Do you love Formula 1 racing? Then Grand Prix Racing Online is THE game for you!

Grand Prix Racing Online, usually shortened to "GPRO", is a
massively-multiplayer online Grand Prix management simulator.
It was created by a group of dedicated players of F1 manager web games. The game is loosely based on past gaming experiences, incorporating the concepts, knowledge and experience of previous (classic) F1 manager games.

GPRO can be played without cost for the individual user, since it is free to sign up and get a team. There is also a possibility to pay a supporter fee for extra features. These features do not give an advantage in gameplay, but are merely some extras, such as more car liveries or race commentary.

The Gameplay:
Each new user will start in one of the Rookie groups, the lowest level in the game. He will receive $30,000,000, a standard (and pretty bad) driver, and a level 1 car if he joins before the first race of the season, otherwise his money will be reduced depending on the number of races left in the season.

The object of the game is to win races and achieve promotion to a higher level. This can be achieved with a good driver or a good car, but usually a well-balanced combination is required. Race strategy and car setups are also an important part of the game.

The points system is the official Formula 1 point scoring system where managers in positions 1-8 get 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 points respectively.

Before each race, a manager can update his car and do testing, if he likes. To participate in a race, he must take part in the qualifying session. Before qualifying, he can set up his car during an 8-lap practice session. After the qualifying, he can confirm the strategy for the race. Different tyre compounds and fuel loads play a big part in race tactics.

After each race, the participating managers are paid prize money according to their finishing and qualifying position. Sponsor money will also be paid, if a manager has any sponsorship deals confirmed. Driver and staff salaries are paid after each race, but the biggest expense comes from replacing worn car parts with new ones.

Managing your economy is one of the most challenging parts of GPRO and new managers can find it very hard to stay on positive balance at first.

Try to be a successful team manager like Dennis, Todt or Briatore. Manage your grand prix team to success by building good cars, developing good race strategies, hiring the right drivers and staff and planning for the future. But all must be done within the limits of your financial and worktime budget and with the fierce competition breathing down your neck!






Top 5: Star Wars Combine

Introduction:

The Star Wars Combine is a game set in the Star Wars Universe. The game has been online since 1998 and although it is technically a browser game, it sees itself rather as an MMORPG. It is programmed and run entirely by volunteers, so playing is free. There are no monthly charges and no premium features that are restricted to players who register a paid account.

The game is player driven, all roles - from the emperor or commander of the Rebel Alliance to the fighter pilots - are open for player characters. Combat is not implemented yet, but the player driven economy offers many options to mine, trade or build cities, facilities and stations.

Any new player can create their individual character selecting from various skills and more than 50 different races from Star Wars (Wookies, Twi'leks etc). They can then join an existing group - from the infamous Empire to less famous smaller production, trading or even pirate groups - and later found their own company.

There are more than 5,000 planets that can be explored and colonised. Player characters can own their own ships, vehicles, buildings, cities or even companies. Also player groups ("factions") can be owners of anything, setting the Star Wars Combine apart from alliances and guilds in many other similar games.

The Star Wars Combine offers many roles to choose from and thus allows the player to not only live their own dream of being whatever they want in the Star Wars universe, but also to adapt the game to their favoured style of play, playing the game as more of an adventure, a strategy game, a business sim, or just enjoying the lively community of like minded gamers and Star Wars fans.

Despite the current lack of combat the Star Wars Combine offers a complexity and variety rather unusual for free browser games. If you like Star Wars, you should really give it a go.

Top 1: Hattrick

Hattrick (commonly abbreviated to HT) is an online, browser-based, football management game (MMOG) developed in Sweden. Currently the game contains 124 different countries, each with its own league pyramid, and 47 different language versions (since October 3, 2008). The basic idea of Hattrick is to manage a football team wisely, whether it be in buying and selling players, setting the team's lineup, or expanding the arena to the perfect size. Every user in Hattrick has a team of his/her own. The user has wide control over their team, and gameplay is mainly limited by economic and tactical restrictions. Many different types of teams exist within Hattrick; the team's type is generally shaped by the training program set up by the user, as well as the formations played.

The game is free to play, though there is an optional premium Supporter Service as well as a Mobile Service, both available by in-game purchase. As with any manager game, the player must assign positions to the players and choose among some basic tactical and strategic options. Hattrick is always under development, and the game developers often add new features to the game.
