More of a rallying moan than a cry

While I do agree with several of your points, I disagree with your conclusion.

Sure, WRC 3 feels like a pretty empty game, and there really isn't much to find here except pure racing. Simple menus, no story mode and a pretty crappy sound track. Some might find that kind of dull, but sometimes I prefer it that way. It's about getting your rally car to dance through the corners and slide perfectly around hair pins - shaving seconds off your stage times.

You mention NFS:MW as a better alternative, and while I have only played that game on Xbox 360 (and liked it ok), I find it a bit too "noisy". There is little focus on actual driving, and more on just messing around in something vaguely related to real cars.

While the physics in WRC 3 aren't superb, they are vastly improved over the previous to WRC games on pc, ps3 and Xbox 360 (which were utter crap). The handling feels fairly realistic, and for a rally fan or fairly hard core racing fans, I reckon WRC 3 on Vita is a must have.

Turn off all the assists and it's a pretty darn good rally game. Give it a couple of stages of practice and you should be able to fight your way to the top of the lists.

The on-line multi player is a lot like the "career" mode, except you're racing against other players, plain and simple. After having completed the rally championship in all three classes of cars you'll probably be about done with single player. You can still try and get a few of the trophies in single rally or single stage events, but you'll most likely want to go on-line and race real people - it's a bit more challenging that way.

All in all; Sure it's a pretty stripped down (and cheapish) game, but it has nice physics and fairly realistic handling. For a racer that really should matter more than all the fancy stuff other racing games have put into them to hide the fact that they're not really that good at the racing part.
