Rally Trophy received positive reviews upon its release. It holds an average of 82% and 82/100 on aggregate web sites GameRankings and Metacritic. The Finnish gaming magazine Pelit summarized that "Rally Trophy sets the standard for all future driving games. The graphics are absolutely stunning and the lack of inspiring game modes is compensated by the sheer thrill of driving cars that behave uniquely and realistically. A must-have for all rally fans.
IGN summarized that "[Rally Trophy] is a superb game that offers an unusual alternative to the more technology packed offerings like McRae and Pro Rally." Several critics compared the game to Grand Prix Legends including Pelit, IGN and GameSpot.
