Conclusion: Anyway... not really sure what else I can add to this but if you learn the tracks and learn how the cars handle then you will enjoy the game but if you want this game just to have a quick mess around on then to be honest I wouldnt recommend it as its not really that fun until you've played it for a while. Because of this i'm giving it 3/5.
Conclusion: RACE Pro is a racing game for racing fans and, to its credit, never tries to be anything else. It’s by no means one for the Continental Circus breed of arcade racing junkies, but it will have an appeal to Gran Turismo-style gamers. To get the best from the title you need to have time and patience to learn how to master each track’s intricacies as well as unlocking and tweaking each car’s performance to snatch that all-important extra tenth.
Summary: It can be easy to think you are supremely good at racing games when you have help like stability assist, anti-lock brakes, and traction control to keep your expensive race car glued to the track. RACE Pro has these options for budding racers, sure, but with them turned off the racing gameplay takes on an addicting if not masochistic feel where steady hands and smooth motions prevail.
Conclusion: The driving mechanics are solid enough but that is about as good as it gets as the rest of the game feels surprisingly out of date. The online mode is a real let down too and you have to wonder how anyone would choose this over PGR or Forza. My advice would be to wait for the next instalment in either of those series of games unless you are on the lookout for a hardcore simulation.
Excerpt: There are many different types of racing game out there, but with even the more arcade-like efforts venturing into simulation territory (and doing it well), is there room for yet another racer that claims to be the most technical simulation of the sport to date? SimBin certainly think so, and have done for a while.
Excerpt: If the phrase “racing sim” summons an image of a solemn, cave-like space kitted out with a high-end wheel, multiple monitors, and a cockpit (rather than a chair) — and that counts as a good thing — you are so gonna love Race Pro. Its monk-like devotion to pure racing simulation is remarkable…and kind of a turn-off for the rest of us. Race Pro would really benefit from just one ounce of sex appeal.
Pros: + High-fidelity simulation and physics, especially if you hook up a steering wheel.
Cons: - Lifeless career mode., - Baffling, pointless limitations on race settings., ? Did playing this game actually make us better drivers?
Conclusion: This is a sim that demands to be studied with depth and precision, and will reward your persistence with satisfaction and all kinds of technical bragging rights. A solid sim for the petrolheads, and worthy of general consideration if like your racing a bit more cerebral.
