    Fantastically versatile Project CARS entertains both champions and festive drivers. It excites them with helpfulness, technology and dynamism, so only details could be reproached. [Issue#253]

    The result of many years of work meets expectations and ranks among the best representatives of the genre.

    Project CARS is going to give some of the bigger racing games a run for their money. There is depth, detail and fun to be had with this game. It certainly was worth the wait.

    A great racing simulator with a huge amount of cars, tracks, and options to customize. While newcomers might not appreciate the heavy-handed driving aids or get overwhelmed by the staggering number of things to experience, it's worth the commitment.

    To enjoy that game, you have to forgive incomplete or poorly implemented features, and make your peace with the evil AI. They’re small problems, in the scheme of things, and they don’t spoil a great drive. But they’re just enough to deny Project CARS what could have been a clean pole position.

    Simply put, this is one of the better racing games out there.

    Only those who are really into realistic driving simulators may flock towards Project Cars, although they might get bored easily considering there really aren’t any unique game modes either. It carries a sense of realism in spades, but there isn't much under the hood.

    Don't believe the children complaining about this game. I have played almost every driving sim out there and I love this game. There isDon't believe the children complaining about this game. I have played almost every driving sim out there and I love this game. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the handling (and I'm using a cheap controller), in fact it feels and drives damn realistic when without the crappy hidden assists as in other games! I also love the fact that you can adjust your seats height, angle etc. to suite your own needs. The views and damage models are a major plus for me and looks incredible. (when compared to the crappy viewpoints and damage models of sims like Gran Turismo 6) The graphics are amazing and I prefer this any day over Forza and GT. Expand

    The Long awaited SIM-Racing Title for me...

    Graphics are phenomenal, and you really forgot that your sitting at home in your chair!

    It gives nothing better than battling for your Position in a whole Race.

    You have to drive carefully, because every failure can lead to Damage or loosing your Position.
    Fully working Pit-Stops, Pit-Stop Strategy etc. etc.

    But that's not all! The Game will be supported from SMS until the next 2 Years!

    So for all Racing-Enthusiats a definitly MUST Buy.

    *Yes, there maybe some BUGS BUT it's the most polished Game since a Long Time for me!

    This game can be looked at both ways really.

    Amazing graphics, (nuff said).

    Challenging, yet rewarding handling. Or, challenging to the point of severely frustrating. If you're not into realism then having to repeatedly tap the accelerator or use manual transmission to avoid spinning out will just piss you off. Plus, while the cars certainly do go incredibly fast, the speed you need to pull off a lot of the tight turns feels like you're a snail stuck in mud. Not very epic. But realistic.

    Highly in-depth customization as far as tire pressure, force feedback, pit stop strategies, etc. But... if you're like me you just don't care or have any inclination to fine tune stuff like your brake duct.

    Everything is unlocked. Awesome! Unless you like unlocking stuff...

    The game is meant to be played clean, but it's perfect for playing dirty. It doesn't take much to spin someone out or simply ram them from behind into some obscure oblivion off the track. And no one is better at it than the AIs. Sure, it's unintentional, (I think). But when you're cutting tight turns on the inside and you're constantly surrounded by 13 AI cars. Well, one of these turns you're going to be spinning in circles while cussing at your TV. The simplest solution to this is to master a track, come first in the qualifying round and proceed to first place your way around the track as if no one else is on it. But then, why bother playing with any AIs on it? Don't get me wrong, it's perfectly feasible to pull off some clutch breaks through the ranks. Just saying though. When one bad spin out, caused by a rear ending AI screws you over for the rest of the race it kind of sucks.

    Lots of maps. Lots of cars.

    Bottom line though is. Unless you're really into the style of driving this game gets stale pretty quick.

    No way to change wheel settings while in a race so when you change from Karts to any other type you will have to restart the current sessionNo way to change wheel settings while in a race so when you change from Karts to any other type you will have to restart the current session in order to test your wheel settings.

    It is a beautiful game with little variation and depth, the career has no monetary system and got old fast so this rating is based on the online experience.
