"good, but not great"
3 stars"

The game was fun, easy to pick up and have some fun with, but lacked the depth of others in the series, I don't want to drive on tracks that have been changed to make the game more flowing, I want to drive the tracks they run through in the real event. The biggest omission is that lack of full events, there are 3 tracks per rally, regardless of difficulty level, I want the full 3 day event for every really, all in all, while it was fun it simply left me wanting a more in depth game.

"The best rally game EVER!!!"
5 stars"

I love this game. Its so easy to pick up play but difficult to put down especially when competing against other players in the online mode for the best time.

Visually the game looks awesome and the car handling is great. Is easy for the beginner to pick up but the expert championship will be a challenge even for the pro rally gamer (especially if you turn off all your driver aids). The random events on the tracks really spice up the gameplay as you don't know what to expect even when you have driven the track multiple times, and the Rallycross mode is a really fun addition to the game.

Overall I think this is an excellent rally game and the best in the WRC series.


Interactive events that affect game play: Unpredictability is the name of the game as you race across the world's most challenging terrains without knowing what's around the corner...a crash, a flood, a forest fire, tumbling mountain rocks...who knows? The 'events' change every time you play so get prepared to expect the unexpected just like the professionals...

  • Multi-car wheel-to-wheel action: Up to 8 cars on the same track, at the same time in the on-line Multi-car mode! This features 16 stunning, purpose built circuits that capture the best of every rally country. Go head-to head and smash the other cars off the track to win as you navigate not only the challenging terrains but the fierce competitors...

  • Smash & Crash- More Realistic Than Ever... On the edge and closer to reality than ever before, the new damage system means collisions are more satisfying as debris is strewn from the car. For the first time in WRC history the rally cars can sustain any inflicted crash and collision damage across the whole stage, with the handling changing to reflect this.

  • Real-life co-driver- Hear the Fear! The vastly improved co-driver signals now give players the feeling of a real human being guiding them through the challenging stages of every rally. Believable and convincing, the co-driver now reacts dynamically to the action, giving detailed, impassioned help and guidance through pace notes drawn up by a real rally champion. The co-driver is sensitive to the racing conditions: his voice changes according to the road surface and breakneck speed, conveying real emotions in both victory and defeat.

  • Stunning new audio-visual effects: The developers at Evolution Studios have worked their magic yet again - pushing PlayStation 2 even further to produce breathtaking graphics, sensational real-rally sounds and awesome new effects - the incredible deformable environments means you can crash into a wall and watch it collapse! This winning combination delivers players a sensation of increased speed that will leave them literally shaking on their sofas!

  • A completely new particle system: has also been added to WRC: Rally Evolution(wt) that generates dense smoke, fire and deep water - all of which affects visibility and the handling of the rally car - putting players out there on the edge.

  • Increased accessibility: Even more people can feel like a true World Rally pro through a range of new features. A progressive championship mode starts with easier stages first. Optional driver aids mean the car can be tuned depending on players' ability and redesigned tracks let beginners power slide around corners with ease so the thrill of rallying can be captured and enjoyed whatever your level.
