Race Pro works best if you approach it as an uncompromising racing simulator. If you're not a big fan of driving games, and have yet to play Forza 2 or even GRID then both are better bets. They're more balanced, better looking and have stronger presentation. If you've played those games however and are looking for something more challenging and more focussed on the craft of racing, then Race Pro is certainly worth considering. Its direct approach to the task is challenging at first, but many fans of racing will find it refreshing not to be taking to the track to go fast, rather than just to earn enough virtual credits to pay for some shiny new hubcaps or the next Lamborghini.
