    First you have to know that this game has not yet been released, it is still in open beta phase! Metacritic staff, please correct this error.First you have to know that this game has not yet been released, it is still in open beta phase! Metacritic staff, please correct this error.
    To the game/beta itself:

    People complaining about arcade physics, too much understeer and alike should check two things: Are you driving in amateur mode? If so, switch to the "Get Real" mode. If you are using Get Real mode adjust the cars setup, it's up to you how your car behaves.
    For me physics are good, better than in previous Simbin titles.
    Graphics are decent but personally I would have wished for a bigger improvement compared to RACE07, it doesn't look as much better as I expected.
    The sound is great, just watch a replay, switch to a fixed camera and turn up the volume. You will hear the car all the way round the track, it's really impressive.
    There isn't much AI at the moment, but you can do a track test with 6 AI-drivers and supposedly they already use the "Adaptive AI" mode which does what it says, it adapts the AIs performance to yours.
    Leaderboard challenge is fun and allows you to challenge any other drivers ghost, which helps you improve a lot.
    There's already been a few challenges in some of which you could win prizes like Intel hardware or KW vouchers. You don't have to buy any content for challenges, you can participate even if you don't own the car used for the challenge, Try-before-you-buy challenges let you try a car for a limited time.
    There's still many things missing, a lot of which are going to be there when it's released. The biggest question mark for me is the pricing system. At the moment content is pretty expensive and there aren't discount packages. But I guess market dynamics will force them to make special offers once it's released.

    At the moment 8/10 for me cause it has got a lot potential.

    I just played this game for maybe one hour and I liked a lot especially car sounds. In my opinion it has the best car sounds I have ever heardI just played this game for maybe one hour and I liked a lot especially car sounds. In my opinion it has the best car sounds I have ever heard in racing games. Graphics also very nice, but you have just few tracks and few cars available. If you wanna buy more content, you will have to pay like 3 Euro for 1 car and 5 Euro for one track what's so **** expensive in the end. Expand

    This game seemed like a good idea in theory, but it's infuriating actually trying to play.

Mainly because it tries to nickel and dime you at every turn. I've spent thousands on my racing setup, I don't mind paying for a game. But let me just buy the damned game instead of trying to sell me every single car and track individually. To the developer: Make up your mind. If you want to make it "Free to Play", then at least include some actually useful free to play content. (One mediocre car on a boring track does not constitute 'Free to Play'). If you want us to pay for it... then provide an option to purchase the entire game in one hit. I have my credit card handy.... and I'm taking my money elsewhere. Collapse

    This game starts with a rather misleading claim from the CM marketing team: "Free to play." No way. Click on anything and you are asked forThis game starts with a rather misleading claim from the CM marketing team: "Free to play." No way. Click on anything and you are asked for real money. US$7 for a track (yes, one track is $7). US$2 for a car. Want to race the AI? More money please. Want 'Get Real' physics? Cough up. Multiplayer? Have your credit card handy. Most racing games have about 20 tracks and at least one type of car you can drive. That makes this 'free' game cost well over $100. There is one free fictional track and one or two cars. There's no free racing though, just free hot-lapping (which, to be fair, is quite good) along with a free leaderboard challenge (also good) and one or two other novelties.

    It's the upfront promise of 'free' that leaves a sour taste. This is a very expensive game that may turn out to be very good when its fully released. But don't be fooled by the marketing graduates at CM. Free, it aint.

After several minutes trying to understand one of the most confusing UI ever and driving a little bit with one of the little cars and circuit available, I realize that this is a game developed to make people spent money, not to make gamers have fun with a great simulation. It was like if I wanted to do anything a popup appeared asking me to pay. This is a real proof that freemium games are killing gaming. I had high respect for Simbin, but this was the most disappointing experience ever. 3 points for the sound and graphics. Expand

I got severely confused on what to do in the menu. When I finally got to drive, it is only time trials and no actual races, which got boring really quick with the unrealistic driving. Expand

I'm a Racing-Sim fan (and sports car driver) myself and I play several other titles wich i won't mention. Graphics are ok, so far the positive thing about this game. Besides the several bugs the game's F2P design is a bad, really bad, it's just a demo tbh. The feeling of driving is not good (compared to other titles), feel a bit "mechanical" and not "real" and the behavior of the car is wrong, not how it is IRL Expand
