Ive driven the tryout version that has one track and two cars.. to me it feels the most believable thing, visual are very realistic and handling is simply awesome.. feels like a true sim if you compare it to anything else imo. Its definitely on the shopping list, just didnt get around to buying it yet.

I have read lots of good things about it, like what DP has said. But it is not complee by any means. it has no AI, it's online play is lacking, and from what i have read, the game it's self is somewhat unstable. but give it a shot. :)

Thanks for the response guys.

Just tried to download the trial/full installation however it seems to fail.

I will try later.

I played it sometime last year.  Overall my feelings were like when rfactor came out "hey, this will be cool when they finish it!"  The tire textures changing is sweet, but you'll find that it's just a handful of textures/bump maps applied.  Still neat that you have to scrub the dirt off your tires when you get back on track.  Hopefully they will develop the netcode and stability of the game further, this one has the potential to be fantastic.

I have had the original NetKar since its early realeas, and still have today.... Never got Pro, due to my love of GTR 1, when it came out.....

Nice game, very real, as far as handling and the likes..... Never ran online, as I used to only have a dial-up connection when it came out.

It is nice, and Pro looks much nicer.

Cheers

Jeff

bought this game about 14mths ago now and its not any different. I havnt played it for at least a year.

Dont buy it, its not a product youd pay money for yet. Dont get me wrong, the potential is insane and its a brillaint sim, but not worth the money compared to Rfactor, GTL and such IMHO.

I hear ya'll, I am just interested in the demo...

Buggers link is still fried :( or the connection between me and them is to thin or something, most I have gotten down is 42 MB out of 206MB no matter if I use a download assistant or not. Time of day makes no difference either.

Just keep trying I guess :)

I d/l the demo, and i'm impressed with the game... mind you, it took me ages to work out how to start the friggin' engine, as the cockpits are fully interactive, and you need to "switch" the ignition on and hold the starter using the mouse... epic!  Looks fantastic imo, and am considering this as a potential purchase, if only to improve my meagre skills!

To me it's a bit like Michaelangelo getting 3/4th of the way through painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling and thinking .."D'y know... I just can't be arsed doing the hands"
To get it to the state that it is now... an impeccable view into what it must be like to actually drive one of those things... and then.... well not much.
Who knows what goes on in the real world of the coding genius behind this, but if it ever gets fully formed it will be the new benchmark.

RockStar ... you drive these kind of things for real... what are your impressions?

Would it be just them I race too little? lol

One day I'll find the Sim that yanks my chain just right.  Then I'll forsake all forum, and general SJ responsibility completely.  I'll just race...  wouldn't that be weird?

Fair enough guys.  :)  Somehow I missed your replies completely. 

I spent the last few weeks doing pretty much anything BUT having fun.  I'll be around tomorrow (Sunday) for some laps.
