    Racing beyond limits

    Screenshot 1 Forget NFS or Burnout, serious gamers looking for simulation racing will find GTR Evolution the best option for virtual reality racing. With simulation racers becoming exclusive titles for video game consoles, PC gamers will have a reason to smile as GTR evolution can be played exclusively on their Gaming PC.

    GTR Evolution is too close to the real thing with prefect replicas of original tracks used in the real World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) races. You will certainly marvel at the extensive details that have gone into this game. The full version bundle includes RACE 07, the official WTCC game. The version features all 2006 and 2007 WTCC cars and tracks with an official WTCC license. GTR evolution and RACE 07 combines the elements of Sim-racing with sports cars, touring cars, formula cars and, of course GT cars! GTR evolution has 12 classes of 49 unique cars with over 500 variations. The GT championship has 4 different classes of 26 brand new GT car models. Its 19 tracks and 40 different layouts certainly adds some excitement to virtual reality racing. The cars on the circuit are rendered finely making GTR more realistic.

    You can certainly feel the raw power of driving a 275bhp supercar as you hit the clutch and shift the gear to pass other drivers and emerge triumphant. The extended dashboard with realistic hands holding the steering provides a sense of realism that may be absent in most racing games. The sounds are incredible enough as it has outstanding audio effects that differ from car to car. Playing GTR with a keyboard may affect the virtual ‘feel’ of the game adversely. It is recommended to have a steering wheel controller system attached with the PC to enjoy till the last drop.

    The most important factor of GTR evolution is its precision. You need to brake at the right moment to hit the corner, bearing in mind the right speed. You will find yourselves driving in the streets of Macau or Karussel or the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleif, all closely modeled and detailed as in real life.

    Gamers may be disappointed as GTR has some keyboard limitations thanks to the steering wheel controller system. Moreover, it is an expansion pack of RACE 07 that was released last year and has some issues with installations, especially with Valve’s Steam. GTR evolution has given PC gamers an excellent simulation title. Fasten your seatbelts gentlemen, its race day.
