i vote for no, because at the time i see no reason. maybe in 1-2 years, if any must have mod was released, but i don't believe.

I know myself & if I'm not mistaken it will be purchased immediately :D
...& how could I say no to a SIM with VOLVO :yeah:

With GTL lobby down for so long, it will certainly have consequences that people jump to other sim's :tears
... I think perhaps it is time to get together on something new :think:

I voted no because I own Race, so I won't buy more of the same, but I know what you mean Pelle, I just bought Race because of it's WTCC 87 section, the only way I can drive a 75 Turbo :naughty

I voted maybe. I'm with Henry on this one. Maybe when it has been around for a bit and there are some good add-ons, but like I said in a earlier thread if it's anything like GTR Evo which is way too arcade like then it will be a no for me, but we will see.

maybe the game will be interesting if it support the following features:

- full dynamic weather(incl. rain) of course online too
- multiplayer games with AI
- accelerated dynamic weather & day-night change online
- manual functional wipers with realistic effect an nozzle

I play Race07 time to time but always come back to GTL just because people here enjoy clean and fair racing. Theres about 10% possibility you can finish in Race07, in all other cases you end up in the wall or upside down. Take a look at replay from my last race in Macau. I couldnt even imagine such mess is possible :mad:
Thats why i doubt Race07/GTRE/RaceOn will ever become real simulator which means not only good physics but good spirit as well :(

Thanks for an entertaining replay...although it was short :eek:

I must admit, it's not much I have enjoyed viewing RaceOn :(

I don't think Race On will ever be at the top of the mountain.
Would I recommend it to a "first time" racer?..... No
GTR2 would get that honor and for 2 reasons.
First it has a great "default" setting. That is very important I think because A first timer will install the game, pick a car, hit "default" and start racing. (hopefully off line @ first)
His first experience might make or break his interest in the game.
Of the 3 games I have, GTL.. GTR2 & Race On........ GTR2 has the best default.
The 2nd reason GTR2 gets my vote is the never ending stream of new cars, skins and tracks. You can get everything from the Honda Civic to F1 3000.
Am I bummed out (not happy) that I bought it?
Not really. It's my way of supporting the game I guess.
