WRC 5 is a new beginning for the series, and when viewed in that light, Kylotonn’s efforts come out quite well. There’s several issues, both big and small that detract from the game as a whole, but underneath it all there’s a rallying game that’s just a good bit of fun. When it’s just you and your co-pilot racing through a forest, barely making it through a series of tight twists and turns, that’s really what matter.
WRC 5 could have been fine, with its decent controls and beautiful environments. The good, however, far from outweighs the bad, which is why we can only recommend this to die hard rally fans and people who like an adversary that lets them win every single time. Shame.
New engine, new developer and hundreds of experts are, apparently, not enough. Kylotonn Games does not deliver what should be the best rally game in 2015. Full licenses and good graphics, but the physics are totally off. Combining annoying co-drivers and crashing into objects that aren't there makes this the most disappointing WRC yet.
The best WRC game is the first one on new gen consoles. The biggest improvement is the visuals, this game is actually very pretty. The game is fun and driving mechanics are not that difficult to get used to and it generally feels a little arcade like. There are options however to make the game more difficult for those who want to. But otherwise a really solid rally game that anyone who loves rally will enjoy.
Poor handling, stages design, simulation, graphics and sound.. it's a poor game. I give it a 6 because I'm a huge fan of WRC, but it's not a good game at all.
I miss old times, when the WRC saga was developed by Evolution Studios. 2005 was the last year with a good WRC release.
Graphics: 7.0 Sound: 7.8 Gameplay: 7 Fun/Story: 6
Despite graphics aren´t bad at all, there´re screen tearing, some framerate drops and some low resolution textures. They seem good if it was old generation. The best part was the sound.
A serious warning here to gamers in 2018. This game is virtually unplayable because of how bad the screen tearing is. By far the worst screen tearing of any game on the ps4 period.
I have no idea how this wasn't patched. Did they run out of money? It means a lot for me to say this because I bought it at an extremely steep discount since it's older, which means I would normally be extremely forgiving. Seriously though, avoid this game like the plague on PS4.
