What experts liked

The driving is where WRC 7 really shines, with a handling model that feels like it has been given an extra coat of realism and speed.

The audio of the game is good, menu music suits the theme of the game but there is none to distract you during the race from the start to finish which leaves you to concentrate on the very clear and well presented co-driver instructions that guide you through the otherwise incredibly blind corners and sudden turns.

WRC 7 is still the only place you can play through a full season of proper, WRC-level rallying, but there’s not much creative spark here, and it’s all a bit one-speed.

I'm impressed with the diversity in race tracks. There are 13 different rally locations, each one with several track options.

It’s also another positive step forwards for the series, which shows that there is absolutely the potential there to turn in something special.

WRC 7’s mainstay game mode is the career, which lets you create a driver and sign them up to a team in the Junior WRC category with the goal being to rise up through the ranks.

Whether it’s tackling a sloping, bumpy straight or a slew of sharp corners, WRC 7 is a game that is quick (very quick in fact) to punish those who come in with an arcade-style line of thinking.

Much like last year’s game, the stages look a little rugged but the lighting does it’s damnedest to give each stage some scenic beauty.

WRC 7 is an intense rally game that will test the skills of racing game veterans. Car handling feels fun and intense, and you get a great sense of the car’s weight, complemented by decent force feedback, (should you be using a racing wheel) that helps make the action even more realistic and intuitive.

The WRC is undoubtedly one of the most thrilling racing leagues in the world. Just imagine barrelling down a dirt road barely wide enough to fit your car, taking twists and turns at 60mph (that’s 100km/hr for most of the world).
- True Achievements
While WRC 7‘s career mode will be the main attraction for most players, the usual options to jump into a quick stage or create your own custom championship are also available, as well as multiple multiplayer options.

Now, I fully understand that this game has a solid arcade backbone to it. It does less than other Rally games in terms of gameplay depth and design, but what it lacks in depth in actual design, it offers up more in quick fun.

What experts didn't like

Not that the experience here is lacking, but again it hasn’t really moved on from last year.

The new updated graphics place the game on a higher scale, but it still probably only compares to the quality of some older Forza games in comparison.

The biggest problem in the garage is the fact that WRC 7 is still singularly focused on the current era of competition.

The competitive scene may be better in the Challenge mode, where you race the leaderboards for best times.

It’s not all smooth sailing – clearly a chunk of the game is off-road – but in my time with it WRC 7 did crash out to the PlayStation’s blue screen of doom a couple of times, both when returning to a suspended game.

Lack of driving assist options creates a punishing difficulty
- GameSpot

Unfortunately not only do these teams lack any severe degree of individual personality and character — outside of a simple palette swap in the mode’s in-between garage/press areas — the career aspect comes across as severely lacking in its attempt to bring in management/sim-style mechanics.

Online lobbies do have trouble filling out but I’ve found a handful of players This makes things difficult when trying to get a full compliment together.

The career mode hasn’t really evolved since 2015’s WRC 5 and is in need of a refresh for next year’s offering.

The issue with this career mode is that it doesn’t make you want to play. There’s nothing to make you want to do well except for the joy of racing itself.
- True Achievements
Initially, the game’s handling can feel “off” too. When I began playing WRC 7 it felt like there was a delay between me moving the analogue stick and my vehicle beginning to turn.
