Although some stages look better than others, it mainly gives top notch graphics in the palm of your hand. There are a few drops in framerate in the Rally d'Italia but apart from that, it runs quite nice nicely and pushes the hardware to give decent graphics. Instances of characters performing the same animations next to each other and not exactly extreme weather, it’s not raining or snowing enough for me in-game, really shouldn’t ruin your game too much.
The handling of the car is more realistic than arcade, which may take some time to get used to and requiring the user to use the break and the hand break to make it round sharp corners. This is part of the fun.
Underestimating a corner may mean that you under or over steer and may cause you to go over and out of the road areas. This is where you would normal use something like a “replace” to put the car back into the center of the road, this is where WRC has their interesting “rewind” style feature where you can rewind your moves and then start before it was messed up to take that corner again, and save time on the important clock.
Loading times are the biggest issue, loading between races can seem like a long time, but even short loading for the service areas takes a little too long.
Although there is a quick mode, which will randomly choose a car and a stage – good for handing to your friends to check out the game, most of the time you’ll be using career mode. Although let down with an uninspired interface featuring emails from various characters, you’ll not be spending too much time here, it’s really in the race that we should be caring about.
Hopefully this balanced review can help your choice of picking this up. I’ve put plenty of time on this since I go this a few weeks ago
