Impressive? More so than other sims?
yes, its more like LFS than GTR, but the road surface feels more real than in LFS. it really feels like youre riding on actual ground when you have the force feedback cranked up, like you can reach out and touch every single pebble on the track.
the only problem is that when stationary, or even in menus, sometimes the FF sets off and the wheel starts violently shaking while in a menu. dunno if thats a problem with my drivers or what. using a G25.
the only thing i dont like is that when clutch is set to manual, and you shift, it autoclutches for you, albiet slowly, but thats just a minor issue, and it saves your ass if you screw up while clutching.
theres not many cars, like 5 or something, and only 1 road car, the solstice of all things, but the huge number of tracks totally makes up for it. ive tried lime rock, silverstone, and everyone's favorite laguna seca, and theyre all brilliant (not that i would know what they are actually like in real life, but they seem brilliant). and the tree at the laguna seca corkscrew IS there, so i would recommend using it if you play that track.
also, no AI (as far as i can tell), no online with this version
