Though not for everyone, serious fans of rally racing -- and rally racing video games -- will appreciate this realistic driving experience. Like other installments of this series, WRC 10 is an authentic rally racing simulation, with everything that implies: realistic handling, physics, and so on. But it's also an homage to the sport's 50 year history. That's why you're not just running races from the 2021 season in current cards, but you also get to race iconic rally races from the sport's history using both modern and vintage rally cars, and get to race new events using both modern and vintage rally cars. It's also why you, in some modes, you can decide what time of day it is, and what the weather is like, as well as numerous technical aspects of your vehicle.
Of course, all of this meaningless if you're not into realistic racing simulations and, more importantly, rally racing. Unlike many motor sports, this has you racing against the clock to get the best time, and working with your navigator who tells you when to turn and how hard. As a result, people who don't want to race on their own, and with someone telling them what to do, or who prefer the more relaxed approach of an arcade racing game, will find this endlessly frustrating. Doubly so when they get to the detailed "Career" mode and have to micromanage a team as well. But for rally heads and racing sim enthusiasts, this has it all. More, in fact, than before; along with the vintage events and cars, this also adds a mode where you can paint and decorate your cars. All of which makes WRC 10 more than just your usual Sunday drive.
