From the review:
"It’s funny…just a little over a year ago, the arcade racing genre was basically dead. It seemed like people had forgotten all about it and it had gone the way of the turn-based strategy. But now, all of a sudden, it seems that arcade racers are a dime a dozen. For better or worse, there is no shortage of options and Sega decided to add to the mix by bringing back their beloved Rally franchise with Sega Rally Online Arcade. This long-winded release marks the first game in the series in about four years (unless you live in Europe)."
