Was this game not limited at 30fps? At least on ps4?
Yep, even on the pro model. But I will say that it's a very solid 30FPS which looks very smooth - probably helped with some motion blur. As I said previously in the other WRC 8 thread, IMO it's better to have a solid consistent 30FPS than an unsustainable 60 FPS where there are frequent frame drops.
I heard some people here said that in PS4 Pro/Xbox One X, it aims at 60 FPS. Not stable all the time but you get the idea.Yep, even on the pro model.

The torque to weight ratio of the new cars is insane too, one of the reasons why its actually very difficult to compare the handling of them to anything on DR2.0 because truth be told, theres nothing over there that feels anything like WRC 8’s main roster.Umm modern WRC cars are faster than group B cars were, and by quite a significant amount.
Even group A cars were faster only a few years after the class was introduced.
WRC4 was made by a completely different developer, and I don't think many will disagree that the WRC games up through 6 were poor. Only 7 and 8 are pretty good.Im tempted, its a pity there isnt a demo the last wrc I bought was 4 and it was poor... Really got into dirt 2.0 and feen for more stages so might jump in and grab this...
Get both. But to choose which one first... If you want to drive historic cars, or want the best overall driving & handling experience, and don't mind making your own events in Free Play or playing the online events & the fairly bare-bones career, then go with DR2.0. If you want to drive modern WRC cars and want the most immersive career experience with team management & car development, then go with WRC8.Really undecided between this and dirt rally 2!
Loved dirt rally 1 but thought it was lacking in content so skipped dirt rally 2 until now as was gona be picking it up cheap and now that wrc has turned out pretty good its gona be a tough choice...
I agree that WRC8 sounds pretty good, but I think his point was that DR2.0 sounds better. The co-driver is more natural, most of the cars have sounds sampled directly from the real thing, and the environment/tire/gravel rattle sounds are a little better IMO.WRC sounds pretty good. Co-driver is slightly questionable but it is good.
Phil Mills is definitely my least-favorite DiRT franchise co-driver. I liked Paul Coleman and Jen Horsey better. Didn't really use Nicky Grist.While Phil Mills does sound more natural in DR 2.0, he often has quite a few late/messed up calls, even on the earliest setting.
Anyway, all that being said, I still enjoy Phil more than the co-drivers in every other rally game ever. Codemasters hit upon something important by recording the pace notes on an actual live run-through and only then cutting & assigning timing/triggers. Every other rally title just pays their voice actor to say each note once, then stitches them together. The end result is like the difference between listening to an audio book read by a professional narrator, vs listening to a text-to-speech program. The former just sounds more natural, and I can follow the pace notes without having to consciously pay attention to them. The canned robotic pace notes require more mental overhead to keep track of what they are actually saying. "Right 4 long tightens 1" when read in a monotone doesn't get my attention. "Right 4 long TIGHTENS ONE" tell's me something important is happening.
Did have a few late calls, especially on hairpins and 90 deg turns.While Phil Mills does sound more natural in DR 2.0, he often has quite a few late/messed up calls, even on the earliest setting.
WRC 8's co-driver is robotic and takes a bit of getting used to but he's very punctual, no matter what call distance setting you pick.
