Is this game worth getting?
« on: January 19, 2015, 10:56:07 pm »
As I've only got FIFA, I've been looking at this game and wondering whether it's worth getting.

Can anyone give me an idea of what the game is like and the good and bad things about it :)

19.99 on the PS Store, or i think you can pick it up on disk second hand for 20 or less. At that price, on disk, its worth trying as you will probably only loose a few quid.

As it stands, i think it is good. A solid 7 or 7.5. When private lobbies are patched in (along with replays the game director said today), it will be an 8 or 8.5 in my opinion. The handling is more realistic than NFS, but is by no means a sim. But this makes it a 'fun' game i think, something to compliment more serious racers, i.e. pCARS.

Thanks Fish, I saw it on the PS store but it was listed as an upgrade so I assumed it was a DLC if you had the full game. Might give it a bash then.

Has pCars been released? That looked epic from the bits I'd seen of it

Nope, it is the full game, just advertised as an 'upgrade'. Not sure why.

I have it, found it incredibly Arcady and overall a tedious game. Perhaps because I prefer more sim oriented

Perhaps my opinion is of that because I'm on the controller also for a change.

20 is nothing, would never pay 39.99 or full price for example

Very misleading, luckily I know now and I'll purchase it tomorrow I reckon. At 20 it's worth trying at least :)

I think it is because they had expected to have released the PS Plus freebie version by now, and this upgrade version (which has been on the store since the start along with the full price version) was mean't to be the route for most people getting the game.

The reduction in price to 20 makes me wonder if they will be releasing the Plus version, or if they do it won't be for a good few months still even now.
