Sega Rally 3 is a 2008 arcade racing game developed by Sega Racing Studio for Sega Europa-R arcade hardware. It is a direct sequel to Sega Rally 2 and was developed simultaneously with Sega Rally Revo. During development, it went under the codename of Super Challenge.

Gameplay

Sega Rally 3 contains three racing modes: World Championship, Quick Race and Classic. World Championship mode is a single player game which takes place across three stages (Tropical, Canyon and Alpine) and largely follows the format of the previous Sega Rally arcade games. The game is a 22 car race played to a time limit, and the player's starting position for one race is determined by their finishing position in the previous race. Unlike the previous games in the series, each race contains two laps. If the player finishes the third stage in first place, they are able to play a head to head race on the bonus Lakeside track.

Quick Race is a single or multiplayer mode, in which six cars (containing any mixture of human and AI players) race three laps on any of the three World Championship courses. In World Championship and Quick Race modes, players can choose from one of six licensed cars from Citroen, Ford, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Subaru and Suzuki. Additionally, in Quick Race players can choose two secret cars: the Bowler Nemesis and the McRae Enduro.

Classic mode is a single or multiplayer mode which takes place on the Desert '95 track, recreated from the original Sega Rally arcade game. In single player, the mode is a head to head race against a single AI opponent, while multiplayer allows for up to six human players with no AI opponents. The Toyota Celica and Lancia Delta HF Integrale cars from the original Sega Rally can be used in this mode exclusively.

The game runs at 60FPS at a 720p resolution as opposed to the 30 frames per second of Sega Rally Revo. The contents of the two games are similar, but not identical.

Cars

Notavailable.svg Citroën C4 WRC
The Citroën C4 WRC, was Citroën's rally car of choice between 2007 and 2010, winning the WRC driver's championship in every year of service (and the manufacturer's championship in 2008, 2009 and 2010). In Sega Rally 3 the car is based on the 2007 model.
Notavailable.svg Subaru Impreza WRC 2008
The Subaru Impreza WRC 2008, is Subaru's car for the 2008 WRC, which performed reasonably well during the season. Previous Subaru rally cars are available in older Sega Rally games.
Notavailable.svg Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is a continuation of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution series which featured prominently in Sega Rally 2. The X saw some success during 2008/2009 though was unable to reclaim the titles earned by previous models.
Notavailable.svg Ford Focus RS WRC 07
The Ford Focus RS WRC 07 is Ford's rally car of choice for 2007.
Notavailable.svg Suzuki SX4 WRC
The Suzuki SX4 WRC, replaces Toyota cars as the token Japanese vehicle, using its 2008 WRC attire.
Notavailable.svg Peugeot 207 Super 2000
The Peugeot 207 Super 2000 won the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in 2007, 2008 and 2009, but never a WRC. Its colour scheme appears to be completely unique to this game.

Cabinet

Sega Rally 3 is available in four different cabinet configurations: a large single player deluxe cabinet with motion simulation system, a large single player deluxe non-motion cabinet, a smaller twin non-motion cabinet and finally a single player non-motion cabinet (for the US market only).

The deluxe motion cabinet includes a 62" High Definition DLP monitor and a dual actuator motion simulation system which moves the players seat in direct response to the on screen action. Up to six cabinets can be linked for multiplayer racing.
