Is it worth buying?

Discussion in 'rFactor 2' started by William Moody, Apr 25, 2012.

  1. Hi am thinking of buyin this game is it worth it?
     
  2. If what you're after is a full and complete racing sim right this second, then no it's not. Wait for the final release.

    If you understand that rF2 is currently an open beta and are able to put up with a few issues here and there for a few more months, then yes it is.

  3. I would suggest yes.

    try it for a bit, see if you like it.

    SOme of the mods available are awful, some are really very good, most are capable and offer some new aspects.

    Genrally I would say its worth getting, if only to help the guys develop it with some wonga. But to be honest I played it for a couple of months then left it alone until it is finished.

    Dont expect a full game, just expect a beat with flaws and issues, but the gameplay alone and FFB is very good.

    In my opinion the braking in this game is unsurpassed. FFB is some cars also, but in others it is way, way off the mark
     
  4. Well am trying to decide to go for this or iracing, does rfactor have some kind of anti cheat ?
     
  5. rf2 good for upper body workout....

  6. As far as i have noticed, rF1 and rF2 does not have that huge amount of cheaters that many other games have.. and if you cheat it will be noticed easyer..

    I say the game is worth buying now, but i dont expect the game to be troublefree atm...

    The thing is about rF2 is that now it is quite good, but it will only get better with amazing mods in development from CTDP, Mak Corp etc.

    What I will say is that it definitely WILL be worth it; it might not be the best value for money right now, but once all of the really amazing mods are released, it will become the new benchmark in sim racing.

    Basically? Buy it. You will anyway eventually.

    Cheers,
    Chris
     
  8. There are children in this site so its better to keep my dirty thoughts private. :p

    rFactor 2 was definitely worth of buying and is keeps getting better with new updates and content.
     
  9. I objectively can't see how a beta of anything could be worth $50+. When it's done, sure, but now, no.
     
  10. Huge, stupid looking grin in my face when driving Renault Megane┬┤s or old Formula┬┤s in almost any given track is the reason for me.Basically its a best driving experience I have ever felt in a game. :)

    Its not pretty and its buggy as hell but I just dont care.
    Its just like me. :p

    But, if you wait, you pay 50 for the full version. Now you pay 50 for, uhm, beta and full.
     
  12. Sure, but if you want to do some decent racing now, why would you want a beta of a game, if it's "buggy as hell"?
     

  13. Dont take that too literally. :)

    RFactor 2 beta has two month refund policy so its a safe buy in the case you dont like it. :)

  14. The first build was a joke for FPS, but lately it seems ok, also, I can't say I've experienced many issues online...
     
  15. It's well documented that FPS varies greatly from system to system. I've had no issues from day one, and my rig is four years old. There's also people with far better rigs that are still having issues.

    Other that the issues revolving around features which are either unfinished or have not yet been implemented, I've had almost no problems at all. It's certainly not complete, but it's not buggy as hell either.

    Talk to the guys who participate in the GT's and F3's. Then I am sure you will rethink your statement :)

    To me, its simple. I have NEVER, since I started simracing, had SO much fun with a game as I have had with rf2. Yes, there are bugs, but they mostly appear in preperation and mod creation (the things the endusers do NOT have to do....). To me, as organizer of the events, a lot of bugs are visible. To the end user, a lot are NOT visible. The only ones they see, are the ones with f.i. HDR which works not properly. Turn HDR off, and there are no issues with it. Simple as that.

    To me, these 50 euros where the best 50 I spend on a game. Ever.....
     
  17. Its not about you in a Beta its about the game. :)
    I for example like to be in the progress of a game. :)
     
  18. Yes, that's why I used the word objectively. No game in a beta stage, not complete, with bugs, and half a dozen of cars and tracks, is worth $50. When it's done, sure, but now? Objectively no. You people scare me :p
     
  19. I agree with you if we had to pay to get in the Beta and needed to pay for the full game also afterwards. But thats thats not the case here. :)

    Indeed. It's not paying for the BETA. Its a pre-purchase, with the option to play the beta before the game is final.

    What you but, is the year subscription to the game when it's finished...
