  1. Race On is a title that takes patience and dedication to master. It is not a title for the casual racer.
  2. 82
    RACE On looks dated, but the quality beneath the hood can’t remain hidden for long. For a budget price you’re getting probably the most realistic racing game on pc at the moment. It may not suit the big audiences, but race fans that haven’t gotten any of these titles, will indulge themselves in the many options this game offers.
  3. PC Gamer UK
    It's not bad value if you're new to Race 07, but is perhaps a raw deal for those who own the base game. [Christmas 2009, p.106]
  4. Total PC Gaming
    Hardened racing fans need Race On, though there's little to tempt part-timers. [Issue #27, p.57]
  5. Pelit (Finland)
    Simbin continues making money with almost 3 years old game engine, and it shows in everything. Graphics and physics are really old fashioned. Standards are set in much higher nowadays. Race On doesn't move sim fans, and looks too ugly to "race" with Forza Motorsport 3. Race On is not worth buying for full price. [Jan 2010]
  6. If you consider yourself "fairly interested" in racing and motorsport, you are probably better of with NFS:SHIFT or Race Driver: GRiD. But if you are a direct-injected, turbo-aspirated pedal-to-the-metal-Petrolhead, this might just be the perfect Racing-Sim for you... that is, if you don't already own GTR Evolution, which offers more content whilst not falling short in any other term.
  7. It's a solid game if you're new to Race 07, but is perhaps a simple deal if you own the base game.
  8. PC Zone UK
    Every vehicle n this package is an absolute dream to drive. [Jan 2010, p.72]
  9. This rock-solid Race 07 variant is a difficult game to wholeheartedly recommend, despite being superb in both single and multiplayer.
  10. Though it may show some ugly looks compared by of today's standards, when it comes to the highest levels of simulation, physics and playability, Simbin's 'Race On' simply delivers. Some may not like the steepy learning curve but this game is as close to reality as it can be.
  11. Race On is one of the best simulation racers, but Simbin should take a good look at their series and perhaps breathe some new life in it. There’s little change here and the game could use the option to damage your cars.
  12. 65
    Anybody can play Race On, but hardcore users will prefer other titles which are better simulations. It is fun but lacks too much in the visuals.
  13. PC Format
    Tired-looking. [Christmas 2009, p.88]
  14. LEVEL (Czech Republic)
    Too much too fast too same. Race On is maybe an acceptable add-on to the legendary Race – The WTCC Game but without the handful of new cars and tracks you end up playing the same game again. [Issue#187]

    A real race simulation with the great simbin engine
