So its almost that time when these 2 drop. For the 1st time ever I am about to "pre-purchase" the Digital deluxe version of PCars2 but I'm a lil undecided cos of Forza 7.
Its kinda crazy since they both never really ran well on AMD systems, but , oh well, the itch needs to be scratched tongue.gif
i don't have a PS4 or else I'd have thrown it in the mix, anyhoo what are your opinions on these 2 ?

Project Cars 2 is the better sim, has better Force Feedback wheel support, and has VR support.

I'v been looking into racing sims for a while now.
I remember gran turismo 3 on my playstation 2 back in the day. Whatever can make me feel like that will definitely get my hard earned cash.

It is said that Forza is the better game when it comes to that Gran Turismo feel. But i'd like to hear some input on you racing fanatics on what you would recommend for me.

How much of a SIM do you really want?

Die hard Sim fanatics would classify both Gran Turismo and Forza as arcade racers. They're fairly realistic, but they have a lot of arcade racer elements to make the games more "fun" for the masses. The physics are more forgiving, the setups and tunes are far more basic, and the upgrade system is pure arcade. Being able to toss some massive turbocharger onto a stock engine and instantly double the horsepower without changing anything else is extremely unrealistic, but that's precisely how the upgrade system in both Gran Turismo and Forza work.

Between the two, Forza is a little closer to a real sim. The physics are closer to correct, and the upgrades are more down to earth. You can't build up some fantasy racer that can turn a 4 minute lap at Nurburgring like you can in Gran Turismo, which is about 2 minutes faster than any real car has ever run that course.

Project Cars 2 is more of a sim than either of those games, but it still has some less than pure sim aspects to it. Still, if you're looking for realism in your driving games, it's going to be a significant step above Gran Turismo or Forza. That may or may not be more fun for you, but it is closer to replicating real cars on real tracks with more realistic tuning. You won't find the arcadish upgrades of Gran Turismo or Forza, but the tuning aspect is far more in depth with far more true-to-life results.

If you're looking for an extreme sim you'll probably want to look at the now fairly old iRacing or RFactor2.

I didn't think much of project cars 1. Limited cars. Didn't like the racing team thing.

Big fan of gran turismo but since you don't have a ps4, i vote forza. I love the balance between real and arcade. Try the games before you buy if you can.

All totally valid complaints with the original which have been fixed with Project Cars 2.

PC2 has over 180 cars now. It has more tracks out of the box than any other racing game that I know of, and while it still has race teams the whole system has been vastly improved to give you a lot more choice over who to race for. Plus it has fully dynamic and fully customizable weather on every track. Also the controller input and settings as well as the physics models are FAR better than the first game. Project Cars 2 is a much, MUCH better game than the original in every way with virtually every common complaint about the original being fixed in the second.

There's a demo out for Forza 7 on both Xbox and W10 right now, you could always go try that out and see how you like it.
