Conclusion: My final verdict is that Quake 2 has stood well against the test of time, and while it is only available with Quake 4 is still worth playing for hours on end. The playability may seem to wane once the game is complete but when your looking for some mindless fun its worth turning on if only to listen to the sound of bodies bursting into pieces.
Summary: " WRC 2 " goes a decent way towards improving upon the first game. It’s rare that I say this after two games, but I’m very willing to wait another year for Milestone to really nail it. If they keep going at the same trajectory, then I have high hopes for next year’s game, although given the history of the developer, I wouldn’t be surprised if it still suffered from a massive shortage of personality.
Conclusion: WRC 2 is certainly fun for a few hours, but after that point you will have seen pretty much everything that the game has to offer and repetition will quickly set in. A step in the right direction but still in need of plenty more work under the hood in order to become a true racing machine.
Excerpt: WRC 2 fails to make many improvements on the first World Rally Championship game. It doesn't address many of the original game's flaws and adds very little new content, except for updating the cars and drivers to the 2011 WRC season. The car handling, visual detail, and game modes are all largely unchanged, resulting in a game that feels like a missed opportunity rather than a successful sequel.
Pros: Super Special Stages and Group B are welcome additions, Solid car handling, Rally Academy is a good way to introduce novices to the sport
Cons: Many issues from previous game haven't been addressed, Poor environmental graphics, Road to WRC is almost completely unchanged, Majority of the stages are the same as last year's
Excerpt: Last year's WRC from Milestone was a so-so 6/10 effort , sorely lacking in presentation values while delivering some decent sim racing. This year's title makes some much needed tweaks to the difficulty, and attempts to improve the visuals, but the end result is still something that feels under par compared to the competition. Structurally, WRC 2 is similar to WRC 1.
Conclusion: The menu has a weird option where you can start a new game by pressing X just after you've loaded your save game This overwrites the original and leaves your back at stage 1-1 This happened to me once and it will not make you happy I made a backup after every "session" To avoid to much stress set a goal of how much 2 do in a certain “session” e.g.
