  Great Value. Good Game

| | See all ETizzle's reviews (8)

I think for the money, this game is very good value, but i wouldnt want to pay much more than 10-15 pounds for it. so at 7.99 pounds i think its a bit of a bargain. i dont think this game is anywhere near as excellent as RaceDriver Grid is. but i do think it is a good game.

the car controls arent as realistic as they could be (for example. as good as Grid) but they are quite good. i think it is easier to use with a steering wheel. you dont get total control over the car and you cant power slide without using the handbrake. (although racing drivers dont drive using the handbrake)
i think that the graphics of the cars and tracks are excellent, although the damage is pretty non-existent. i would have liked to seen more realism in that respect
i like the fact that you have to qualify for track position and that you can use the pits, this is something i missed from grid.
its nice to drive on tracks i have never driven before and the little cornering helper at the top of the screen (like you get on rally games) is good when you are learning the tracks to start off with.
there are a good selection of cars although they are all touring cars and the racing and championships are all italian touring championships.
i am also really into trophies (unfortunatly they were not on grid. so superstars is better in that respect) , there are 36 to get, this was a big plus for me and they aren't too difficult to collect.

overall i gave this game 4 stars because i would have liked a little more car control and to have actual damage on the cars.
but i think for the price, even if you only get a couple of weeks enjoyment out of it. its defiantly worth it

hope this review was helpful

  Quality game, Quality price.

The game is brilliantly low priced, it has great graphics mainly on the cars and less on the surroundings. It is a proper classic racing game - you have to work to win! pick up a bargain its great.

  Bargain buy

This is probablys the best bargain I have bought for my PS3, for 7.99 you can't go wrong. This game is like a true racer, reminds me of the old touring cars. Its not like other racers where you leave cars in the distance and finish way in front, its realistic the opponent cars stay on your tail to the finish, make any mistakes and you will get overtakin no question. If you like testing yourself on a realistic racing sim then this is for you.
I have played on-line once and it is awesome, only problem is most of the time I have tryed to play, no one else is on line, its a shame coz this game would be mint online when racing against 11 others, more people need to buy this especially for the bargain price of 7.99, you can't go wrong.
A different type of raceing game, no other like it on the market.
Good graphics and gameplay, more needed online tho

  Controller ltd configuration

| | See all discharge's reviews (6)

My one and only gripe for this game is that you cant use R3 for acceleration or braking! - whats that about?, I cant stand racing games that 'LOCK' you to R2+L2 acc & braking, I also cannot stand 'X' & square locked game, I think its sheer laziness on the devs part.
Anyway the game itself is excellent, the AI is spot on for most of the game,I like the way they block you from passing, or give you a love tap if you ease them onto the grass, graphically its good, the cars feel heavy and thank fully they are not on a 'central pivot' turning system if you have the 3rd person view.
For £10 you cant go wrong with this game - so if you love V8's as the Australians do then get this, oh there is no commentary btw(no problem for me).
So all in all its a damn fine game apart from that fixed controller thingy

5 Stars for the car detail/graphics
5 stars for the game play
4 for the AI, not really competitive. I started the Championship on the hard mode but i finish miles away from my opponent. I switched to legend mode, its a bit better than the hard mode but i made 8 pole positions on the legend opponent. to be fair, when you get the right set up you'll be in the pole position. i finish the legend mode being crowned as champion and nothing else.
3 Stars for not being permitted to drive on your own name and profile.
i love this game and thinking to keep this forever as i am a BMW fun. I hope the next series would be you could create your own profile like Grid. This game is realistically better than Grid.

  Very good

| | See all leeman818's reviews (3)

Still waiting for the next F1 racing game, this was the nearest ps3 title as an actual racing game. I have motor storm 1 and 2, Fuel and others but i like to be in a big race starting at the back of the grid working my way forward. im very pleased with this game which will keep me going till the next F1 title comes out next year... and you can change the speedo to MPH in settings with many more options......

  Not bad at all!

| | See all gomersoul's reviews (14)

i bought this game because there seems to be a drought in racing games recently, well fuel came out but it was a bit pants. superstars v8 racing puts you in a touring car championship based in italy, good graphics, arcade or simulation racing, tracks are mostly unheard of apart from monza, but still are true to their real life counterparts, challenging and fun.

Trophies seem attainable, unlike some other games. only bad thing is that it hasn't much depth and no custom soundtracks, also from what i can tell it's locked in measuring speed in kmph not mph (Not a big issue!) the racing is solid, brake discs glow under braking which is a nice touch. fully customisable button controls, has damage though it's not as devastating as other racers. all in all i would recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed the TOCA series on the PSOne.
