After looking at how great the screenies from pcars were and reading peoples feedback, I just had to get it.
It cost me $54.00 Australian dollars. I paid with paypal and flawlessly downloaded the installer and then the main program (3.4 gig). Then it checked for up dates and downloaded a patch (500 mb).
Installed the program & calibrated the controllers.
The first time I ran pcars i had no real idea what tracks or cars it would have for me to chose from let alone the fact that I could choose DX11
I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of cars and tracks there was
I chose the caterham first and then chose Bathurst.
It makes what I'm used too look like a windows 95 game.
Yes I know thats a big statement, but I can not stress how good this Simulation program is.
I chose the formula A as my second car. First thing I noticed was I didn't have traction control on
yawn. YAWN NOT! It was crazy!
For a start the Bathurst track is the finest version of this great track I have ever had the pleasure of driving on.
The sense of speed was incredible. The sense of when you need to brake was second to none in Sims.
The force feedback on the CSR-E was mind blowing. I drove for about 4-5 hours just trying each car on Bathurst and I can feel some blisters coming on on each hand. AWESOME!
The graphics is how I would of expected from a top Race Sim in 2012-2013.
It ran FLAWLESSLY and gave me good fps not that i checked what I was getting. I did go into the graphics settings just for a look. I did notice I could turn some things on and up to make it look better. Hahaha, There was no way i needed to do anything as I was so satisfied I still can not believe how good it was.
Slightly Mad Studios have set the bar so high there is no way any other program will catch to this brilliant brilliant Sim.
If you like hill climb type tracks, its got it.
If you like old F1 cars, it has it.
If you like the highest quality graphics, tracks and cars, its got it.
If you like you like the physics of real cars, it has it.
If you like F1 cars with sick Turbo's, its got it.
If you want DX 11 quality, it surly ticks that box.
If you love rooster tails, its has that too.
If you like updates weekly, you can have that too.
If you like carts, its got it.
If you like formula fords, you will want to marry this program.
If you like realistic weather & dynamic volumetric clouds, it has it.
I could add another 312 more reasons why this is the best Racing Sim and why its not going to be surpassed by any current Sim, but you should stop reading this and go try for your self. I give you my word, its is the best.
