Alan Boiston of VVV Gamer has released a very interesting series of preview videos of Black Bean’s upcoming World Rally Championship title, showing various cars & stages in action.
His impressions aren’t good news for sim racers though as Alan comments on the title heavily-leaning in the aracde direction and being nowhere close to Richard Burns Rally in terms of physics or DiRT 2 in terms of graphics. Furthermore, Alan comments on how the title actually plays better using a gamepad instead of a steering wheel, pointing out some physic-quirks.
These videos are a breath of fresh air compared to the more favorable coverage the title has been getting in other gaming media outlets even though many inaccuracies, especially in terms of stage design, are obvious even to casual rally fans.
Developed by Milestone, World Rally Championship will be bringing all the action of the WRC to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the PC. The game will feature all 13 rally events from the 2010 schedule and cars from the WRC, Junior WRC and the Production WRC class. World Rally Championship is planned to be released in on October 8th 2010.
