Race 07 Multiplayer Server Outage 16-12-2013

December 16th, 2013


Hi,

Unfortunately the Race 07 MP lobby server is getting old so we will try to move things to a new server. Things have changed a lot since these servers were set up so setting them up on new servers is a time consuming task.

Because of this, expect outages on the MP lobby server.

Absolutely incredible.

One of the best racing sims I have ever played, fantastic physics, graphics are a little on the dated side, but that doesn't really matter.

If you are interested in the game, get it, it's only $4, after all.

The amount of content you get with the base game is good, and all of the DLC is cheap and worth it.

Grade: A+

Race’07 is simply a must to any real sim racer’s library. It is quite simply the best touring car experience out there. I've put hundreds of hours into this sim, most of which doing competitive league and championship racing at Race2Play.com. The features and details this sim has to offer, especially at the time of its release, were second to none. Comprehensive tire model, very rich setup with (most) cars responding very well to the setup changes, best FWD touring car or similar experience to date, windscreen and visor bug splats/mud with helmets having tear-offs, lots of good add-ons (particularly Retro Expansion!) which gave a variety of cars and more tracks such as the entire Green Hell and a barrage of GT1 - GT3 content with the GTREvo expansion.

The GT car physics are sub-par, I'll be honest. GTR2 was much better for these and GTRE fails to exploit the same GT experience. The formula cars are kind of a hit and miss. You really need to dive into the setup to get these feeling correctly, but the FMaster and FRR are really fun when you do. Unfortunately the Formula cars in this game use GT car brakes! Grand Prix length events with the FRR, even with full brake duct and lower pressure, will overheat and destroy the brakes. Because they overheat at 600C like the GT brakes, instead of overheating at the F1 range of 1000C, which they can easily reach with higher ambient temperature and heavy brake-load circuits. Unfortunately having my brakes fail in two Grands Prix cost me a very prestigious drivers championship at R2P so I remain bitter about that flaw.

But all-in-all the setup depth and complexity and telemetry coming off the car, the amount of cars and the detail put into the individual physics for each (even model-by-model in classes!) is amazing, the detail of the tracks including the bumps and undulations of the surface make driving a F1 or GT1 car on the edge in league racing incredibly intense, and just.. yeah. It's a sim, not an arcade game. If you take the time to learn how to setup each car, push yourself to be consistent and drive it like a sim - drive it like you would a real car - setup your FFB to really feel the front suspension weight transfers this is a driving sim experience like no other!

This is a NOT an Arcade Racing Game, so check out the Demo first!
If You've played a lot of Need For Speed, You'll have a hard time trying to steer the cars.
Get a good Racing Wheel, and prepare Yourself for a lot of crashes and drifts ;D

Anyway, it's a great game, but it's kinda hard to find a decent server, that is not full with crashers/trolls.

So.. I wanted to try out the new Game suggestion beta thingy... And while I do this... Why not suggest that nice racing sim! I got it with a few addons and I really enjoy it! It has a lot of cars and a lot of tracks! Even the Nürburgring/Nordschleife, worlds most famous race track is included in one of the addons. I know the track IRL and except the environent the track is like... 1:1 :D
I play the game with a xBox 360 Wireless Controller and it handles really well! =)

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
