Recent updates are very good with single player and multiplayer added. The graphics and driving are excellent. Try the free version, you can have a pretty good go with that, then maybe buy a favorite track ( Bathurst!) and a couple of cars and take it from there. The new GT Masters set is very good....WTCC is coming in a week!!
Still has bugs , but is getting really good. I'd recommend it to any driving sim fan.

DEFINITELY A NEW GAME UNDER MANY ASPECTS
After the big patch FFB is now solid, Multiplayer Alpha is lagless with 20+ cars on track, netcode is stunning (no cars take off to the moon if they've been hit by another car), the AI is "ok" (but still needs improvements), tracks updated with the Road Feel are now so much better to drive onto (because of the way new FFB and updated tracks interact), and the sound... well... WHAT A SOUND!!! TOTAL IMMERSION
There are so many good things under the hood about this game that I seriously hope it'll become more appealing and known to all the simracers out there. Despite the unclear, sometime shady and mind-boggling business model S3 has adopted, this game deserve and deserve a lot! Don't be intimidated by the cost of contents in the store. You don't have to buy EVERYTHING (even if the temptation is high!).
Set for yourself a budget, buy what you're really interested into and possibly wait for big discounts... they'll surely come.
Race on!

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!

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

Great free game. Lots of bad reviews by people that have played it for 20 minutes. This is a simulator and takes time to get the hang of. A lot of people are reviewing it as an arcade racing game. It isn't! It's a good place to start if you're used to racing games as it's free and there's nothing to lose if you dont like 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.

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...

Quite possibly the best feeling racer of the new wave of sims.

The pricing structure is odd, but S3 has restructured it to a reasonable level.

If you're a hardcore racer, download the base and buy a few cars and courses. You'll be hooked.
If you're looking for something arcadey, it's best you look elsewhere.
