Console Monster has posted their hands-on preview of SEGA Rally.
"Tyres will literally lift up or depress the ground depending on what lies beneath your tread. Mud will give way to the weight of the car creating troughs and snow will form hardened lanes and will have extreme variations in grip, but what is the point of all of this? Quite simply it completely changes your racing decisions compared to any other racing game. Before all we worried about was to take the racing line, take the corners at the right speed and exit them correctly and of course to win the race. Now throw into the mix the fact that the course can degrade and will leave changes on consecutive laps! Back to that close up of the tyre shot again and when he runs over the bumps the tyres react accordingly testing out your suspension, kicking up all manner of sludge and mess."
