Dum-dum, dum-da-dum.......

It would appear the A.I. in this game follows a tradition of on rail immovable lunatics quite worse than the (already bad) ones in the likes of DriveClub and GRID.

They can speed through gravel traps like Hussain Bolt with his best slippers on, they can tip you gently and send you to meet the Mars Rover, they can turn you into a spinning top without breaking a sweat and speed off without slowing one iota.

I've just got off after trying to drive the Mk I Escort in the Historic event and I turned the game off before it put me off playing it ever again. The car has severe gearing issues, and terrible collision physics. Add in the Terminator racers and hey presto ....... rage quit.

Please fix the problems. I do love this game, but Mk I Escort + World of Tanks = a terrible racing experience.

Agreed. I had been so looking forward to racing the Escort.

Funny thing is, the last racing title I played with an Escort in the lineup was GT Legends. Lots of fun. I'm sure I read somewhere that SMS had a hand in the development of GT Legends and GTR, both excellent titles. What went wrong?

The escort is a known problem and has been fixed and will come out in a patch at some time.

Excellent news. I'm well aware of the cost of patches, so I know it'll take time to make them contain as much fixes as possible. But do you know if the A.I. will be getting some tweaks to improve the experience further?

Here's hoping.

The Mk I and Mk II were amongst the greatest racing cars of all time. Sure, most of that was with the Rally scene more than the track. But it just doesn't handle like it should. The iconic images of these cars is always one of them sideways power sliding through corners. Yet they just won't turn in Project Cars.

As stated below, they have a patch, so I'm a happy camper.

Good to hear. What about the dumb AI?
