I want supporting evidence the game is good like reviews. The page is way too sparce to support why this is a good solution. This is like a person coming up to me and saying I am the best juggler in the world then doesnt actually prove it."

I just get my mom to turn the fan on really high and lift the side of the couch that coincides with which way I'm turning on the game and it's like I'm really driving. I'm barely able to finish my tendies because I'm so excited."

Project CARS 2 has a tremendous number of real-life cars that I drove on a variety of courses. The visuals and day-night cycles are true to life and the physics engine is realistic, whether I was driving in good weather or bad conditions.
