New WRC video game gets thumbs-up from rising star Breen

Rising young rallying star Craig Breen has given a big thumbs-up to the official new WRC FIA World Rally Championship video game, developed by Milestone Studios.

The son of a national Irish rallying champion, Breen is one of the most highly-rated prospects around at present, and at just 20 years of age, he appears to have a bright future ahead of him indeed. That being the case, he was ideally-placed to join leading energy drinks brand Kick Energy in promoting WRC FIA World Rally Championship at TRAX at Silverstone last month.

“My first impression of the game's graphics and visuals and basics is that they look really good,” the County Waterford native told Crash.net. “There's an interesting variety of cars and stages – some of which I've driven before. I got to drive some of the other drivers' cars too, which was pretty cool! I'm sure I'm going to spend quite a bit of time playing it...”

WRC FIA World Rally Championship has been published by Italian company Black Bean Games, and Breen – who took visitors on a series of exhilarating, edge-of-the-seat rides around the celebrated 'Home of British Motor Racing' at TRAX, the country's biggest event for all performance and modified cars – reckons it will attract a far-reaching audience.

“It's good to have a World Rally Championship game back on the shelves after a long absence,” he enthused. “It's naturally going to be orientated around rallying fans, but I'd like to think it will be accessible to anyone. It's quite easy to play, so I think it will have a wide appeal. Black Bean Games have really hit the nail on the head with this one. Would I recommend it? Absolutely.”
