Our PC videos of WRC 5

Our PC videos of WRC 5

You'll have to wait until tonight 10:00 GMT+2 to find out what we think of WRC 5, but until then you can get a pretty good idea of what to expect from the game by watching our (many) videos of the PC version. We had to play with a gamepad because apparently our wheel isn't supported (that's a first!) but sadly there was nothing we could do. The stages we picked for the videos were often very short so you could see more different countries, but there are much longer ones (up to 9 km or so).
Note: This review code was given to us by our good friends at DLgamer.

If what I hear is correct this game had to be made with a very small development team with limited resources and very limited time, partly due to Rally Sport being unpopular in many countries including the US, its also being released on last gen consoles considering this it looks very good.

Are the CMR/Dirt rally games made with a smiliar low budget?

Well I'm really wondering about the positioning of this series. It has the WRC license, maybe that's where all the money went. Or it is a question of efficiency, and the Codemasters team can do more with the same money? Or Codemasters have indeed more money, because their games are better and, therefore, sell better? I can only judge the WRC games by reviews as I have never played them, but they seem consistently mediocre, in the 60-70% range on metacritic, for example.
I can only shrug and walk away, knowing that I'm not interested in a mediocre game with a licence, while there are better games which don't have the WRC name.

About the game

    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (3 Hours ago)

    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (13 Hours ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (16 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (19 Hours ago)
