Steam reviews are a mixed bag. Lots of comments about not being able to feel what the car is doing and that the graphics are actually hit and miss.

The F2004 does sound great. Found the 49 equivalent very easy to drive. Expected it to be a bit of a death trap but was easy to catch a slide and control.

Decent saving if you need some new sim gear or maybe a beasty new graphics card!

Lotus 49?
Go and stand in the corner!

Nobody puts Mael in the corner.

Well done to the couple of guys that managed to get out of my way at the first hairpin when I missed my brake marker, being on the inside of the track, and barreled up the inside all locked up and smoking.

Haha so that was you! I don't run the virtual mirror but luckily I saw you coming fast on Helicorsa and pulled over to the left  ;D

Just gave all the new cars a run. Nice how they all feel so different.

Also tempted. I don't see any discount in steam my end though.
Strange, just double checked, clicked on the PC2store page and still says 17% 49.79USD, - 11% for deluxe too

Do you own the first one? Maybe giving a discount to people that do. Shows 59.99USD for me

Review from Sim Racing Paddock

Glad to make it in the end. The little guy fell asleep on the sofa so managed to jump straight into qually but didn't get too many laps done and started 10th.

Had a little battle with killa on lap 1 but then was hit from behind going into T1 on the second lap and lost about 8 places, was back in 19th. Someone apologied but unsure who it was. Was some good racing getting back through the pack and made up a few places, but being back there I wasn't able to put in a good lap time which then impacted my second race start position of 12th or 13th. Last night I did a 1:44.7 on the practice server so was hoping to be nearer the front.

Race 2 was good fun with a few good side by side battles with several people and I could spy my nemesis Mael close ahead. In front was a big group of cars but with my heavy restrictor I'd catch up through the first two sectors in the corners then loose them all again down the back straight. Somewhere nearing the end killa outbraked himself going down the inside of the last chicane and hit Diehard. I had to nearly stop to avoid it which lost the pack of cars ahead. Finished 10th but had hoped for a bit better overall.

School holidays next week so will miss the last round.

Probably gonna miss this one; little dude is unwell. May make race 2 but will see.

Lol, wouldn't help much Wally, they are Fanatec CSP's, which don't have pots but work by magnet sensors. I think the term is "Hall effect". For once I wish they had pots, much easier to fix.

Sounds like time for a pedal upgrade Rob!  8)
