Nice menu music, throaty engine noises, fierce crackling exhaust sounds, superb, if slightly annoying co-driver voices. WRC 5 sounds just like it should.
WRC 5's cars look nice, but the environments are a little inconsistent and in some cases, rather sterile and static. The frame rate is a bit shaky too, and some very, very minor screen tear sometimes rears its head on rare occasions.
An enjoyable and nicely challenging rally game that can sometimes be a little bit frustrating, WRC 5 is solid. The online experience is practically non-existent on Xbox One, however, which is a shame.
All of the meat and vegetables you'd expect from a racing game with no extra frills. You've got Career Mode, Quick Rally, Quick Stage, Rally School, online and local multiplayer for up to 8-players, and that's your lot. Again, solid.
Just the right amount of challenge and spread, WRC 5's list covers all of the right ground without being too difficult. A fine achievement list.
