Assetto Corsa Competizione Review: Laser-Focused Yet Fun Sim Racing

Here at the beginning of summer, Assetto Corsa Competizione sits in a rather unique position. It has the spotlight all to itself, at least until F1 2019 touches down later this month. While we first got to know it with our hands-on preview last year, we’re now back to put our spin on the retail release.

GT Omega Racing Apex Wheel Stand Review: A Stable Step Up

If you read my last review with the Thrustmaster T150, you know I’m new to playing sim racing games without a controller. I’m so new in fact that I had to mount my wheel to a TV tray in order to use it with my PS4. This isn’t exactly ideal.

Bus Simulator 18 Review: Who Knew Public Transit Could be Fun?

When it comes to sim games, to say I enjoy more lowkey titles is a bit of an understatement. Titles like American and Euro Truck Simulators, Mudrunner, and even Pure Farming often catch my eye. So when Stillalive Studios offered me the chance to check out Bus Simulator 18, I couldn’t resist.

DiRT Rally 2.0 Review: The New Rally Sim Standard

The debate is never-ending: is rally the hardest discipline in motorsports? To many real-world drivers it is. Talk to any long enough and you’ll get some variation on the “track racers drive one corner 1000 times, rally racers do 1000 corners once” line.

Trak Racer FS3 Wheel Stand Review

If I had to choose one word to describe my approach to sim racing hardware, it’d have to be “minimal.” For the vast majority of my make-believe career, I’ve plugged away with nothing more than a controller. When a brief stint with iRacing forced me to use a wheel, I snagged a Driving Force GT and improvised a rig using a folding dinner table, along with a large stack of books behind the featherweight pedals to keep them from sliding.

Thrustmaster T-GT Review

There’s a long history of officially-branded Gran Turismo wheels. Starting out with Logitech’s GT Force way back in the days of Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, Polyphony moved to a partnership with Thrustmaster almost a decade ago. The latest fruit of this collaboration is the wheel you see here, the T-GT.

OnRush PlayStation 4 Review

When word arrived that Evolution Studios alumni would be joining forces with Codemasters, racing game fans were intrigued by what would come next from the studio. With a portfolio that includes various original IPs and some of the best WRC games ever, Evolution brought serious talent to Codies that could be used for its various existing IP. However, in November 2017, the wraps were taken off OnRush – a brand new series that looked deceivingly like a certain Sony exclusive franchise.

Pure Farming 2018 Steam Review

Sim racing games are fantastic. Being able to drive everything from Japanese Kei cars to Italian exotics keeps me coming back again and again. However, like most of you, I do enjoy various other games, which is why I’m taking a look at a new farming simulator from Ice Flames.
