    Something for everyone this year it seems with Dirt 4, F1 2017, Project Cars 2, Forza 7 and GTSport but has anyone considered a purchase of WRC7?

    Steam reviews seemed mixed but a few people on the GTP forum seem to like it.
    Anyone here played it yet?

    I've been enjoying it very much, much more realistic handling than 6 and it also looks really nice too. Tracks are good, much narrower than before, it's not as good as dirt rally but for a WRC game it is the best yet.

    How does it compare to Dirt 4?

    @whatthefu I enjoyed dirt 4 more, WRC is like the poor relation who has recently had a windfall, Still poor compared to the wealthy Dirt family! Dirt 4 is better in my opinion.

    OK thanks.
    I'm back playing Dirt Rally now. Still great, just needs new stages :)

    It would take a great rallying game to knock Dirt Rally off its perch.

    Got this coming from boomerang on the ps4. I've yet to play dirt 4 but I do like the look of this.

    @Addyb_V2

    Can you let me know if you can map the acceleration/brake to the right stick?

    @Nitrous

    Well if you haven't had an answer beforehand I'll check when I get on it.

    Just tried remapping controls and it won't let me map anything to the joysticks mate.

    @Addyb_V2

    Thanks for that. Can't use the triggers for racing games thanks to years of playing Gran Turismo with the joysticks. I guess I could setup the wheel though.

    Moto GP18 has the same restriction but they have promised a patch for that so if and when that happens I'll happily get a copy.

    Never tried using the sticks that way to be honest. I've always been a trigger man myself. I've actually just started GT6 today so might map the controls as that and see how I get on....providing I can on GT6.

    @Addyb_V2

    Yeah you can. It's not a control setup that works for everyone but at least it's not X button for go and [] to stop...

    If you do try it map reverse to X and handbrake to R2 epically for rally stages. Manual gears R1 up and down L1.

    Really enjoying this. It's the first one of these I've played. Just the right difficulty was set for me. I'm currently 6th place overall in my first season but just a few seconds off top 3. I like the little objectives for each Rally. Handling is really good. Got it rented but I'm half tempted to buy it.

    Got this and Sebastien Loeb, and I'm hard pushed deciding which I prefer. WRC is probably the prettier title, Sebastien is maybe the better handling. Either one has plenty to do. Don't think you can go wrong with either if you're after a cheap rally game in the sales.

    I'll have to check out Sebastien Loeb.

    Mmm I can get it for 3.60 on pc.

    Think I'll rent Loeb and buy wrc 7 as it's only 9.99 on the current PSN sale. I'm really enjoying it so will send the rental back and have it on digital.
