    "I bought this for my family to play. It is very realistic. The dynamics and physics are true to life. The steering wheel responds as it should so it feels very lifelike. It's also a fun game to play that everyone in the family would love."

    "Alright, alright, alright. Here we go! I freaking love racing games. I'm way too chicken and clumsy to do that ish IRL, but in a game where it's totally safe to play with not using brakes? Cool! This game looks SUPER realistic and gave me lots of options for play. I can play alone or with others, practice if I wanna or jump right in. It's PC-based, which is fine, and also has VR support which I think is pretty neat. I can't say I'm a fan of the whole subscription deal. It's over $100 a year if picking the cheapest option, which is honestly kind of expensive if you compare it to other similar games that you only pay for once. I'd totally recommend if you're hardcore into racing, though."

    "While I do appreciate that Race Room has VR support, I felt that overall there are better games on the market. The AI felt awful and the steering was not as tight as it could be. If you are looking for a realistic racing game with VR, I would recommend looking at a different game."

    "Project cars 2 is nice ,but I do like Dirt Rally better, but I wish it gave you more control over the virtual camera, like project cars 2 Seems I can choose to lock it completely to the horizon or completely to the vehicle, but nothing in between. If locked to horizon on rougher terrain, the car cockpit will sometimes go borderline batshit crazy on me, bouncing around more than I care for. Locked to car is not comfortable to me and produces similar shakiness of the track and environment."
