  • Project CARS 2 was released on Friday, September 22nd, 2017 with loads of hype as the sequel to Project CARS, which was released in May of 2015. Both games were developed by Slightly Mad Studios. While Project CARS 2 features so much more than just IndyCars, this review will only cover the IndyCar aspect of the game.\nIndyCar does not have its own game, so Project CARS 2 was a great addition given the fact that games with IndyCars in them are rare and there are several real IndyCar liveries to choose from in terms of both the Honda and Chevrolet cars on both the oval tracks and the road and street courses. The game is definitely worth it in that respect.\nHowever, the realism in regard to how IndyCar races actually go down just isn\u2019t there, particularly on the oval tracks. If you opt to do a manual formation lap, the whole field will be spread out before the race even goes green, and there are no restarts to pack things up again, which can make things annoying given how quickly the leaders separate from the pack on some of the big ovals especially after wrecks, which isn\u2019t like IndyCar in real life.\n\n \n Next:\u00a0Wrecks and names\n \n"},"title":"IndyCar on Project CARS 2 game review - A great game, but improvements needed","permalink":"https:\/\/\/2017\/10\/17\/indycar-project-cars-2-game-review-great-game-improvements-needed\/2\/","shortCodeTitle":null,"content":"\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tINDIANAPOLIS, IN \u2013 MAY 28: Alexander Rossi, driver of the #98 NAPA Auto Parts Honda (Photo by Jared C. Tilton\/Getty Images)\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\nWrecks and names\nThe wrecks also aren\u2019t very realistic. Take Indianapolis Motor Speedway for instance. At the track, several cars always seem to drive through the grass in the first turn of the first lap. This would typically cause a massive wreck in the Indianapolis 500, but not in Project CARS 2.\nWhen a wreck does occur, however, it is blown way out of proportion and literally every car in the field just starts smashing into every other car in the field, which is completely unrealistic seeing as how the cars aren\u2019t going nearly as fast as they would be in real life on a track like Indianapolis Motor Speedway.\n\nAlso, IndyCar drivers\u2019 names aren\u2019t attached to their cars. Instead, other names are used. While this makes sense due to licensing issues, it does take away from what fans want in an IndyCar game, and it leaves them wanting a F1 2017-like IndyCar game each year.\nPlus, the cars used in Project CARS 2 are last year\u2019s cars, not this past year\u2019s cars, and with the changes to the actual cars next season, the IndyCar version of the game will unfortunately become completely outdated by March of 2018. Given the fact that it took almost two and a half years for the sequel to Project CARS to be released, this is a bit disheartening.\n\n \n Next:\u00a0Oval and road\/street course cars\n \n","title":"IndyCar on Project CARS 2 game review - A great game, but improvements needed","permalink":"https:\/\/\/2017\/10\/17\/indycar-project-cars-2-game-review-great-game-improvements-needed\/3\/","shortCodeTitle":null,"content":"\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tSONOMA, CA \u2013 SEPTEMBER 17: Drivers race on the first lap of the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma (Photo by Lachlan Cunningham\/Getty Images)\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\nOval and road\/street course cars\nAnother unfortunate thing about Project CARS 2 is that you can\u2019t guarantee that you will have all oval cars and all road and street course cars in the same race while including both Honda and Chevrolet cars.\u00a0 If you enable both Honda and Chevrolet cars, you may get multiple sets of two cars with the same livery while one is an oval car and the other is a road and street course car whether you\u2019re racing on an oval or a road or street course.\n\t\tMore from IndyCar\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\tIndyCar: What Andretti needs to do throughout 2023\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\tNASCAR decision could influence Jimmie Johnson decision\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\tNASCAR: Jimmie Johnson facing possible schedule conflict\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\tIndyCar: 5 ovals that could fill the schedule gaps\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\tIndyCar: The major downside after a strong opening race\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\nThe only way to guarantee all oval cars or all road and street course cars is by limiting the field to\u00a0only Honda cars or\u00a0only Chevrolet cars and selecting whether you want to drive an oval car or a road and street course car.\nThis takes away from the realism of the racing, as you would never have an oval car driving at a track like Watkins Glen or Sonoma, but you would have both Honda and Chevrolet road course cars doing so at the same time. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee only oval or road and street course cars in a race featuring both Honda and Chevrolet cars.\nWhile this may seem like a bad review, Project CARS 2 is still definitely worth it for $59.99 even if you only plan on driving IndyCars. Of the 16 tracks on this past season\u2019s IndyCar schedule, seven of them are in the game, and there are plenty of other great tracks that IndyCar may never actually race on that are cool to have virtual IndyCar races on in Project CARS 2.\nNext: Five reasons destroying Walt Disney World Speedway was a mistake\n\n\nIn general, particularly on the road and street courses, the racing action is actually pretty realistic. Even some of the oval races can be enjoyable if you know what you\u2019re doing and select decent settings. You can also customize the difficulty as well as the AI aggression level in addition to the lap amount of each race and the extent that damage can affect however many cars you choose to put in the race. Overall, the game is a good buy.\nHave you played the new Project CARS 2 game yet?
