Why this game? No point in buying an awesome wheel for a crap game. I watched a few gameplay video's online and the physics look terrible. You can brake from like 130mph down to 30mph on a hairline, in easy mode you can pretty much full throttle through the game and it will drive for you and even the "pro mode" is unrealistic.

Get Live For Speed.

He never said he wanted realism. Realistic doesn't always mean fun.

I don't get excited over realistic physics. Its fun and that's what matters.

The game stinks. Horrible steering. Compared to Simbim as a 10 this is a 2 or 3. Big shame because it looks nice but that's it. Uninstalled and gave it to my 5 year old. He'll like it.

People are so picky about steering. There are tons of options to adjust the steering settings in the game.

Plus, if you want real steering, go outside in a real car.

The game was never meant to be a fully blown, hardcore, enthusiast racing simulator. Its somewhere between arcade and simulator.

Pros...
A perfect mix between fun and stress. I started playing MP last night, and while there were a few players wanting to wreck everyone, it was a good time. I don't suggest using a keyboard and mouse for this game. A pad or wheel is a must. The damage physics is a nice mix. As long as you keep things in prespective, you'll have a great time playing this one. 4/5 stars.

Cons...
Menu layout is intended for consoles. MP lag cuases cars to look like gravity is being turned on/off. SP is slow at first.

I play Race 07 for my realism needs and GRID for fun... nuff said.

Plus, I can actually USE my wheel with Race 07.
