    WRC 4 is a bit more "pretty" and appealing than WRC 3. The new handling system is great, has been further refined, made even more exciting (finally, different surfaces returns different grip), with lots of fine tuning control on the steering wheel. That said, the new rally Milestone is not yet a true prodigy of beauty.

    With his new engine, Milestone was capable to offer his best rally game; however it’s still not good enough to compete with the best racing games out there. WRC: FIA World Rally Championship 4 is a good game, with tons of licenses and contents but his stange mix of simulation and arcade game could be disappointing for hardcore gamers.

    WRC4 is a loyal to its predecessors, and some small improvements make it the ideal product for rally and motorsport fans. Even with its shortcomings, it is a racing title that will be thoroughly enjoyed by speed freaks.

    A very complete and relatively fun rally experience that lacks any kind of novelty.

    Signs of progress are invisible and generally speaking, WRC 4 is a secondary experience within a genre that does not have many alternatives, but they are certainly better than this.

    Every year the WRC franchise gets better. WRC 4: FIA's licenses are perfectly in order, the career mode is a lot of fun and the tracks are varied. On the other hand, the game lacks challenge, has an overabundance of loading times and disappoints audiovisually.

    WRC 4 looks a lot like those annualised soccer franchises. Very few evolutions, and nothing but new fills this 4th game of the series, which does not improve by aging. We feel that Milestone has given up, and has just done the bare minimum to keep the franchise alive and make payment for the WRC's rights. Made with no passion, this tasteless game will occupy the most dedicated fans for a few short moments before it's forgotten. Very poor gameplay and a lack of finish won't make many people happy about it. Too bad for the rallye game fans who will have to wait quite some time before they can find a worthy game. Until some new publisher get hold of the license?

    WRC 4 is just AWESOME!!
    Milestone finally listened to the rally fans and we can feel it. Handling is really simulation-oriented without
    driving helps and especially using a steering wheel. The audio makes you be in a real rally car and the career mode is just what I wanted for this title.
    Thank you so much Milestone!

    Better loading times, textures, phisycs and overall presentation.
    It already was the best rally franchise available (I said rally, not
    gimcana), but now it's REALLY GREAT.
    The gameplay, for me, is unparalleled even on the joystick, although a good wheel improves the experience tremendously.
    Good job, Milestone. That's the way.

    This game feels kinda like a rip-of after a few hours of play. Why? Well the driving is kinda of OK, there´s some driving aids in there that ccan be turned on and off and really have a big impact betwen a more arcade or simulation gameplay experience, and the graphics are not bad. BUT other than that, the rest of the game is a cheap experience. The sound effects are bad, the career mode is dull and boring, but the worst thing is, its suposed to be 13 Rally comptetions with 6 stages/courses each, wich should be 78 stages/courses total right? WRONG, in reallity its just like 20 or so original courses, the rest they just use the same stages on reverse or with some minor side road diference, even thou they use diferent names and try to pretend its an entirelly diferent new course. I mean how cheap is that??!!
    SO i think this game is only worth buying on some 10$ sale. More than that is just a rip off.
