Best car racing game?

I want a racing sim for my new comp. Something that will actually need the speed my computer has. Something like Formula 1 or Sports Car racing...being able to tweak the cars and even modify them would be great.

 

Any help? Thanks...

The latest F1 game that I know of is GP4

 

My family and some friends used to setup huge lanparties and run the season with about 10 of us racing different teams. It was a blast. We started with GP1...everyone has kids now so it's harder to do...so it stopped. :(

 

This seems like a sick game too.

 

I gotta keep looking... :nod:

Well i dont know if its available in the US but TOCA Race Driver 3 has recently come out on the other side of the pond (UK).

 

Its always been known for being a good simulation with lots of tracks and cars - single seaters, touring, monster trucks to name a few.

 

The new F1 season starts this month so some new games should be on their way.

Yeap, on the 15th. I can't wait!

 

Hoping Schumi will bring home number 8 and the new qualifing rules are going to be interesting.

 

I'm so excited I could pee!

Need for speed most wanted was a lot of funI never really got into a racing game like that in years. It is very worth checking out expecaly with all the eyecandy

It's a fun arcarde type of racing... not too much of a sim though. But no doubt a blast.

GT legends, i have just tried the demo, but is sure was a lot of eyecandy and realistic handling.

 

the cars are vintage (pre 80's) and besides som awsome visuals, the sound of the engines is just perfect! you can grab a downloadable demo from here: http://www.gamershell.com/download_10319.shtml

 

review here: http://www.driverheaven.net/articles/GTL%20Review/

 

full game has multiplayer mode, but the demo is just plain singleplayer :)

 

 

p.s: toca racedriver is a great looking game, and does not hog too much resources, with all eyecandy on and at 1024 x 768 i get from 210 - 250 fps
