I was until I saw the car list.

I'm sure it's a great game but I'm not paying full price when I'd only be interested in driving a handful of the cars.

Did a European company develop this game? Because the lack of American cars on that list is actually kind of laughable. It's like they forgot North America existed, even the Fords are mostly Euro-spec models.

Hell there aren't even Asian cars. No GT-R or even an LF-A but the Evo gets put in? Yeah this game isn't worth anywhere near the initial asking price.

How are you going to have a Mustang, and not at least include a Camaro. maybe a challenger...a corvette. some kind of other muscle car. lol

I love me some McLaren 12C though.

Yea I noticed that as well. I get every car game though, so will give it a fair chance.

The online player mode is suppose to be awesome though.





Your Driver Network Profile tracks many stats relating to your Experience, Focus, and Affinity. But it also tracks your Online Performance and Reputation...

  • The number of races entered vs the number completed
  • Breakdown of placement in those races
  • Pole positions achieved in online qualifying sessions
  • Average finishing position and average qualifying position
  • The number of races where you incurred no penalties
  • And the number of races where you were disqualified

All this information is then used to ensure you find players of similar skill and conduct. Continually collide with other drivers and you'll slowly make acquaintances with others of similar destructive tendencies. Drive with good sportsmanlike conduct and you'll be enjoying the company of other refined opponents.

So play fair, be successful, and greatness awaits.

I'll pick it up at some point this summer, hopefully they'll have added cars by then.

Drivers Network Championship looks cool too:

The SMS-R Driver Network Championship is an in-game virtual racing season searching for the fastest Project CARS drivers from around the world.

Consisting of a series of rounds that coincide with real-life motorsports events occurring on weekends throughout 2015/2016, the aim of each round is to set the fastest lap time on the leaderboard before it expires with points then being awarded for leaderboard positions.

This game has some serious steering issues. I would wait to get it until they have been worked out. They have acknowledged the issues and are working on patches from what I've read.

Basically non-drivable at the moment.

I read that there is a bug that all steering wheels aren't working as intended. Does the controller work though?

I read some reviews on this, and that the simulation is really bad at high speeds. Could be the steering issue, or just a bad simulation.

Won't be buying mainly because Chevy Corvette isn't even represented.

Currently, been using iRacing as my driving sim.

"Lotus 49 Cosworth"

That's the Lotus 49 powered by the Ford/Cosworth 3.0L naturally aspirated DFV, or "Double Four Valve". The DFV was made by essentially mating two 4 cylinder engines at the crankcase.

The DFV debuted in the Lotus 49 in 1967 at the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort. Jimmy Clark won the race with it, as well as three others Grands Prix that season. It put out about 400 bhp, not gross hp like US cars were rated in at the time. Mighty 3.0L.

The Lotus 49 was notable for making the engine part of the chassis, and the DFV was notable for winning 155 out of 262 races between '67 and '85: 59% of the races it was entered in.

Clark, almost certainly Monza, 1967:

Hill 1967, I don't know what track:

Clark airborne at the Flugplatz, Nurburgring 1967. This was not uncommon. The cars didn't have seatbelts:

Its a fun game But the motion blur does go a bit overboard for me i need to see if i can turn it off or something cause it can be distracting. So far the driving feels pretty real cause when i went to regular karts to supercarts that have wings and downforce u can feel the grip when the downforce is making the kart stick to the road its neat. But i wish they did a lil more with Career mode as if all i am doing is waiting till the end of seasons and seeing what contracts for what series and race team to race for if i do well or not.

So that is kinda like rinse and repeat no matter the series your in. But the racing is fun and u can make it extremely hard to win a race. But i feel this game is more for the gearhead who like to tweak the car to their race and feel to be comfy and not more for people who just want to race and stuff.

Downloaded the latest update and made some suggested changes to the controller setup and the issues steering with controller now seem to have been resolved.

Absolutely loving it now.
