WRC 5 Fia World Rally Championship
I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming rented a copy of WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship on the PS4. Bigben Interactive usually sends games to Family Friendly Gaming. I am unclear as to why their PR and Marketing departments failed so miserably with WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship. Maybe they knew we would fail their game, and only want a bunch of video game review yes men. Thankfully so many of our readers do not purchase a game until we review it.
If you have been saving your money and waiting on WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship, let me give you my opinion on this racing game. Pass. Apply your money to a better product. WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship is difficult, touchy, and extremely frustrating. If Bigben Interactive ever wanted me to play WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship again they would have to pay me. I would not pay a penny for this game. Even with the different weather effects.
WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship looks like a Playstation 3 game, and plays like a Playstation game (I played it on the PS4). Then you have that annoying navigator who mainly confuses what needs to be done. His commentary on what needs to be done is too far ahead. So I kept looking for a place to brake, and went off the cliff. Ah the good times in WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship.
The modes in WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship are solo, multiplayer, leaderboards and options. Under solo we have a quick stage, quick rally, career, and rally school. Under multiplayer there is local multiplayer and online. Local multiplayer in WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship is horrible. Up to eight players take their turn with the same controller. This favors those that race later with rewinds.
Repairing the damage done to the vehicle is one of the coolest things in WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship. What is lame is having to try and get through these courses so fast without taking any damage. I could not even complete the lessons at the beginning of the game. WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship is not friendly to casual gamers in any fashion. There are nice options, plenty of countries in this game with long loading times.
