I must admit, I have played all the WRC games of the franchise. This year, I am trying to find the major differences with last year's game and I do not see many. Yes the graphics look better, the sound has no more glitches, but that does not make me feel like it worths the full price that they ask for.
I like the fact that you can now choose the manufacturer that you want to race with. However, the races are always won by the same guy. This is true for all the different categories. I do not know if they pay for it or what, but that makes you feel like you race against only one person.
I really like the variety of the different circuits, but the 6 stages of each circuits are really similar.
The multiplayer is simply non-functional. I have tried several times to connect, without any success.
For those of you who want to know, this is an arcade racing game. I play it with my X360 controller and it feels ok. Apparently, if you have a wheel, it is useless.
If you already own WRC3, do not buy this one. If you do not, then it is a green light.

Well its the only new rally game so there it stands alone. How ever though it has great mechanics and better sounds than WRC3 it did let me down in areas. The multi-player is still dreadful not working most the time. Also for someone like me who uses a chair and wheel setup for a better experience this game is worthless there is ZERO feedback no matter what you do so you are better off sticking to a controller like a PS3 or Xbox than trying to use a wheel
Next Racing gameLasiu2 | Nov. 2, 2013 | See all Lasiu2's reviews »
WRC 4 is next racing game. I get bored of seeing them all around. But I can say that this game can easily compete with "need for speed". It doesnt mean it is better. It's just almost on same level. WRC is typical racing game. It doesnt have similar plot to NFS's plot. I love graphic a lot in this game. Its pleasing to eyes and really beautiful. I also like gameplay and interface. I would rate this game on 8/10. You can possibly ask "why?". Because I like when game has long, complex and detailed plot. It means it's good game for "just racing". But this game was made for "just racing". Thats why i recommend it for everyone who wants racing game but for me its only 8/10 ^^.
