Symbian UIQ version

There was a Symbian UIQ version designed for mobile phone such as Sony Ericsson P910/P900/P800.

It includes 11 configurable cars, 13 tracks of the 1997 FIA World Rally Championship season.

V-Rally Edition '99

V-Rally Edition '99, a Nintendo 64, PC port of the game, was released in 1999, offering slightly improved graphics and menus. Includes all cars and tracks of the 1998 FIA World Rally Championship.

Game Boy Color version

It includes 20 stages in 10 worldwide locations.

Game play

Unlike other rally games available at the time, such as Colin McRae Rally, V-Rally allowed two players to race directly against one another, rather than against the clock, in a split screen mode.

In both games, players can race in 10 locations. The game includes 11 official World Rally Championship cars, with 4 from WRC and 7 from Formula 2 Kit Cars.

  5. ^ The North American release of the game is tagged with an additional "Need for Speed" prefix after Electronic Arts acquired the rights to publish the game in the United States in order to help sales of the game, due to the fact that rally racing held little support in the U.S. The game was not originally intended to be part of the Need for Speed series; neither the game's development was done by Electronic Arts Canada (which at the time was the primary developer of the Need for Speed series), nor was it developed in as association with Electronic Arts in any way. The Need for Speed prefix was reused for the North American release of V-Rally 2 and dropped in V-Rally 3.
