EB: Now you might be wondering why you should bother to give WRC 5 a go after such a berating. As an arcade racer, WRC 5 does a good job at letting you blast through stages, powering around a series of tight corners is genuinely good fun. The tracks themselves are approximations of their real-world counterparts, and while they are bland in terms of texture (snow in particular looks awful at night), they have enough variation to stem the repetition. Most stints last for about five minutes, meaning that WRC 5 is best enjoyed in quick bursts, hop on do a rally or two, then come off before the facade starts to melt away. Its an ok first effort, but apart from serious rally aficionados, who will want this because of the WRC liscence, there just isn’t enough real challenge to keep it interesting.
