Robert, as always, brilliant review.* One question for you or anyone who has played this.* Just want to be sure that you can jump in and drive for fun as mentioned in the review.* I had Dirt Rally and Project Cars 2 and didn't want to spend the time to set up cars for a long time to run some races.* Seems like a guy who loves the track/car selection can jump in and enjoy, correct?* To me, that's a great game...appeal to the casual gamer and to the sim community at the same time.

😎 Iím waiting for my copy to arrive, bought the physical disc last minute so I could get the preorder bonus for the International GT Cup (extra liveries and tracks like Bathurst, Kayalami etc) so of course itís on back order and I wonít get it until probably mid July.

I could cancel the order and get it from Amazon and have it tomorrow but then Iíd lose the preorder bonus, I think.

You can get the preorder bonus if you buy digitally as well. And the deal runs for the next 2 weeks, at least on PS4.

UPDATE: cancelled the physical preorder and bought it from Xbox store. Still got the bonus content.

This game is awesome but noooo don’t jump in and assume you can just set top hot laps. There’s a lot of finnese Involved, especially with a controller/game pad. I took a Ferrari at Monza and managed to blow the first chicane right off the bat lol. Third lap around I was getting the hang of things.

I can see some of the graphics things that make you cringe a little. All in all they’re pretty good but some of the animations are a bit jerky and some of the motions are a little...off.

I expect a patch to look at or rework some of this stuff. I’m gonna tool around a bit more and report back later, answer any questions etc.

I've gotten a few races in on the PS4. It's awesome. I just wish it was 60fps instead of 30, it had HDR available for the base PS4 (like The Show offers), full race replays, and adjustable visual settings like field of view or the steering animation. I love the cockpit views, but the steering animation is JARRING and messes with my brain to the point that I can't use them. The only in-car view I can use is the one without a steering wheel, but it looks weird.

But the actual racing is top-notch. That added with the fantastic audio and ability to create a custom championship makes me happy with the purchase. I know they can't do a patch for the framerate and won't add the ability to view full race replays, but fixing the horrid steering animation would go a loooooong way in improving the playability and immersion factor. Fingers are crossed for a fix.

I was considering purchasing this for my XBox One X/Thrustmaster TX system, but after learning that it doesn't support the Thrustmaster TX (and apparently a number of other popular steering wheels) and that it's locked at 30 FPS, I decided to pass.

EDIT: it seems that no wheels are supported on the XBox One at this time. Five of the nine user reviews on the XBox store page say it doesn't recognize their wheel. Hopefully, that's just a bug that they can patch.
