Don't judge it by the demo.,
This review is from: WRC - FIA World Rally Championship (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
In the same way you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, you shouldn't judge this game by the demo. The tracks in the demo really aren't too amazing and I imagine most people played it with the assists, played the demo once and thought "meh" and not bothered with it and went back to the more casual DiRT 2. That's what I did, and after picking up this game, I'm glad that I made my purchase
It's a great Rally game. Sure the actual Rally stages in the game don't necessarily represent the countries actual rally in real life but the track selection is good, as is the car selection. The handling, while perhaps different to those used to the Colin Mcrae games, is very solid once you get the hang of it, and its nice the 2WD and 4WD cars handle quite differently. The game has a very lengthy career mode where you can create your own team complete with colors and liveries. It's not quite GRID customization but is is still quite good.The graphics are pretty superb, those saying "OMG WORSE THAN PS2 SRSLY" need to actually go back and play one, this is miles better. Not up with the great racing games of the current gen but very good none the less.
My only gripes with this game are that the co-driver can some times get annoying (you can choose between a man and a woman), the damaging model is inconsistent, for example you could hit a tree at full speed and take no damage but scrape a barrier and damage a wheel, and there are no weather effects at all.
Overall though, it's a very solid Rally game and anyone who enjoyed the old Colin Mcrae or WRC games should give it a try.

I'll check this out. I wonder how many reviews were based on the demo? Sounds like they goofed by releasing a demo that didn't do the game justice.
