If you're a fan of powerfull motors, high speed cars and competition in general, then Stock Car Racing 3D Screensaver is an app that is mandatory in your PC's library.
The app's charm comes from the perfect blend of several elements, which create the ultimate racing experience.
The first thing that you will notice is the graphics, which are so neatly created you'd believe you are watching reruns of your favorite racing computer games.
The cars are well designed with detailed textured and realistic reflections that suit them perfectly, especially since the lighting is made to look like the race is taking place at dawn.
The shaky cam makes it look like everything is being filmed from the actual racetrack, from the overhead views to the close-ups on the driver.
The atmosphere is then amplified by the use of well-crafted music, which is a mix of metal and electro, that perfectly blends in with the sounds of motors near their breaking point and tires that are about to explode.
Considering the impressive graphics from both a quantitative but also qualitative point of view, the app behaved well during testing. The only minor FPS drops occurred during animated wallpaper mode, probably due to interaction with the operating system's UI.
If you want to get rid of those performance issues, you should consider adjusting or disabling several features from the settings menu, such as the resolution, aspect ratio, overall graphics quality, etc. Those of you that are using multi-monitor systems will be thrilled to know that this app supports multiple screens at a time.
The intense atmosphere created by both the visuals and the soundtrack make Stock Car Racing 3D Screensaver an easy alternative to going to a racetrack.
