Dirt to Daytona was the first game to really embrace the idea of moving up from the bottom tiers of the sport, the dirt tracks, to the highest level. The next generation of sim racing software is used by professional drivers and casual gamers alike. Join the tens-of-thousands already racing in our community. But right now it's September 27, 2001.
The sim is pretty realistic. This one was always one of my personal favorites as a kid. As with any serious racing sim, licensing is king. Most of the tracks were fantasy tracks, ranging from open highways to a race around a large fountain, and usually they featured shortcuts. Some of you might think Paramount and Viacom absurd for releasing a game based on a 20-year-old movie in 2010. The game also included a fictional track, the Coca-Cola Superspeedway, which was basically Daytona and Talladega combined on steroids.
Cars were able to reach speeds of 250—at least—and the accidents that users could create soon popped up on YouTube. The rest are either out right now or coming soon, but since they've had less time to stack up against the classics, they come first with one notable exception. The sim also includes a total of 21 licensed tracks, including the Daytona International Speedway, and all of it is rendered in 32bit depth and resolutions as high as 1600×1200 pixels! Great online play, great physics, and great graphics. The game has experienced some delays in release that have prevented gamers from getting their hands on it, but the concept of getting to race as or against such legends of the film as Cole Trickle, Russ Wheeler, and Rowdy Burns still has some pull for a few of us. One of the most anticipated racing sims of 2001.
You might just be right. To get started, all you need is a computer, controller and a broadband internet connection. All of the painstaking details add up to a robust lineup of cars and tracks that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing — giving sim racers unmatched immersion when they take the green flag in our online races. Developed from the beginning as a centralized racing and competition service, iRacing organizes, hosts and officiates races on virtual tracks all around the world. Hopefully a patch will come out soon.
A patch hasn't come out since April. I played almost all of them at least once, even the Papyrus computer games and Hasbro's limited output. In the fast-paced world of eSports, iRacing is a one-stop shop for online racing. But right now it's September 27, 2001. . The addition of a story mode and production car races—through one of which the user earns a Modified ride, by beating Ryan Newman—were pretty cool as well. You can now adjust track bar stiffness, shock compression and rebound, ride height, spring rates, and even caster en route to tuning the perfect racing machine.
There are only two tracks—Daytona and Indianapolis and about 11 cars, a far cry from what most other games offer. And while both competitors lost out in those respective instances, their offerings would have been groundbreaking in any other situation. Great online play, great physics, and great graphics. It's Christmas, meaning millions of people are giving each other gifts ranging from the useless to the wonderful. We utilize the latest technologies to recreate our ever-expanding lineup of famed race cars and tracks.
At first, I was so taken in by the new physics, sound, and overall look that some of those faults didn't bother me. . . . .
