"For hardcore WTCC fans only"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Simbin has become the stalwart of PC sim racing, and this represents one of their early attempts at a WTCC game.

It possesses a punishing learning curve for those who are not veterans of this genre. Do not expect to pick up and play this game with a keyboard or game pad. For those with a racing wheel and patience this game can be superb fun, and the relative lack of content and archaic graphics are forgivable. For those who are looking for a more casual forza/ gran turismo for the pc should look elsewhere.

This game does have a number of negatives however. It requires steam, which I know will be a big turn off to some, and it has been far surpassed by other Simbin titles such as GTR2, GTR Evo, Race 07 and its expansion Race on (which have far better gamepad support). Overall it is hard to recommend as Race On has all its content in a more user friendly package, and far better mod and community support from websites like nogrip, so its definitely worth the extra spend.

To get an idea of what these games a like, track down Volvo- the game, a joint marketing exercise between Simbin and Volvo running on the Race 07 engine. Its free to download and features 2 tracks and a number of Volvo cars.
