Project CARS release date

The Project CARS release date has shifted to April 2nd 2015. Available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, the game has been delayed slightly in order for the mechanics to do some fine tuning under the bonnet before people get to take it for a full test drive. Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios Ian Bell is quoted as saying “Moving a release date was not an easy decision to make, as we know our fans are eager to get their hands-on on Project CARS, but we know that these extra days will allow us to provide the best...

Forza Horizon 0

Forza Horizon review

Forza Horizon attempts to inject some fun into the racing genre by way of a festival atmosphere in Colorado. Instead of just racing around stale race tracks and roads you’re now put into a story in the single player campaign as a nobody entering the Horizon festival in position 250 trying to make their way to number one. You’ll do this by exploring the state, entering races and challenges and being a generally skilful driver as you buy better cars and win them from a number of colourful rivals. Developer Playground have taken the incredible physics and car models from...

Forza Motorsport 4 review

Forza Motorsport 4 is the latest realistic driving game developed by Turn 10 and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox 360. If you’re familiar with the series you’ll know this one’s all about realism and less about the thrill of police chases or throwing red shells at your opponents. Not a bad thing but definitely a game for car enthusiasts who want to get their hands on cars they could only dream of or watch Jeremy Clarkson driving about on Top Gear. Speaking of which they’ve injected a bit of personality into the game with the addition of challenges...

Nascar 2011 The Game release date

Motor Racing is popular all around the world but for whatever reason, Nascar just hasn’t taken off outside of North America, Mexico and Canada. Generally I consider myself a Formula One guy but I do take note of other motor-sports because I am a bit of a speed junkie. You probably already know that Nascar is well known for its racing on banked oval circuits and has plenty of crashes. The Nascar 2011 release date is March 29th 2011 and it promises to deliver the most realistic and gorgeous Nascar action in a video game to date. Got to be...

F1 2010 review

Formula One eh? That’s the one where cars get raced around and around for two hours isn’t it? I happen to have been a fan of F1 for what must be 15 odd years now. So you don’t have to worry about me not knowing the difference between Downforce and G-Force. Last year I was one of the few who actually bothered to review the Wii exclusive F1 2009 from Codemasters: http://wiigamereview.com/reviews/formula-1-f1-2009-for-wii-review/ . I knew at the time that the game was just an over ambitious beta test for the 2010 title, but funnily enough; it’s still the second best...

Formula 1 F1 2009 review

Motor Racing seems to be one of those sports that people either love or hate. Oddly enough I’m just about to contradict that by saying that I fall somewhere in-between. I used to really enjoy Formula One but I have found that my enjoyment has dwindled somewhat over the last few seasons. All that said, I do love a good racing simulation and in the past I’ve spent many an hour pretending to race a car on my TV or PC monitor, in fact I still play Live For Speed every weekend and to this day have fond memories of...
