It absolutely does not metter because this game is released 2007 i give it 20/10 ( lol )

why ?
It's a simulation
It's one of the best simulation i have played so far
Everithing feels right when i play it
It's good optimized ( sure it's old engine of the graphic "dx9" but still avesome )
Never got any lags or problems
AI drives like humans do , fast , agressive but they doing mistakes to , it's nice to see when they spin out of a track the same way and for the same reason like you can spin out = Balanced
There are so much Racing Track's and Cars to select and race them , but the best is , you can find on several websites Fan made customized tracks and cars for free , most of them look's much better than the original game tracks / cars.

It's compatible with a lot tipes of steering wheel and with a nice settup , full enjoyable with a Xbox 360 Gamepad.

Recommended
If you like a simulation , and you don't care so much about a "new un-optimized graphic engine like they have nowday's , where you constantly crash becouse the game is not optimized good and you get a micro lag by driving on 300 km / h " then this game is definatelly worth the cheap price to have it in your collection.

I Definatelly Recommended.

Make sure you at least have a controller that can be plugged in to your computer. Otherwise you're going to have a bad time accelerating, braking, and turning.

Like the game says you're going to have to accelerate/brake lightly majority of the time, and you can't do that with a keyboard. If this was an arcade racing game, it would be different.

Game: "Dude, you have to do stuff with finess. Here's your chance, turn left lightly."
Keyboard: "LEFT!"

I used to play GTR2, then I tried this as it is the secuel of the previous, it didn't attract me at the begining, but then I purchased the expansion: GTR evolution, I strongly recomend you to try if you are looking for racing simulator.

Diferences between GTR 2 and RACE 07: in GTR 2 the car seems more light, more difficult to control, the game charges much faster even if not optimized for parallel computing. RACE 07 is a bit more easy to handle, making it more accessible to everyone, the graphics would say are a bit better, not big difference, just fine for a racing simulator. This are the main differences, the rest is the same, a great Simbin creation.

This is the game that made me fanatical about sim racing.

IMO, Race07 + the expansion packs is still the most feature complete racing game on the market now.
An outstanding variety of cars and tracks, and awesome server control for online racing.
The physics, sound and FFB are still on par with many of the new generation of racing titles.

Badass.

I've played for years and it is absolutely the best racing simulation out there.
Well optimized, I've never suffered any stutter or lag whatsoever.
Graphics may not be absolutely cutting edge by todays standards, but there is certainly not anything lacking in the visual department. ( The actual game looks much better than the promo videos, believe me ) I do find that user made skins available at mod sites generally look superior to the stock car skins.
Cars have excellent physics and feel, controller set-up is easily customized to suit your style of controller and play, car setups can be finely tuned with many many variables which accurately mirror real-world tuneability. Alternately, pre-configured set-ups are available online.
There are a huge number of different cars and tracks to suit any skill level or particular interest, Everything from high-downforce open-wheel racing, to touring cars, minis, etc etc. I prefer the vintage sports cars myself, the Retro pack with GT Legends mod brings me back to the golden years of vintage sports car racing.
The modding community is still very active, there are too many user made cars, tracks, skins, and effects mods to list, which add a lot to the game, and are not very difficult to install and run.
In summary, if you are a racing enthusiast and you don't have this game, you are really missing the boat. Don't expect any "yo dude, that was so gnarly" as in, say, DIRT2. What you are getting here is pure racing, and nothing but. At this price, you're stealing it. So get it, and drive it like you stole it.

Is it easy? No. Are you going to jump right into the most powerful car and dominate the competition? No. This is not an arcade game, it's a simulation. There is a learning curve. You may learn that you actually suck, at first anyways. Ever watch racing on television and think; "hey I could do that no problem"? Here's your chance.

Think you're fast? Find out.

This game is like a war vetaran; old and fragile, if a bit loony and outdated, but still has the capability to stab you in the face and kick you while you are down.

8.5/10

Hmm what to say about this. Now do take mention that this game is started to show its age. Its an amazing racer, the standard content is greater but the community really made it shine, there are thousands of mods for this game so you can have a car count which rivals that of even behemoths like granturismo. honestly there could be moments where you are just messing around looking at the different cars instead of actually racing. The online community has gotten a lot more bitter since this game was given away for free.

For the price tag you will struggle to get better bang for buck, maybe from gtr2 but personally i prefer this to the gtr series and the layout seems to be more friendly

Anyways remember that this is a sim racer so spinning out, blood and tears will be things that you will encounter from time to time and there is a learning curve, some will enjoy that while others will headbutt a wall.

The graphics are dated as it came out in 2007, the main problem is that the anti-aliasing sucks big time. If you have a nvidia card throw that DSR on and downsample from 4k. Amds VSR works in a similiar way but as of this review it works only with the 290 series which is a shame as i have a 7870 xt.

The bottom line is that this great while great is started to lose its touch, the newer games of the racing world namely Assetto corsa, Iracing, Rfactor 2 and maybe Game stock car are the kings, they have great physics but also have great graphics and many believe that Assetto corsa will take the crowd and be the spiritual father of Race 07.

If you want a great racing game but are strapped for cash this is a uncanny deal, if you are balling and want to make it rain, get Assetto corsa.

One of the best and complete racing simulation ever. I just think it's unecessary to create library entries for all those DLCs pointing for the same game.

Can I just say, with a steering wheel and pedals, this is possibly my favourite racing game ever! 10/10!
With a sterring wheel I thought I was either there in the race or at the arcades playing one of the games there which are racing. I tried it without the wheel so I used the keyboard, it wasn't as good but I still enjoyed it the same. Get this game!

One of the best things going for this game is the replay capabilities (being able to save a race to watch later as well as automatically retaining best laps at each track). However it has not really aged well, with the graphics really looking dated by 2014 considering the other racing options out there. However it is a lot of fun to race, with multiple tracks, championships and vehicles to choose from.
