WRC 4: FIA World Rally Championship
WRC 4: FIA World Rally Championship is a rally game based on the 2013 FIA World Rally Championship license. The player can choose his favorite crew and car from all the 2013 official categories: Junior WRC, WRC 3, WRC 2 and WRC. Unlike the previous game WRC 3: FIA World Rally Championship there are no classic cars present in the base version. There are 65 cars in total and locations in thirteen countries with 78 courses in total. Each rally event includes three days with two races each day. Also for the first time in WRC series, the game features light changes (sunrise, daylight and sunset). The Career mode has been updated as well, starting with a lowly ranked theme and then moving up by performing well.
Every stage can be raced independently and single rallies are also available, with six stages each. The game has an online multiplayer mode for up to 16 players where ghost cars can be added in addition to human players. A hot seat mode is also supported. Cars have different customization settings and the AI difficulty can be altered on a scale from one to ten.

There are 13 different rallies in the game, which adds up to about 85 individual tracks. The terrain you will drive on is as varied as you'll find on Earth itself. The controls are very easy to use, even if you're only using a keyboard and mouse. It does not take a lot of effort to learn how to powerslide your rally car around turns.
There is not much customization of your rally car available - you can't even select a specific tyre set that works best on a specific track. All that's available is tweaking your car setup.
The Bottom Line
WRC 4 is what is called a rally racing game - it is you against the clock. You drive your rally car around tracks from Point A to Point B. The key is driving as fast as you can without damaging your car too much - too much damage will force you to withdraw from the rally you are doing, and that hurts your ability to obtain enough championship points to win championships in each of the four WRC Rally divisions.
