Project CARS (Wii U)

Game Profile

Project CARS is the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game on the planet.

Create a driver, pick from a variety of motorsports, and shift into high gear to chase a number of Historic Goals and enter the Hall Of Fame. Then test your skills online either in competitive fully-loaded race weekends, leaderboard-based time challenges, or continually-updated community events.

Featuring world-class graphics and handling, a ground-breaking dynamic time of day & weather system, and deep tuning & pit stop functionality, Project CARS leaves the competition behind in the dust.

Wow this game looks amazing! It reminds me of a NASCAR game I played on the GameCube. Can't wait!

Hmm. Not sure what to think, but I would sure love a high-calibur Wii U exclusive racing game like Gran Turismo or Forza... something to show off the power of the system.

Remember the old game "Destruction Derby". I would love a racing game that has the closed circuits and fender bending action of DD. Are there any game developers out there who could take on the challenge and incorporate those elements on today's hardware? They surely would have a hit on their hands.

This caught my eye a while back, looks great, and I hope that cars are fully customizable. This could be a great start to an awesome franchise for the Nintendo console.

Are they ever going to show Wii U footage? All they talk about is the PS4, they're making a mistake and ignoring the many Wii U owners who are interested. With the lack of love directed toward the Wii U I'm already changing my focus to other games which are sure things like Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1&2 and of course SSB.
