In WRC 4 you can tweak a little on your profile like name, number plate, co driver and driver to mention a few. The new additions is a step in the right direction and a welcome addition to WRC. Tweaks, setting and bits done, lets get racing! You start at the bottom and have to work your way up to the top, starting out in junior WRC. Like I said race on……and of we go……uhm….this is an improvement….but also a disappointment! This is not a new game at all, it is WRC 3 re-textured. This might be a bit harsh on my part but with all the new features and steps in the right direction it was a let down to be playing WRC3 with a face lift. Once you get over the re-textured WRC 3, it becomes a heap of fun and you really do feel like you are in the WRC season. Yes there is still some glitches and room for improvement, but comparing apples (WRC3) with apples (WRC4) this is a huge step forward for Milestone and the WRC series.

The realism is better and improved in WRC 4. It is really starting to move further away from the arcade feel and in the right direction of simulation. Everything does feel and look better and it makes WRC 4 a pleasure to play. I was disappointed to see that they took away the classic rally cars. The rallies do sometime feel like a bit of a repeat now and then, like some parts was just copied and pasted. WRC 4 comes in with a price tag of a AAA title but the improvements are not enough to make it a AAA for me and you really need to be a fan of the series to spend that money on it. The new features and improvements do make it much more appealing and Milestone and Big Ben interactive did listen to the gaming community and I think most will be pleased with WRC 4.

WRC 4 really delivered on the new features and improvements, but there is still room for improvement. If WRC 4’s leap forward is anything to go by then WRC 5 should be a master piece…we can only hope!
