Reviews for Race 07: WTCC
A decent sim for super cheap.numanair | Dec. 26, 2012 | See all numanair's reviews »
If you are looking for a racing sim on a budget this is the way to go. While the game is several years old, it has aged pretty well. The graphics and performance are good, even on a midrange PC. You will want to use a wheel with this game as it does have simulator physics. The tire physics are actually the main problem I have with the game. The skidding dynamics of the tires does not feel real. This inhibits powerslides and drifting, so if you are looking for a racing game to drift in, this might not be it. It is after all built as a touring car sim. Multiplayer is fun, though it took some figuring out with opening ports (the specific ports are listed on Simbin's website). Unfortunately it does not have splitscreen multiplayer. The community support is good and features a fair amount of user made content. Because Race 07 shares parts of its engine with several other games there are several mod conversions available.
A sim with all the cars you could wantCooberstooge | Aug. 26, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
Simbin has done an awesome job with this game, and it's because of this that Race 07 is enjoyable for those of us who aren't into hardcore racing sim games.
There's cars in here from all the different types, from modified Minis to full-blown Formula super cars. The tracks are set all over the world, and can feature realistic weather effects, should you so desire them. You can race from a following perspective, or even in-car if you like, with operable controls that mimic what you're doing at the moment.
The online racing component is still very much alive, and racing with a bunch of humans is so much more fun than the AI, even though that in itself is very competent. Cheaters are a problem in the online races, but they're always "named 'n shamed" by the community and quickly disappear or clean up their act. The community is very friendly to newcomers, and any help offered is always a suggestion, never a demand.
For a $5 racer, you cannot possibly go wrong with Race 07, which will give you plenty of hours of great-looking fun for an insanely low price.
A pretty fun racing sim for the price.Gh0st233 | May 26, 2012 | See all Gh0st233's reviews »
This game is a pretty fun racing simulation. The price is reasonable for the content that you get. There's alot of championships and different vehicles for each of these. And, my favourite feature, is the cockpit view. It feels pretty realistic, maybe not as realistic as DiRT 2 or 3, but realistic, nonetheless. If you do have a steering wheel, be sure to try it with one, as the feeling is much better than with a keyboard. The cars are fairly textured and look pretty decent, considering the game is a few years old. I'd recommend the game, for the full price.
