    Feels like it could be fantastic with some updates

    Me experience is that the responses are too sensitive. I have played with a GT Thrustmaster 300 and the PS4 Dualshock but to not much luck. I have adjusted controller sensitivity, played with assists (TC, SM, ABS, etc.) both on and off as well as in varying combinations and can never really get a good feeling set-up. The included Race Engineer can only help so much, and some of the cars aren't very adjustable (I'm looking at you Ginetta!). I have played lots of racing games (including Project Cars 1) and am typically an "above average" racer but but at times (right car on right track) I feel unstoppable online (its pretty rare but does happen). In this game sometimes I struggle to even bring the car home... I feel like this could be a great game... looks good, seems realistic, plenty of car and track variety... I just can't get it to work for me very well, so apparently this game is not for me... So that's why I give 4 out of 5 stars b/c I feel part of this is my fault, but I think some updates could help. Currently wouldn't recommend to a friend based on my experiences and the other great racers out or coming out this year. Currently Playing Forza 7 on Pro drivatar difficulty and usually getting 1st. Will be picking up GT Sport today, was able to come out pretty good on the demo races here too (had to do some of the event maybe 10 times or so to get 1st, but I could get there).

    I haven't played this game a whole lot, mainly because of how complicated the game is based on the settings of the different cars. It is fun if you can get the right settings depending on what your driving, but people who don't know much if not anything about the mechanics might have a hard time trying to control the cars. I think it would be nice if they can make the game to where it has an easy mode in which case the settings for each car would be already set so you could control the cars a lot easier, and for people who wanna get into setting up the cars and mess with the settings they can, and make it a hard mode or something to that nature. That way you get the best of both worlds and can have fun no matter what!

    I'm in the minority I guess but I actually really like the handling on gamepad. I can correct from over steer, unroll the wheel properly coming out of a turn, and brake and throttle with comfort. I've always liked the project cars career, and in project cars 2 it's been fun so far. Unfortunately the AI still leaves a lot to be desired, and I've typically been faced with poor connections in multiplayer settings (despite having fast internet). I think it could've been a perfect game that is unfortunately hindered by some frame rate issues, inconsistent AI and at the moment spotty multiplayer connections. I still thoroughly enjoy it though, hopefully it gets better with time.

    With latest updates pCARS 2 is really good

    I waited on this tittle as I did not like what people were saying about the state of the game after release. I also did not like the way SMS left pCARS 1 with many bugs unresolved. Now with the latest updates to pCARS 2 it is a really enjoyable title and I now agree they have done a wonderful job. The physics and FFB are close to or equal but different to Assetto Corsa which is my baseline. pCARS 2 just has so much more to do in it and many more features. If you have a ps4 pro and an FFB wheel it is just even better!

    Good racing Sim

    My favorite game genre has always been SimCade racers. I have played all of the Gran Turismo series and several of the Forza games. Project Cars 2 is closer to the sim side of the Sim/Arcade spectrum. Has a bit of a learning curve, but very fun once you get dialed in. If you are looking for an Arcade racer like NFS or Burnout this probably won't be your game of choice. However if you love fine tuning your race cars and the experience of competing on different race teams you will enjoy the game.

    As good as gran turismo is, it’s nice to not have to worry about winning and getting money in order to build/buy a legit race car. You put in the disc, pick a car and drive. That simple. It’s much better playing with a wheel and pedal setup opposed to controller. Online is amazing and there’s a Facebook page for tournaments and series events!!! If you can’t afford to race in reality, this is the next best thing.

    Best Racing Sim

    Let me start off by saying that this is a Sim Racing game. It is by no means easy, but with that being said Project Cars 2 is insanely realistic, addicting and fun. I dabbled a bit into the career mode, but mostly been spending my time online. You race against a lot of respectable fellow racers who race clean. The tracks are a lot of fun, the cars have a lot of liveries to pick from. My one main grip is the sound issue, it seems to me the sound overall is too low of a volume.

