The newest installment from the team behind the legendary PC Sim racing series GTR, Race Pro, is looking every bit as good as the previous games. While it may not have the GTR name, the game remains true to its predecessors with more customization than you can shake a stick (gear shift) at. The GT and Forza series' have some serious competition.
"Atari is revving it up with the announcement of the revolutionary racing video game RACE Pro. The ultra realistic simulation racing game is scheduled to speed into stores in November 2008 for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Developed by renowned AAA game developer SimBin, a leading creator of PC racing simulators, RACE Pro brings SimBin’s formidable skill and know-how to the console for the very first time."
Here are a few of the game's features:
