If I were to show a before and after video of each game that Kylotonn has developed in the series with their latest entry it would be a night and day difference. The racing mechanics have improved, along with more improved and realistic handling of your car.
Along with the graphics and mechanics the game has improved in content as well. With the addition of a set of classic rally cars to race in historic rallies, and cars from Jr. WRC, WRC 2, and the official WRC cars. Each course has been updated greatly with new graphics and physics, making your runs through the stages a whole lot more fun and challenging. A cool new addition to the game that adds a new challenge are the puddle effects, when you race through a puddle it can slow one side of the car down and if you are not in control when this happens you can also spin out pretty badly too which can lead to some bad wrecks.
Two new stages have been added that were not in the WRC 7 season, and 1 stage has been removed from the WRC 8 season. The two new stage locations are Chile and Turkey, both of these new locations add some new grounds to cover and is a good refresh from some of the repeating events in the past. The location that has been removed is Poland, due to it not being included the WRC 2019 season.
The biggest feature that I love about this game is the new dynamic weather system and the brutally epic storms you can rally through where it is barely visible. You can start the stage with no rain and then in the middle of the stage it could just downpour and make you change the way that you are handling and controlling your car to best suit the needs of the new current situation you find yourself in. These storms are a blast to race through, and add a more challenging and realistic effect to game to help improve the series even further.
If you love Rally games are a really good solid racing games, then I highly recommend that you do not overlook this game and give it a try. I believe this is the WRC game that will really pull players into the series more than it has in the past, this is a great representation of the WRC!… Expand
Average User Score: 9.2Jun 15, 2013This game is absolutely amazing. All around amazing!! I just recommend to at least give it a try before you make your own decision. From startThis game is absolutely amazing. All around amazing!! I just recommend to at least give it a try before you make your own decision. From start to finish this game is incredible, amazing story which is expected since this game comes from the same studio that developed uncharted (naughtydog). Visuals are fantastic, fighting and stealth kills are very unique and fun. I will not be surprised if this game wins a tone of goty awards. This is definitely my game of the year. Like I said before it is definitely worth playing for yourself.… Expand
