GSY Tech PC PS4 Xbox One

When talking about a stress test, one always figures only the system will be concerned. Unfortunately, with Project CARS, the person in charge of capturing the video can also be put under a lot of stress. Take the Azur Circuit with Formula C cars for example, well, we can tell hard it's hard to remain calm even when all you want to do is to capture a clean lap with 18 AI. Details inside.

You all know that we've really been enjoying our time on Project CARS, but it's hard not to get annoyed by the AI problems that still persist in specific conditions. The Azur Circuit and its first corner are indeed as deadly as ever, with usually 2 to 3 cars that get completely wrecked, making it really hard not to hit someone. Even when you manage to get past it alive, there's a good chance an AI driver will bump into you from behind, which basically equals to a death sentence when you're driving a Formula C in the wet. You can't possibly imagine the number of retries we've had to make to get that one lap captured. It's clearly not great driving, but you need to take into account the state we were in at that point.

Enough with the AI though. Other than performance in the rain at Monaco, what we wanted to show with these videos was the new option which allows to turn off temporal antialiasing. In both extracts, it was set to off, and as you can see, the game still looks very clean. After several performance patches, it is now safe to say that Slightly Mad Studios have proven that their mastery of current gen hardware, even if there is certainly room for improvement in the future - tearing is too visible for example. Once the AI issues and the few strange collisions (when a car comes from behind and manages to swoop over the vehicle it hits) are fixed, there won't be much left to complain, at least, as far as we're concerned.

Actually the first post was spam was a direct link to that person's instagram, which has no place here (and in the other thread she (?) posted in. Both comments should have been BTed. Plus, it's not about being politically correct, it's about good manners (since apparently that first poster is a girl). Whether or not 2121 was being "provocative" makes no difference to us, we don't really find it funny to see guys talking this way. It might be because we're French and so romantic. To finish, the comment had nothing to do with the subject matter here, so why would you be surprised we gave it the BT treatment?

I´m glad for the sincere look on games from GSY. No over-hyped blind 10/10 reviews and it´s always great to know, if there are some issues still present and maybe wait with the product purchase. Thanks. Still....the game looks unreal!

The 1.4 patch hasn't been released yet on XB1 but I think there is still a lot of stuff to patch.

The AI still performs on heavy rain like they are on dry tarmac. In the boring career mode, if you start a race in heavy rain you might as well retire. It's not worth the 30 race restarts because you just can't be competitive with the fake AI in the rain.

And doing endurance races is not recommended if you want your mind or controller intact after the game fucks you with a glitch after racing for hours. Just look at this poor fellow gamer trying to do a 24 hours race in real time with 30 minutes to go - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g04iFqwlFPw

Just telling it like it is....unlike most reviews on major sites. PC Gamer called this “the most polished racer I’ve played in a while” lol

I pre-ordered this and regretted it as it was nearly impossible to play with a controller at first. I still don't believe the game is complete as we're still waiting for patches. Meanwhile SMS feels it's time to start dishing out the paid DLC.

There's nothing wrong with the game in terms of controls, had no issues with a pad on pc version of the game before any patches were out.
