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: 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!
Summary: I rented this game on Friday night and went and bought it Saturday morning. The graphics are very good,the camara angles and replays are excellent. The music and Rally previews make this game a must have for any Rally racing enthusiast. Try it you will love it.
Summary: I have two auto-related PS2 games that I consider loads of fun, one being Gran Turismo 3 and the other being WRC. I have not played WRC all that much yet, but so far I have had a ruddy good time playing this game. The graphics are very good, the replays outstanding. The playability and fun factors rate high with me.
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 is by FAR the best I have played so far. I would give it 6 stars if i could. Although my game library is not exactly ready to rival the Library of Congress, but from what racing games I have and have seen, there are no immediate rivals. If you are a huge fan of the WRC, as shown on the SPEED Channel, or only just interested in driving cars in ways never imagined by the Highway Patrol, this game is the closest thing to sitting in the driver's seat.
