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.
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.
We think Milestone should have put more effort into this game, since there are little additions compared to the previous edition. The foundations are great, and the game is pretty good indeed, but there's still a long way to go.
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.
