GTR2 Evo questions
« on: December 02, 2008, 05:23:26 am »
Hello.  I was wondering how Evo compares to GTR2 for those of you who have played it.  For instance, how the physics feel, graphics, AI and such.

Also, I'm a bit confused.  I thought it was a standalone, like GTR2, but I see it as an addon for Race 07?  Could someone maybe clarify this situation?  And also what most people prefer to use it as?  Thanks!

Hmm.. well..

Physics are more forgiving, feels more arcadey. Graphics are better, FFB is ok.. depends too much on the car though.. Some like F3000, FBMW are numb feeling no matter what you do.
GTR evo has everything Race07 has included.. Its a really fun game, but.. something is just missing for me.. its great fun with the SJ boys.. but i dont race it alone, only do bit of time attacks.

Yeah...  They're definitely two completely different games.  Don't know if Simbin were intending to replace GTR2 when they brought out GTR Evo, but they haven't.

I'm not a big fan of GTR2 (other than as a base for the Power and Glory mod) - but I do enjoy Evo.  It's good a pretty good following here at SJ too.

GTL is still the game for me though.

So as for the add-on thing, GTR Evo doesn't actually need Race07, just there if you want.  Isn't there a BWTC mod for GTR (like the one in rFactor)?

Evo is an expansion to Race07, whether you buy it as an add-on to an existing Race07 install or buy it complete (in which case you will will get Race07 and Evo).

I like GTRe and think it's better than GTR2.  I also like your cat.   thumbs up
