Bargain Bucket: Murdered: Soul Suspect – Re-Review

Project CARS: Will This put Forza on the Ropes?

Being a long time Forza veteran, I expected to pick up Project CARS today and jump in to another relatively easy going racing game. I could not have been more wrong. After the game installed (about thirty minutes when installing from the disc) I booted up the first option available: a quick play that would drop me into any race of ...
