bit of a thread resurrection but I've just re-downloaded this after reading up on the real life WRC and am just as useless as it as I was when I bought it... I've tried a handful of the cars and each one feels light and over responsive, on a keyboard.
Any quick tips to get the car handling a little less twitchy, say on a gravel surface race to start off with?
I hold my fingers up as probably just crap at it though.
It's definitely more challenging than most games. I don't know your skill level in driving games, but my guess why you find it twitchy and oversensitive is that you're going too fast. Try driving the course slower until you get the feel of the track and then speed it up. First time I drove it I was HORRIBLE at it, I redid the same track a dozen times and I surprised myself how much faster I got. You'll likely have to be more subtle on the controls than with other games.
I also find it faster to cancel and restart if I have a couple of bad corners, especially early on.
