The balance between realism and arcade driving is what always gives PGR the edge over its four-wheeled competitors, and number four nails the formula perfectly. If Bizarre hadn’t quite managed this, the great new weather effects feature would have lost much of its impact, but thankfully the driving mechanics and the on-track conditions compliment each other well. It takes genuine skill to control your Ferrari when it starts to hydroplane on a giant puddle, or when a sharp corner suddenly emerges from the fog and you’re forced to yank the handbrake and slide so close to the barrier you can count the rain drops on its super-shiny surface. Genuinely thrilling stuff.
