Meh, quite a fun game, but the physics are too much on the arcade side.Someone say need for speed?
Yeah, physics are strange. The most fun mode is speed challenge because of all the crashes, and I like the hack things that are out there for it. Lately I've been trying to make replicas of real life cars, like the Dodge Viper ACRMeh, quite a fun game, but the physics are too much on the arcade side.
I was bored the other day and attempted to powerslide / drift through a race, but I couldn't pull it off in a stock Viper. It'd just straighten out and yes, I had all assists off and was in King mode.

There is GRID which I think will be the next game in the race driver series by Codemasters, the first trailer didn't look good but the other videos do plus doesn't contain nearly as many cars as it's predecessors. That will be out June/July.

If you like rally, DiRT is really good. Need a beefy PC to get the best graphics though.
Speaking of which, I remembered the other day that I hadn't played that on my new PC, so I installed it. Unlike my old PC on which it barely ran, it now runs at 1920x1200 on max settings and easily hits the 30 FPS cap, heh.
Right on. You can turn off the 30 fps cap if you disable V-sync. I can get up to 50-60fps at 1024 x 768 (I don't have a widescreen monitor).
However, every time I'd start the game, play, and then quit, everything coming outta my speakers sounded like it was really shit bitrate (poor quality MP3). I switched it to software now and we'll see if that fixes it (haven't had a chance to play it since I switched).
There is a crack for 1.2.....you can get it at http://gamecopyworld.com/
Can't really remember what changed in 1.2, so it may not even be worth it.
Here's the change log for 1.2
* Fixed a bug where some saved games were being corrupted during the save process. Saved games are only usable by the PC and user that created them.
* Includes a new set of leaderboards. These are separate to the existing leaderboards which will remain visible for people playing version 1.0 or 1.1.
* Also includes fixes of patch 1.1
.....bascially adds a new leaderboard to remove the cheat times from 1.1
If you aren't having the corrupt save game problem and don't care about the leaderboard, then it probably isn't worth it. Gameplay remains the same.
That didn't work. I have V-sync off (it'd be locked at 60 FPS if I had it on I'd think). The 30 FPS is probably there as you can't really tell higher and it stops the game from going from high FPS to low FPS and back to high. Keeping it at 30 makes the game look smoother.
Although with my video card, maybe I should try V-Sync and see if I can get it to stick to 60...
The Gran Turismo series is great if you're after an easy arcade game that you can burn a few hours on.
