Love the graphics, love the cars, love the normally-realistic-yet-sometimes-crazy physics, love how the game is perfectly playable with a keyboard, love the simple and precise menus, love the multiplayer... can't wait for it to populate. Single player races are great but online experience is fantastic!

9.5/would purchase again.

EDIT n. 1. After one week, more than 15 hours spent in-game and many, many, MANY wrecked cars later I still find this game funny as hell. Yet, I have to admit it's not perfect. First of all, the medal-system is quite bad designed; the only thing that's important (to unblock new cars and tracks) is getting the gold medal, whilst arriving in second, third or last place makes absolutely no difference for the player: you just lose in all three cases. Then, the multiplayer system broke down after 12 hours since the game had been published so I could not see it getting populated (I could not see it at all, since it's impossible to enter it).

8.5/10 would still purchase again.

EDIT n. 2. Physics are totally f*cked, audio is dead, one achievement acts like it's broken, developers totally ignore everything and everyone, everywhere. What a waste.

7/10 good game but with lots of flaws (also devs are bad and they should feel bad)

Well...I can see different comments on this game. Some say it's brilliant while the others think it's stupid.

The truth is, all of them are right. The game is simple but of great fun. Unlike any other games from Milestone, This game is VERY Exciting. Milestone definately found a right path to catch up the pace of Codemasters Racing. I would like to say that the graphics and physics of this game are even too much for an arcade racing game. And you can even choose the gamemode to fit your own appetite. So it's a brilliant game.

However, there actually are some terrible ideas in this game. For example, the typical-Milestone-s&%tdesigned interface and Online games which only works fine in some specific regions. I won't list power-ups in this category because IT'S A GAME. IT'S BORN TO BE FUN. So if you are some kind of SERIOUS RACER, JUST GO AWAY. it's not a good game for you.

WRC Powerslide is a decent arcade style game that is a nice change from the normal more simulation type rally games. It can be enjoyed by people who want more of an arcade type game with power up and people who want more realistic gameplay by disabling power ups.

Pros:

Heaps of variety with stages and locations.
Heaps of unlockable cars (3 different classes) all with tons of different liveries and and a range of manufactures.
Decently long single player.
Surprisingly good damage system (Cosmetic Only) I wasn't expecting any damage system.
Stages are a decent length. The ones I've played have been at least 3 mins.
Stages and cars look great and are done to a high standard.

Cons:

Disabling power ups also disables collisions (with other cars).
Car sounds aren't the best (they may sound better with the better cars. I haven't unlocked many yet)
Haven't been able to try multiplayer yet (game only came out Today)

I felt in love with this game when I saw the trailer. I bought it ... best decision ever. Do you like fast-paced / arcade style racing games? Well this one is for you! Can't wait to try it with friends ^_^. There are few racing titles that got my atention like WRC Powerslide and they are as follows: Blur, Trackmania series, Dirt 3 and NFS HP. If you enjoyed them as well, I strongly recommend you try WRC Powerslide. See you on the track!
Race on! 10/10 (for being arcade/ and somehow old-school).

+ The isometric camera gives a good overview
+ Powerups (even if they are lame)
+ Pick up and play arcade racing

- Requires friends/people to show its true potential; AI doesn't do it justice
- Unlocking stages isn't fun or rewarding and takes too long
- You play in the same type of levels way too often; needs more variety much sooner to keep it interesting

Tip: play Blur instead (if you can still get your hands on it)

[Rating: 65/100]
