@ George – The website contradicts itself. The specs page says you must use a wheel, other pages say all you need is a gamepad, and the 360 controller is mentioned. Sure, I like Mario Kart, but I realise that’s nothing like what this is about.
@ Joey-Poey – It does sound interesting, and if I do take the plunge, I’ll probably end up spending a lot of time just practising or time trialling to get a feel for the thing. The website seems to say you can do that if you want. I realise it’s a spot-on simulation. I currently play Forza 3, and although I appreciate that the level of physics in that are good, they’re probably not entirely accurate as iRacing is seen to be, but that’s much more my cup of tea than something like Need for Speed. And if I’m going to spend money on an MMO game, I’d much rather it was something I like and progress in, rather than World of Warcraft, which is where that bit of my budget currently goes!
I like the fact that there are so many tracks of all different types, and more and more are being added, as well as the different types of cars.
Might buy a month to tril it, and then if I like it, grab that Grand Prix starter pack just before the offer runs out at the beginning of March.
One question I can’t find an answer to. Can you apply your own liveries to the cars? I have just as much fun in Forza 3 painting the cars as I do driving them.
