Project Cars is a motorsports simulation game like Grand Turismo in which you race through realistic tracks and environments, but this time everything is available to race on from the start. You can pick and choose which tracks/areas to tackle as you work to race through all the available tracks/areas in the game. Other than that, the game plays fine despite not being innovative in the motorsports sim genre.
However the game has become notorious with Nintendo fans that helped crowdfund the game.
Wii U version of the game has now been officially cancelled due to Slightly Mad waiting for Nintendo's next system:
Nintendo fans have not been reimbursed because Slightly Mad says Project Cars will go to NX, but this breaks the studios original promise when people crowdfunded for a Wii U version. By delaying Cars for NX, they've pretty much made it the NX's first late port so it's not going to sell on NX now. Anyone that gave a damn would have just get it on other platforms by then.
Worse yet, there's talk for a Project Cars 2 and if it arrives on other platforms just as NX gets the 1st game or hell, it's possible a Project Cars 1+2 can happen on other platforms with Project Cars 1 only for NX... If the latter happens, it's another Mass Effect 3 Wii U situation.
When will 3rd parties learn if they want to build a Nintendo userbase, late ports, little to no DLC, and little to no good marketing (delaying Cars 1 to NX is not good marketing) is not how you do it. Maybe Slightly Mad can ultimately be forgiven if a Project Cars 2 happens, that NX gets a 1+2 bundle first with all DLC before it heads to other platforms while other platforms get PC 2 and its DLC for the time Nintendo has a limited exclusive hold on the bundle.
