    Is there any car simulator (real simulator) for pc?

    for example that you drive normal as in a city, and where you have to drive a manual car, and shift up or down properly, or the car will stop the engine (just as in real life).

    is there anything similar?

    thanks

    i want one too. i had previously found one that was supposed to be like that, but the graphics were horrible, and it wasnt much of a simulaton at all.

    i think right now the closest your gonna get is nfs:underground 2. that has real looking cities with real looking road signs at least

    Midtown Madness 2, but it's pretty dated now, and quite arcade-y feeling. Good fun though.

    quite arcady?! that game made crazy taxi seem like a simulation i never found a wheel to be at all pleasing with midtown madness, though the game itself is alright if you are going for the quick action

    Otherwise, if you want a great driving sim, you'll have to buy a PS2, and get a copy of Gran Turismo 4. I got a slim line PS2 recently, and the only game I own for it is GT4 - it's worth it.

    I would have figured you would have said Forza Motorsport for the x-box.

    i really dislike when you guys go in another direction... i specificlly asked for a simulation car game.... real simulation...

    MidTown Madness 1 or 2 aint a simulator...

    you cant stop your engine if you dont properly release your clutch and accelerate (as in real life), it has no directional light (as when you turn left or right).

    it aint have a fuel meter at all, you cant flat your tire, etc, etc, etc

    ive recently been playing GTR Demo, its on a track, the game has 2 cars, a ferarri 360 and a saleen (i think) you have to start your engine, you can switch the engine off, handling feels good, u can turn TCS, ABS and all the aids off, low or high. the car wont start if you crash it too much, and the best bit is the sounds, the cars sound amazing.

    you can get the demo from HERE

    IBM ThinkPad T60 l 2GHz Core2Duo l 4GB Ram l 60GB Kingston SSD l Windows 7 Ultimate X64

    Why would you wnat a real simulator, just go out and drive for yourself if you want to experience that. They don't make one cause it would be boring and no one would buy it.

    I don't think there are many in existence - certainly no mainstream ones I can think of. The ones that would exist probably only pop up in driving schools, and are likely to be tailored into a bespoke driving wheel and pedals.

    hey, we were only trying to help

    the simple fact is that there isn't a game which exactly matches your criteria
