    Steep learning curve to this racer took a few hours of play time to get the hang of it. Fun game, good graphics, good simulation.

    Very realistic racing

    I've played the Forza series for many years, so going from the physics of Forza to this is night and day. That's a good thing and a bad thing. It's bad in that the learning curve is very steep in learning how to drive just about any vehicle in PC2. Because of the physics engine, driving in rain and snow is going to be a white-knuckle affair. While in forza, the main objective is to be first. In PC2, you'll be lucky to get 12th place. But this a game that requires a decent amount of time to invest in in order to be anywhere near being competitive. The good thing is that once you get a handle on how the cars will react in corners, going Straight, passing and breaking, the rewards of getting 4th or 5th place are very satisfying. But, because the developers have decided to make this as realistic as possible, it's going to put several people off from buying this game. And that makes the player base a lot smaller, which makes it hard to find an online race, or for the devs to invest in fixing certain aspects of the final build. Although a few patches have already been issued, I've to wonder for how much longer will they keep supporting this game. I can start Forza and get into a multiplayer game in no time. Although the players in forza are another story, when you get into an online race in PC2, the difference is huge : no racing to the 1st corner only to get punted into the stands, no hitting you on purpose, and no pile-ups while going full throttle sound a hairpin turn. So, while the game is rewarding WHEN you learn how to drive, it's getting to be good enough TO DRIVE that will keep the player base only to those who are willing to put in the time to learn it. It's a vicious cycle.

    Quite the rush

    First things first. I did not like the first Project Cars. It was quite unusable without a steering wheel/pedal setup. The only cars that were manageable were Le Mans style prototype racers with a controller. That's how bad it was. 50% throttle on a 250hp Ford Focus, into the fence you go. 5 hot laps in a 800-1000hp prototype racer....done without a scratch. Let's just say I'm glad I bought the first one used and managed to resell with only losing a couple bucks. Now the sequel. Steep learning curve, that is expected coming from Forza. And it's rewarding. Add a steering wheel and pedal setup, get ready for an adrenaline rush if you are new to this. Controller is still manageable, you won't feel left out this time around. I can't tell you how many hours on the same track left me with nothing but an ear to ear grin or an OMG moment. I'ven't even touched most of the other tracks. There are tons. Maybe less of the grand prix tracks, but that is okay. This game focuses on sports cars, and you will find some of the best sports car tracks in the world. I'm glad my local favorite is in here. Other games do. I'ven't even scratched the surface of what this game offers. I've been hot lapping the same track for hours and hours. There is still AI and MP races and events, weather effects and so on to explore. Love, love, love this game.
