Just a second here...
#1 im not really a fanboy of any game but this is just as much a sim as any other game you can bring up to me.
i have been racing pc online almost 10 years and racing on consoles for 30 years.
People that want to claim it is not a sim sure your welcome to your opinion but i don't have to accept that opinion.
The fact is ... racers from iracing posting on the cody's forums putting the game down are plain rude. Nobody states the facts. They just say oh it's not a sim like iracing or gtr or n2003 or any other deemed sim game. I say ''bull shit'' and that is my opinion.
Wanna talk about damage in n2003 a game i loved or iracing? both have major issues with netcode and horrible sounds for damage (iracing damage sounds are pathetically bad and all the cars have same damage noises lol @ that).
If the damage in n2003 was any good there would not be a million damage add on's and sound packs to make it better. (and i accept that game fully as a sim)
I used to say in iracing's forums in beta and after beta i would like ghost cars like gtr games, or good ai, and i was laughed at... a sim should not have those features lol at those people, maybe the us air force should not have ai in their simulators.
Let make a checklist... is this as much as a sim as GPL? hell yes.
Sim Bin or rfactor yes and yes. (i own every one of them from rfactor, gtl to race on and love every one of them)
n2003 which is looked at to be the holy grail of sim racing had shitty crappy AI no weather and a ARCADE MOD.
Turn all your AIDS OFF... ALL of them ... turn on full fuel load, tire wear, then race 50+ laps at any track with full field of AI and you will have a workout on your hands.
Not to leave out once you learn how to make up your own set ups, download other peoples ghost cars to practice with, and run full ONLINE point series without the need of a outside points calculator is great planning.
I for one am very impressed and believe this Sim will go down as a classic if people buy it and give it a solid chance.
