WRC 5 is a big improvement over its predecessors when it comes to handling. Elsewhere you sense there's slightly more of an affinity with the sport than before in the series, where too often it all felt like something of an obligation
- Euro Gamer
Amazing handling model.

Nice menu music, throaty engine noises, fierce crackling exhaust sounds, superb.

WRC 5 on the PlayStation 4 is good rally game.

What experts didn't like
Without adjusting any of the difficulty settings, something immediately feel off about the game’s physics. Whilst turning corners I felt inconveniently gripped to the road, making the all-important game of slip and slide impossible to get going. Everything feels rigid, as if the car and road just had an uncomfortable conversation about their dying relationship and are now lying on opposite sides of the bed, backs turned.

The technical issues are particularly jarring when the slick handling isn't matched by the frame-rate, which lurches too often under stress on consoles, and it's all offset by a soundtrack of engines that are just a little too reedy.
- Euro Gamer
Poor damage modelling.

On the rare occasion that you do get into an online lobby, you have to wait for every player to hit the 'ready' button, otherwise you're stuck interminably, which is annoying.
- Playstation Trophies
Graphically, WRC 5 is a little dated of the PlayStation 4 and undeniably feels and looks like a last-gen title. Sure, there are some impressive tracks in this game but for the majority it looks a little too static and simplistic at the best of times. Also, there are some graphical glitches like tearing and framerate drops
