5 reasons you shouldnt play/download this game
-"FREE TO PLAY": You get 3 free cars and 2 different tracks, but there is a lot of content which you are unable to access unless you pay it, you have to pay for each thing you want, tracks, cars, modes, so you are very limited to play only 2 tracks.
-9gb of waste: You find out that those 9gb are the content you cannot play unless you pay for it, and well, that would cost a lot overall to pay for everything.
-Animal driving: The way you drive the car is too stiffed, you'll end up turning so hard or going very...very slow to make sure you just dont overturn.
-No way to earn Virtual money inside the game, since all of the content must be payed, this might have helped a lot, even if winning rate is so slow
-It sucks, personally not even an hour of playing and already found is a total scam for being Free to play

The graphics are great, the physics feel authentic and there's no question that a lot of work went into making this a high-quality racing sim. The business model is sketchy (at best) and resembles EA over the last few years--- free games are probably around to stay, but excessive microtransactions don't have to come with them. I'd gladly pay $20 for unlimited access to all of the content in the game--- or $40 if it included community-creation tools. Just my two cents: proceed with extreme caution.

Now with Multiplayer!
This game has one of the best netcodes I have ever seen in a racing game. Racing online feels almost like racing offline against real people, no lag, no warping and no strange collision clipping... with 24 drivers. Of course this is only true if everybody has a decent internet connection. Even the best netcodes can't fix slow/broken internet :p

Even with only the free content it's a lot of fun but the game encourages you to buy more. The price of the content is okay, not too expensive but not cheap too. Tracks and cars are on sale from time to time and now with the addition of content packs you could get some bargains. I for one don't need any car and track because I have my facourites which I want to drive. Buying them costs less than other sims. Especially with rFactor 2 and iRacing which both need subscriptions to play them online.

With the 3 physics levels (Novice, Amateuer, Get Real) there is one level for everyone from total beginner to simpro.

paid same price as any other game $50 worth of RP, unlocked all content when on sale. i advised all my gaming friends to hold off till discounts then buy all the content. the game gets discounted about 3 times a year.

its pretty much the best simbin game while we wait for gtr3
best graphics & best sounds so far. best bathurst track -better than mod
assetto is catching up with the graphics but not the sound yet.

looking forward to when its finished
cant wait to play multiplayer with friends online with this one
still playing GTR2 & GTL multiplayer while i wait.

if your a simbin fan, this is a great game -way better physics than race 07, pretty much as good as gtr2
the game should be marked as EARLY ACCESS as its an ALPHA with full costing implemented

they do give u 5 good free cars but if your unsure about this game then buy the minimum RP and unlock your favourite track
(mine are bathurst or mid ohio) and do some laps in each car and you will decide if you like it or not. i couldnt recommend the free track they give you, its pretty crap to test the game on. the free hill climb is better.

dont buy the game unless your a sim freak and have atleast a logitech g25/g27 or better -its not an arcade game and expect to spend an hour getting you controls right so you get the most out of it. then you will be rewarded.

hurry up simbin, finish this game!!!

Only Singleplayer/Hotlapping. Expensive Cars and Tracks. Old Graphics (Race07) with brighter Colours. Only the sound saves this "game" for total collapse. Just another F2P Title which is here to milk out their costumers.
