If the physics hold up then this could be an entertaining title - a fun distraction from the usual fare.

That said I'm going to wait for the feedback from the console guys - well I have to as I'll get this on steam.

I do hope, however, that it doesn't include running over angrily gesticulating drivers.

Seems like non-US PS4 users are having delays getting hold of the game. They've announced it's on plan, but don't have exact dates as to exactly when the delay will be over...

feel it kinda strange giving out a game with that name on after his controversys in the sport. i really don't know the sport or the guy but the accident even reached norway.

It wouldn't be a proper Tony Sim if a driver couldn't get out of his car, with THC in his system and run at a sprinter on a hot track and get mowed over.
But that wasn't Stewarts fault...

Does anyone remember ratbag games and their Sprint cars games? They were pretty good for the day.
Yes indeed, the Ratbag games (both the Sprint Cars and Late Models) were fantastic good fun at the time (1999-2000) and I've wished for a modern day equivalent for many years. Fingers crossed that this is it.

If it is based on the same Unity engine and platform of the Heat series I would not get my hopes up, at least not on PC - both GUI and settings will be oriented towards consoles.

Monster is going back to its roots and that's good for them, the footage looks like a more refined / expanded version of the current dirt component in Heat. Car models look a bit more detailed, maybe the handling is also more refined. The dirt racing can be fun - not current iRacing level, not by a long shot, but fun nonetheless. I had more fun time with the dirt racing in Heat 3 than the other classes.

Benefit of the doubt. Monster does have strong roots here, but their current engine, or how they have used it...dunno. Reminds me of George W. and fooling me more than once.

Unless it has minimum Track IR , It will be a non event for me, but it does look a promising release.

We all saw the video. Don't bother trying to use celebrity-level legal chicanery to excuse the inexcusable. Guilty in every way except via the formality of the justice system. Remind you of anyone else recently?
