With its move to Unreal Engine 4, developer Codemasters once again diversifies its use of engines across its racing titles. EA Sports WRC is an excellent rally experience backed by the team’s own handling model and physics – and yet something is amiss.

And even PC appears to be facing issues on Unreal Engine, with shader compilation stutters.
