    Sorted it, it's because wrc3 doesn't support 7.1 surround sound so had to change it in Realtek manager from 7.1 to stereo

    Yes, only stereo :( You would think a modern day game would have all the bells and whistles

    yeah it kinda sucks, but i still think the sound itself is really good though. Milestone is a small studio, i don't think they have the resources and cash to do things like 7.1 surround sound. all things considered, i think they've done a pretty good job with the game, i'm actually enjoying it more than Dirt 3!

    yeah reminded me quite a bit of Dirt 1, but better! don't really dig the Road to Glory mode that much, but it's so awesome being able to do a full WRC championship in the proper WRC cars :)
