WRC is overall enjoyable despite the steering issue. Managing the career mode and/or just doing the season is a fair amount of content and gameplay to take part in. Unfortunately, steering being a huge mechanic in the WRC8 makes it speed past the finish line a little behind the other racing titles already on the Switch.
WRC 8 just isn’t suited to Switch. It’s a decent port of a very good game, but chances are you just won’t have much fun with it. From the visuals to controls, the compromises are just too great. If the Switch is the only console you’ve got and you really want a serious rally experience by all means pick it up, but I suggest you change the controls straight away and get used to them. Using analogue controls is the only way to get the best out of it, but even then you’re not going be wowed by the game.
WRC 8 is a hugely enjoyable rally game – perhaps the strongest in the history of this long-running series – but it arrives on Switch in a disappointing state. Playing exclusively in docked mode, you'll be able to enjoy what's on offer here without any technical issues to hold you back, with developer Kylotonn making the necessary graphical sacrifices to keep everything moving at a solid 30fps. Honestly, if you're planning on playing docked only, feel free to stick another two stars on the score below.
