Swedish developer Simbin brings officially licensed World Touring Car Championship (WTTC) action to PCs in Race 07. Gearheads can get behind the wheel of more than 300 cars spread across nine race classes. Players can then take their highly tuned touring vehicles, like the BMW E30 M3, the Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo, and the Formula 3000, around 32 replications of real-world tracks. Gamers can also use the helmet-cam, developed specifically for the new inclusion of Formula cars, to take in the downtown views of several city courses.
Race 07 lets players participate in the official 2006 and 2007 WTTC seasons, and drivers can choose to race in the real-life two-race-format where the top eight finishers change order for the second race. Realism takes to the fore as a damage model includes detachable wheels, nose sections, engine covers, and spoilers, while bugs, dirt, and weather effects contribute to the race atmosphere. Steam enabled online multiplayer support provides races, leagues, championships, and leader boards, and computer AI will populate races if players can't put together a full field of friends. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
