Summary: Do not listen to these horrible reviews. Ferrari Racing Legends is a sheer driving pleasure. Slightly Mad Studios have done a fantastic job with the driving physics and making the game both accessible and exciting, as they did with Shift. The car roster is huge, and has a lot of variety too. There are some great tracks here from classics like Monza and Silverstone to favourites like Nordschleiffe and Mugello GP.
Summary: Who doesn't like Ferrari? Well, i'm a Ferrari fan. I've been waiting for this game for a long time. Finally i got it for PC and for my surprise: I didn't buy a racing game, but a boat racing game! The game should have called: "Test Drift: Ferrari Racing Legends" But even for drifting this game would be a failure. Because of the famous "input lag" (known in Shift and Shift 2) It's so absurd it tends to be ridiculous...
Summary: As a huge car enthusiasist, I was quite looking forward to this game, but when I saw the developer "Slightly Mad Studios", I almost didn't even want to start the game. And boy, was I right ! I never liked Shift games due to its driving model, which is nowhere near arcade nor simulation. It was always like driving a snowmobile.
Summary: After many months of delays it finally gets released on PC and I can assure you it wasn't worth the wait. Controls are so fidgety and I can understand purists love a challenge in handling but even on the easy settings it's unbearable in modern and silver campaign to complete the achievements. After much frustration i just put this aside as the enjoyment faded fast.
Summary: WOW, what a huge disappointment, graphics, gameplay etc all feel like i stepd back into the 80's gaming shame because i really was hopeing this title would be at least as good as testdrive 2's graphics/gameplay but this game FAILS terribly.. every car handles the same, all over the place no balance etc..
Summary: First, the starting in black and white and changing to color after the flag falls is a disaster. I don't know how many times I ran off the track because I couldn't see it. Second, I had to crank up the brightness on my t.v. because the shadows in the game are so dark that you can't even see the racing line.
Summary: Most gamers will probably not want to put in the time and effort necessary to beat the numerous, sky-high challenges in the career mode, and without beating those challenges, the vast majority of the game (both cars and tracks) remains locked (even in arcade and time trial modes). An extremely frustrating and disappointing waste of money for me.
Summary: Everything about this game is fantastic, I own a couple Ferrari's and have driven them on the track. Let me tell you the handling is very simalar, I drive with a CSR elite wheel and this game does it plenty of justice. If you are a Ferrari fan and a race fan, this game is a must have. Enjoy it and hope to see you on the track.
