Blending the arcade sensibilities and top-down perspective from Micro Machines, complete with power ups and multiplayer, (and the WRC license, of course), WRC Powerslide has quietly snuck onto the Xbox Live Arcade today.

Offering competitive four-player racing with an arcade flavour, WRC Powerslide features the official WRC rally cars and locations, the game features a single-player mode and online multiplayer modes.

WRC Powerslide is available to download from XBLA now for 1200 Microsoft Points. You can add it to your download queue here. There's a trailer below if you wanna find out more about WRC Powerslide.

Thanks, but no thanks. I'll wait for the game to hit 800 MS Points before I purchase it.

Looks..... ok. Will wait until it hits 400Ms points. I don't think it's worth any more than that tbh.

If it ever hits 400 I might grab it. 1200 seems way too high. 800 is even a bit much.

Ill agree the 1200 put me of a little. Hell i've been getting retail games cheaper than that for a while now. Good ones too.

But, I shelled out for this as I love rally games. It's great fun, Real joy to play...Very arcadey, but massive fun. Now switched power-upa off and am flooring it around corners like boss!!

I love how people are saying how 1200 is a bit high, and 800 is, without having even actually played it!

I had pretty high hopes for this, but the demo didn't impress me that much. I can see it being great fun in multiplayer, but the single player didn't feel that new, and the graphics are very rough around the edges (I'm not expecting Forza, but it kind of looks like original Xbox graphics).

I'll hold out until it's around 600 points in a DOTW because it looks fun but not like something I'd get that much playing time out of.

The guy who does all the promotion for these WRC games has no idea anything about promoting a game.

He just seems to get paid for nothing and the game launches....awful awful.

Anyway, ill be doing the same, love rally games, but not enough to pay 1200 for something such as WRC

My 250 gig HD is getting pretty full... I'll give it a demo try but it's going to need to impress pretty seriously for me to pick it up at any more than 600 points.
