Takes you to a world where all that matters is how sweet you took that last corner.
Edit: I now have over 4,500 miles driven with a van. I am the true white van man.

Art of Rally is a racing game that explores rally's golden era with an unabashed fervor and tasteful minimalist (but not too much) graphical design. The game has such a passion for the sport and driving in general, that it resonates through the whole experience. Is there a plot? Not in a traditional sense. Every stage is a story, from popping your tire when you decided to cut on a hairpin or nailing that upcoming corner after hitting an incline flatout. A narrative isn't necessary, because the experience communicates to you what the era of driving is like, as you see the vehicle grow immensely in power, adapt all-wheel drivetrains, and feel in your own hands the exponential speed the technology was growing as you struggle to keep up with the extra power as many drivers at the time did, as it was at the end of the Group B era of fast but dangerous experimental race cars. It's perspective might not be standard, but is welcome in malaise of similar looking racing games, especially so since you will not be hearing from a co-driver. The cars are all here and you'll recognize them not just by how they look, but how they drive too, each feeling sublime in the hand but distinct as well. Evidently, the developers passion didn't end at just making the game itself as they continue to release updates since the games release. This is fantastic, especially considering the games relatively niche status. Don't let a $25 price tag scare you, it's completely worth asking price. It's the Alfa Romeo of racing games: not many people are going to own it, but it is nonetheless a treat for those who do and an absolute gem that bleeds passion. If Forza Horizon gets you down with shoddy online racing, if Need for Speed is too cheesy, if Assetto Corsa is too involved, if Wreckfest is too lacking in sportsmanship, and if Gran Turismo is too on Playstation, Art of Rally will be here to pick up the pieces, tell you everything is alright, and to focus on the one thing that matters: the drive. What beautiful drive it is.

An excellent game for anyone who likes driving games, but doesn't necessarily want a singular focus on competition. While this game does track times and who "wins", there is no interaction between drivers, and last place can get the same rewards as first place; turning the focus to personal improvement and fun, rather than being the best among other drivers. On top of that, the driving system is not only enjoyable, but feels very fair. When something goes wrong, I don't blame some feature of the game, I just tell myself I'll do better next time.
Besides great gameplay, Art Of Rally is also a very visually pleasing game. The scenery and lighting are excellent; though some people may prefer realism over the low-poly aesthetic that I enjoy in this game.
On top of everything else, this game is backed up by an incredible soundtrack that I often find myself listening to on my own time as well. I highly recommend downloading it.
I do have a few nitpicks, though they come up so infrequently they're hardly worth mentioning. Some barriers feel as if they shouldn't stop your car as well as they do; such as the plastic mesh fencing, which I don't believe should bring a rally car at 100MPH to a full stop. Some map geometry also feels more punishing than is necessary. For instance, some bumps off the side of the road will send you flying in a headfirst roll; or the stones that line the road in some sections of the Germany map, which seem to bring your car to a violent stop if you even slightly graze them with the side of your car, and leave you in a difficult position to recover from.
But then again, if I could just manage to stay on the road, none of these would be a problem, so it all comes down to user error again.
Overall, I think this is an excellent game. I came here from the recent Forza games, and I've found this to be a much more enjoyable experience free from unfair AI drivers, complex car tuning, and a reward system that can leave people disappointed and upset.
Pretty much, if you just want to relax, drive, and enjoy getting a little better each day, this is a game for you.

Review from Steam

art of rally is a driving game unlike any other. To begin with, the OST for the game is INCREDIBLE. I believe that almost every song is original to the game and all of them SLAP. The graphics are simple yet inspired - despite the relatively low-poly look of the game, because of the way that lighting is implemented, performance was not fantastic, certainly something to think about if you are looking at this game because you think it looks easy to run on your crappy PC.
At its heart, art of rally is based around the idea of creating an incredibly tight, easy to learn, difficult to master driving mechanic. Learning where your skill and the grip of your tires meets is the central goal of art of rally - its not about the graphics or the awesome music, its about the best driving model you will play with outside of Forza or NFS. You constantly feel like you are fighting these historically-inspired rally beasts as you try your best to not spin-out in the corners or blast off the track. The more you play, the better you get at cornering and braking and recovering from mistakes. The first time you successfully drift around a corner without completing pulling the brake or stopping the gas will be when the game suddenly "clicks" for you.
All together, art of rally packages cute graphics, an incredible OST, and an enjoyable driving model all into a decidedly pretentious, artsy package that somehow makes the whole thing that much better. If you like racing games, this should be an easy pick-up for you. Forget spinning a wheel for a free car or trying to outrace the cops, this is the game to play if you want the only challenge to be keeping your car on the road!

Review from Steam

art of rally is soulful, passionate and was made with love. I absolutely adore this game, but would caution you to try it before you commit to keep it. Its retro steering controls are imprecise and finnicky, and with simcade physics this game has a fierce learning curve. And it's unforgiving, you may find it more frustrating than fun.
You need to approach this seeking a challenge, and with a willingness to learn and occasionally to suffer. But if you do, there's so much to love about art of rally.

Review from Steam

Very nice and one of a kind game
Art of Rally is absolutely awesome in what it does. I played it during the year it was offered on Xbox game pass. I was looking at the promo video and screenshots and thought the graphics/gameplay & physics isn't going to be that great. However the graphics are pretty good, while not like a AAA game, its unique in its own style. But when I played it I found it to be enjoyable. There are many different cars you can unlock that are knockoffs of real life brands of rally cars. There is so much that is unlockable as you race through the many different rally tracks based on real life areas. The default camera can be not the best, but there is a workaround to download a mod to pretty much have camera views like you would normally expect in a racing game. If you enjoy racing and driving and just want something different to try, I would pick Art of Rally up. Don't let the graphics and pictures steer you away.
