Richard Burns Rally simulates both classic and modern rallying, and is best known for its realistic physics engine.
This game is considered by many gamers to be one of the most realistic and difficult racing simulators. Richard Burns Rally was not made to be modifiable, but despite this, there are mods available due to its large online community. The game was originally an offline racing game, but user created mods have enabled online play. A sequel to the game is unlikely, due to the death of Richard Burns in 2005. In addition, after the PC release, Warthog Games was sold to Gizmondo, who went bankrupt in 2006. Since the release, the publisher SCi acquired Eidos Interactive in an all-share offer, winning a bidding war from then-former EA man John Riccitiello and Eidos management. Eidos was later acquired by Square Enix.
