Here’s some more info on the game as given by the devs:
The strong partnership with the World Rally Championship as well as a collaboration with some of the greatest official drivers allows to give the enthusiasts a realistic and enjoyable driving experience. A real excitement of drift, jumps and handbrakes, to mention just a few features that make WRC 2!
WRC 2 represents a dramatic improvement from last year, with 78 stages, 86 drivers, 5 Super Special Stages, 14 locations featuring different terrain conditions, 1 Urban Stage set in Berlin and much more…
Alongside classic game modes such as “Single Rally”, “Championship” and “Time Attack”, the new “Road to the WRC” career mode allows the player to start from the WRC Academy to become the new World Rally Champion, while the “WRC Rally School” lets everyone learn how to master the most important rally techniques.
WRC 2 offers realism across the stages thanks to the overall optimisation of the game engine, new lighting effects, the real sounds of the top cars and a revamped version of the damage system. Milestone have also reintroduced the “Rewind Effect”, which allows the player to erase his mistakes and wind back time to attempt a corner again, which they originally featured in SCAR – Squadra Corse Alfa Romeo, 2005.
