This game is like a war vetaran; old and fragile, if a bit loony and outdated, but still has the capability to stab you in the face and kick you while you are down.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

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.

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.

High Quality Racing at a Low Price

Race 07 is an absolutely amazing racing simulator, for a cheap price too. Though this game was released in late 2007, It is still very relevant and challenges many new games that are released. I have not a single complaint about this game. I would even call it one of the best racing simulators on PC when all of the expansion packs are installed.

I actually received this game as well as the GTR Evolution Expansion as part of a Steam key giveaway a while back, but I can tell you that I would gladly pay double the price of the game because it is so good. I enjoyed it so much that I recently purchased the Mega Bundle that contains all of the expansion packs, which I definitely recommend you buy. I've already had hours of fun with this game, and I can assure many more are to come.

The physics are great, the AI is pretty decent, and I can't complain about the graphics. With a wheel, this game is even more realistic. There are dozens of preset controls for multiple wheels, including the G27 which I have been playing the game with. If you get bored of Single Player mode, there is always a multiplayer mode, which is still quite active for an older game. The drivers are sometimes sub-par, but you really get that in any online experience.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this game to anyone looking for a bit of fun. It has a cheap price, so there really isn't any reason to not buy it. I give it a 9/10.

Shortly after getting off of GTR 2 FIA GT Racing Game (wrote a review for it), this was the next game I attempted at, and by god this one is much better!

As I continued my urge to play some racing games, this one was next on the list of downloaded games. Coming right from GTR 2, this game is the exact same, but vastly upgraded and runs so much better. As I had previously stated in my last review, there was major graphical issues with it that straight up broke the game. This one I was able to go max settings and still run at 120 FPS smoothly. The menus were much easier to navigate as well. It only took me about 20 min to set up all my settings were the last one took an hour. The 1 music track is boring and turned off the music instantly.

I got in and did a few races and had a blast. I only experienced a few crashes trying to select a few cars, but otherwise no problems. One big thing that I strongly agree with is that this game supports mods! After finding a guide with links, I was able to add in 30+ cars and 70+ more tracks into the game!

This is a game that I plan on keeping on my PC for when I have more urges for a racing game. Strongly recommend if you like Racing Simulators!

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.

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!

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.
