Grab The Games: WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship

"The WRC championship is the most difficult and unpredictable motorsport competition in the world. Drivers, co-drivers and technical staff have to constantly adapt to get the best from their cars and be the fastest on each surface, whatever the weather, both day and night." That's how I want to start my review today, and I am thrilled to present you a game I was delighted to get my hands on. I am talking about a new highly anticipated title from the already successful franchise, WRC, WRC 8.

  After playing only a few hours, I couldn't be happier not only that we have the opportunity to review it but also that we are going to present why this title is unique! But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up when available? Stick around, and you will find out now. Let's start by mentioning a few things about the game itself. With the new dynamic weather system developed for WRC 8, rain, snow and hailstorms have a more significant impact, resulting in a much more true to life simulation. Road grip changes during the race, cars need to be tuned specifically for each particular stage, tire choices and stock management need to be considered, and making proper use of the weather team to get the best advice.

The weather is much more than a visual effect - now it's finally coming into its own, adding a whole new dimension to the game. Sounds cool right? But wait there is more. The graphics are satisfying enough. There is excellent attention to detail, vast environments filled with NPCs and a lot of points of interest. All these create a great atmosphere, even for the most demanding players. Furthermore, I was impressed with the many available cars and rallies. There are, 50 teams, 14 rallies and more than 100 special stages from the 2019 season, the title offers the most content ever in an off-road racing game. 

Another additional aspect that is worth mentioning is the fact that there a lot of different modes to play. There is local split-screen, multiplayer, time trial, and many more. The realism is also a great plus in WRC 8 from the weather to the car damage, the eighth installment of the series, definitely breaths fresh air into the franchise. As far as the negative answers are concerned, I couldn't find anything that stopped me from having or prevented me from enjoying the title to the fullest. 

To sum up, as I mentioned, the game is a gem for your library with a great choice of cars and stages to choose from. It offers not only a complete experience even for the most hard-core fans but also, manages to keep you interested in playing again and again.
