    Superstars V8 Racing (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

    Superstars V8 Racing is based on the license of the car racing Italian Championship that Black Bean Games has signed off with Superstars International Development. Powered by some of the most important car manufacturers in the whole world, such as BMW, Audi and Jaguar, and sporting top class production cars it delivers a breathtaking driving experience.

    Having succeeded in obtaining a place on the gaming market with two wheels, the inseparable duo Black Blean / Milestone tackles cars.While it was logical to compare the trend of motorcycle games between those four wheels game , it will be this time most relevant to the parallel between V8 Superstars SBK Racing 09.The publishers are the same and the developer also .In other words, Milestone has been working to focus on four wheels that he could do in two, ie a title that is not totally arcade or simulation completely. The effort is not superhuman, the foundations were already there, we can welcome the attempt to put forward a subject ignored by the rest of the board as too low profile.It is difficult in the preview version (Superstars V8 Racing (Preview)) to really see the case on the body even after a crash at 200 km / h

    SBK draws its wealth on the part of different configurations that it proposes a rather flexible and tolerant, and the others a little more rigid, but far more exhilarating. A hybrid position that makes the title of the game attract a few all types of players and especially those who TCS (traction control), ABS (assisted braking) and ESC (stability control) mean something.. Differences with the superbike game appear in the physics engine, slightly modified to have a racing sensation accentuated. Black Bean has also benefited from the experience and the opinion of several championship teams in order to improve the overall record for most closely matches the perception that the real perpetrators of these car races. The various possibilities of setting (ratios of gearbox, power, compression and rebound suspensions, tire types ...) can win the precious seconds that will make the difference on the final ranking. The game promises to provide immersive sensations.

    Superstars V8 Racing offers the utmost realistic impression of the Championship. From car design to technical engine features, from the setting of the races to the turns of the tracks, everything has been designed in great detail.It is faced with a clone of SBK 09, already visually speaking, since the engine is the same, but also at the level of sensations. In fact, do not look for realism in confusing Superstars V8 Racing, you get a set of easy courses to take in hand and eventually little demanding.

    We advise all players to move in order not to undermine the experience of gaming because even in "simulation", the game remains quite general public as the only real subtlety is to control the braking online.

    In Superstars V8 Racing Every single car behaves in a complete different way accordingly to its real technical features and the settings tuned by each team competing for the title in order to get the best performance out of the powerful engine. Game play mode variety is enriched by each own cars peculiarity and it can be appreciated for the pick up play game mechanics, thought for the casual gamers, as well as for the top notch quality of the most experienced ones.

    The multiplayer fans are not completely forgotten. Game allows 12 users to compete on the small ten calendar that tracks the legendary Mugello circuits or Valencia. Overall, we must admit that we leave disappointed with the options available to us, especially since the challenges are large . However, the game of racing has other qualities, such as fairly faithfully reproduce the sounds of these engines of 400 horsepower cars, often pulls back. Also the camera mode that allows full pause, turn your car around to admire it from every angle. Classic but still effective. Finally, we will complete a disappointment at the lack of an inside view.

    Superstars V8 Racing is not technically impressive but the game engine is efficient. Everything probably lack a bit of fluidity and damage modeling would have been improved further.The lack of an inside view is a beautiful mess because the engines are really cared for and contribute to the immersion.

    In its style, ie not too arcade, or simulation too, the game Milestone is quite nice and very accessible, while being reasonably faithful to the behavior of this type of car. We regret that the deactivation of aid did not greatly impact on general assistance benefits .


    Technically Superstars Racing V8 engine takes advantage of graphical SBK 09. After two hours of play in the editor, it must be admitted that such a level of quality animations and lighting effects (reflections of water on the runway, flare and dirt on the body, relief traces of tires off-road) in a preview version is a good omen. All views are very playable. As against, it will hope that the management of the damage will be slightly less in the final version.

    Superstars V8 Racing is a racing game somewhat surprising but relatively effective. He paid tribute to a well license unknown to the general public and will suit the fans of the genre. However, we can blame him to overlook the multiplayer locally or to forget an inside view but in the end, the gameplay both enjoyable and accessible enough to be attractive can be attempted.
