Is there a good PC Racing Game? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I second the DIRT 3 recommendation... it has a really realistic feel to the cars in comparison to a game like Need for Speed (which is more arcade like). Racing games are the only time I break out my XBOX360 controller for the PC... trying to steer with the keyboard gets me too aggravated wink.gif

Test Drive Unlimited gets my vote.

On the whole, there aren't many great games. NFS are fun. Really fun... not GT though.

Shift 2 is great. I've played it to death for a couple of month after its release. Only problem is there is barely anyone online playing it, if you're into that. Still, it's a great game and I'm sure you can find it on sale for 20/30 bucks.

The same developer, SMS, is now working on a community-assisted (funded) title called C.A.R.S. which will be (should be eventually) more focused on sim racing, but that's coming in a year or more. If you have 10 or 25 bucks you can sign up to be a "team member" there and play weekly builds with fixes and content updates to the game. It's pretty low on content right now and it's not running all that great but just letting you know that it might be worth checking out at some point or keep your eye on it.
