    oh boy talk about a heated topic, interesting comments for both sides, everyone is correct, PCARS 2 does have accurate sounding cars, but on the other hand--sound in other areas is lacking, but PCARS 2 for me is by far a 50/50 sounding game.

    the issue with PCARS 2 for me is that the game has flat engine sounds and muted sounds for exhaust like exhaust crackling and popping until that 1 backfire but even that sounds generic.

    On my PC, the sounds are excellent actually. Dedicated sound card (Creative Sound blaster ZX) hooked up to the Logitech Z5500 which has a 10" sub. You have to ramp up the bass volume on the Z5500. Then, everything becomes goosebumpin'.

    Nothing heated to see. I love Pcars I only find the sound a bit lesser than in other sims. No more no less. :-)

    I play in helmet cam so it automatically mutes it a little but id agree with the above statement about the sounds. I wouldn't say they are bad but not as good as they could have been. Definitely not R3E quality but not like you are playing an old GT game either. I guess its like ffb and a very personal thing if it bothers you more or not. No right or wrong just different opinions.

    This debate is very subjective and one that will go on I suspect. Years ago I had a job selling top of the range hifi and the exchanges here remind of those days. Some would find a particular speaker or amp to shrill and yet others would find it dull with preferences shaped by many personal factors in the subjective realm. Having access to a range of great Sims can tempt us all to be keyboard experts on what sounds correct when we are really indicating our preferences.

    Personally I can't relate to the notion that pcars is ' muffled' but can accept that others prefer a more shrill or bright presentation of engine sounds. These differences of opinion probably result from the subjective nature of sound perception and people's differing expectations.

    To the sound is pretty accurate, there is a video from Extra Milles in which he tries to record the sound of his Mercedes C63 to create a mod for Assetto Corsa. And you can notice that in this case is not so perfect.

    At least all cars I have tried the sound is very good to me, here is the mighty Porsche 911 GT3.

    Maybe what we don´t have in PC2 is this sound of gears in slow rotation and the bubble body kit!
