Superstars V8 Racing is developed by BlackBean games, and published by Codemasters,who have built much of their solid reputation on racing games.

BlackBean is the company behind the successful SBK08 and MotoGP motorcycle racing games. So, their racing game pedigree is good. Superstars V8 is based on the V8 Supercars race championship based around V8-engined touring cars from companies such as BMW, Audi and Jaguar.

The game is clearly based on the SBK09 engine, but with four wheeled vehicles replacing two-wheeled, and anyone who enjoyed that game is sure to enjoy this one too. Superstars V8 Racing follows the same approach as SBK09 - racers take part in a series of races across a series of race tracks all around the world. The tracks are accurately modelled on the real-world versions.

The cars are accurately modelled too, and each one handles differently, matching the real-life handling characteristics of that particular make and model. Players can tune and configure their cars to match their personal driving preferences in order to get the best performance out of the powerful engines.

Options give the game a selection of driving difficulties making it possible for new players to pick up and play with arcade style gameplay and handling. More advanced players can take part in a full driving championship season, competing in a series of races, with more simulation-style driving and handling.
