Is it good?
Virtual Regatta has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated regatta game. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid sports game with built-in inshore features. Well, as a top-performing game with an overall rating of 4.01 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.
This is by far the best racing games (sailing) on the App Store. It hits on all of the key aspects of racing; fighting for a good start, wind shifts, wind shadow, vmg, etc. The only areas that could use some improvement are the rules and how a penalties are resolved. The basic rules are all there, port/starboard, windward/leeward. I think the rule accuracy at mark roundings could be improved. If I remember correctly a boat has no rights if they are head to wind until they have established at least a close hauled course. Also, (someone already mentioned this in a review but I agree) penalties are payed off immediately with a timed speed reduction. It works pretty well, but it kind of incentivizes sailors to force a penalty rather than sail their proper course. In real racing penalties can be fulfilled by doing circles at anytime between when they occur and when the offender crosses the finish line. I think this should be added into the game, at least for the non foiling boats.
My only other comment is that the game is on the verge of “pay to win”. There are certain advantages that you can buy with game tokens. The tokens can be purchased or won and it’s not to hard to win them. But, let’s be honest real life racing is also very much a pay to win sport so think what you want...
At the end of the day, if you have been racing for years, just learning to race or just learning to sail; this is a great game for you.
This is an excellent game for experienced and new sailing fans. A game that really captures the important aspects of racing.
I only wish that there were more monohull regattas taking place. The Nacra, or any catamaran races, are not worth taking part in. They move too fast and the game or the user will not be able to keep up. This affects the rules as well and can be very frustrating.
A feature to report players would be helpful. Some people use the rules to take stationary boats out right before the start, ruining their race. This is not accurate or fair to players.
The rules are pretty well done, and the wind dynamics make the game very interesting. The addition of some new boats like FJs could really encourage younger college sailors to use this game.
