  • Summary: The only officially licensed game of the World Rally Championship, WRC brings you all the authentic action and excitement of the rally circuit, as you race over 100 tracks in some truly massive racing locations. The unique 'go anywhere' engine means that the road is no longer the only route to the chequered flag, so you'd better be careful on those mountaintop bends. [Sony Europe] Expand

  1. A grueling 81 stages of the World Rally Championship await you, all modeled using satellite topography and some of the finest graphics you'll have seen on the PS2 yet. [June 2002, p.101]
  2. 87
    Eye-numbing visuals, easy to pick up driving, excellent stage design, and more modes and secrets than you can shake a stick at, Evolution Studios have created a monster.
  3. In additional to being visually stunning, WRC nicely captures the excitement and the general feel of rally racing and will surely appeal to diehard rally fans and newcomers alike.
  4. 80
    It's got great track variety, quality graphics, and a bevy of options.
  5. Simply the best rally game for the PS2, and directly in competition with Rallisport for the hearts and minds of rally racing.
  6. Racing along bumpy gravel or icy roads at breakneck speeds is a great thrill, despite some unrealistic collision mechanics.
  7. I would not recommend this to anyone new to the genre. Play "GT3: A-Spec" instead - it costs the same amount and is a much, much better experience.
