Okay im going to save this game as so many people are slating it, and they clearly have no idea how to play the game or what their getting into when they buy this game. First off this game is a Simulator not an arcade style racer, if you don't know cars very well then buying this game is like jumping into the deep end of the pool when you can just about swim.
People always complain about the steering, You HAVE to tune your car's in this game.. you have steering lock which adjust sensitivity e.g if your on a map with loads of bends you put it higher map with less bends lower, it adds more depth to the game instead of here's your car take it.
Among tuning there is ride height toe-in, toe-out suspension, downforce etc etc etc if you don't know what im on about either get revising or just spend a lot of time on the game. People are slating this game, and they clearly know sweet FA about cars let alone the game. This game offers a thrilling experience helmet cam is brilliant it add's a whole new perception to driving games, the car's are limited but there's already DLC out to buy more car's it's a cheap game tbh i got myn for 20 quid brand new from game.
**BTW** You do not HAVE To tune your car's however tuning them will add to performance and better handling etc. If your going to believe one person believe me i am level 18 on driver level i haven't completed all race's i bought a supra and Upgraded it loads, then tuned it to drift, then again for track based racing. - I said it all their, the people that complain about the driving on this are just used to the arcade style NFS, this game is more realistic more thrilling than GT5 ever was. Sure you can't change your oil but i really couldn't care less..
You can customise the way your car looks if your wondering add vinyls it is limited in this one but after all it's a track racer not street, the vinyls are good you get some decent brand ones then stripes, tribal, checkered, cartoon etc.
Honestly if your going to get this game ignore all the BS about steering, give the game a chance tune your car even if you don't know about it all the game gives a nice short and descriptive piece of info on each bit, i had to tinker with my car for ages to get it spot on which makes the game far more personal.
If you don't like helmet cam btw there is also a driver's seat view thats similar but your not seing through his eyes more or less where the drivers head would be.
Give this game a chance, it is amasingly brilliant, i started off with the BMW box standard then got BMW M3 as i kept the first one which i think was an M6 for a decent time. I tuned it then raced and got my supra. This game offers race,eliminator, hot lap and ofc DRIFT there are more. So yer don't believe the people QQ about how shift 1 was better shift 2 is a whole new game it's like getting peter parker then the spider biting him SHIFT2 is spiderman SHIFT1 is basic old PP, But remember on this game with power does come responsibility you can't go slamming through bends in this game, its realistic its gripping, it makes you sweat shout NO as your car slams into a bend and most of all LOVE IT.
