Still a great game

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: I got the game a week ago and haven't been able to take it out yet. It does lack some elements, but the tracks are great and challenging, great view changes and replay's, you get all the 2002 WRC cars and drivers (less Mcrae/Grist) great intro video's. Downside is long loading time between stages, a little to be left desired as far as graphics, more tuning options would be nice and some type of reward or points systems to fix and/or upgrade the car like(GT3).
Summary: Finally the satisfaction of driving a WRC car. Graphics and framerate are great. But the game falls short on realism (it's an arcade game rather than a simulation) and it is way too easy... Replay value is low, so rent it unless you are a huge WRC fan!
Summary: Played this at the WRC race in Great Britain this past Novemeber. What an awesome game-especially for rally enthustiasts! Tease the Sony people at the race why it was delayed for sale in the US 'cause they felt there wasn't the player base in the US......I think they are dead wrong...
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 enjoyed Gran Turismo 3 yet wished for more rally racing, THIS is the game you want. I've played the PAL version and can attest to the level of realism. Even in two player mode, the machine cannot be slowed. You will be able to tell the difference in surfaces and you -will- be challenged to keep yor car moving. In a word, awesome!
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.
