When Sega Rally first hit the Saturn back in 1995, it was the only rally game in its class. Now that everyone and their mothers are putting out a rally racer, it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. So what does Africa offer gamers that GT3 or RalliSport Challenge does not? Mostly a scenic buzz through Africa and little else. That's not to say GTC isn't worth your time. After all, it's hard to complain about a game that features almost two dozen graphically solid, jungley tracks. A healthy stable of licensed rally cars that look nice and control well doesn't hurt either. But for everything that GTC does well, the overall impression one gets playing the game is that it's rather bland. Perhaps it's the lack of feedback in the Dual Shock controller. Or maybe it's because the tracks are wide and navigable enough to negate the need for powersliding or other Rally-esque habits. Then again, the full grid of competitors you race against (and the lack of a vocal copilot) might be the reason that GTC Africa feels like just another racing game.
