“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.”

“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.”

I suppose after 250 hours I should post a review. I race with a Logitech Momo wheel and triple 1920x1200 monitors with a nVidia GTX680.

This is the best racing simulation at the moment because:

1. Realistic physics
2. Excellent sound
3. Excellent force feedback
4. Plenty of cars to choose from - I recommend purchasing at least one of the following Experience packs: DTM201x, ADAC GT Masters 201x so you get a good set of cars/tracks and then add DTM1992 and Group 5 packs later.
5. Single player has the Experiences, Custom Championships, Competitions and Leaderboard challenges to keep things interesting.
6. Multiplayer has dedicated server and allows for large fields. Of course who you race with determines if it's fun or not. For the most part the online racing is pretty good and active during the mornings in North America and during the evenings in Europe. Do not use the free-content races as a gauge on whether the racing is any good. I avoid free-content races.

To get the best deal when starting:

1. Grab a vRP package from the online store: http://www.raceroomstore.com. You will get a code to redeem in the Store portion of the game. Click the [v] button beside the vRP amount then Redeem Code.
2. Only buy one pack at a time because you get discounts when new packs have tracks/cars you've already purchased. For example DTM2015 only cost around $10 USD if you already have DTM2013 or DTM2014

So what's bad about it? You can't save different setups.

The most under-rated racing simulation on the market, yet in my opinion one of the best with the potential to be even better.

Raceroom Racing Experience (better known as R3E) has improved immeasurably over the past year or so. No longer a featureless hot-lapper as it was in the first early years, R3E has experienced a turn-of-direction toward a proper racing simulation. Developers Sector3 -formerly Simbin - are trying to build a simulation worthy of its forebears - the GTR and RACE series. R3E is steadily but surely becoming what we all hoped GTR3 would be. It's still got some way to go and many core features are yet to be implemented, but R3E is on the right path.

R3E has a good mix of approachability and realism. There is something here for casual racers and simulation enthusiats alike. Content is focused on purpose-built race cars, predominantly touring cars and GT racing (with open-wheel and endurance content to come), and in this field R3E is peerless. If you want road cars and supercars as per Gran Turismo and Forza it's best to look elsewhere. Track content is also exceptional both in number and quality. Online racing is pretty stable and offline features pretty decent AI with an adaptive feature that matches the CPU controlled cars to the player's pace for a good challenge every time. The real highlight of R3E is the audio - it's the benchmark, as simple as that. I cannot be understated how much good sound adds to the immersion of a racing sim. Sector3 clearly understand this. It's brilliant,

A little more on the 'free-to-play' aspect - it's not really F2P in the traditional sense. There is a very small selection of free cars and tracks with almost no scope to unlock new content or credits by playing, although parts of the game can be played for free such as hot-lap competitions. It's a modular game where the user can buy exactly the content they like rather than paying for a whole game or DLC packs. I think it works well.

To summarise, R3E is something of a hidden-gem, worthy of any sim-racer's time. It's a project that's only going to get better. It's certainly my go-to sim.

Like some people say on other reviews this can be considered just a demo of a overpriced game but for free you get:
-some free cars
-2 tracks with different settings and time of day
-simulator like experience
-good sounds
-okay graphics

so I can't really complain imo
I just wish it wasn't needed to download 17GB to just play the free content....

This game could EASILY have become the best sim racing game on steam but is completely ruined by its terrible paywall system that they have. The visuals are very pleasing to the eye and the physics and sound add up to it to make the game feel like a very high end sim. Sadly the microtransation hell that Sector 3 has come up with really ruined the perfect opportunity to make the best racing sim for racing fans to enjoy.

Its very depressing because RACE '07 and GTR 2 were both excellent iconic simulation racing games. Maybe if they had followed the path of their previous games, RaceRoom wouldve been a simulator far better than Assetto Corsa or rFactor2 could ever be

but no matter what i say, this is gonna get downvoted to hell because fanboys cant take having their beloved software being judged and thats absolutely pathetic


Graphics and Visuals = 9.5/10

Sound Design = 10/10

Physics = 9/10

Menu and UI = 7/10

DLC and Microtransaction Usage = 2/10

Overall Score = 7.5/10

Raceroom is an excellent simulator but cannot be recommended due to how much you have to invest to actually enjoy its content.
