Video Comparison - Project CARS: GOTY Edition vs. Forza Motorsport 6 - Road Americaby Kirby Yablonski
We here at XBA recently reviewed Project CARS: Game of the Year Edition. Our verdict was that it was a simulation racing game that deserved a close look for fans of the genre; however, we also warned that the "casual" racing fan may find it too punishing. You can check out the full review right HERE.
Forza Motorsport 6 is Microsoft's premier circuit racing game that was released last year (September 2015). It too provides a deep and engaging experience, with a ton of cars to choose from and racing experience that can be tailored from more simulation to very arcade like, the latter being for the casual racing fan.
With this in mind we thought we'd provide a brief video comparing the two. We wanted to show the two games on the same track, using the same, or similiar, car using the same views.
Road America is a storied track that opened in 1955 in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. It currently hosts the IndyCar Series, WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, and the Xfinity Series. It has hosted other racing series such as American Le Mans Racing, Grand Am Rolex Sports Car Series and CART Racing. It is also a track that is in both Forza Motorsports 6 and Project CARS: GOTY Edition.
Mercedes AMG is a car line that is fast, expensive, and one hell of ride. Both games also have a version of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG so this was our car of choice in this brief comparison.
As a heads up, we used the Game Capture feature of the Xbox One, so please be understanding of this fact. So, without further ado, here is the comparison of the two games:
