GTR2 Reviews

GTR2 has been out long enough now to make the rounds at the various gaming review sites and judging from the scores, they like it... they really like it! They'll get no argument from me. From what little I've played (my DFP is still on the fritz and no G25...yet), I think Simbin and 10tacle have a real winner on their hands. After checking out all the additions and improvements that came with GTR2, I much prefer it over the original game which I also thought was very good. Considering SimBin dropped Starforce for this release (big kudos there) and the game can be had for as little as $20 at BestBuy, there's no reason for sim racing fans not to have GTR2 on their hard drives. I'm sure some LFS players will disagree, they're funny like that ;). Check out the GTR2 reviews and a few widescreen screenshots below. Regarding the screenshots, I picked up a Samsung 205BW a couple weeks ago and the shots are at 1680x1050 (probably not dial-up friendly). I was really surprised by the difference a widescreen monitor makes for sim racing. I'll post some more screenshots from some other sims soon.

10/30/2006 Update: I added a couple more reviews to the bottom of the list. One is from Bit-Tech.net and the other is from SimHQ. The three part SimHQ review is easily the best of the bunch which probably comes as no surprise. Their review also contains some useful info for people that have already purchased the game so check it out if you haven't yet.

  1. […] I’ll be compiling a running list of reviews for SimBin’s WTCC Race Game similar to the list of GTR2 reviews I posted a while back. There’s only a couple of reviews so far but I’m sure there will be more in the coming weeks. I haven’t spent enough time with the game to offer any real impressions other than it doesn’t run nearly as well as GTR2 on my hardware (which is one of the reasons I haven’t played it much). The fact that RACE doesn’t seem to be as moddable as previous Simbin titles is also somewhat disappointing. Hopefully those clever and talented modders will find a work around but at this point, it doesn’t look good. Here’s the list of reviews. […]
