I've had this game a while and it is really enjoyable, especially with the Caterham Expansion pack, but there is a problem - since Windows upgraded itself to Windows 10 on my computer Race WTCC just wont start up anymore - the settings dialgue comes up but the game won't run. Oh dear - someone do something for us addicts please!

This game was released in 2006 and has better graphics and play value than the new Call of Duty games. Nice.

This game was once a great game. But now well......... Not so much. The interface or graphics which ever one you want to call it look old compared to my other games. Also the game is kind of limited. First of all there are only about three car brands. All the cars look the same and the only thing that's changed is the paint job and the number. Thee are also only like 10-20 tracks. Also if you have a wheel this game is not for you. I have a wheel my self and in my opinion it just does not feel right compared to my other racing games. There is also the fact that this game has not changed/been updated for about three years. They are many other things that are wrong with this game and I doubt that will change so really don't buy this game.:(

Had it since I was 5! It's a wonderful racing game but it will never replace GTR. I can't play GTR anymore though so this I guess just has to replace it.

This game is, at the very least, passable. It may not be fantastic, but it bears enough resemblance to games like forza and gran turismo to be a nice racing game. The fact that it's 89 cents makes it all the better.

Good game, certainly worth the $3. However I would recomend you don't make the mistake I made and purchace this instead of Race WTCC 07. That game basicly includes everything in this game plus another game, and also has a wealth of mods on the internet, including the excelent 2012-2013 mod. For only $1 more it's an amazing value, and I ended up just purchacing that one and uninstalling this, because there was nothing more this could offer. As a game though I would recommend it. It's a bit of a hardcore sim, so if you're used to Burnout or Need for Speed you may have some trouble adjusting. However for the money it's a good deal. Not on the level of a new Codemasters or Forza game, but still worth the money.

Totally worth the money.

- Good driving physics
- No Rubberband AI
- Good amount of tracks
- A lot of Settings for race rules and stuff
- Good graphics for a game released in 2006

Would buy it again.

Great racing game. Both realistic (quite simulator-like, if not an actual simulator), highly enjoyable (with assisting can be played as an sim-arcade) and challenging (AI reacting to your type of driving, learns your tactics on the track and adapts to confront it). Huge bonus - great graphics for a game made in last decade, AND is still fully capable to be played on lower end pcs/laptops (latter being my case). Enjoy the ride.

Great immersion, good graphics and awesome sounds... and absolutely fun to play! In the other hand, not much evolution compared to earlier Simbin games. Still no real-like rain and still too low damage sensitivity and too simple damage model. Two formula cars are welcomed add-on, however their drivability and grip feel should be better. I hope these formula cars are profecy of F1 racing game from Simbin in future. Again great game for sim veterans and normal players.

I just wanted to say this seems like a pretty decent game, its nothing like Forza or anything; but its one of the better racing games I have found on the PC so far, I would recomend it.

Suprisingly a great game, pretty realistic but changing gears takes a bit of getting used to
