Welcome to WRC (World Rally Championship) 8, the eighth game of the WRC franchise. For those unfamiliar with it, WRC takes you into the country to race against the clock, as you will be on your own at the track. There are multiple stages on each country, tracks and conditions will vary as you go for the necessary 5 seasons it will take to get all the achievements. Understanding English is a great help, as some of the signs only give half a clue and the audio will have more info.
Your first thing should be to start a career on Easy, with Low or Visual only damage on your car. I started at the Junior WRC, as I was new to the game and that will also help towards the cumulative achievements of "Hotshot" for winning stages and "Nomad" for kilometers. You should get a lot of the miscellaneous achievements as well as the specific ones for the finishing on the podium on all stages culminating in "Hero". There are specific things you will need to do in terms of repairs for achievements, but this should come easy and can be done at any level. Eventually you will get upgraded to WRC 2 and finally to WRC.
On the WRC a couple of specific achievements will be available regarding the season objective and specific objectives. Once you win on the WRC you will get "WRC Champion," however you might need to play a couple more season "Indecisive" and the before mentioned cumulative achievements.
There is only one multiplayer achievement, and it requires you to win the first stage on a Rally. If you are doing this with a boosting partner you might as well get "Race Master" on the same go.
By the time you get "Indecisive" you should have most (or all) the achievements for this game. If not, just continue playing for kilometers and stage wins on career. Also, if you did not set your damage setting, you will need to get "Public threat."
This is a very enjoyable, though sometimes repetitive, game with a decent list of achievements and completion time for a racing game. It is very different from Forza or F1 games (as is the WRC) but familiarity with racing games will help a lot. Since there is only one “difficulty-related” achievement and the whole game can be done on easy, it does take a lot of the challenge out of it if you are looking to 1000 this game.
