Dakar 97, (SLPS-00634)
The Dakar Rally (or simply “The Dakar”; formerly known as “The Paris Dakar” or “Paris to Dakar Rally” and now as “The Lisboa Dakar”) is an annual off-road race, organized by the Amaury Sport Organization. The race is open to both amateur and professional entries. Amateurs typically make up about eighty percent of the participants.
Despite its name it is an off-road endurance race, called a rally-raid rather than a conventional rally, the terrain the competitors traverse is much tougher and the vehicles used are true off-road vehicles rather than the modified sedans used in normal rallies. Most of the competitive special sections are off-road, crossing dunes, mud, camel grass, and rocks among other obstacles. The distances of each stage covered vary from several kilometers up to 800 to 900 kilometers (500–560 mi) per day.
The PlayStation game tries to show how difficult the Dakar Rally is, but the game is just a few stages and seems too short to get a real feel for the long grueling rally. Perhaps the Dakar really deserves a longer game. The game features different camera angles and 3d graphics.
You can choose a car that cooperation with Mitsubishi, Isuzu etc. automaker, played in a real Dakar rally. Not only compete with the speed that is determined in the course, there is a degree of freedom such as shortcut course aimed at risk preparedness. Realistically reproduces the sound of words, such as the Navigator and the exhaust sound, based on what the actual configuration courses, plenty of realism. In addition, CG movies of power will encourage empathy in documentary film real shame.
