Excerpt: t's a shame but some developers have the habit of releasing software that either isn't finished or is poorly designed. There are two solutions to this dilemma. One is to develop great software, and the other is to reduce retail prices, especially if the developer knows that the product was rushed to get it out the door. Finding a company that does BOTH is really rare, and worth pointing out.
Excerpt: Le Mans? C'est Magnifique. First, a little background. Le Mans is a race challenge in France that involves racing around a single track for a full 24 hours. 24 hours! One entire freakin' day! Sounds more like some kind of grueling torture that requires industrial strength No-Doz than a car race. The very idea of sleepy eyed drivers in ultra fast cars...at any given moment, one of 'em will nod off and careen right into bleachers of fans.
Pros: Attention to detail in the graphics, Simulation control done well, Le Mans beautifully re-created, But still a blast, Le Mans is the focus of the game, Other circuits just aren't as interesting, Niche interest
