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 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.
While not unplayable, it is a shame that WRC 8’s fantastic gameplay has been tarnished somewhat by the control issues of Nintendo’s console. Perhaps with some tweaking and maybe a game update, the excellent handling of the other versions can make its way into this port. It would be a shame if it were left as it is, especially considering the quality of the PS4 version I played back in September. The Switch deserves better, WRC fans deserve better and honestly, KT Racing can do better.
