Excerpt: Simbin have released a new racing game entitled Race On however on closer inspection it is basically a resissue of the aging (but still solid) Race 07. The Swedish developer added Nordschleife and some Grand Tourers last year and called it GTR Evolution ... this year they add more to it, with American Muscle cars, WTCC 08 updates and some Swedish Touring action making the grade.
Excerpt: The is one thing I have to give credit to Swedish developer SimBin for. Their GTR/Race series truly delivers in giving hardcore racing fans a true simulation experience. Race 07 was an amazing PC racer designed for those who want to test their driving skills to the limit, and now with Race On they are continuing that tradition. Matter of fact, Race On actually is a continuation of Race 07.
Excerpt: Chances are you haven’t seen anyone playing dominoes since your local old-man’s pub got turned into a trendy wine bar, their trusty domino sets having been dumped in the cellar alongside the dart board and old bar stools.

Excerpt: New York Race is a fast-paced futuristic racer inspired by Luc Besson's film -The Fifth Element.

New York Race features over 25 superfast "cars" (up 500 km/h), 12 spectacular urban circuits from 4 different districts, and four game modes - championship, single race, multiplayer or time attack. What else to say about this game?
Excerpt: Rally Masters has more of an arcade feel than Colin McRae or Rally Championship. The cars are modelled in impressive detail with special effects like reflection and dirt mapping, transparent glass, and realistic car damage which affects car handling and performance. In the daytime and night races, there are realistic weather effects, you will also see skid marks and spark effects, plus gravel, smoke and water splashes.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I HATE games with inappropriate names. Seriously. What’s the point of naming a game ‘Race’ if it’s hardly got any racing in it ? I don’t get it. Race – the official game of the WTCC ( ‘World Touring Car Championship’ for all you illiterates reading this ) – is actually a driving simulator at its core. The game, developed by SimBin and published by Eidos, is exactly similar to games like Gran Turismo and TOCA.
Excerpt: Every 510 years a contest is held between rival nations of the interstellar planets. The reason behind the contest is for every civilization to test out their latest planetary defense systems in an effort to secure their dominance over the rest of the Galaxy. Since it would be considered an act of war if any one planet was to challenge another planets defenses, it was decided that an independent company called IDS (Interstellar Defense Systems) would have the "privilege"...
