A GREAT GAME but a step in the wrong direction,
This review is from: WRC 2 - FIA World Rally Championship 2011 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
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 :(
