IGN said "A restart from scratch for the WRC series, but does not leave a mark in the mud of the World Rally Championship." The official UK PlayStation Magazine said "Rough around the edges, yet with plenty of fun to be had." Game Informer said "While WRC 5 offers a decent experience, it lacks bite or any distinguishing characteristics."

The game reached number 10 in the UK retail sales chart, and number 10 in the downloads chart.[2][3]
