What A Difference One Year Makes

  • Alvin Kato

    Goodness! You must be stalking me Jason! I have been hunting down wrc6 review clips and just watched that clip yesterday! The longer stages really did it for me!

    As someone who bought wrc5 and could n’t play it because it sucked, I think I’ll give this one a shot. Its bound to be way more exciting lengthwise and diverse in ways that Dirt Rally is n’t.

    Again thanks for the post and please stop stalking me! ha ha

    I have to agree, I’m looking forward to this game (again) as I do all of them. I do not like WRC5 in its current version, WRC4 from two years ago I started to get use to, the driving style and even handbrake turns… WRC3 was difficult and they were way off..
    I love Dirt, I really wish though they had more cars and more rallies.
    Might I add, I really miss V-Rally 3. The career mood was the same, start as a junior and make your way up in experience, in years, only rarely would seasons repeat themselves, I’d turn into a Makinen winning 4 seasons in a Mitsu WRCar, move over to Citroen for 6 seasons and do a Loeb, then to Toyota in a Corolla WRC, might have just been after Mitsubishi in the game but still, they had a great game play, cars, stages…. I think Dirt turned into the new version of V-Rally but again, would love those old cars as I’ve posted here before.
    Have a game that will start in one era and continue through the decades… Don’t become champion, don’t be offered a top drive, build your name back up! Have 10 rallies, 6 in each season but mix them up, even 12 rallies and 6 in a season. Oh my mind could keep dreaming. Have an Evo VI, then change to the new Focus RS from 1999, drive a Córdoba too, Octavia WRC, Xsara, sorry I started in 1999 following the WRC so that’s my era, and respect to Group B and other cars too.

    I forgot to mention, I loved the WRC games from Evolution Studios, WRC II on PS2 I think it was, in the Delecour Mitsu Evo VII Step 2, Rally Sweden! I just keep picturing that, playing over in my brain. That was a great game. But was it the second WRC game? I have to research :)

      Those games rocked! I remember playing WRC on ps2 back in 2003 and it was so amazing! The co-driver’s voice was clear, the tracks were simple and fine for that time and I loved the fact that Tommi Making’s Mitsubishi Lancer was the available car for the demo version.

      WRC6 seems to have improved, I hope they have thrown out that robotic co-driver though. He’s a nuisance to listen to.

    Remember when WRC 3 was out? The extreme Skoda Supurb, the extreme Focus? =D
