By itself the game is fun once you learn the car handling, but the online community is extremely hostile to you and anyone new to the game. You're new and don't quiet know how to handle it yet? Kick or Ban. You learn it and drive properly, not even being an crashing ♥♥♥? Kick or ban just because "free key". You wanna spectate the people better than you? NOOO!! Not to mention everyone just quits mid-races and it doesn't matter if they are in the first places or the last places, they just do it even if theres still 5 laps to go. Additionally, you can't join Games that are in progress of a Race so you end up racing against no one or your buddy given that quitting behavior.

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!"

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.

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.

Decent game/sim. Old graphics but still a fun race against friends. It gets my pick for a cheap LAN party game that will run on anyone's system. Solo, it's a little dry.

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.

Race 07 is Pretty simple racing game. It has a decent amount of content and features to keep Race fans interested, while being easy enough to learn to attract new faces. The game itself has visuals that many would consider "dated" but the gameplay still holds up to modern racing games. I enjoyed playing Race 07 enough to recommend it to anyone who is interested in a racing game. It is definitely worth a look.
