I am talking about this game after playing GTR 2.

As for this game, this game is very well developed, the car handles perfect and the tweaking system of the cars is even more beneficial than ever before(previous updates)

The number of cars in the game is few but we cannot easily forget the modding scene regarding this game. As for me, a friend of mine gifted this game to me. I got the extreme edition including RACE 07 DLC, RACE 07 and GTR Evolution. Due to all the three contents, the selection of cars and tracks increased a lot. Addition of Nurburgring(Track) via GTR Evolution was must since every racing game is considered incomplete due to it's absense.


As for the ingame physics, the game is far better than Need For Speed franchise which emphasizes on ultra quality graphics and High end cars rather than ingame physics. Cars handles and feels realistic and the engine sounds are very similar to the ones in real life.


Because this is an old game, the multiplayer lobby mostly remains empty but if you are lucky, you will find a server with 15-14 players.


Don't hesitate to buy it, the amount of ingame content is anormous and the modding community is still growing at an amazing rate. Cars, tracks feels lively.


Buy this game and if you own any steering wheel controller for pc, it will act as chocolate syrup over the existing cake.

Go on, buy it :D

Thank you all for reading, and thanks to my friend for gifting me this :D

Yes,this game is a masterpiece.

Here are the main things that impressed me:


First of all, the multiplayer is really awesome. People still play it and lag doesn't ruin the experience in case you were worried. You can race fine even with a few high ping players rushing to the finish line.
Second of all, Race 07 features an impressive physics system that makes each car handle differently. This is as close as a driving sim can get. Even more,the cockpits look phenomenal,adding to the whole driving experience. Last thing I will mention is the weather system changing the game's difficulty: rain plays a big role when racing,so with each turn there comes a risk,with each movement your car could slip.
Even so,for casual gamers,Simbin Studios added the option to play this game in a more relaxing manner. Each "safety" system of your car cand be turned on or off,so for casuals,this is a welcome feature.

Now,about the things that didn't age so well:

See,the graphics in this game are a bit dated,but don't let that fool you! It's not a deal breaker. Sure,a few updated car models and textures would've been better,but Race 07 is far from being unplayable regarding this department.
The sound is still great for this time,even if the other cars don't sound that well compared to yours.


This is basically it,your daily driving experience. Trust me,this game will not gather dust on your steam library. Personally I play it daily because it truly feels like I'm driving a real car, and there are many real life players who run the tracks every day.

If Race07 is not your type,then you could try other arcade focused games like Grid 2.

I can't believe this game is as old as it is. It's physics engine still stands up to comparison with most of the modern driving simulators and there is still an online community organising regular races. As long as you get yourself a decent wheel and pedals to play with then this game is a fantastic introduction to proper driving sims.

Is it good YES!
Should you buy? NO! There are numerous standalone expansions to this game that contain all of this content and are equally cheap

If you like competing against your own best times (just you and the car) then GT Legends has more interesting cars.

But if you want to Race against other cars and trade some paint then this game is THE one.
It has fantastic AI and you will never be trapped in races that are too easy or too hard since it lets you fine tune the difficulty settings yourself.

It's best experinced with a wheel but is more gamepad/keyboard friendly than most, just keep in mind that it is going to feel more klunky with a keyboard than Need for Speed or even Forza
