In WRC 4 you have less cars than in 3. In 4 you have the WRC, WRC 2, WRC 3 & Junior WRC cars. In WRC 3 you have those plus 70's/80's/90/s cars and other. The tracks/roads are nowhere near as good as in WRC 3 nor do you have head to head stages. The cars in WRC 4 are 'wooden' to drive with very little 'movement' and there is just simply the rallies, nothing else to entertain you.
I am not one of these people who say "Well of course Richard Burns Rally has never been bettered!" because that is simply not true imo, but out of WRC 4 and WRC 3, I would buy 3 every single time
-The cars sound better, especially the Fiestas. Every car sounds realisitic to what we can expect in a game.
-The graphics have improved considerabley, i put in WRC 2010 just as a reminder and i couldnt believe the contrast, WRC 4 has upped it's game in this category.
-The time of day choice is certainly an improvement and makes it more enjoyable, as is the rain effects in WalesGB.
-Career mode is what it should be for a WRC brand game, the road to glory attempt last year was poor and a cheap attempt at copying DiRT. This one makes you want to keep progressing through each class and is engaging.
-The game achievements are alot better, and can be achieved through general playing without going to far out of the way.
-The Home screen menu make it feel much more like Rally game, agian last years 'comic graphics'.
-Handling is much better, in my opinion a little more tricky but more realistic. Still not a 'sim' but close enough to it.
-This isnt Milestone's fault, but the range of cars is disappointing. Ford and Citroen dominate the 'big' cars. The new hyundai test car is promising, but you really only have 5 WRC cars, which is disappointing, but the developers cannot add rally cars not even in the real life series.
-The next game has GOT to include night time stages like real life. Speeding through a forest in Wales, pitcg black at 90 mph with only headlights on to show the way would be a brilliant thrill and challenge.
-Although the graphics are progressing, theyre no where near the top end games..like Forsa, F1 etc.
All in all, this game will never please some. People will complain about the graphics, yet in the same rant talk about how much better RBR was, even though it's graphics were poor. Long gone are the days when rally games dominated platforms, WRC is a niche market, still a big market out there, but they cannot make a COMPLETE sim rally game as they need to appeal to a slightly wider market.
All rally fans must buy this, i hope i've put across the vast improvements from WRC 2010 and 2. It still has a wile to go, but keeping in mind WRC is such a niche audience these days, it is brilliant.
But just driving the cars in the game as it is now is completely satisfying. The handling is vastly improved and very user-friendly (not nearly as demanding as Dirt 3) and the difficulty level is more nearly adjustable to suit your ability than other games. It feels very good. I do find the career set-up a bit limiting and confusing - but I haven't finished the game yet: There don't seem to be any rewards or unlock-able cars etc. The lack of personnel on the winning podium is a little strange. There is little choice in what you race: and I can't understand why my WRC3 event level is locked!
In short - if you want to play a reasonably real-world game, this'll do nicely!
For me there's not enough variation in the stages, they all seem to be pretty samey, most start with a "3 left", and a "hairpin left" tends to be followed by a "hairpin right" etc etc. The stages are nothing like their real life counterparts... Sweet Lamb on Rally GB Wales is very disappointing, no long descent down to the Bowl and no water splash! Still actual gameplay is ok, am progressing thru my career nicely but it does seem a little bit too easy to do well, better change the difficulty! One thing that i do find frustrating is the fact that quite a few stages are at dawn or dusk.... but you've no headlights! Which a real rally car would have on at this time of day, which makes seeing the track very hard and just winds me up.
The range of cars is limited but thats down to the Regulations of the current WRC, gone are the days of Evos and Imprezas doing battle with GT4s and Escort Cosworths. Shame really!!!
Still its an enjoyable enough game and worth buying at the current price.
