RACE Pro – Saleen Lap Video

Below is the first pure gameplay video of Simbin’s upcoming RACE Pro simulation for the Xbox360.

We get to take a ride in the Saleen S7R around the British Brands Hatch circuit, looking very sharp due to the all-new Lizard engine.

    Looking good,I’m a bit jelous myself that a console gets the first lizard engine game,but I have a 360 so guess I will be getting it until a true PC version is made,
    Love the reflections of the glass building the corner before the start and finish straight

    ‘Race Pro with a pad? ‘
    You can see it cant you in the steering movement,lol :wink:

    Graphically, from inside the cockpit, it looks great.
    So why can’t the PC have this ? They can more than handle that. The cockpits are more detailed than we got with Race07.5 (GTR-E).
    Lets see what the next Simbin title brings for us PC users (where Simbin was born).
    This won’t be up to much on an X-Box because its not worth playing with anything but a wheel and the XBox wheel looks crap.

    this looks awesome, i also like the reflections on the buildings windows coming through the final turn. Great looking work by Simbin so far.

    i think they want make some money . but im not sure cause the 360 isnt the safest flatform . and i play with an 360 controller on pc . it works very well with bit training . the trigger and sticks are very precise . accelerate and brake with the trigger is much exactly then pedals .

  • steve

    …or the same . duno .

    I agree on the Xbox 360 pad, I sometimes use that too when taking cars for a very quick spin to make screenshots and such.

    Of course, it’s not like the G25 but you actually can race rFactor, GTR2 and such with this pad pretty good….all aids off of course.

    So the pad is no excuse for making games arcadish :wink:

    Is it me, or are there many fps breaks?

    It seems that Simbin is a bit too much stressed out at the moment (GTR-Evo, STCC, Race Pro). :roll: :roll: :roll:

  • JimmyB

    Yeah I use the 360 pad every now and then with GTR2 – it’s honestly not that bad. Nowhere near as fun as immersive as when using a wheel, but I’m only 1-2 seconds off my usual pace with it. With enough practice and the right setup I’m sure I could match my times with my DFP.

    I think the only real issue with pads is getting the driver animations to look right when you’re flicking the stick all over the place.

    Oh, and I’ve read that a demo will be out within the next three weeks apparently.

  • metalman

    yeah driving my own car with my xbox gamepad is very precise too it handle just like a stock wheel does.
    What i mean with this sarcastic comment is that a real sim isn’t quite driveble with a wheel.. but it’s true that it’s quite driveble with gtr2 and rfactor as well. but it doesn’t mean it’s boring at all. :D

    ps: sorry about the mistype :)

  • RJC_pt

    wasn’t mercedes that had a prototipy some years back that had a joystick instead a wheel? :lol: :lol: its no excuse to be totaly arcade, forza aint that bad, rbr on ps2… and newbies can use aids… some arcade games have them built in anyway… so maybie it wont be a codemasters’ish game….

  • R Kipker

    Well, I think it looks great, sounds great, and I own a 360 as well. So, though I would prefer it to be for the PC, I’ll take it…. Thanks SimBin!

    Should have ported this to PS3. Would be able to use all manner of wheels such as the G25. Still Race Pro does not look as good as GT5 so it’s no loss.

  • Stu

    I’ll buy a 360 for this game.

    Looks like another step forward for sims on consoles.

  • Crazy Bored

    I almost think it would be a good idea for them to make games like this that many people will buy. They could even make both realistic and arcade-like games. I am sure with knowledge of car physics they could make a car somehow feel awesome to drive and be very simple, but still relatively realistic. I know this would not be a popular idea here probably but you have to admit, different people would buy both, therefore having both means you get more people.

    Now, this the best part of what I think they should do. Use this money gained from these console games to help develop the sims quickly, because simulations are what they are truly good at creating.

    I’m not sure its about how good or fast you can be on a gamepad. It’s more like cars should be driven with wheels. ;)

    I bought my XBox360 for GTA-IV but I`ll grab this too just to justify the purchase more :)

  • UKFireman

    well as a driving freak ill be buying this (the only reason i went out to buy a cheap 360 was this and to play forza and PGR) Ill pick up a PS3 soon for GT5 as i can use my G25 with it but me heart lies with PC for racing and as much as im looking forward to Evo and STCC i am really looking forward to see what Simbin can do with the Lizard engine with the PC.

    Anyway back to topic and Race Pro does look nice and im looking forward to it

  • trebor901

    i still dont get why they’ve gone for the Xbox 360 though cos the PS3 is much better, has wheel support and is just an all round better console.

  • UKFireman

    I think they went for the 360 because it has a bigger fan base? also its easier to program the 360 compared to the ps3 and seeing as simbin were pc only it makes sense to cut their teeth on the 360.

  • Jorge

    That looks great. Put Race Driver Grid to shame in the gfx department. And if the physics is any good like GTR2 or Race 07, then it probably it’ll be a great game.

    Hope they bring it to the PC crowd, where it should belong first of all.

  • ForzaBarca88

    Wouldnt say it puts GRID to shame by any means, but definitely look like a great step up from gmotor2. Now lets see what rfactor 2 brings to the table for us pc folk :)
