Summary: Best rally game on the PSP. Missing some key features like manual shifting and vehicle repair options but still an excellent game. Fast framerate and outstanding graphics for a hand-held. Some have complained about the steering with the analog nub, it is a challenge at first but with practice it is the best option.
Summary: I should start by saying that I prefer racing simulations to arcade style games. From this perspective, WRC starts out looking good enough - the graphics are excellent, and car physics seem reasonable. However, the steering is overly sensitive. (Yes, even after calibrating the joystick at the PSP system information screen.) If there were a steering sensitivity option, WRC would be just about perfect. Without it, control is difficult and the racing can be frustrating.
Summary: This game is WAY more fast-paced than it's contemporaries like "Sega Revo Rally", but I find that the handling of the vehicles is a bit messy. Granted it IS a Rally Race, but still... If you happen to be an avid Rally Car fan, then this game is for you. Graphics: 8/10 Sound: 6/10 Realisim: 9/10 Overall Game Satisfation: 7.5 H A P P Y G A M I N G ! ! !
Excellent off-road racing for novices to expert level players

Summary: The graphics on this racer are incredible for a PSP game, with lots of detail features like fire extenguishers at the start line. The cars show visual damage from any wrecks you may encounter, though at novice levels I don't feel any adverse handling effects. Rain can vary from a soft drizzle to a driving downpour. Similarly, blizzard conditions can reduce visibility, while snow, ice, and mud can all affect handling in different ways.
Summary: This game is probably one of the better racing games available for the PSP. It is very underrated. The physiques are much greater than most racing games available for the PSP, plus the stop doesnt end. although some Maps may get frustrating at times, considering the fast speeds, and unlimited amounts of turns and jumps you forget how annoying some things may get. this is a fun game, and never does get boring.
Summary: Great graffics, Great visual damage, Good physics, Good sound BUT NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!!NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPTION!! Enough said, How can we get any joy out of a RALLY game with NO MT option?
Excerpt: With all the racing games out there, there aren't many that still tackle the Rally circuit, and perhaps none are as efficient and fun as World Rally Championship, which has now been brought to your PSP! As has been successful in other games, WRC has the great "ghost car" system to indicate how well/poorly you're doing, and it also makes you feel as though you're racing an opponent when doing Time Trials which is welcome.
