    All:

    I finally got my PS2 back after it broke its laser or its laser stopped reading discs or something, and at the store I was picking it up from was one copy of WRC.

    Natually (after hearing all the good things you guys said about it), I didn't hesitate to get it.

    So I took it home and turned it on. Wow! It's unquestionably one of the best games I've ever purchased (definitely behind GTA3 though).

    My first run was with the Octavia - by the end of the run I had a broken windshield, misaligned front and rear bumpers, no front-right headlight, black smoke pouring out of the engine, and all of the red warning lights on. :D

    I've improved somewhat since. My problem is that the game says it's 'auto-saving' but I can't load a save file. It 'auto-saved' my World Rally Championship-series game and now I can't recover it - at least I only did Monaco. Before I attempt it again I'd like to know what's going on...

    Mmm- that's odd. I always get in the habit of saving whenever possible, so it might be best to save at the end of each stage. I had no problems loading saved games.

    Any late calls from the navigator yet?

    I should just save manually before turning off my console and circumvent the problem in its entireity.

    Not any late calls yet, though every so often I want to tell him to shut up - when I did my first race (from 3rd-person view) I wondered what all the noise in the cockpit was (it's hard to hear over the engine noise). I thought there was a radio on! :lol:

    Much like the real ones I suppose.

    The first night I had it, I came up on a 'three left' but saw what I thought was a short cut right across the corner - I heard 'don't cut' just as it became apparent there was a hundred foot deep ravine there.

    The replay was hilarious - four locked wheels, and then into space...

    My favourite is:

    "150 Left Two"

    I approach the turn, from the right, flat...

    "Into"

    err ... uh oh

    "Five Right"

    Bang!

    Today it happened, I believe in Greece.

    I come to a straightaway followed by a hard left. At some point in the straightaway he says "caution, crest," so I floor it hoping to brake in time for the left at the end of the straightaway. As I roll end over end down the cliff, he says "five left." Loser. :D
