Project Cars

There has already been a dearth of decent racing games on the PC platform. Need for Speed Most Wanted 12 was acceptable but need for speed rivals was not able to raise any interest. The same old storyline and gameplay tactics, EA need to come up with something better as they are killing the Need for Speed brand name.

We have lots of hopes from Project Cars as it is made from taking real feedback from gamers and what they would like to see in a racing game, hope the game brings back the old glory days of PC racing when gamer's used to stay hooked to NFS High Stakes and Porsche Unleashed.

Through the purchase of Tool Packs players could contribute to development in roles including content creation for the game. The Game is projected to represent a realistic driving simulation. What you will find different in the Project Cars Vs a Gran Turismo or a Forza Motorsport, the game allows the player to choose between a variety of different motor-sports paths and grants immediate access to all included tracks and vehicles.

Speed Thrills: What thrills a Racer is high-speed wheel to wheel drive. If you find your adrenaline pumping as the accelerator go down, wait for the night mode to unleash. The night mode will make you sweat and fixate your eyes on the screen to avoid that one tiny mistake which can cost you, your coveted Number 1 spot.

The game characters like Liu Kang, Jade, Kitana, Kano, Jhonny Cage and Jax are the as interesting as their fighting styles and the fatality and brutalities they can do. The new factions mode in the game is quite interesting where player needs to choose one of the 5 fighting factions and move up the ranks slowly to the glory.
