    Reading the review from IGN made me realise what a sad little organisation they are to rate this game so lowly. We must realise that there is much more to games than graphics and this game delivers exeptional gameplay. This game has absolutely the best fun and genuinely close racing (with no real obvious catchup) and the one lap qualifying rocks. Better than the playstations gran turismo?

Short to medium term definately however it doesn't have all of the options to construct and tweak your car. And really, a driver doesn't build their car, they race it and a racing game should have good racing which is where WDC delivers. Expand

    This is a challenging game. One of the best from N64. The graphics are very good, with good cars and courses, extremely detailed. If you looking for a good racing game with a good career mode and hard championshing, you will love WDC.

    Best racing game for the N64, but you have to come along with the car handling.

    N64 lack of decent racing games was the only negative aspect of this system. With good and solid graphics and a semi-realism gameplay, WDC was a great release for N64 fans. Apart the sound the game is very good.

  1. WDC is able to bridge the chasm between the two ends of the racing genre, arcade and sim. That, my friends, is no small accomplishment.
  2. If you're looking to hop into an intense racing experience without the hinderances of setting the vehicle up or dealing with super accurate damage than this game is for you.
  3. The system has its fair share of racing titles to be sure, but most of those games feature balloon-headed cartoon drivers or vehicles that jump over city buildings. What a breath of fresh air then, to be able to play a game on the Nintendo 64 that is at once stunning to behold and completely satisfying in its realism.
