Avoid like the plague
As a WRC fan i was entirely disappointed with this game. There are three main issues and many smaller problems. Firstly the car handling is extremely unrealistic, not differing between road surfaces. It appears as though no research has been done into how the real cars behave which is truly an insult to every rally fan who will buy this expecting so much more. Secondly the graphics make the game seem like playing on the PS2, lacking texture detail tremendously. The third major issue involves the stages. Its as if your driving on a non-descipt road in a generic landscape, not reflecting the environment and terrain of the real events. The road surface feels completely smooth with no detail like pot-holes and uneven patches. The complete lack of detail in the surrounding environment is shocking and looks dull. Definitely not what was promised. If you want a solid racer get F1 2010 or wait for GT5. Rally fans be warned. Avoid this at all cost. Not worth the money or your time by a long way.
