Live the Official WRC Experience
The Unique Official WRC Game!
The official game of the WRC is back, fully updated to the contents of the 2011 Official Championship and with brand-new contents and game modes! The real excitement of drifts, jumps, handbrakes and also crashes returns on PC!
Enjoy all the official contents from the 2012 FIA World Rally Championship, including all the main teams, cars, locations and a lot of exclusive contents, like the Rallye Monte-Carlo and Volkswagen Polo R WRC test car!
Improved Graphic Quality:
In WRC 3 all the graphic aspects have been completely reworked to give the player the best experience in a Rally Game. Thanks to the new Spikengine new lighting effects, shadows, particle effects will be featured in the game to offer the maximum level of realism to each player. And pay attention to the new surfaces and the weather conditions!
Brand New Career Mode:
The largest and funniest section of WRC 3. It is a mix of racing gameplay and management elements where the player customizes cars and team increasing the sense of ree" playability mixing all with a common "narrative" thread an adventure around the world! Career Mode also comes with brand new Challenges System in which players will face different challenges based on hitting targets or performing particular special manoeuvres!
The new engine allows a different management of in game sounds and effects. All the cars have been live recorded also with on board microphones to catch all the real effects heard by the drivers. For each country (EFIGS) a professional actor have been appointed to perform peace notes given by a real co-driver to guarantee a real on board environment to the player.
The game will include an accurate and revamped physics model allowing players to feel the same emotions of a driver racing a real WRC car. Although car behavior on track is really close to reality and gives experienced users a very satisfying feeling, WRC 3 offers a set of driving helps (Auto-Brake, Auto-Transmission, Braking Assistance, Stability Help and Physical damage level) that allows beginners to perform a complete Special Stage and enjoy the game without too many difficulties.
Stay tuned, more locations and cars are coming soon!
Currently the best Rallye gameKradath | July 14, 2013 | See all Kradath's reviews »
As the Dirt series diverted away from the core rallye gameplay I was on the lookout for an alternative. At first I thought there wasn't actually any to the dirt series, until I found this one.
It not only covers all the current WRC cars and drivers, but the atmosphere is simply great, the cars handle good. There are some minor issues with it like the lack of staggered starts, which are quite important, night races or changeable weather conditions.
Nevertheless, there currently is no better racing game and if they improve upon this title in WRC4 the series will flourish even more in the future.

Not perfect, but a good alternative to DiRTrossa14 | April 17, 2013 | See all rossa14's reviews »
Do you like rally games, but think the DiRT series isn't quite what you are looking for these days? Well this game might be for you.
I played the first WRC from these guys and at that time you could tell they were fairly new to this type of game; as a whole, there wasn't much there to get excited about. Fast forward to WRC3 and they are now doing quite a good job at hitting the sweet spot for what makes a good rally game (in terms of how it plays [Car physics, ect...]). The graphics still aren't amazing, but are far from what you could call terrible; at the same time though, the engine seems to hold up well without any major issues or slowdowns. The audio is also quite good, ranging from the music in the menus and loading screens, down to the pace notes (which by the way can be tuned to be called out later or earlier than normal depending on preference).
Overall, it's not bad for a developer that mostly does motorbike games, and it's a game that does a good job of recreating the official FIA championship as it stands today. Well worth checking out for rally fans.
Why Not Get DiRT 3 Instead?Tubbzie | March 31, 2013 | See all Tubbzie's reviews »
I decided to give this game it's Metacritic score purely because I thought that although it didn't deserve higher, it certainly doesn't deserve lower. Pound for pound, it doesn't stack up against DiRT 3 in pretty much any area of play; graphics, audio, style, level design, control, overall DiRT 3 is just more of a solid game. That doesn't mean there isn't anything here though - if you aren't interested in all the drift-styled gymkhana that DiRT 3 shoves in your face rather unwillingly, and are looking for a 'true rallying game' then this is the closest you're going to find out of all the modern 'rallying' thoroughbred games. The control scheme is competent and the career mode, if sometimes tantalizingly basic, and entertaining play. Overall, if you're looking a for the overall rally experience, head over to DiRT 3 for more bang for you buck - but if you're looking for something deeper, maybe a true representation of hurtling through Finland at 80mph half an inch away from the nearest treeline, then this is the closest thing you can buy this side of 2009.
A good arcade rally gameLekes | Feb. 17, 2013 | See all Lekes's reviews »
Career mode is quite fun and I never got tired of it unlike in previous WRC games, which were a bit too long sometimes. Music is surprisingly great and match the game's atmosphere as well as all the sounds. On the other hand, tracks are pretty bad. First of all they are all pretty much the same length. Second, each country has only 2 original tracks with swapped direction or different sections. Third, there are way too many hairpins and conveniently placed crap around hard corners. Fourth, notepaces could use some work as it's pretty common that a corner is slighty different than you're being told. Sometimes even by 2 degrees. All in all this is a very good game for rally fans and good for the rest.
