    This is currently half price on Steam, heard mixed things about it, is it worth a punt for £14.99?

    Depends on what you're looking for. It's not a steep price.

    IMO, Automobilista is worth the full price.

    Maybe. I suppose it depends on what you want. If you want one of the best evolutions in Race sim history and one of the best in race physics and FFB then it might be worth a punt. But if you don't want any of that, look elsewhere.

    It's not no, not at all, just read it hasn't really moved things along from the rFactor days, on the other had I've read the Stock cars are ace fun! Gotta be worth a go for the price

    In my opinion, yes. Can you name anything better?

    I don't know, I haven't played it, hence the question. AC and Raceroom are my 2 main ones at the moment.

    Well at that price, it won't break the bank. The AMS Race club here is also very well attended and run.

    If your PC can run AC and Raceroom then it should be able to run Automobilista at max settings with a good framerate. There's always lots of help here at Race Department and at Reiza's forum.

    Have you seen this fair and comprehensive review?

    Are you getting it for that price at G2A? That is the best prices I have found for any Steam games. ;)

    to be honest I wouldn`t buy it for 14.99 .....

    ... wait till it is for full price .. game is worth it and devs deserve it ;) .... you`ll get one of TOP 2 or TOP 3 sims on market ... I recommend getting Seasson pass too for all those DLCs (released and upcomming)

    I think it is. if you like sim, you will like it. I think, as said many times already in previous answers, it is the $h1t, personally the best sim on the market.
    And you cannot go wrong at that price. I'm sure you'll be getting some DLC too, just because you'll like it.

    These two quotes together are funny since Raceroom also has roots in gMotor 2. And "just read it hasn't..." where? Probably some retard.

    If you enjoy the base content then definitely think about at least getting the Brit Pack as the quality of the cars and tracks in that pack have certainly gone up a notch.

    You can also enhance your experience by adding some good mods like Patrick's track megapack, CART Xtreme, Porsche RSR and also the BTCC skins for the Marcas cars. Plus some F1 skins and the EEC GT3/Le Mans mods from outside RD.
