Take to the snowy forests and dirt tracks of the world once more, in hopes of being crowned the best rally driver of all time. Yes that's right, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship is back with WRC 7. Developed by Kylotonn and published by Bigben Interactive, WRC 7 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
While WRC 7 doesn't have a story mode, it does provide player with a very Extensive Career mode. The career mode will see you go from a rookie driving in the ranks of the Junior WRC, to the number one rally driver in the world (which will be made obvious to everyone, seeing as you will be holding a heavy WRC trophy over your head).
WRC 7 brings it's players the best driving experience to date. The gameplay is truly on par with the DiRT series in terms of how fun, responsive, and realistic the driving feels.
The driving mechanics are top notch, making every one of the licensed FIA WRC tracks a blast to rip through as fast as your car will let you. The addition of weekly challenges for players to tackle in the multiplayer mode will ensure that players have every reason to check back, in order to test their driving prowess against both their friends and other players around the world.
This game's graphics are stunning, every conceivable aspect of the real-life tracks have been expertly recreated, so that fans can drive through all the stages of their favourite event and truly feel like their favourite driver.
With each track backing onto breathtaking landscapes that really make you feel like you are in the real life locations, driving these terrifyingly fast cars. Pray that you don't take a turn wrong and slide straight into a deep gorge.
The cars of WRC 7 all look immaculate and take real damage that affects your car as you progress through each stage.
The audio of WRC 7 is perfect. There is no overbearing soundtrack to mute your co-driver mid-race, because anyone who has played a rally game knows just how important being able to hear your co-driver is to successfully complete a track.
The menu music is a healthy mix of rock and pop, which are good to get players in the mood before a race. The cars all sound realistic which is great for player immersion and making the player feel like they are actually watching a real WRC race on TV (so in essence, a revheads delight).
WRC 7 is a game that blends together all of the elements that make a great racing game (driving mechanics, audio, and realism) extremely well, which in my opinion makes this a game that every racing fan should pick up and play immediately. WRC 7 is a wild and dirty ride that is incredibly enjoyable all the way to the finish line.
