  1. Any suggestions on similar racing MMOs? I played until ‘maggie’, but my vista machine wouldn’t load it. I finally got a new ‘puter (retired, low funds, yada, yada…) and went looking. How sad, it was a fun game, with enuf players to get decent races going.

  2. Sad news: as of May 2014, support to Heat Online has officially been discontinued. It is not possible to play it anymore, unless until someone picks it up again from the ashes (as it already happened when it was called Project Torque).

  3. every time I go to their website it’ll say get stated and then it takes me to this ask.com thing pissin me off!!! >:(

  4. I loved Project Torque so much… They cuted up for Europe I think.. and they released Level R… completely awesome.. I will try this one to see if keeps rocking my soul.. This is not a copy of Drift city… at the beggining there wasn’t that “live looby” (I don’t know it’s name)..
    Level R had new Game Modes.. Team Games etc.. I missed little details of Project Torque but it was a way too better… And that onboard camera with the moving hands… was and is the most awesome camera ever..
    My opinion is that this is the best mmo Racing game ever made and it still improving..

  5. Used to play this game when it was Project Torque. Played for a very long time due to a bigger player-base. Awesome graphics, controls, content, quests, challenges. I would love to see this game grow again, i would play it day and night… As of now, nobody seem to care about racing games and it sucks to see this game go in nowhere.

  6. This is one of my favourite racing games out there. Granted, I haven’t played that many, [bout 10 or so,] but this one is the best. 😀 I like the cars, the customization, the game modes, the people, it’s really a great game. To all racers out there you should deff check this out.

  7. Pros: Sleek and polished graphics, extremely smooth gameplay at max detail in 1080p with even entry-level graphics cards. Fully customizable gamepad support. Decent SFX quality and BGM. Localization by region prevents latency issues that aren’t your ISP’s fault. Well balanced car selection, stats, and performance. Upgrades are purchased directly, like any proper car racing game (glares are NFS:W) with tons of variety and tuning options. Lots of ‘clever joke’ powerups that make your car look ridiculous if used. Lots of mode variety including CTF, Sumo, Drift, NASCAR-style racing, dirt racing, and much more.

    Cons: Not a strong sense of speed early in the game, and rightfully so since the controls are borderline simulation-style. Small playerbase which makes getting into races slow and thus feels like a grind even with boosts. All licensed IRL cars are only available with real money. Those cheesy ‘clever joke’ powerups I mentioned, are small bits of obvious pay2win, but at least they are cheap. Not a lot of dev support lately, seems to be fading away again (formerly Project Torque under Aeria Games).

    Overall: It’s sad to see simulation-style racing games fade away like this. Especially ones with so much spice and variety in their gameplay experience as this. In what racing game do you get to race on the rooftops of skyscrapers under construction? This game! It’s challenging and exciting when you prove your driving skills in twitch-response racing and ultimately a constant thrill. Shattered by the decline in playerbase, and lack of dev support. If it’s popularity grew again though, we would likely start seeing more dev support and hopefully not watch this wonderful little title fade away again.

    • better then krazy car but not many players any more because the devs dont kno how to run a game and no new content has come to the game thats worth playing it again.. but is good if ur new or like ctf ,teamctf ,sumo mode (u knock cars of a cliff) drift mode and others. but once you hit lvl 60 or mabey less it gets boring because of cheaters and low plaer base = less races

  8. i used to play this when it was project torque and i had every car nice game hope this is as good as the aeria games version was,and yes people do still say don’t judge a book by it’s cover,you just have to have had parents that said it to their children.

    • This is a wonderful post and may be one to be flloowed up to see what happensA colleague sent this link the other day and I will be eagerly waiting your next write. Keep on on the first-class work.

    • this is nothing like Drift City…obviously you haven’t played it. Play something b4 you make comment. Hence, the old saying…”Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
      Also, what you see in the video was one of the first build soon after its release in August of 2010. What you see in the video is not the actual gameplay. All you see is the 3D lobby. This video does not show the ACTUAL gameplay. Please do not be deceived by this video. Go to http://heatonline.com to see the official trailer for this game. Again…what you see here is NOT gameplay, only the 3D social lobby.

    • Drift City’s graphics are waaay more low , even if the gameplay is pretty cool , I have played it , twice , but after a while its getting pretty booring , beside this game that has great graphics but you dont feel that feeling you should feel when u driving like driftings , THEY SUCK , and kinda hard to customize your car , I mean I been playing this game under the name of LevelR and the money received per race were kinda few , didn’t like that , people playing for weeks still had 1st car , this was kinda the thing i stoped played
      but as I sayd i been playing this game published by someone else , maybe Innologin made it easier
