Its the worst WRC game so far which is amazing how they managed to stear something up more than milestone did!!!

DONT BUY IT, you have been warned.

EDIT:
Okay i cooled off a little bit so i can maybe explain why you shouldn't buy that piece of crap.

The game basically is just another WRC 4 running on a different engine, but here is the tricky part... oh my god its bad, its properly bad, it have that too arcardy feeling and the driving is ****, the co-driver exactly like a co-driver you hear on a sega rally game, no joke.

Physics: bad
Graphics: bad
Rally school: joke
Overall: 1/10








Check the F matie writing in the back of the car. that's inappropriate


Edit: 12/10/2015
Check steam reviews as i only tried it on PS consoles.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/354160/ Just a heads up even though i don't have to but just read any of the few positive reviews and see for your self.

Dirt Rally if you want a good rally experience
RBR if you want a full rally sim
WRC Evolved is an overrated great rally game only on PS2 though

So please guys don't support this game, enough is enough.

How can it be just "another WRC 4" when it is made by a completely new developer team? Just stop your trolling. You were wrong with F1 2015 and you will be wrong here.

Other games have moved from developers and stayed basically the same in the past. It happens.

@OP I bought WRC 4 a while ago and I agree, the steering feels disconnected and unrealistic, it was a totally horrible game which I just couldn't get used to. If you are right in saying WRC 5 is similar, then I'd not recommend it to anyone.

There are some things that are better - when they work. A lot better, in fact. The driving model is a lot better, the physics of it feel better.

But that's only after you've opened your controller settings for the 4th time after starting the game and hoping they take in order to eliminate the built-in deadzone, or you've learned to cope with the AI just ramming you off the road after you've overtaken them through a chicane.

Apparently the netcode's a bugger-up too - haven't tried it for myself though.

But I digress.

Over all F1 2015 war horrible.
but when i see people like the one telling im wrong and the other team vvv on youtube releasing vids about wrc 5 saying that its the best he played in a while and way better than RBR, that pisses me off and i have to stand up and tell everyone whats going on.
after that if they buy the game its on them.

The screenshots on PS3,
I tried it on PS4, froze on me twice before loading the stage, BUT i ts the exact same game on both systems, just less FPS drops issues on PS4, on PS3 the FPS drops below 10 in most stages, unplayable.

Mod-edit: if you cannot control your anger, don't make such idiotic thread titles, changed it for you.

My idiotic thread title!... really, so me telling everyone not to buy this sh...T is a crappy title,
You kept editing my thread, you delete my screenshots, and you messed up the once you kept, and then for no reason changed my title...
What is idiotic again?

Game is supposed to be released on Steam in a few hours and still no demo. The demo was supposed to be available before release and there hasn't been any word regarding it. The general lack of information and no demo doesn't sit well.
I hope I'm wrong and its like Dirt 3 with a WRC license - as a dev described it. That would be good enough for me to pass some time. And hopefully Kylotonn actually supports the game post-release unlike Milestone. I guess we will see soon enough.

i spent a short time playing this game today, then gave up. for 2 reasons

1.) This game is extremely poorly optimized for PC. I can run Dirt Rally on the highest resolution for me (which is 1368x720 or something like that ... can't remember exactly), with all the setting around 'medium'. On this game, with the resolution set to 1280x720 and everything on the lowest settings possible, it's practically unplayable the framerate is so bad. looks like it's running at about 10 FPS! and the game doesn't even run full-screen at 1280x720 - these 2 black bars appear on either side of the screen.

2.) You're completely unable to map accelerate/brake to the right analog stick on a controller. WTF! I don't have a wheel, and for the last 15 years or so I've been playing racing games using the right analog stick for accelerate/brake. It feels terrible to me to use the triggers to drive instead of the analog stick. And why can't you map accelerate/brake to the right analog stick? Because it's used to control the frikken camera when you're driving, so it's locked to that function! what the hell? who moves the frikken camera around when they're driving!

unfortunately i can't comment on the physics or anything because i really didn't play this game for long due to the controller issues and terrible FPS i described above.

How the heck did you get it on Monday? I know that it had been sent to some, as PS3 version leaked on torrent sites on Monday. X360 a bit later, and PC version arrived on torrent sites late yesterday.

But the game it self was released today, in only three countries.
