    The precursor to GTR²... A great game which shortcomings were answered by GTR². Also GTR² includes all the content of this one (maybe except the Oval tracks, but there are certainly some Mods for that if you really want to turn your wheel in one side only). Get GTR² instead.
    And play with a wheel.

    Everyone who loves simulation games,especially dtm racing simulation,will love this game... i don't think we had such a great simulation and realistic feeling with any other previous produced games... If there weren't any problems with the online mode,i should have give it a 10... I LOVE IT !

    A stunning acheivement. Delivers nearly everything us hardcore simmers have been asking for since GPL. There will always be more to ask for, but GTR is the new benchmark in racing sims, against which all future sims will be compared.

    I've played many driving simulators over the years. GTR FIA is by far the best driving sim out. Anyone that rates this below a 9 is an idiot.

    If you're a motorsport fan then this game is heaven. If you're a kiddie street racer (or FPS loving magazine reviewer) then you won't be all that impressed. Easily the best motorsport simulation ever.

    Not a game, a simulation. Should be reviewed as such! Living in Canada, had to order it overseas.

    This game uses StarForce and you can tell from the official and non-official forums this game is full of bugs. No patch has been released to fix some of the issues that have been their since the German release only the 24hrs cars which are great and new StarForce drivers that make it run much slower and take a longer time to check.

    Amazing game, you wont regret this purchase!!! Best GT racing game since EAs Sports Car GT several years ago. Graphics, sounds, feel, they are all there.

    Don't trust the "professional" review sites and mags for a moment, their reviewers normally test sims as well as arcade games even though they are very different things. This is the easily the best racing game since "Grand Prix Legends (1998)".

    I've been in love with this game since it was release early in germany. So much so, I ordered the German version instead of waiting. If you want a dumbed down racing game you can play with your mates while drunk in front of the TV, look elsewhere. This requires concentration, a good steering wheel, and some degree of real life racing talent to get the best out of.

    Wow. This game strikes the perfect balance between realism and fun. The detail these guys put into the cars and tracks is astounding, and the sound is out of this world. I'm addicted.

  1. This is an incredible achievement, the closest a simulator has come to entertainment; the nearest videogaming has come to the real experience of driving. Forget play. Just drive. [March 2005, p.84]
  2. A slightly confused combination of intimidating depth and unnerving shallowness: on the one hand, a monstrous physics engine that'll stir a petrol-head's soul, on the other some patchy graphics and a slightly home-made techno soundtrack that calls up wholly unflattering comparisons to EA. However, it does push the realism harder than the more entertaining "Live For Speed." [March 2005, p.102]
  3. A stunning simulator that true racing enthusiasts will be able to marvel at for months, but one that will be an incredibly daunting prospect for those of us just merely looking for racing entertainment. It truly goes off the scale in terms of difficulty if you've any intention whatsoever of playing it remotely seriously, and I've never come across anything quite this brutal.
