There something special about a good rally game. This game is no DiRT but it stands on its own merits and with all this nonsense about GFWL breaking my copy of DiRT 2 (and being removed from steam) Showdown being rather.. not what I want. This stands as a good substitute.

- Has an interesting career mode, taking contracts and such.
- Persistant damage between races which I found to give a subtle and unique sense of immersion
- Great audio from engine sounds to co-pilot voicework

Something tells me this series has more popularity in other countries.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll get back to pretending I'm not pacing around the living room in unabated anticipation waiting for a DiRT 4 annoucement.

For my (as casual rally ganre game player) this was pretty nice experience within one complete career mode - cars, courses, audio and career was really nice and fun to play through, but reading through others reviews seems like I am one of few people who like this game, interesting. ^^ However, I can recommend this, I liked it!

If you're here looking for Dirt 2/3, it wont be like that. It kind of reminds me of Dirt 1. Back to the roots of what rally is all about. Graphics are a bit dated, but the game as a whole is pretty awesome. I recommend it to any rally fan!

A couple bugs that need to be fixed, but other that this is a pretty solid racing game. Very similar to Dirt 3. 7.5/10

I thought I was going to be very disappointed with this game when I first ran it but how wrong could I have been. It is simply a blast to play. Graphics are excellent. Cars drive really well. I did have to load a MOD to improve the feedback a little bit from the standard default settings to give the wheel a bit more feeling. The only draw back I can see at the moment is that there is no online game play - or I have yet to find it? Such an improvement on WRC which failed for me in all aspects of game play, graphics and wheel support. Give it a 8 out of 10 overall.

Rally is my favorite form of racing/competition and gotta say I'm very surprised how good WRC4 actually is, I played WRC3 and didnt like it much, but this is a huge improvement. The driving feel is awesome, the cars react how they should. The stages are simply amazing, they can be difficult and tight but that's what I love of rally racing. Multiplayer is great fun, I can only hope it keeps a good healthy community.

Comparing this to Codemasters rally titles:

Handling: WRC 4
Stages: WRC 4
Sound: DiRT 2/3
Graphics: DiRT 2/3

Codemasters take the sound and graphics department by far but gameplay is definitely better in WRC 4. I'm happy the official WRC titles made it to steam, totally worth the day 1 purchase.
