    With Project CARS, Slightly Mad Studios brings us the first great racing simulator for the next generation. Its huge offer of content and its passion for cars take it to the top of the podium.

    Project CARS strips back racing to what it should be: just the car, the track and you.

    Forget “The Real Driving Simulator”, Project CARS is racing simulation at its finest. [July 2015, p71]

    Project CARS is a great example of a game that is designed to get players to be better at what they love to do, without having to integrate designs that can hurts the game’s potential for its hardcore audience.

    Bugs aside, a tremendous and uncompromising simulation of a kind we may not have seen previously on consoles. [July 2015, p.89]

    For the most realistic driving simulation available though, Project CARS is all you’ll need.

    Slightly Mad Studios alters the racing-car formula smartly in several areas, but the good ideas are often half-baked or hidden behind a load of cruft.

    Игра оправдала ожидания в общем. Физика на высшем уровне и на много превосходит GT6. Графика для консоли сойдёт, но не будет забывать что этоИгра оправдала ожидания в общем. Физика на высшем уровне и на много превосходит GT6. Графика для консоли сойдёт, но не будет забывать что это симулятор. От шифта(nfs shift) в игре ничего нет, не слушайте не доброжелателей. К минусам можно отнести разве что количество машин и не совсем удобное управление на джойстике, но и игра сделана под руль. В общем как и сказала в начале, игра мне понравилась, если вы скучаете по онлайн покатушкам GT5 и GT6, то игру стоит брать не думая ;) Expand

    The hardcore motorsport fans who just have consoles have been left frustrated over the generations with the lack of realistic drivingThe hardcore motorsport fans who just have consoles have been left frustrated over the generations with the lack of realistic driving simulation games. Project CARS is a game which requires a lot of effort to master, particularly for those new to the genre. It is designed for steering wheel users and also controller users, which is very difficult to achieve.

    The career mode is simple. You can select various paths to climb the motorsport ladder. There are also time trials and practice modes available, not to mention weekly online events for prizes.
    The multiplayer is well structured. 16-players can compete together in various settings such as different weather, qualifying & private races.

    Due to the game being community funded, it is clear some car manufacturers were hesitant on allowing their cars to be manipulated into the game, but DLC is on the way to expand on each series. The track list is fantastic, featuring many classic circuits around the globe which are missed on other games. Furthermore, in case some of the audience were wondering, Project CARS is very different to the Need for Speed Shift series, which was an arcade racer. Some motorsport fanatics may be frustrated with the lack of compatible wheels on the Playstation 4, but pairing a recommended wheel with Project CARS is jaw-dropping.

    Project CARS is possibly the best racing game on consoles ever. Despite a few glitches in the physics on release, the physics and handling model is almost as good as those found in racing sims like Assetto Corsa. Fans of the TOCA series should really enjoy this. Slightly Mad Studios has a bright future with this series. A community based game, featuring what the fans really want, can provide huge success. This is the case here. A must-buy for hardcore racing fans.

    Project CARS is a well accomplished sim with a great depth but this comes with a price. Now i have read complaints from people saying its tooProject CARS is a well accomplished sim with a great depth but this comes with a price. Now i have read complaints from people saying its too twitchy and so on;the clue is in the name:Simulator. This game may be aimed at a large market but it appeals more to sim racing fans. I have played games such as Assetto Corsa,GTR and various other racers and this is with some of the greats.

    Now i have a few bad points
    1)the karting is TERRIBLE not a single game has mastered this(that ive played)
    2)the lack of important Manufactures(Ferrari,Nissan,Lamborghini,ETC)
    3)BUGS!!(will be fixed soon)
    4)play with a wheel (quite obvious really)
    Overall i have enjoyed the 20+ hours ive played of this even on the pad after a bit of fiddling its a tip top racer with a few kinks to bash out

    I think they should put a Mechanic / Pit crew simulator in the game to reach out to all aspects of the racing world. Actual changing of tiresI think they should put a Mechanic / Pit crew simulator in the game to reach out to all aspects of the racing world. Actual changing of tires with the pointer and lug-nut, same with changing worn or damaged parts. This game would get a 10 from me if these options were avalilable. Expand

    I bought it 70€, didn't play more than 20hours on it, a waste of money.

    Let me explain you: - There are not enough cars, and some of those
    I bought it 70€, didn't play more than 20hours on it, a waste of money.

    Let me explain you:
    - There are not enough cars, and some of those are never used
    - The game looks good but PS4 can do better I'm sure of that
    - There is no point, you play it when you wan to race, but no level system, no cash system, and the solo mode is boring, i played it online most of the time, which is pointless too.
    - The game is not configured for pads, i spent 3hours to find the perfect settings, because it was unplayable otherwise

    The best part of PCARS, is the number of tracks.

Some are more game-breaking than others, such as when two cars get stuck together when they barely touch, but ultimately all are incredibly annoying and make the game unenjoyable. Expand
