WRC 2-A Real Rally Title,
This review is from: WRC 2 - FIA World Rally Championship 2011 (PS3) (Video Game)
First of all I'd like to put things straight, a lot of 'professional' reviewers are saying this game is average,not better than WRC 1 & not as good as the DIRT series. I have to say I disagree, I nearly didn't buy this game because of all the negative reviews but I'm glad I did because it is brilliant. Milestone & Black Bean have a smaller budget than Codemasters, I agree, but the game they have produced feels like they've done the best possible job they can with the resources they had available. This game is so much BETTER than last year's edition & that was good, the graphics have been improved massively in my opinion, not as good as other racing games but who cares? This game has it's own style & sticks too it & it works, it really does. Everything else has been improved too, the amount of cars has been increased, the engine sounds are a lot more realistic & very true to their real-life counterparts, & although a lot of the stages are from last years game, they look a lot different because of the graphics upgrades, alot more detail. The 'Road To The WRC' mode has also been improved & made alot better, you can now hire office staff to deal with contracts/sponsors & mechanics who can develop different parts for your cars. The events are alot more structured & easier to follow, the main mode is definitely the best mode. So lots of different surface types which all make the car handle differently, handling is 10x better than last time & the ability to do detailed setups or choose a preset is excellent. A top-notch game, its the only 1 out there but boy is it a good 1. Buy it & see for yourself.
