    Abundant with options, cars, and a ton of racing modes, GT is easily the most realistic game of its type on the Dreamcast.
  2. Attempts to capture some of "Gran Turismo's" formula for the Dreamcast, but it ultimately falls short due to poor control and an unintuitive interface.
  3. 80
    If you want a simple pick-up-and-play racer keep looking. If you know a bit about cars and want a game to spend some serious time on, then look no further than Sega GT.
  4. Addictive. I've had this game in my possession for a little over a week now, and have logged over 30+ hours into it.
  5. Definitely not the groundbreaker that Gran Turismo was, it is indeed a solid racing title with plenty of replay value to keep the engine warm. Dreamcast race junkies, this one's for you.
  6. One of the greatest racing games to come out in a long time, stacking up and in some areas surpassing even "Gran Turismo."
  7. Sega GT is heavy on the racing and tuning options and will make any avid racing fan smile with glee.
  8. Sega GT seems to frustrate more than entertain after some time, like GT2 did before it for gamers that played the original.
  9. It's not a perfect simulation of driving in the same way Sega's own "Ferrari F355 Challenge" is, but it's close -- and with a lot more cars and races to choose from.
  10. Although Sega GT does indeed look awesome -- better than any PlayStation game could possibly look -- it's nowhere near pushing the envelope of the hardware capabilities the way "Gran Turismo" does on the PSX.
  11. Sega GT is a nearly perfect racing simulation that offers hundreds of cars, dozens of options and weeks of deep gameplay.
  12. It may be a "Gran Turismo" clone, but it's still as stunning and immersive a driving experience as you're ever going to find on the Dreamcast
  13. What sets the game apart from its rival is the obvious better graphics.
  14. The player interface is not as streamlined as it should be, and the graphics are not as good as they could have been.
  15. 70
    Dig below the surface however and you'll find the kind of depth that'll take weeks or even months to fully explore. A shameless clone of Sony's "Gran Turismo," and a a pretty good one too.
  16. "Gran Turismo" is still king of the realistic console driving genre, but certain aspects of Sega GT (like the analog control for breaking/accelerating and the 'Carrozzeria' option) surpass it and point brightly toward the genre's future.
  17. "Sega GT is hot sh*t." Get this game, play this game. Live this game. Fuzzbuster not included.
  18. Two areas where Sega's game SLAUGHTERS Sony's ("Gran Turismo 2") -- depth and graphics.
  19. The graphics and depth are sure to please even the most critical racing fan.
  20. While Sega GT's daunting learning curve and super-realistic handling may not be everyone's cup of tea, the game managed to grow on me after extended playing.
  21. So even though the controls are shoddy and the physics aren't realistic, those things don't detract from the overall enjoyment of the game.
  22. Obtaining the various drivers licenses alone requires near perfect driving skills, and you'll need to be able to drive these courses with your eyes closed if you hope to win the races.
  23. One of the better driving/sims on the market, and could even give the heralded "GT2000" a run for it's money.
  24. 84
    I definitely recommend renting Sega GT if you're not into constructing cars, making money, and just want to race against a Mazda RX-7 or a Dodge Viper.
  25. It's an incredibly deep, engaging game that will make arcade-lovers and simmers alike join hands and sing.

    Everything about this game was great for its time, except the most important thing. Graphics were, of course, great considering the Dreamcast was the only 128-bit machine on the market. Creating your own cars was way cool, or could have been. Very deep and long-lasting, just like Gran Turismo games. The way that Sega botched the whole thing with awful controls is almost criminal. Darn near heartbreaking, and something that could have very easily been avoided had anyone on the dev team actually played either of Polyphony's GT titles (that they were outright copying, though you can't knock them for that) out at the time. So, oddly enough, Gran Turismo 2 via Bleem for DC is the best racer on DC. Full Review »
