GTR Evolution

Anybody else played?

As I said in my review on gamespot, it's not a revolution, I'd struggle to call it an evolution. In fact it's faults are quite up front and apparent. There's just not enough cars. As expansion packs go, the content they've added in is fantastic - the Koenigsegg CCX and CCGT, the Audi R8 and R8 GT, BMW Z4 M-GT and M3 GTR, Aston Martin DBR9 (with Gulf Racing paintjob ^-^), all detailed to the usual simbin standard.

But the fact they've added in such a great rendition of the full Nurburgring, complete with graffitti and carousel turns, yet there's not a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Porsche to be found is laregly dissapointing, as is the absence of the cars that made GTR2 interesting - MC12, t4400r, and the 350z racer. The package relies too heavilly on the content from Race07 to give it substance, and Honda Accords are just not that interesting. Even the much hyped "WTCC eXtreme" cars fail to excite. Actually I'm having trouble telling them apart from their standard versions. That and 15 different types of Caterham or Radical sr3/sr4.

But then there's the price. For owners of Race07 - $20, but Evolution can also be bought in a pack with race for not much more. In short it's good, perhaps even very good for those who've never played Race07. But perhaps not good enough for everyone else.

So far, on a keyboard with ABS set to low, traction control off and stability control on, I've done a 9:40, driving either the Lister Storm or the Z4 M-GT, around the endurance circuit (Nordschliefe + half GP circuit).

I have my copy coming from the States.

The lack of Porche's et al is I believe a result of Simbin not being able to get a license to include these makes in the game at this time.

I look forward to trying it out with the momo wheel when my holidays start.

I got a copy off of Uncle Torrence, and I'm just setting it up now. I'm expecting it to be a pretty sweet game, especially with my G25, and 28" monitor - woohoo!

the steering's kinda fucked - unless you slow down to a virtual crawl, whatever you've chosen to drive just goes straight ahead - I've mucked about with the settings, but to no avail....what's with that? GTR2 is fine, (so's GRID, DiRT, V8Supercars3) but this is BS. the graphics etc are great, but unless I'm missing something, or it has some problem with the G25, which it doesn't feel like, it starts to take the corner, but then just looses it, and goes straight, no matter what you do with the wheel - it's gonna get sacked very shortly.

Too high a sensetivity for your steering axis? You can change all that stuff in the advanced controls menu.

p.s. did you really have to steal a $17 game? Shame on you.

hangs head
$17 - really? I just assumed it was priced like other games, $80-100
if I get it working okay, I'll probably buy it - I like to try software before I fork out cash - unless it's ridiculously priced, and I need it/want it.

GTR Evolution expansion pack for Race'07 is available for $19.99 USD on Steam. If you don't own race'07, race'07+GTR Evolution can be purchased for $29.99 USD.

I believe its releases in Oz is sometime in October, so you may not be able to purchase it from Steam yet.
