Figured with all the pre-hype that's going on I'd open the conversation on the upcoming PCars 2.
Is anyone planning on getting it?
My story behind PCars 1 and AC is interesting. I've always loved a good, solid career mode and PCars was the closest thing I'd had to a Gran Turismo or Forza of any kind (don't flame me... i didn't know any better at the time).
I loved AC from the outset; but did find it quite to be a hot lap simulator. the physics were good, but at the time of purchase i didn't really know anything about online MP racing so i felt somewhat letdown by the structure of progression offered.
I persisted with PCars and A/C kind of took a back seat. It had a lot going for it, and i admit that i was able to sink 90 hours of predominantly single player racing into it. Dynamic lighting, weather events, a good spread of vehicles etc. but there was something in the physics dept that i couldn't quite put my finger on that never immersed me the way A/C did.
For all early access reviews I've read/seen on youtube the physics and tire modelling is greatly improved and i have to admit i'm likely to go down the rabbit hole again (though this time not at the expense of AC).
Figured I'd ask if anyone else is considering giving it a shot?
