'V-Rally 3' (Xbox) - Screens

After last summer's successful PlayStation 2 release of the greatest V-Rally yet with V-Rally 3, Eden Studios has gone back in to the development studio to work on the Xbox release. Utilising the unique technological architecture of the Xbox, they have produced two real innovations to make V-Rally 3 on the Xbox a much different and refined experience than that of its PlayStation 2 counterpart. Firstly, dynamics have been improved to produce more sensitive and responsive handling; easier yet still simulation oriented.

Secondly, Eden Studios have totally overhauled and refined the in-game special effects. "V-Rally 3 on Xbox is not a lazy port of the PlayStation 2 version. The great work done on the handling and the in-game special effects gives VRally 3 its own distinctive identity on Xbox and is a great way to introduce this legendary racing franchise on to a great console." said Larry Sparks, Vice President of European Marketing.

In addition to these major improvements, further new features appear on the Xbox version: Saves files will use the built in hard drive, the Ford Focus livery has been updated, and tracks have been widened and improved for a superior driving and racing experience

Combined with the exceptional handling developed by Eden Studios and the addition of real car noises, V-Rally 3 is a serious contender for the Xbox rally crown.
