    WRC 7 is racing for the sake of racing. In its purest form, it is full to the brim with exciting tracks across a huge variety of locations. The handling model fits as a simcade and it’s extremely fun, feeling rewarding while still offering up plenty of challenge even for veterans of the series. It does suffer from a completely forgettable career mode, but at the end of the day the game was never trying to be a rally career manager. It was trying to be a rally racing game and, in that, it has succeeded with flying colors. If you’re just looking to play in the dirt, WRC 7 is an excellent experience you’ll be glad to have played.

    An enjoyable rally sim, with a good tracks reproduction and a very challenging mode in the long Epic Stages. It lack a bit in the content area though, especially in the Campaign mode, and the co-pilot can be improved.

    WRC 7 is a huge improvement on the previous games. The game looks beautiful, the circuits are exciting and the driving is excellent. Unfortunately the presentation is disappointing and we would like to have more game modes.

    For ardent rally fans then, WRC 7 is well worth a look. The often dull visuals are well worth enduring for the brilliant track design on offer, and after some tweaking the handling model is very rewarding. It’s doesn’t do much to improve on last year’s offering, but those after up-to-date teams and a new challenge to get stuck into will find that it does just enough to make their investment worthwhile.

    For more casual fans there's much more on offer there albeit without the real-life licensing. It's got more modes, more vehicle types and ultimately, more longevity before you have to think about the multiplayer option. It also doesn't implement any artificially bad handling.

    If you’re looking for a casual racer, the experience may be just what you’re looking for, but those hardcore racers out there may be left disappointed.

    There are some improvements and some progress in WRC 7, but if you own WRC 5 or WRC 6, it’s hard to justify buying this year’s edition. [12/2017, p.73]

    It's definitely not DiRT Rally (=the pinnacle of rally games);
    - It's main difficulty is with not making the car spin out of control, not that hard, while hitting anything on the side of the road has almost no consequences. Breaking bushes has no effect + looks like shh
    - The sound is worse
    - Only contemporary cars, no class B
    - It has this weird feel, not straight, but cars seem to slide like in them arcade games
    + The locations are cool
