Project CARS (PC) by the Slightly Mad Studio is a complex and demanding racing simulation. Plenty of cars to choose, enough tracks to satisfy anyone, and flexible difficulty level to make your game suitable for both casual and hardcore gamers. Co-funded on Kickstarter, Project CARS is one of the most interesting and complex racing game of recent years.
Truly about racing
No hip pop soundtrack. Not overblown pointless plot in the career mode. No rewinding your mistakes like nothing happened. Project CARS doesn't care about any of that. Project CARS cares about racing and that's what you get when you buy it. Tracks, cars, tuning, and in-depth handling mechanics are what you getting in this game, no distractions: pure racing.
Project CARS is a game for everyone, no matter your skill. Whether you are a newcomer to the genre or you've mastered every track in every racing game, Project CARS will let you customize your experience to the degree you want. Decided how much assist you want, how intense opponent AI should be, and more. Project CARS is exactly as hard as you like it. You can even adjust the difficulty before every. Single. Race. How's that for flexibility and providing excellent experience?Don't rest on your laurels, however: the game remains quite a bit harder than your typical go-to arcade racer.
If flexible difficulty level is not enough, Project CARS even allows you to move and remove elements of your HUD. Don't like that gauge? Delete it. You want your speedometer on the other side of the screen? Move it. You can even remove the steering wheel from your sight if you don't want it to distract you from your dedicated controller.
When you finally stop gushing over all the options, the career mode has even more treats. You can pick racing, touring and GT right off the bat, and that even begins to cover the tiers. Project CARS doesn't force you to do anything. You want to stay at the tier you're on right now, nobody's going to move you up unless you want. You can ever pick from which tier you begin your legend. Start where you want, stay where you prefer.
A game of discipline, not screeching tires
Did you think you could take a corner on full speed with just a handbrake? Enjoy your time on the tree. Project CARS will have none of that nonsense. A realistic physics model, appropriate handling, and overall gameplay make sure that you either learn to drive and respect your car and road or end up on a tree a county away.
The weather is not your friend
Did you like that sunny sky? Well, too bad. Now there's a lightning storm and you car's tires are not prepared for that. Or maybe there's some snow out of nowhere. Or fog that makes seeing anything more than your steering wheel is impossible. You can pick the weather types before some of your races, as well as how fast they'll shift.
