WRC Review

"sandtigerbellatore", Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, I feel I paid just the right price for this game; I was able to purchase WRC for only $19.99. My main comparison of this game is with GT3, which, while it doesn't have much for rally races, it far surpasses WRC on realism, both car handling and exterior detail as well as track detail are much better on GT3.

HORRIBLE experience

  • Summary: First of all, I watch a lot of WRC racing, I'm a big fan. The game has its high-points: realistic sound, official licensing, and plenty of tracks. But the cars handle COMPLETELY unrealistically. To give you an idea, I brought the car to a complete stop, but my car still mysteriously floated a few inches in whichever direction. Even on asphalt! The car powerslides with the gentlest turn of the wheel!

I can't wait for V-Rally 3 and Colin Mcrae 3

  • Summary: ...It's not a bad game.In fact it's incredibly fast and handles the way a good rally game should. I just have a few personal problems with this game. First of all,there is no service area like in Colin Mcrae or V-Rally.You can totaly trash your car and it will be fine for the next stage.Ridiculous.

Not for the serious.

  • Summary: I'm not a heavy gamer, but I've always enjoyed watching motorsport and as such I keep one eye on the motorsport genre of computer games. I've played most of the Colin McRae games and despaired at the way Codemasters progressively ruined the handling and physics throughout the series and concentrated more on such pointless things as more realistic realistic damage and animated spectators. What the game also lacked from the beginning of the series was decent pace notes.

A Bit Of A Mud-dle?

14 February 2006
  • Excerpt: "...to boot. Released back in 2001, WRC is one of the PS2's elder statesmen - indeed, it was perhaps the first major rally game to appear on the format. The emphasis is very much on arcade accessibility; you'll not need to spend time fiddling with car settings or even worry about excess handling characteristics such as oversteer - just follow the co-drivers instructions and avoid crashing! As well as the usual Single Race and Time Trial modes that ...
  • Pros: High - quality visuals, good presentation, fun and undemanding, licenses
  • Cons: Championship is ridiculously easy, slow compared to other racers, uninspiring design

Not as good as I hoped

Duncan McDonald "Dunk", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This game is the best rally game around but some of it doesn't make sense. For example, the so-called career mode is not that good as it is really called the Pro Driver Challenge and you just complete goal after goal on a "career ladder". This may not sound bad but then you realise that you only get to do the last stage of every raly.

  • Excerpt: hoy os hablo de un juego de rallys como tantos otros, la verdad es un buen juego para que nos vamos a engañar, y la verdad es que a mi para un rato me gusta, el problema es que se me acaba haciendo pesado, tengo en la punta de la nariz que hay que dedicarle muchas horas, demasiadas para mi gusto.
  • Pros: si te gustan los rallys es un gran juego
  • Cons: a mi personalmente se ma hacen muy pesados .
