  • Summary: In addition to many other tracks, players of GTR Evolution will drive the modern version of the monumental track of Nürburgring Nordschleife along with the Nürburgring GP layout. Dubbed "The Green Hell" by racing legend Jackie Stewart, the track is revered and feared as the most difficult and treacherous track ever built. GTR Evolution for PC comes with 22 GT car models in 3 different classes plus a selection of exclusive production cars. Further to this SimBin adds WTCC Extreme, tuned concept cars based on the FIA WTCC cars. [SimBin] Expand

    Evolution evolves the series, and it does so wonderfully. I suspect a future follow-up will involve a complete overhaul, but until then, GTR Evolution -- and Nordschleife in particular -- is where every good driver should be.
  2. GTR Evolution is a fine addition to SimBin’s repertoire of driving sims, offering some great features and unrivaled tracks for fans of authentic racing games.
  3. GTR Evolution is a great racing simulator that is very realistic and a great game with all the right features and realism you could ask for. GTR Evolution has tracks made from real world sites and plenty of real cars for an overall well made game.
  4. In the proper hands, the game can be a breeding ground for racing bliss. GTR Represents racing simulation realism at its absolute best, even if that means it sacrifices accessibility and broader appeal for general gamers.
  5. GTR Evolution is definitely an evolution of the series, as opposed to a revolution, and while the game is in need of a graphical overhaul, the rest of the game is all you could ask from a racing simulation.
  6. Swedish developer SimBin is definitely the top of the crop when it comes to realistic driving simulators and this is no exception. As the name implies GTR Evolution is a evolutionary add on for last year's RACE 07 and what you're treated to here is a wealth of new cars and a new course, but not just any course. Nürburgring Nordschleife is fully modelled and available in the game which alone makes this a great add on for driving fans everywhere.
  7. As usual from SimBin – GTR Evo is stunning driving experience. Owners of Race 07 should think twice before buying this game – many parts were “recycled” from the previous game. [Oct 2008]

    I've tried them all and GTR Evo sounds the best and performs like a sim should. I like the graphics in the new F1 2010 but it still feels like an arcade to me. I like GTRE so much that I put two Radeon 5870's in crossfire to get the graphics and game play at full tilt. IMHO there's nothing that compares to this game to date! Expand

    The GTs are king of dull here compared to GTR². But it's still enjoyable thanks to the nurburgring circuit.

    Started to make
    Simbin appear to think of their its loyal customer as cash cows... Making this addon a full priced game at first. Hopefully they now solved this by giving everything as possible addon for RACE07.

    Top notch in league racing.
