  • Summary: It's a driving simulation so advanced and authentic it'll drive you mad. Comprehensive vehicle dynamics based on collaboration with industry engineers. Authentically licensed cars from manufacturers like Lotus, Aston-Martin, BMW, Alfa Romeo and more... One of the most advanced 3D driving engines ever developed. Is your mind ready for this much reality? Collapse

  1. The biggest difference in this and other racers is the adaptive AI. The other cars do not run the same line all the time. They will cut corners, and will try to run you off the road if need be.

    Like the Soup Nazi from "Seinfeld" - it demands perfection from itself, so how can it expect any less from it's customers? Tough, but rewardingly so.
  3. Past the point of its strange gameplay philosophy, Acclaim's new racer holds some solid gameplay and excellent graphics.
  4. Vanishing Point features excellent graphics, a good control scheme, and loads of unlockable goodies. However, VP has two attributes that will likely drive some people mad: you must unlock almost everything, and the learning curve is incredibly steep.
  5. Boasting some of the most impressive physics and visuals ever to find their way into a current-generation console racer, VP is another of those damnable "must-have" titles for anyone who appreciates a finely tuned driving experience mated to state-of-the-art graphics.
  6. Vanishing Point remains a blazing fast, satisfying and addictive racing game. Unfortunately, before you can really enjoy it, you'll need to find a way to work around the trash AI.
  7. Imagine taking a swig from a can of beer, only to find that, not only is it flat and warm, but some git's been using it as an ashtray. Prepare to experience Vanishing Point.