    A challenging game with many options

    Project Cars 2 is a challenging game with an insane amount of customized options. I never played PC 1 so I can't compare the two, but since my favorite racing sim has let me down this generation (Gran Turismo) I had to look elsewhere. If you love racing games and want a challenge, then you'll enjoy the consistent framerate and nice visuals. My opinion cars look beautiful, tracks are a little plain, especially if you own a PS4 and have played DriveClub.

    Difficult but rewarding

    Unlike the Likes of Forza or Gran Turismo, this game is a full simulator and it's definitely not easy either. Recommend to play using a wheel but a controller does work pretty well unlike the original game. The handling is really good and you will probably lose a lot, but once you get the feel of it and start racing better it is quite rewarding. Graphics are so so compared to the console competition but I'm thoroughly enjoying playing this game.

    Realism to the point of being unfun

    I wish I could like this game more, but I'm constantly annoyed that I can't brake fast enough, can't turn well enough, and can't catch up to the pack if I brake early enough. I feel like this game was designed for a steering wheel, not a controller. If I had a ton of time to spend on the game, I'd probably get to the point of enjoying it more, but with my limited time for games, I just find it frustrating.

    Was debating on getting a competitor game that hadn’t come out in a while. Downloaded the demo for that game and after playing for a minute thought to myself, there’s something wrong here, popped up project cars the first one to compare and was like , if project cars looks, drives and sounds this good and it came out years earlier, the new one must be the bomb. And was not mistaken great game just a bit of a hard leaning curve.

    I never played the first game, so cannot compare the two. It appears to be a solid racing game with amazing visuals. The one off putting aspect is a tough learning curve. Even the jump in games provide difficult controls and it feels frustrating. For die hard racing fans I would say its probably a five star game. For anyone wanting to jump in and play within minutes, not so much.

    I picked this game up because of all its positive reviews. At first it was uncontrollable with a Thrustmaster T150 wheel. After researching online I found some videos that recommended different settings. They were major changes, but worked like a charm! Still a very challenging game, but being a simulator, even with one little mistake you're sliding off the track. Definitely worth a try!

    Sim style racing

    This game really has great graphics, but it is weighted so heavilty toward sim and steering wheel use. Playing with a controller is brutally tough to do. There is also a low number of cars in comparision to other driving games. Overall I think the package is good and the driving is amazing, its just not that accessible for all users. You need to be more sim style expert to make use of this game in the way intended.

    Graphics and rendering of cars, settings and atmosphere is outstanding, but have not been able to get force feedback to work acceptably - not nearly as natural as Assetto Corsa. Would be excellent if force feedback control worked, but cannot recommend unless am able to find settings for the force feedback that work.

    Project Cars 2 is the most realistic racing sim out there. The realism of the game is frightening. Compared to the 1st Project Cars, this game is light years ahead on the handling and track mapping. Online game play is great and the new driver rating system allows you to keep the reckless players out of your game play. 5 stars from me!

    I was initially excited for this game bases on reviews and YouTube clips. Had a good start w/the game but the game is very realistic (driving-wise, physics, etc) that I have difficulty keeping the car on the road, let alone racing. Good if you’re an experienced gamer. For me, now looking forward to Gran Turismo Sport

    Project Cars 2 is definitely not for everyone. It is definitely a simulation of real life racing, not some arcade racing that will ease you in. If you're into the sim style racing however, it's close to best in class. Paired with a good steering wheel and you're going to get some serious hours of white-knuckle racing out of this one.

    This game, while being realistic, takes too long for me to want to learn. I shouldn't have to spend hours tinkering with each type of car depending on the course type. While I can appreciate the realism and what went into creating it, I have no desire to take that much vtime to do a few minute race.

    Project Cars 2 is a comprehensive experience into racing. It looks great and throws you into the driver's seat. An amazing experience, but it is challenging. Not an arcade racer game, so make sure you are prepared for the details and tire burn. See you at the finish line.
