"Beautiful, bold and varied. Slightly Mad are uncompromising in their simulation." - [PC Gamer]
"Project Cars is a brave step forward, one that this genre has been in dire need of for some time. When you experience just how well a racing game can work when the training wheels are taken off and you're given free rein to act as you wish, you'll struggle to understand just why the mainstream racing franchises didn't incorporate the idea sooner." - [Telegraph]

This game was too "deep" for me. Project Cars is an ambitious project where simulation gets to the next level, but also targets those players of arcade based games or semi-simulation. Project Cars is easy to be played, but incredibly hard to be mastered as you really need to know how the machine you are driving works. The problem is, that you don't only need to master game mechanics and learn about your driving by your own experience. The problem is that you also need to learn from the poorly made physics and lots of bugs filling the title. I lost so many races just because of that. Sound is good, particulary good, and graphics are incredible. Too bad gameplay doesn't work that good.
Realism, Realism Realism! These are the cries of the mass individual that is the Internet, and one that was particularly involved in the funding and development of Project Cars, a title with humble beginnings whose ambitions rose above its ability. I followed this game for years, when it was not an ultra sim but rather a cool, forza/pgr type racer that aimed to be equivalent for PC gamers(who have lacked such a game for a long time) as well as an achievement in visuals and graphics. It has achieved the latter, and that is without argument true. While you'll need a heft system to push it, the details, lighting, cars and overall aethetics of PC are phenomenal, there is no arguing that. However, that's where the fun ends(for me). This game demands the player to be a racing aficionado, to know the physics of real life racing to a T, as well as punishing all but steering wheel users with extremely touchy and downright unusable controls with a controller. This is sadly the result of the community clamoring for it during development, and it has alienated me, someone who enjoys more realistic racers that aren't need for speed like PGR or Forza without the punishing difficult of pretending it's the real thing. Regardless, it's well put together and despite the high difficulty curve and troublesome AI, I'm happy the game was made, it fills a hole for many PC gamers looking for the ultimate sim. unfortunately for the rest of us that hole still exists.
the game is astonishingly beutiful, the cars are gorgeous and the weather sistem is also good looking, but the physics of this game are non existent, when your car bumps into someone or in to something it just "jumps" a little or just changes direction, but almost never if ever, a wheel can come off after a crash, if you want a racing game with gorgeous graphics this is a very recommended game, but if you are looking for a realistic car racing gamplay, this is is not what you are looking for. even though the game has no physics, i really enjoy it, its a good game.
I don't think that I need mention how good the game looks - that's covered everywhere, and you can see that for yourself in the screenshots. Apart from that - what else is good? For me, its the chance to take part in events such as karting. It's something different that other racing games don't have, and these events are on tracks that haven't been worn out by other games too. I also like the inclusion of some smaller brand cars, and the general layout of the career calendar and the way that works. The career homepage with the news feed and the "twitter comments" is also a nice touch and makes it feel real. The bad? The most annoying 2 things for me are A) when one wheel touches the grass and you end up sliding and lose control completely, and B) when you run wide on the OUTSIDE of the track (as in away from the racing line and losing time because of your mistake) and it then claims you cut the track and the lap time is invalidated. In general I quite like it - the car choice is reasonably large and still growing, and it does look/sound great. Yet it has that twitchiness that plagued Shift 2. It's worth playing, but perhaps see if you can get it on sale! [and check out Grid Autosport... that might appeal to you a little more]
I am probably the minority in saying that I have played better racing games out there. This is NOT a bad game by any means. If there a racing game out there for any fan to enjoy, it is this one. However. I didn't get that huge thrill like described nu others. Call be a prude, but the game could have done better to capture the experience.
