Project Cars III PC Game Review
Motorsport simulation games seem to be a genre that has a lot of enthusiasts, even though in recent years many driving games have shifted their focus from realism to a more arcade feel. Still, with the help of Project Cars, the genre might be back where it belongs.
Just like stated above, Project Cars is a game that places a lot of emphasis on the realism of the driving simulation rather than other details, even though it comes with realistic environments. Some might consider it similar to Gran Turismo and other similar titles and they are right, since the game is filled with details that really make you feel like sitting on the race track. There are a few differences with the aforementioned title, and that comes from the fact that Project Cars comes with a more of a sandbox approach, so you are free to choose any type of motorsport that you want, as you are not limited to a single one.
In addition to that, Project Cars manages to bring a variety of paths that you can take, and you can immediately access all the vehicles and track, removing the constant need to unlock new tracks that many games are offering, something that you might expect in this regard.
In order to bring the desired realism, Project Cars will portray every race just like it happens in real life, and that means that each race will span over multiple days and it will have a shakedown, qualifications and it will include the race on its own as well.
When it comes to further addition to realism, Project Cars comes with a fully dynamic weather system and lighting, so the weather condition is going to play a major role in this particular game, which is quite impressive to say the least!
Project Cars provides various types of driver aids, which can help both those that use a keyboard or a racing wheel. It’s important to note that Project Cars have managed to add even more realism to the experience by working with various racing drivers from formula racing and touring car competitions.
There’s quite a lot of content in Project Cars, as you can get close to 70 different cars with around 50 cars that can be driven. More will be added for sure in the near future, which means that you can spend a lot of time racing here.
It’s important to note that Project Cars has complete support for Oculus Rift, something which takes the experience to a whole new level.
Graphics and sounds
Project Cars has a great level of detail, and each of the included track is as close as possible to the real deal. The car design is very realistic too, and the same can be said by the animations, backgrounds and in-car controls. Everything is created in such a way so that you will actually feel like driving in a racing car, and that’s one of the most interesting experiences you can get. Car sounds are realistic too, and the in-game music is suitable for the backgrounds, without too many notable tracks.
Project Cars is a fast paced game that brings utter realism to the racing simulation world. It’s a fun and highly addictive game, one that you will be playing for a very long time if you are a fan of action packed, stellar driving experiences. Check this game out, as this is a masterpiece!
