    Another great game from the daddy of racing games. I much prefer this to GTR. slightly more forgiving and engaging race game.

    Finally something to even consider playing after GT 4's brilliance!

    Excellent, door-to-door racing full time. This sim is a blast and a great way for people new and experienced to enjoy the sport of Simracing.

    Good fun, drives well, easier to stay on the track than GTR2 but harder to win as the cars are less powerful. AI cars in multiplayer which GTR2 doesn't have.

    Certainly the best game I've ever played. Sad that it includes a few bugs, too, and that the hardware requirements are so high. Those two facts prevent Race from getting 10/10.

    May be not enough cars and tracks, but great feeling in multiplayer sessions are the best I've seen for a long time and for European gamers its best. 27 dollar are just 20 euro. Thats less then the half of a full price game.

    Amazing game overall, almost real physics, essentially the front wheel drive alternative to GTR 2 (well, the RWD cars are also good..). Captures the real race atmosphere very well, the best sound of every racing game so far and very good graphics that would only benefit from a SM 3.0 patch. Not a real load for a decent PC.

    It's not 10 because of models who are not so perfect, and you need strong machine to play it I full graphics! Also few bugs make it to be 9! Otherwise everything else is great, physics and filing are very, very good! Maybe some next version will be 10! Cheers...

    Overall a great representation of a good close racing championship, decent graphics good driving/physics model bettered only by the sound, good for newcomers and racing sim experts alike.

    Awesome game, especially playing it online, the tightest and most fun online racing I have ever experienced, a well deserved full score, could have had a career funcion though to make single player weigh some more, but apart from that, a real jewel.

    If you want intense and close racing - look no further than this. Awesome? No. Brilliant? No. The best there is!

    It's just a great game! RWD is so real as FWD to! Once more, great game!

    Very nice Eye Candy for the Sim-Racing World...Only draw back in my opinion is not enuff cars, and completely Un-Modifiable.

  1. While there's still a decent driving model underneath, it's hard to see RACE appealing to fans who've driven Simbin's other titles, and so, this time at least, the hare comes out on top. [Jan 2007, p.87]

    There are times when - beaten by twitchy analogue controls, insufficient feedback and maybe just a sheer lack of hardcore skills - it can feel like a dispassionate sim rather than an affecting, involving game. [Jan 2007, p.90]

    While it's nowhere near as theatrical as "GTR2," there's a solid core of tight, exciting racing and impressive physics here. [Jan 2007, p.56]
