For fans of high-octane races and ridiculous titles, Superstars V8 Racing can be bought from EverythingPlay for only £24.99! Perfect summer filler before the likes of Forza 3 and Gran Turismo 5 skid onto store shelves later this year!
Gunned through a price-comparison, EverythingPlay's deal for Superstars V8 Racing edged past its rivals as the cheapest deal on offer! However, V8 Racing failed to emulate its Superstars title, averaging a measly 64/100 on MetaCritic, with critics citing a lack of variety in race-modes as the game's biggest shortcoming, although they did praise its realism and and attention to detail.
Superstars V8 Racing is the licensed game for the Italian Championship Racing League, with recognisable brands such as Audi, BMW and Jaguar on show. Players compete in the League, which has been painstakingly realised, with cars, tracks and venues rich in detail and authenticity. The 'V8' in the title refers to the engines each car houses, with the handling and driving mechanics of the many brand's licensed vehicles designed to feel unique and different.
Superstars V8 Racing is an authentic driving experience, although it lacks the overall polish and quality of the Forza and Gran Turismo games, which it so obviously strives to be. The lack of game-modes means, despite the broad roster of cars and tracks, gameplay often becomes stale, boring and predictable. However, if you are hungry for a decent racing experience, and can't stomach the six month wait for the likes of Forza and Gran Turismo, don't hesitate in picking up this deal for EverythingPlay!
