EA Sports WRC - ratings and reception

Taking into account the ratings of industry journalists, Codemasters has once again delivered a quality product. Maybe the title is not one of the team's most outstanding, but it certainly provides many hours of great fun. On OpenCritic EA Sports WRC has an average rating of 83/100, and the game is recommended by 100% of reviewers (based on 11 reviews).. On Metacritic the average score for the PC version is 84/100 (also based on 11 texts)

Critics emphasize the fact that both new players and rallying experts will feel at home in the game.

Nevertheless, the game suffers from some teething problems - there are problems with optimization or technical errors, which, however, should be eliminated over time. Journalists turn a blind eye to such faults, considering that this is the first WRC game developed by Codemasters on Unreal Engine 5.

Gamers approach the subject differently. On Steam, the game gets "mixed" reviews - only 63% of the currently available 168 reviews are positive. Users complain about stuttering, lack of VR mode, poor driving physics.
