Just picked it up this morning. The graphics are simply stunning. The realism is even more so. It is VERY hard to drive properly with no assists. Figured I'd run through career mode a bit before I even bother going online with it.

It starts you off in a Lamborghini at Monza for rookie training. You do laps in the dry, then in the wet.

Dry lap:

Wet lap:

The rain is something else. It will get you white knuckled.

Papyrus was the bomb back in the day. In 1998 they released the racing game that is to this day the benchmark for all racing games:

I still have it and still drive it from time to time.

It's popularity lasts to this day. In fact, they made a plugin series in Assetto Corsa of all the cars in that game. This is an old video of when that mod first came out 4 or 5 years ago. Me in my beloved Eagle Weslake T1G.

The graphics look amazing.

And the first race of EWOT Porsche turned out well. Joined a full grid Monza race but it was too late in qualifying to go get a lap in. (Wouldn't have mattered as these guys were FAST. They were running 1:48's. My average is around 1:51.)

Took a provisional and started 25th. Made my way up to 11th at the end. Got worried as the low fuel warning light started flashing on the last lap. It's a big video so it wasn't rendered yet as I post this.
