  Excellent Game but Win 7 users need to download patch

| | See all CaptMalcolmKirk's reviews (2)

Like all Simbin simulations, this is an excellent racing simulation. In fact the front end is similar to Race 07, GTR evolution et all. Handing is a dream and graphics are very pretty. Released in 2005 means that it will run on most machines (I'm running it on my laptop). However Windows 7 users need to download a couple of patches to make it run on this system. Do not let this discourage you from buying this game -especially at this price. However best to google before you install.

  The Glory Days

| | See all BengUK's reviews (19)

GT Legends brings to life the cars of the 60s & 70s. Everything from the lowly Fiat 500 to the classic Mini up to the Ford GT and Porsche 911.

Now this is a petrol heads game, you can tweak many of the settings of the cars, gear ratio, suspension etc.
But if your not a mad petrol head you can still have fun just leaving the cars on their default settings.

The game works best with a wheel and pedals rather than keyboard or joystick. Saying that you can still play with keyboard and its still great fun so don't let that put you off.
But as I said it works best with a wheel and pedals, the reason being the cars in this game are from the era before traction control, ABS etc so you have to be careful with the throttle or you will find yourself spinning off into the wall more that completing laps.

If your old enough to remember the glory days of racing you will remember the titanic battles on the race track where leaders would have to fight hard to stay in the lead and a single mistake would end up in a lost place so quickly.
This game captures that feeling and puts it within your grasp.

Down sides?
To the arcade racer player (NFS RD2) you will be frustrated with the apparent lack of speed while working your way up through the ranks but stay with it, there are beasts of cars to race at the higher levels.
The graphics, while being very nice are just a little too clean and the damage engine could have been a bit better.

While this game is starting to show its age, it is one of the best racing simulators out there.
