Total Immersion Racing is a driving game that combines the highest quality driving technology, real-world racecars and tracks with immersive gameplay.

What really separates this game from the pack is the other drivers that are passed on the track to victory. The player is pitted against a posse of other drivers, all with their own unique personalities, driving styles and responses.

Total Immersion Racing features a Revolutionary AI: computer-controlled drivers all have their own personalities, memories, behaviours and grudges to bear. Be careful when you block a rival

I have found this to be true for two titles from Feral software so far. This and Enemy Engaged. The games recognize every device I have connected. My CH Products F-16 Combat Stick USB, my CH Products Pro Throttle USB and my CH Products Pro Pedals. But they only let me use one of the devices for control during game play. For an aircraft as complicated to fly as a Helicopter this is utterly rediculous. I've played much lower end sims that allow the use of multiple devices. It seems necessary for any flight sim. Why they would only allow the use of one controller is beyond me. You would want to have your flight Stick or steering wheel if you have one as the analog steering control and your pedals as the analog gas and brake. Lets face it, for a driving game to really be any good it has to give you comfortable and famialr analog control of Steering, Gas and Brake. But NO. You must pick one controller to use. Not all three. What kind of Crap is that. I hope they wake up and smell the coffee and fix this with an update. It could be cool but with the control options being what they are it's total crap.

Sorry you have been having issues with controllers, but trying to play a Racing game using three different USB devices is not a standard way of playing is not supported in almost any racing game apart from serious emulators or open source projects.

All mainstream steering wheels send all of the signals down 1 USB cable and hence are all fully supported by TIR.

In the case of Enemy Engaged although the original game allows only one USB device, we do have a beta patch that allows you to hook up multiple devices this can be downloaded by contacting support for details.

I don't think so. Wasn't that good on an emac 1.25 ghz, playable but I reckon a G5 would be a more realistic setup.

Didn't seem to be any crash damage, which considering how often you end up in the barriers due to unresponsive controls is dissapointing.

The final nail in the coffin- the game crashed my Mac, couldn't even get back to OS X Panther, had to turn off the mac completely (never had to do this before).

The game offered so much potential, dissapointing.

Totally Uninteresting Racing is more like it. All you can do is boringly circle the track along with the "AI" cars, which are apparently intelligent enough out of the box to ride tracks *far* better than me (hint: if you bother to boast of an AI, make the thing learn to be just *slightly* better than the human). No crash damage that I could notice. Controls feel disconnected, as noted by others. It also screws up window positions in other apps, which is a Trash-able offense.

I played this demo, look amazing with the vertex shaders turned on! The cars are really realistic and with my force feedback steering wheel I was in bliss!

Purchased the full game the next day!

I tried this game, and have now deleted it. Compared to other racing games I've used, the controls are just way too sluggish, making it very irritating to play.

Be careful when you block a rival on track, or destroy the chances of a driver in a lower class, he will remember you in later races. Remember that old rivalries never die, they just get more intense. You will need help in your championship run so choose your enemies with care.
