    A licensed simulation that provides the die-hard fans with everything they want, but also allows the newcomer to learn and build and even have a fun arcade thrash around some very pretty tracks? That seems a pretty good template to me. If the limited multiplayer was expanded upon slightly, it would be even better.

    With WRC 4, Milestone has taken a big step forward. Both the graphics and the physics are much better here than in WRC 3 and the new Career Mode is good enough to entertain both expert and beginner players.

    Thanks to a deep and convincing handling system WRC 4 gave players a solid racing experience. However, too simple and repetitive game modes and some technical issues, prevent the game from achieving excellence.

    WRC 4 continues Milestone's trend of satisfying but unremarkable rally games. Some key areas have clearly been worked on, but the core experience still lags behind Dirt when it comes to capturing the pure excitement of off-road racing, and Career mode is nothing that we haven't seen dozens of times in other racing games.

    WRC 4 is a perfect example of an annualised game at its worst, having churned out yet another sub-par performance which rests on average and has no drive to go further and actually be worthwhile.

    The co-driver and the learning curve in WRC 4 are pretty decent, and the addition of real drivers and teams is something that will appeal to the real fan. But it isn't enough to be satisfied with the game. WRC 4 suffers from uninspiring modes, weird choices, strange handling and a damage- and physics model that just isn't right. It’s a shame that this game - once again - doesn't realize his potential.

    Three strikes and you’re out? Not with Milestone and WRC suffers from it. Unless competition rises somewhere else, any new installment in this series will be merely a change in the number. [Issue#237]

    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 can 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.
