This is the most beautiful of the GT's, with the extreme version of the already spectacular World Touring Car Championship, GTR Evolution has exclusive road cars from many prestigious brands. You will find much more in GTR Evolution, including the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife, a 20.8Km long race track in Germany: a race drivers heaven...

Includes Race 07: GTR Evolution includes Race 07, featuring its official WTCC license and all 2006 and 2007 WTCC cars and tracks. On top of that it comes with the most immersive formula car action ever seen.

49 Unique Cars in 12 Classes with over 500 Variations: GTR Evolution, with RACE 07, combines the elements of racing with touring cars, GT cars, formula cars and sports cars.

    19 Tracks, over 40 Different Layouts: From the streets of Macau to the straights of Monza or the Karussell on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, GTR Evolution combined with Race 07 has them all, closely modelled after their real-life examples.

      GT Championship Frenzy: 26 brand new GT car models in 4 different classes, including a selection of exclusive production cars.

        WTCC Extreme Cars: Evolution concept cars developed together with the car manufacturers of the WTCC. Rear Wheel Drive, over 600hp in 1000kg cars with extended body-kits: these beasts will give GT cars a run for their money.

         The series just gets better and better...

        I received my copy from Play today and got it installed ASAP. Having played right through the series from GTR, GT Legends, GTR2 and even Race '07, I had my hopes high for this.

        I shouldn't have had any doubts. GTR Evolution is simply THE cutting edge in terms of what a driving simulation should be. Yes, the graphics are merely pretty and the sounds are good. But combined, they are simply 'fillers' for the core of the game - and that is the handling and dynamics of the cars themselves.

        Having few (if any?) racing games on the PC that accurately represent the sacred Nordschleife circuit - that was my first port of call on GTR Evolution. Selecting a Koenigsegg CCX in bright orange (what else?!) and heading out onto the 'Ring - I realised that I was waaay out of my depth. Keeping the car on track was a feat in itself, but even when struggling with that, the handling model of the game shone through. Fish-tailing under heavy braking, tail-happy powerslides and rapid changes in gear as the redline was reached all too soon.

        Deciding I had bitten off more than I could chew to start with, I switched cars and chose one of the Caterhams on offer within the game. What a transformation! No longer under the hellish acceleration of the CCX, I now had the chance to savour the large power band of the Caterham and 'prep' the car for the next oncoming corner.

        Following a computer controlled Caterham, I managed to keep the blue car in check - just - the AI drivers' seeming to have the great balance of being a challenge to beat, yet not a complete pushover. There's even the neat little addition of having a key to pull off one of the tear-off strips on the visor. The attention to detail is that good.

        Sure enough, the overall charm of what GTR 'is' let itself be known in a mere half lap. There are plenty of racing games out there that look better, have more options, have more cars and tracks to choose from - but nothing, absolutely nothing compares to the latest GTR incarnation in terms of car handling.

        Granted, you'll need a decent wheel and pedals combo to get the most out of it (GTR Evolution itself supports many wheels - including arguably the best of the moment - the Logitech G25) - but it is SO worth it. However, if you're into your racing games enough to even consider this, then you probably have a decent control setup already. And as a fresh addition to the series, there's even the option to have engine 'rumble' come through the force-feedback wheel as well. Just don't set it to maximum. It feels like driving over a field of bricks!

        Put simply. If you want your jaw to drop at stunning visuals and simply have fun in a racing game - pick Gran Turismo Prologue on the PS3. If however, you can look past graphical perfection and instead, want to be rewarded for pure driving simulation - then GTR Evolution really is your only choice.

        And the icing on the cake? You simply cannot argue with the price of £17.99! For anyone who considers themselves even as a part-time petrolhead - you need this in your collection. Just brilliant.

         Great Game

        Bought this a couple of days ago for my shiny new gaming PC. All I can say is you can keep your console racers! This surpasses all of them, yes even the mighty Forza. The 'feel' of driving the cars is something you just don't get on other racing games. On my 28" monitor with the sound cranked up it is completely absorbing and with a thriving online community - what's not to like? Graphically it's good but not amazing. You don't need a behemoth PC to play it. Go buy and enjoy!

         Poor Attempt - Not Recommended.

        As racing games go, and there are a lot of really good ones ( and bad, Forza 2 cough cough) , this ranks as a bad one. The graphics are not anything special and the whole way the cars handle and move is just weird and very annoying. Not enjoyable to play at all and with a endless list of far far far better rivals. Avoid.
