Although as much as I'd like them to really have stepped up into the REAL simulation fields, I doubt that will be the case.
I played GTR2, Evo, 07, and rFactor. 07 is basically an expansion of Evo, and GTR2 is still one of the de facto standards when it comes to PC racing sims, especially given the massive modding support it has. The physics are a bit more realistic on Evo and 07, but it's nothing major. You do feel a bit more connected to the car, though. But as far as the overall presentation, modding support and the overall feature set, GTR2 is still the more preferred one. Evo and 07 feel restricted in comparison.
Then you have rfactor, which has equally as good modding support as GTR2, along with comparable, but different physics. As far as which one is more realistic, that's up for debate. Not to mention, SimBin's and ISI's physics engines are able to be edited, and I know there are some mods out there that improve the physics for the games.
So really, all four games are different flavors. Some prefer one game over others, and all that matters at the end of the day is if you enjoy playing the game.
Also, the person probably referenced GTR2 and rfactor because those two are the most popular and matured racing sims on the PC.
EDIT: Then again, the way you have your wheel set up will be the main determiner on how realistic the game is.Edited by airisom2 - 10/14/13 at 6:35am
