The only thing that I liked from WRC franchise (Milestone) was the carrer mode from 3/4. Starting in the Junior championship and getting contracts from WRC 3 then 2 then top teams was really god. If CM do something like the idea from @ThierryNeuville I would be really pleased!


You mean this Idea?

Now here is some gossip worthy news!

http://www.virtualr.net/porsche-breaking-free-least

EA's exclusive Porsche license will expire in 2016.  Could it be possible that we could see a Porsche DLC pack for DiRT Rally next year sometime.  I can just imagine a 959 in some sort of desert event or a new GT3 (Tuttel Racing version) possibly in the upcoming Germany event.

Well I can dream can't I :smile:   
Or also a 911 dashing through Monte Carlo :)

Seems like game has arcadey gameplay, it doesn´t surprise me as this game is made towards more casual rally and racing gamers, given its license and respective audience. It reminds me of V-rally in the way that the car slides on corners lol.

I like the menus though, it feels really WRC themed unlike the previous two WRC games.

Tbh i think the game is more catered towards the hardcore rally fans/gamers.

Not with those NFS physics it isn't. It just shows they're not taking it seriously. They've gotten a lot of advice and constructive criticism for all of their titles, and what have they learned? Nada. They just keep pumping out this puppy vomit they have the stomach to call rally game.

I have one word for them. Shoo.

WRC 5 is developed by a French company - it's their first attempt at a rally game. I think there were some dev diary videos where they showed they hired people from some respected sim racng game developers.

Nevertheless, the game does not look very appealing to someone really interested in an authentic and proper rally experience.

Funny thing is that this whole arrangement with Big Bean Interactive acting as publisher for Milestone in the past and Kylotonn Games must be working to some extent for them as they keep churning them out, which means it makes some financial sense.

Milestone now think they can go on their own with a new IP, but SLRE is not that convincing just yet. The thing is that it's not their first rally game, so what's the excuse? Will they turn it around before it gets released?

To my mind they won't reach the level of DiRT Rally - not a chance.

But then let's not give Codies reasons to become complacent :P

I'll comment later since I am looking at this on my phone, but being nitpicky on visuals of all the Rally Games DR included.  On my phone I see that the hood (bonnet) gets dusty, it would be nice to see that in DR.  Again I'm nitpicking but that's just what my work has trained me to do, really it's a sickness:)

Wow, I got my hopes up for WRC5 as I'm a big fan of the current crop of cars, but that's thoroughly disappointing; I can hardly tell the difference from the Milestone ones - I thought "they must have learned by now, after 4 unsuccessful attempts", but it seems not. Out with the old boss, in with the new boss, I'm not getting fooled again.

More SLRE Gameplay. I don't think the guy actually knows how to drive a car either, he's holding the wheel in a very bizarre way.

https://youtu.be/Rf4SzNhxtpc

Crap sound from the car.
Lol he says in the beginning that he was informed (probably by Namco xD) that SLRE is the best rally game to be released at the moment, he must have not played Dirt Rally for sure. Also during the video he makes it pretty clear that it is difficult and the car is hard to control. Maybe its physics are better than expected? Or he is just a sucky driver? :P

Now if this allowed for a modern R-GT class to fill the rwd modern void, that would be perfect.

I think generally people dont realise just how many porsches have been and are used in rallying.

Or the physics are so bad it's counter-intuitive to try driving it.

But I'm pretty sure that's not the case. Honestly, it can't possibly be that bad, could it?

Saw another video of a guy making an analysis of SLRE that he played at E3. He says the game is legit and felt like a PC rally game as in it has realistic physics. Video if y'all want to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNwpkgt_HZA

The car looks like it's on rails, it just doesn't want to go sideways. Thoughout that video he's accelerating around corners and going fast though other corners and he rarely had to counter steer
