While Project CARS has been available for nearly a week now via Steam, many eager customers have been awaiting the physical release in the United States. Today, Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco have released Project CARS in it’s physical form.
You can buy Project CARS for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There is still very little news on the (surprisingly eagerly awaited) Wii U version, but it’s speculated to come out later this year. If you order the game from Gamestop, you will get a limited-edition metal case for the game (while supplies last).
I will say, from my point of view, Project CARS may be one of the most controversial and heated topics of 2015 so far. It seems that half the community swears by the title, and the other half is left with a sour taste in their mouth. While I’ll go further in-depth in a two-part review I’m planning for the title, my feelings on this are quite mixed.
I have sunk over 200 hours into the game since I bought into it in 2012, and around 15 hours since release, and I honestly have enjoyed some parts of it. Other parts have made me want to tear my wheel off and throw it through my screen (mostly the totally crazy AI and some broken physics on cars). All in all, I’d say it’s a solid racing title that beats out other console titles for the “racing experience”, but doesn’t beat out PC titles for the realism.
