WRC 2010 Game Trailer: Carnage Aplenty

Posted in FIA WRC, Off-Roading, Racing, Rally by Kurt Ernst | July 24th, 2010 | 3 Responses |

I’m not really sure what the minimum price of admission is for a season in the FIA’s World Rally Championship, but I’ll take a scientific wild ass guess and say about $5,000,000. If you want to be remotely competitive, double that; if you have illusions of chasing the championship, triple it.

I don’t have that kind of money in the bank, and I’ve tried the whole “call-15-million-of-your-closest-friends-to-borrow-a-dollar” routine before, with absolutely no luck. My only shot at chasing a championship in WRC is likely going to come from Black Bean Games, whose WRC 2010 should hit stores on October 8. It’ll be available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC, and will feature 78 different rally stages from 13 countries. That’s a whole lot of gravel, sand, tarmac and snow to shred, without having to lay out tons of cash and spend months out of the year away from home. The best part is that you don’t even need a Nomex suit or balls of steel.

If the trailer is any indication, the graphics look good enough. They’re not on par with Gran Turismo 5, but then again this game is likely to get released before the end of time. Besides, I care more about how a game plays than how it looks: if the physics are realistic enough, I’m willing to overlook a whole lot of blocky, distorted scenery.

    It doesn’t look anything like Dirt2, the current rally game. But, if it’s more realistic physics wise, I’ll be a happy camper. Dirt1 was much more “realistic” in that regard.
