I would only recommend this game to people who are fans of the WRC, because let's face it, it's the latest and only official product we have in the gaming market right now based on the 2013 season.

However, if I wasn't an avid fan of the WRC, I would avoid this game like the plague. The physics are almost wooden, the visuals fall way short of what a game of this age should live up to, the track design is boring, and on many stages the devs have just receycled a lot of the road sections because of the circuit (lazy) design of each event, the sounds are horrid and contained, and the whole experience is just flat.

The career mode has been improved, and it's the mode I have played the most. However, if you're looking for longevity then the multiplayer won't give you much of that, because it's likely to not even work for a lot of people. You can create an account for it, but after a week, the chances are that the game will tell you that you don't have an account any more, and that you'll have to create a new one.

I've created a new account 5 times now, and I got hit with the same message this morning, so no more for me.

Terrible effort of a game. It may have been an acceptable effort in 2008, but not late 2013.

Graphics arent very good
I use a steering wheel and the force feedback is all wrong
You cant change controls while racing. So if you need to and your in career you either have to wait until the end or throw away the race and then you cant recomplete it
If you just bump a fence or something like that it pulls the whole car around
All the stages within a rally look exactly the same. If you go stage 1 and then stage 2 you will find that they have the same corners which makes for really boring gameplay
I love the WRC but they deffiently should get someone of better quality to make their game
Ive played online free to play games that are better quality then this

WRC 4 FIA World Rally Championship manages to take my favorite racing discipline and make it boring. WOW.

Cons:
►Dated graphics. It looks like they made poor use of a free/open source graphics engine such like Ogre3D. The skyboxes in particular look HORRIBLE. At the start of each race I see white particles floating around that look like snow. Weird.
►The game is WAY too easy. I did 2 rallies and didn't lose one stage. I was always some 20 seconds ahead. Boring.
►Co driver has a droning like quality that does not instill excitement.
►Physics are too forgiving which makes the game even easier and more boring.
►No car selection to start. The beginner car is not very interesting.
►Boring music.
►Boring menus.

Pros:
I can't think of one area where the game really shines. Honestly Colin McRae Rally 2.0 for the Gameboy Advance is funner than this. XD

After a year of the release, It has too many bugs, it hangs sometimes. Gameplay is boring, graphics are not good and in some rallies you confuse, not knowing where the road continues.
Unluckily this is the only game that recreates the real world rally but this developer shouldn`t have the license. They are not good enough and they don`t mind to improve the game.

Please do not buy this game, If you respect yourself do not buy it, I can't even begin to list how many flaws it has, it is without a doubt a disgrace to the WRC and to Rallying in general, even if it was free this game would be expensive, at $40 it is an insult, it has sucked since WRC 2010 and it still does, please WRC, give the license to somene else.

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.
