Summary: I've been exploring some old PS2 racing games lately and this was one I picked up a few weeks ago. If you don't follow rally racing, then you need to understand that this is purely racing against the clock on linear courses. You don't see other cars and you're just trying to go as fast as possible and get the best time. Each rally is several stages (4-5 in this game, many more in real life) and the driver with the lowest overall time wins that rally.
Summary: I thought that it was a little strange that the game was opened, especially when the listing said the game was NEW. There was a note inside the package that said it was opened to make sure the game works. Just an FYI ... If the purchaser thinks he/she is buying something NEW, he/she would probably prefer to be the first to open his/her game.
Summary: I got this game since at the time dirt was not out for the ps3 yet and it's not a bad game, The graphics are not bad they look really good for a ps2 game & the in game play is good, If you looking for a really in depth rally game then i think this is not the game for you it's way to simple it's the kind of game you just put in to race and have fun with wean you don't have a lot of time on your hands to play a real simulation game over all buy this game it's simple and...
Summary: WRC is the best rally game I have played. The video segments are cool. There are many rallies, 5 stages pre rally. Some rallies are tough some aren't so, but the tracks can be a lot more realistic than in most games. In some places the track is barely wider than the car, unlike many other games. Physics are fair. Crash physics are pretty bad and can be a little frustrating when you try to save the car when on two wheels.
Summary: If you're looking for a rally racing simulator (like the Rally tracks in GTA3) - don't buy WRC. But if you're looking for a FUN racing game with just enough realism to keep it interesting, WRC can't be beat. This game is a blast, you race in 14 countries (5 stages in each), each one is unique and requires learning new skills to conquer.
Summary: Okay, maybe that is a bit much, but at least the cars can get damaged, unlike in Gran Turismo. Unfortunately, they seem to get damaged very easily. But, hey, that's the WRC for ya! After all, one guy in the WRC smoked an engine this year when he clipped a snow bank with the front of his car thus blocking the air flow to to the radiator with a mess of ice and snow. But, on to the game. First off, this game is presented exactly as you see it on the WRC TV coverage.
Summary: This game pulls you in and makes you feel as if you are in the WRC for real. This game is the actual WRC, unlike the token and inaccurate rally racing in GT3. From the co-drivers' pace notes, to the actual (pre 2004) rally scoring sytem, this game is just dead on. Even two years after release in the US, it is still the best WRC representative we have in the console world. If you love rallying, and this is still available, get it!
