So many bad reviews for the old wrc and now it looks like this is going the same way. Well I enjoy WRC 2011 & even more so WRC 2010 from last year , enjoying them over any of the new dirts as far as single player career goes. Yes dirt looks mint and is good online but its arcade to the max and wrc on hard mode and in manual gears is way more like real rally .

My only problem with wrc 2 is that it trys to be more like dirt [faster and abit arcady] but its still a better rally experience than the dirt games [And I do love dirt games , but lets be honest they are very easy to play and so non simulation is laughable]. I personaly wish they had made WRC2 even more heavy and realistic than wrc 2010 . Then we might of been a bit more near the good old Richard Burns rally which is still to be beaten in realism over any rally game to date .

If I had to choose between wrc 2010 or 2011 though I would have to choose 2010 cos they have tryed to make 2011 to quick [like every other game thats released these days,Quick to me means cheap and tacky feeling with no real reality or weight to the gameplay]. Also nearly all the tracks are the same as 2010 and since to me that drives at a more enjoyable and realistic pace I woud get last years vesion cos WRC 2011 is a step backwards to me :(

The game installed on win7 64 with only 1 glitch which was the direct x 9c didnt install, but I was still able to play the game, so no worries there.
I love driving games, especially Rally games and have for nearly 10 years been searching for a game that beats RBR for realism and I guess I will have to keep waiting. I do not like the dirt games, far too arcadey)

The game itself is enjoyable to play. I use a logitech G25 and the FF is quite good, not too harsh (no tuning option for it though), but I was still left feeling that the car was floating as opposed to being in contact with the road surface. I feel the car physics are close to RBR, but considering that game is so old now I feel the game devlopers could of spent more time really gettng the handling spot on, as really this is what makes or brakes a driving game. For example the Mk 1 escort is so unrealistic its beyond a joke, the 1600 cars require little in the way of braking, but are fun too drive. Its not perfect but its ok.

I have played the game for several hours and I have had a fair amount of fun, the car deformation is very good, the length of the stages is ok, would of prefered actual copies of the stages they are supposed to represent. The car models ar nice, the stages look ok, but appear to suffer from a lack of draw distance as with my high end rig, the grass is being drawn as I approach, which makes it difficult to really concentrate on hitting the right lines etc.

Mt biggest gripe with the game apart from the handling is the sound. Some of the cars sound good, oters are terrible. Example is the Mk1 escort, sounds terrible and almost like it has anit-lag!

Being the offical FIA game I was expecting something half decent like the offical F1 games. All I can say is ouch. Handing is awfal, graphics like being on a playstaion again and the co-driver voices... dont ask. If I could return it I would, glad I only paid under £9.

firstly some of the negative reviews are very poor, "driver san francisco " is hardly a rally game to compare it with, "only 3 makes of car" when did you last watch the real WRC?. "stages the same as WRC1", bit like the real thing that. Anyway I installed the game, it works fine, it looks fine, it represents the what WRC is all about. I dont think its as arcadey as DIRT, and I have had them, Colin McCrae was great but because of the rights he was the only correct car/name and if you dont win he does. I reckon its really good and it follows WRC rules, and by playing with settings you can set it up so you get a good challenge, that way when you win it feels really good. only 4 stars though cos no game yet has deserved 5.

I'm no stranger to driving games, it's all I use, and mainly the more serious stuff and not 100% arcade stuff like NFS etc. Bearing in mind that my PC was built and cost me £1400 in bits, it does run anything I throw at it. I disliked the demo for the first game so much I didn't even consider this as an option.

What an error on my part. I have RBR, Dirt2 and 3. WRC2 reminds me of RBR very much. You just can't thrash around everywhere as many of the tracks are technical in nature. Only RBR has more technical tracks and the amazing work done by Kaz in GT5 isn't as rewarding to drive flat out as the Rally courses are too wide. This puts Dirt3 to shame tbh. I'm unlikely to keep that game now I have WRC2. This is the shock of the year, so well done to Black Bean/Milestone.

At present the only thing I can fault is. No night driving. The cars in tarmac trim don't have as low n wide stance if the real life cars. But the car set up changes more than makes up for that. You can get a car handling exactly to match ur style with ease. Sure the gfx do not beat Dirt 3, but to a petrol head who only owns car games that's how it should be. RBR is still going strong due to the experience, not top-notch gfx.

I understand from other reviews that the tracks have changed little. But with bowed surfaces, camber changes, jumps, bumps and some nasty chicanes and uneven hairpins WRC2 packs a serious punch. The WRC2 tracks are quite narrow, at times only 2 or 3 widths of your car. Land funny, charge around with undue attention and you'll be in trouble! End of! Even how you leave the ground matters, an awesome Rally title.

Best news? Monte-Carlo returned to WRC in 2012 so it'll be cool to skim those walls in October when WRC3 lands.
