Gameplay involves driving a vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle) from a third person view, using a mini-map on the bottom left and a tach/speedometer on the bottom right. The upper right-hand side keeps track of your elapsed time for the included track course between France and Senegal. These are are only legs of the race, this game does not allow the entire rally journey.
