I dont know how
thats possabble, but Shift made it happen.
Dont get me wrong if i want a relaxing Sim game Shift is the way to go.
But if you wanna talk real deal Sim racer? This game isnt for you. But if your new to the Sim racing games, Then this is the best place to start, its got a lot of the base mechanics and ideas there and down, but when you wanna use this data elsewhere your gonna have a bad time.
So what does this game get right?
Well for starters, The UI
Is just so simple to understand and its about you and the car. (unlike shift2's UI where it seems to be you and someone else's race?)
The car list is good.
The selection of tracks is meh, after about a week of play when you beat the game you'll find yourself wishing for a more challenging track.
The tuning section (i even made a guide about all the points of tuning in this game!) Is Really good even compaired to its console counterpart. (Gran Turismo, Forza)
What it gets wrong?
Handling, Cars feel "floaty" most of the time, leading to drifting and oversteer where you dont need it.
The AI can be unfair rarely
but it can be.Bottom line
If you wanna learn the ropes of a sim racer, get it, if your old to the type of game, then just buck-up and get Shift 2, or wait till "Project CARS" comes out.
