There are about 20 cars in the game. Each of them can be enhanced by a number of available parts for peak efficiency. The vehicle physics causes each of the tuned-up cars to behave differently on different surfaces, such as gravel, sand, snow, ice or asphalt.
Xpand Rally has approximately 60 tracks from different parts of the world. Races take place in the deserts, lakes, green forests and mountains. The game features changing weather conditions which can make the roads slippery and abrupt winds make the car harder to control.
It is also possible for the player driver to be killed in a crash, in which case the player will have to make a new driver profile.
Xpand Rally Xtreme
On March 6, 2006, Xpand Rally Xtreme, a sequel to Xpand Rally was announced.
Xpand Rally Xtreme contains similar content to the original Xpand Rally. In game, apart from well known rally cars, gamers find GT vehicles, DTR group buggies, off-road 4x4 cars and Monster Trucks group trucks. The game also presents about 40 tracks in typical SS contests, off-road cross-country rides, and track races against challenging opponents.
Like the original Xpand Rally, the game contains career, single race and multiplayer modes. It is based on the Chrome Engine and players will get the ChromEd editor to create their own tracks and game modes.
