Anyone picking this up? I think I'm going to after I finish GT5.

yes, Im going to.

 

When I heard the announcement I thought this game wouldn't be any good, since they most likely spent the most of the budget on the big name, sebastien loeb, as usual in such games.

So I bought WRC5, got the Platinum, and swore myself to never put it into my PS4 again - WRC5 is bullshit.

 

Then the SLRE-Demo came out which was surprisingly good. 

I had a few thoughts about it, and if I would rather wait till Dirt Rallye. But I'm going to buy them both. The SLRE-Demo is quite fun, so it's going to span a bridge to Dirt.

I played the demo version on PS4 and I was quite disappointed. Idk if the PS4 controller is totally wrong in this game (and consequently the racing wheel is a must-buy), 'cause I tried all cars available (Abarth 500, Toyota Celica and Citroen DS3) and it was very difficult to keep 'em on track without crashes on Sanremo track. First, I tried using 'em without any electronic aids and it was just...awful. Understeer or oversteer anytime I pushed to throttle. Then, after countless retries, I decided to put on all driving aids and the feeling of cars on the ground was a bit different, but not enough to say "I'll buy this game, it's a must buy".

 

The only rally game that (maybe) I'll buy it's Dirt Rally. It seems much more driveable with a controller.

This game (demo) with a controller is an absolute joke. I can't ever stop the car from falling of the track. I'm still going to buy this because I love racing games. On a more positive note, this game looks to be an insanely easy platinum!

I played the demo, and if you have a little skill in racing games and you like them, this is the game for you.

I have to add, that I'm playing it in a racing chair with a steering wheel-setup

What wheel are you using? I am genuinely upset that the G27 does not work with the PS4.

currently I'm using a Thrustmaster T150, which is surprisingly good

Is there a demo available on the NA PSN Store? I'm really interested in this game because the car list looks phenomenal and the physics look to be more on the simulation side than arcade which is a huge plus too.

Thoughts on what, exactly, the trophy list or the game?

 

I watched 2 raw gameplay videos of Darin Gangi from Inside Sim Racing playing 2 stages of this. I don't know if it was on PS4 or PC but I could tell straight away that the graphics looked pretty ordinary and the game sounds were terrible. It just sounded very digitised. Darin's driving looked... uncomfortable. It might have been his first runs on the stages, or with that car, but this is a sim racing veteran and you could tell he was having trouble coming to grips with the game engine.

 

I later found out this was developed by Milestone, so my original conclusions came as no surprise. Every WRC game made by them was terrible. It's no surprise they lost the official WRC license. So many good rally game over the years. They had big shoes to fill and they pushed out 2nd rate titles, banking on the license to sell them. If I found this game in a bargain bin later this year for $25AUD I would get it, but certainly not for the price they're asking now.

 

If I had the choice between buying this or DiRT Rally, sight unseen, I would probably go with the Codemasters title (as much as they're on my shit list).

Milestone themselves actually opted out of making any further WRC licensed games due to the tight brand restrictions that the franchise has.

Plus having played WRC 5 (made by Kylotonn), I thought it was much worse than any of the games that Milestone made. It's pretty substandard.

I'm currently playing this game and i find it quite good. You have to change you camera-view cause driving with the full car in sight is just awful. Other than that the physics are ok, and the game has good enough content for hours of gameplay. The Sebastian Loeb Experience mode is nice for hardcore rally fans. And the platinum is easy. Currently aiming for it.

Just got the platinum. It was an easy game but gets pretty boring after a while.

Playing this now and the handling and driving is more like a ps1 rally game and not a game that the ps4 needs. I will plat it but i don't like the game!

Yes, with this game you really need to understand how the cars react.
 

Not intuitive like WRC old/new serie.

Yeah the cars do not react like wrc. And yes it is an easy plat. Only 1 trophy for platinum. But i hate this grind i still need 800000 points.

I really hate the controls. I can't even complete the first Loeb event without flying off the track.

Try to start playing in the Career mode, do not follow the roadmap of the trophy guide. Just a suggestion.

I'll give it a shot soon. I'll try to get more trophies for it but having to complete every single race with gold? Ugh. Maybe if I liked the game it wouldn't be much of a problem.
