WRC Edition 2005 est dans la continuité de son aîné mais il apporte tellement de petits plus, que ce soit au niveau des modes de jeu ou de l'ambiance des rallyes, qu'on ne peut absolument pas parler d'actualisation. C'est une vraie évolution et on voit mal qui pourrait réussir à devancer le titre de Sony qui atteint une grande maturité avec ce 5ème opus.
WRC Rally Evolved ist auf den ersten Blick ein Nachfolger, wie man ihn sich nur wünschen kann. Die Grafik wurde mit einigen zusätzlichen Effekten aufpoliert, es winken neue Modi wie Rally Cross und das Fahrverhalten fühlt sich noch realistischer an, doch bietet man gleichzeitig auch Anfängern mit zuschaltbaren Fahrhilfen einen guten Einstieg in den anspruchsvollen Motorsport. Doch bereits nach dem ersten WM-Lauf kommt die Ernüchterung: Soll das wirklich schon alles gewesen sein? Und je weiter ihr vorankommt, weicht die Ernüchterung immer mehr der Gewissheit, dass Rallye Evolved einfach weniger und kürzere Strecken bietet als der Vorgänger. Auch das Ausfahren der WM in einem höheren Schwierigkeitsgrad ändert daran nichts. Vier Wertungsprüfungen pro Rallye - das war's. Und dieses Manko kann weder der Rally Cross-Modus noch die Oldtimer-Herausforderung oder die hohe Anzahl an Wagen und Klassen wettmachen.

The new hazards system and the ability to use some of the high-end cars without having to wait for it may help to attract fans of the previous games in the WRC series to the latest instalment and players who are new to the series should not be disappointed at all by what Evolved has to offer. The game plays at a quick pace right from the start so you don’t have to wade through any slow or dull races for it to start to get good.

It's lovely to look at, technically sound, and blessed with too many pleasing touches to recount here. Equally, though, its structure is woefully unimaginative, and no amount of throwaway gimmicks can disguise that fact. WRC's online functionality is great, but it has a lousy championship system (three races per rally just isn't enough - just as you get to grips with the surface and environment, it's over), a Rally Cross mode that feels eminently disposable in singleplayer, and a series of short challenges that, as entertaining as they may be, are a direct lift from the Gran Turismo series. WRC just isn't as good as it so easily could and should be. I'd trade every single Interactive Event, half the stages, all of the unlockable (also: disposable) bonus features and practically all of the cars for a solid career/championship mode and, more pertinently, a damage system that introduced a sense of danger to accompany the urgency of each race.
