It’s also a weird situation because, although I haven’t played it myself, Project CARS 3 doesn’t seem to be a bad game at all, it’s just that it’s so different it’s alienating fans of the first two games who were expecting more of that. This is ever so clear in the comments section of the game’s launch trailer, which you can see below.

PlayStation Classic ‘The Unfinished Swan’ from Giant Sparrow Just Got a Surprise Release on iOS as a Premium Port from Annapurna Interactive

Today has already been a good day for iOS gaming with Company of Heroes going universal in addition to some great Apple Arcade updates and the weekly new release.
