I’ve spent the past few days playing Forza Horizon 3, the sequel to my prior favorite racing game, Forza Horizon 2. The Forza Motorsport series has always been a great racing simulator, and undoubtedly the best current generation console option, but lacks the “fun factor” that an open world game offers.
Over the past few years, we’ve taken the opportunity to share our thoughts on a hand full of racing games and simulators. While we’re far from professional game reviewers, we are, first and foremost, car enthusiasts. That means we’ll take our automotive action however we can get it, and this time, that happens to be in the Dirt. This week, DiRT Rally hit store shelves, and ever since, we’ve struggled to put it down.
Well, that’s not entirely true.
Just over a week ago, we announced and teased the Project CARS x StanceWorks DLC Car pack – the latest addition to the digital racing world that Slightly Mad Studios has created. For those that missed the announcement, the latest DLC offers StanceWorks’s take on two iconic BMWs: the classic 2002, and its spiritual successor, the 1M. We gave the cars a host of mods and changes, ramping them up for more speed, more style, and more fun.
