WRC 7 FIA World Rally Championship
Top Critic Average
WRC 7 faithfully recreates a rally racing experience. The cars in the game almost directly match their real life counterparts. The locations are beautiful and the driving is challenging and fun. Some graphical hiccups and glitches held this one back.
While I enjoyed it a great deal, things need to change for WRC 8 next year. As it stands, WRC 7 is a solid game with “to the point” racing that works, but is growing stale. If you’ve been away from the series for a while, this is an excellent entry to get back to. If you liked WRC 6, returning players will find very little that’s new in WRC 7 for the money. The attention to detail is applaudable, and the realism and authenticity Kylotonn brings is unmatched, but is in need of something more to liven this series up for future entries.
Overall WRC 7 is an enjoyable, rewarding title, with a curve that will suit rally enthusiasts looking for a simulation, it is not as simulated as Project Cars 2, but its does try. It will not take newcomers by the hand, but it will guide you and teach you to drive from the very low tiers and as you improve, so does your standings. For experienced drivers, you will be tested, oh yes you will be, so be prepared.
If you’re looking for a casual racer, the experience may be just what you’re looking for, but those hardcore racers out there may be left disappointed.
if you want a more polished and forgiving game then opt for DiRT 4, but if you’re a big rally fan who is looking for a challenge then WRC 7 is the game for you. The wonderful handling, great stages and awesome physics all add up to something that feels excellent to play.
WRC 7 has brought us a new game for the saga that is very recommendable if you love racing games, it is a very known brand that offers the possibility to live each year’s championship, making it a game that recycles itself by adding the new stages, cars, teams and features that comes up every year, but that is what happens with sports games; they try to make it as real as posible so that’s why they tend to stick to what happens in the actual season. In my opinion they could try to fix the graphics and physics just a bit because, for example the behaviour of the car, when getting out of the track or having collisions, is not very good.
WRC is a decent racing simulator that might be worth your time if you're looking for a solid and focused rally experience
WRC7 is entertaining but imperfect! It’s an enjoyable game due to its great handling and gameplay while you are behind the wheel. In addition, great number of tracks, various weather and geographical conditions such as forests, mountains, deserts and snowy lands are all other good features of the game. However, limited number of cars and unpleasant career mode prevent WRC7 from being a flawless title.

WRC 7 is a commendable rally game that does little to advance the sport on the video game platform. However, that's not to say that it has to be revolutionary to be good. It does provide plenty of adrenaline, filled tracks that span all the real world major events, with plenty of differing conditions and surfaces that are sure to be challenging to master.
For ardent rally fans then, WRC 7 is well worth a look.
