Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

World Wide Rally from Digital Dreams Multimedia (DDM) is an average first-person rally racing game. A wide variety of rally cars and courses unfortunately do not make up for the game's many shortcomings, chief among which is the very unrealistic physics engine that makes you feel as if this is a bad clone of Carmageddon rather than a supposedly realistic rally simulation. I tried slowing the game down, but even at slow speed it still doesn't feel like driving a real car. Worse still, the game is very easy - I am by no means a racing expert, yet I was able to beat most computer opponents without really knowing what I was doing ;) The various courses - taken from around the globe - are nice at first, but you will get bored after the first 2-3 laps with the lack of detail. All in all, fans of Papyrus' celebrated NASCAR Racing series will feel short-changed but this budget title that more or less deserves it obscure status. Avoid, unless you must play every rally game ever made..min
