Reviews

“There's the accessibility, and the way it's just as satisfying to play on a cheap pad as it is on an expensive wheel set-up; how the handling is translated sublimely through both. And what handling it is, spread out across a delicious range of thoroughbred racing cars: there are the DTM cars, with their downforce and low-slung lines, that only seem one step removed from the hi-tech of F1, or their WTCC cousins that bounce over kerbs with the kiddish enthusiasm of a go-kart.”
EUROGAMER

“The sounds, the looks, the feel, it all comes together to form something that is simply a high quality product. Whether you play only the free content, or you buy it all, there is no question that this sim is worth the download.”

Graphics are decent, sound is great.

Not free to play. Demo at best. Start with a few cars and a couple of tracks. No way to earn/unlock cars, tracks or liveries in game. Every thing must be bought with real money which would bring the price well over $100. This type of payment models are the worst. And the sole reason I don't recommend this game.

Very good racing sim. Playing with a logitech driving force gt and i get a very good force feedback from the car, you can really feal the track and the traction of the car. The physics are really good and the sound is just amazing. You get 3 cars and 1 or 2 tracks in various configurations for free, but the rest of the cars and tracks arent all that costly, even more when you compare it to iracing. I just got the WTCC 2013 pack, with 5 cars and 3 tracks for little more then 10euros and there are a lot of content in discount. A great bonus over other racing games where you need to buy cars is that in Raceroom you can try all the cars before you buy them, they let you get a few laps around a track to see if you like it. If you really like racing games you should try this game out, you will not regret it, besides its free to play, so just try it.

Great game, great feel, great tracks, AI gets harder the better you drive, only set backs are the cost of the game goes from free to over $200 Aus, although if they sell a package and you own part of what is in the pakage they discount it, the other problems are its unable to have any mods, and connecting to game server can take a life time or time out completely, get over these small down falls and the game is awesome to play, and most mates who see the unlocked version of the game, go home and install it.

Having initially dismissed Raceroom and in fact, being mostly unimpressed, I recently re-installed to give it another crack. Still being in Beta, I figured it was fair to.

I am rather surprised to say that it is genuinely superb and I always come away from Raceroom satified and my racing thirst quenched.

Genre-defining sounds (Really, they are the best sounds on any sim, anywhere), Genre-defining AI (again, really. Blows Assetto Corsa and rFactor 2 AI out of the water), Pleasant visuals, Intuitive handling, cracking FFB. Can't fault any of that.

I see some complain about the pricing of the addons. It's pretty reasonable, especially when compared to the liked of iRacing. Yesterday evening I purchased the DTM 1992 pack of cars and the European track pack. That's 5 very high quality, different vehicles with different strengths and 14 european circuits. I paid under £15 for this (admittedly with some discounts from prior purchases). This little lot would set you back right around the £100 mark, if not more on iRacing. Just throwing that out there.

Added to that you can try any car for free before you buy......

Highly recommend, great game and sim!

Purchased the game after just a few laps into the Free-to-play as I was hooked. The SOUND in this game is inspiring and almost as destructuve as being near a true performance vehicle. I play on an SLI EVGA 780 system and get wonderful SLI performance of 95% per GPU usage and the FPS never dips below an enjoyable level on surround (3 monitors).
The tracks are layed out similar to other racing games but in comparason to GT5 or GT6, Grid Autosport and the like you get a feel of taking a corner and fluffing the apex, braking too late or just destroying your engine with a lap in 1st gear if you enjoy playing realistic. Did I mention the SOUND! Graphical quality is top notice so learn the keyboard setting to adjust your seat height, distance from the wheel etc to suit your driving style. The AI is hard when you start and since I am still only 10 p[us hours into practicing, they just zoom passed me like I am stuck with the handbrake on. Did I mention the SOUND! If you can use a stereo sound system with a subwoofer you will be in Race Room heaven. Keep up the great work on devloping this game further and keep the large playing base glued to this game. BEST game I had never heard about.

Well, this is a pretty good game if you have some money to invest in. Great physics, great graphics, the only problem is that the cars as tracks are very expensive... But if you have the money...

This really is a top racing sim and its a shame it doesnt get the publicity it deserves. I think its problem is it gets lost in a sea of racing titles but this really is up there with the best. As of January 2015 it sets a benchmark in sim racing for sounds and probably AI as well, the physics are also superb.

You can download the base content for free which again is fantastic and there are add-ons which are sometimes on sale. Another great feature is leaderboard challenges where they give away prizes for the fastest times. A great addition to this is a lot of the time you dont need to have purchased the content to take part so you can try these before you buy.

Where this game is let down is by a few minor bugs but mainly its so unpopulated online its really a shame and can be tough to get decent races but i think that comes down to the lack of publicity it has had.

I cant recommend this strongly enough and as the base content is free its well worth trying it out

Ok this game had a bad start, but as it stands today it is a worthy followup to the famous Race '07 series.

Keep up the good work!

Great visuals, and Car Driving feel. Nice tracks and cars to choose from. and the controler support is welcomed. all cars feel as if they have there own charactoeristics. and track to cocpit, visual feedback is great. more so than any other games on the market. (have not played iRacing, nor will i ever) I have got all cars and tracks at sale prices only. I have saved 67% of the normal asking price for this game. and its worth every penny.

Love it.

People ♥♥♥♥♥ that you have to Buy content... How else do the Studios and Developers continue to make more Titles ??
Cheap content price for what you get.
Yes a few issues and bugs, but still coming along quite nicely.

Can get the ADAC GT Masters pack for under $10, I was able to purchase all Cars and Tracks for under $50

I for one and our leage will be running this in the future.

Definitely worth recommending! The graphics are very good and so are the driving physics. It's advertised as a "free 2 play" game, however most of the content is not. It doesn't mean that you have to buy it though. I love the fact that you can win a lot of stuff in competitions, full packs like DTM 2014 or ADAC 2014 or VRP which you can use to buy anything that is available in the game.
The game still lacks some features, for example weather changes or a proper career mode, but I believe that this will be changed sooner or later because we have already received a lot of updates, which improved the overall experience.

A really great game, MOST of the people, who gave bad reviews had played for just a couple of hours (sometimes even less), which is definitely not enough to get a real grip of the game.

This game is worth it to be called a Sim and Racing Experience ! and it's free to play (race)
but you really need a steering wheel, before i got my G27 it was unplayable, but now with it it's totally awesome... it feels realistic, the sounds are great force feedback is good and so on... unbelieveable that this game isn't in it's final stage

FINALLY! A game with the feeling of the old TOCA series! Cars that react to small bumps in the road instead of driving on tarmac textured glass which all today's big name games feel like.

From GTR2 to Race07 to this, SimBin (Now sector 3) has produced some of the best racing sims out there. Yes this was a bit of a handfull when it was released but as its been develloped, its been refined and polished into a fantastic sim, that allows for a ton of on and offline racing fun. With added DLC (optional) you can race a ton of cars and tracks (my personal favs are the DTM and WTCC cars).

If you have played their older titles, try this one out, it may not be perfect but its still a ton of fun!
