The complete package

Race on is Race 07 plus all of it's expansion packs all in one purchase. No need to buy any other packs. The game sits halfway between Forza and it's Simbin's previous game GTR2 in simulation. It's a good game for racing fans and can be played on an xbox controller just as well as it can a steering wheel and pedal setup. The graphics in my opinion are a little worse than GTR2, which is odd. Also the sounds are not as good and the game as a whole seems less immersive. It is still a good game it is just more mainstream than Simbin's previous games.

A true racing sim

Race On has more cars than Greggs have pies. This compilation has something for everyone. Single-seaters, tourers, sports cars, etc.

Whilst getting on in age a little bit, the graphics are still more than serviceable and convey a great sense of speed. The damage model is not all it could be, but that isn't really important. The noise of your engine is loud and detailed, the crackles and pops from your overrunning exhaust pipe accompanying every gear change.

The cars (especially the touring cars) feel right on the ragged edge of adhesion and it really immerses the player in the race, because you know that if you drive in a silly fashion, you are going straight to the scene of the accident.

That's not to say it isn't accessible - far from it, with a large selection of driver aids and AI which is adjustable by percentage points, everyone should find a setting that they are happy with, whether you are a hard-core simmer or you're looking for an arcade buzz.

Highly recommended.

Better than most racing games!

This game is nice when it comes to the tracks, the graphics, and the fast-pace. The tracks are marvelous, as they aren't generic at all and contain a lot of room for pushing other cars out of the way and slowing others down. The graphics are stunning, the cars look great when they shine the way they do and the environment is amazing. The game is very fast paced, if you make one mistake, it could screw you over, and if you do the right move, you could be on top in a matter of seconds. I recommend this game for racing game lovers.
