The Game Review

Coming out in 2017, Project CARS 2 has some tough competition in the genre, namely the Forza series and Sony’s Gran Turismo.

Given the weight those two titans carry in the market, the Project CARS series has to have something to set it apart and it does, in the form of sandbox racing elements.

What this means in terms of gameplay is that almost all of the original game options are available to the player from the start and, rather than focusing on “unlocking” things, emphasizes player choices and options.

All career paths are available from the beginning as well as most of the vehicles.

Making use of an updated version of the Madness Engine that powers the Need for Speed series, the game offers races that can simulate realistic physics, weather, and the car’s abilities.

The game also has a weather system as well as a day-and-night cycle to complement an already lush backdrop of tracks.

Drawn from real-world locations, most of the tracks are recreations of some of motorsport’s most legendary venues. Similarly, the vehicles on offer are modeled after their real-world counterparts.

As is almost requisite with any title these days, Project CARS 2 has a vibrant and robust multiplayer community. Players can choose between a variety of online competitive modes and the game even has eSports aspirations baked into it.

Perhaps the game’s single biggest strength is its loving attention to detail.

From vehicle physics to tire design, nearly everything in this title, as in the game before it, projects a fidelity to actual racing cars and accessories that it bears merit and mention.

Best of all for gamers who love to be on the bleeding edge of everything current in game design is that Project CARS 2 offers a remarkable VR experience. The option to play in a traditional format or using a VR headset gives PC2 another strength in its column and, again, sets it apart from its competition.

Arriving to mixed reactions from critics when it first came out, one theme that was consistent among those opinions is that the game offered a ton of content. The degree to which someone likes or even enjoys the game is also correlated with how willing the person is to explore the game’s many customization offerings and track options.

Existing in a genre that is filled with games that are either fully simulation or totally arcade, Project CARS 2’s attempt at something different makes it a game worthy of mention among the best.
