expanded package. The game does look a look more detailed and is on the whole a lot better looking than its predecessor, with improved animations like rain and snow. The sound is also excellent, 4x4 Extreme Rally 2006 gives you 5 different music tracks to choose from when racing, something we don't see much of even in modern mobile gaming, and with track titles like 'Diesel Heart' and 'Sleep in Nude' there's no doubt you'll be pumped and ready to race. The tunes aren't half bad, either!
It's great to see a developer that can learn from its mistakes, and although the original 4x4 Extreme Rally was a very good game there was definitely room for improvement. Gameleons have done exactly the right thing; not made too many changes but the changes that have been made enhance the game greatly. The final resulting package is one that should appeal to most if not all gamers; a fun, quick, good-looking mobile game that . It's hard to see what else they could improve, this game borders on perfection, but nonetheless bring on 4x4 Extreme Rally 2007!
