After Astro, this game has the best haptics I've experienced on PS5.

Yes I totally agree, this shows that third party developers can really get the most out of the haptics and triggers. Let’s hope they carry on with WRC10!

A few other third party developers have come close...the triggers in Cold War are really good but the haptics could do with some more work, and there are some decent haptics in Valhalla like when you dive into a haystack or water, but the rest of the haptics and triggers are just a bit basic - there’s no haptics for when you are on horseback!

Seriously? This is pure heresy

This game is so hard compared to something like Dirt

Since my every attempt at Dirt results in flinging a car off corners like a two-ton bar of soap, I will heartily avoid WRC.

Thanks. This is the comment I was looking for.

It definitely got a learning curve but it's very satisfying once you get the hand of it

Don’t hesitate to adjust the sensitivity of your analog sticks. I saw someone mention it in another post and thought I’d try it. I still suck at the game but it’s much easier to control the car in high speeds. If you’re like me, you can also change some settings to give you more driver assistance/remove some aspects of the difficulty etc.

Even at -10 sensitivity the cars handle like I'm using the dpad there's hardly any margin for error. Cockpit shows the wheel turning like 0-100 real quick

I've only played dirt rally 2.0, but from the little bit I did play, you learn that you aren't meant to drive at top speed. The prompts are on by default to warn you about corners and such, so make sure you slow down before a corner. I had it set to auto, when other games I like playing on manual, purely because there is too many changes in speed.

is this game like Dirt 2.0 or is it more arcade?

ID: gudgnn7

It's a bit more realistic than Dirt Rally 2.0 but not as much as Richard Burns Rally or Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo

ID: gue61u6

The physics are very much sim like Dirt Rally 2.0 (although Richard Burns still performs better), imo the road physics are way better than Dirt Rally's and feel nowhere near as floaty. The stages are definitely harder but more authentic than Rally's they get seriously narrow

This is a lot more of a racing sim rather than an arcadey game like Dirt.

It’s my first racing sim game and I am finding it quite hard with all the options...but I am having so much fun learning!

I think he meant Dirt Rally not just Dirt.

ID: gud3dhl

Any tips for fun arcadey racing games on the PS5? I miss the days of Hot Pursuit 2 and Most Wanted on PS2. I want racing games to be fun, not realistic.

ID: gudebtj

Personally I find it easier than Dirt Rally, but not much. Harder than Dirt 4 and 5 though.

ID: gue2y03

I'm not sure about the Sim vs Arcade thing but I find this game much easier than Dirt Rally. Much harder than previous Dirt (not rally) games.

Looks like Hood: Outlaws & Legends is getting good haptics and triggers too!

This kinda made me wanna try the game, ngl.

The 120FPS mode is also almost completely stable. The only frame drops I had in ~30-40 hours were only on the mexico stages
