    WRC 7 was genuinely great. Only thing which needed improving was the co-driver, who sounded stunted and ridiculous. It still has some of the best track design I've ever seen in a racing game.

    Optimistic for this!

    I really enjoyed 6 when it was GWG, but I hope WRC8 is not as arcadey.

    The stages were just to flat, didn't feel like there were any bumps - all the surfaces felt the same grip wise.

    Looks good. I keep meaning to pick up Dirt Rally 2.0 but maybe I'll try this instead.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 has had some pretty decent discounts lately, and while I haven't tried a WRC game since 5, I'd still suggest picking up DR2.0 instead IF you loved DiRT Rally and at least liked DiRT 4. Rally 2.0 feels like both those games rolled together in one big comfortable blanket. I'm not too happy about the multiple season passes, but I'll buy 'em anyway because more DR is always good.

    Some of those comments above do make me want to try a newer WRC game though. Perhaps in due time.
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    A good rally game not sold to me in chunks is all I long for, this might just be it.

    Aren't all of those cars in V-Rally 4? Guess they've saved some money on licensing different vehicles?
    I can haz achievement?

    It has good and bad sides. The 'roads' on some of the races are just as wide as your car and in nightraces with rain you cant see where the road is. I have 65 inch with HDR and Xbox X and I cant see road from rocks and stuff and its just no fun at all. With a bit wider roads it could have been good fun.

    In slow speed, like 15 miles the car behaves like its doing 50 miles and the car can actually jump and flip over in the air on a cone in this speed.......
    Wheel and controller was way off in setting for me.

    It has some good tracks where you really can make the car fly and if you like a pretty hard challenge you might enjoy most of the game.

    Well after a few more hours I find that the stupid narrow roads just ruins the game and I would not recommend this for anyone but very hardcore players. What a waste....

    Seems very good from the trailers... I may wait for the sales for this game

    Don't want to spend £50 and still have WRC 6 to start and finish
