Pros: The official game, with all the 2005 cars and drivers., Superb handling and physics convince totally., Those awesome Extreme and Classic Group B cars., Huge draw distances and great camera work show the game off well., The best dust plume yet.
Cons: Some stages are still just too long., A bit of tearing and occasional frame rate drops., WRC online still sucks exhaust.
