Toyota Celica GT Rally, created for Atari ST, Commodore Amiga and PC (MS-DOS), took the racing games of the 16bits era, into another dimension.
 
Review
Toyota Celica GT RallyToyota Celica GT, is one of the most realistic driving games for the 16bits home computers. Your task is to drive you Celica and beat your opponents (time is the most important), through 30 demanding levels of rain (England), snow (Finland), sandstorm (Mexico) and other conditions. Your aid to this is your skills in driving and of course the guidance from your co-driver (much useful when low visibility is countered such as when racing in snowy Finland) but he is not a perfect. He will give some messages out, but should you want every bend and turn indicated, you will need to carry out your own Co-driver preparation. The way the Co-driver is acting can be altered the way you want by selecting the racing map area and instruct where your co-driver will indicate the soft or hard turns! The game also, supports reversed steering, an impressive for its time addition in rally games! Gear can be manual or automatic. Celica GT is one of the most impressive rally games ever released for the home-computers back to early 90s!

Toyota Celica graphics are -in one word- superb. It features great inside car view, fantastic levels with different weather conditions (just look at the snow dropping on your windscreen), realistic view of the driver shifting and turning the wheel (supported only on Amiga and ST versions). Graphics include a mix of 3D and pseudo-3D objects such as houses, forests etc and only 16 colors are being used on-screen at a time. Note that the MS-DOS version is way different in graphics (more detailed) and the game looks like being re-programmed for the IBM compatibles computers. The Amiga (and ST) versions do have frame-rate problems due to their hardware. Still though, the game is playable and quite enjoyable!
Soundwise, the game is excellent offering sampled engine FX, digitized co-driver voice (only for the Amiga and ST versions) and a nice intro 70's style music. Atari ST and Amiga versions do not have any major differences while sharing one of the greatest rally games ever.
