  • Summary: This is the only game that lets you race virtually every Corvette made in street and track settings. Over 80 incredibly rendered production Corvette models from '53 to '03---plus awesome show cars. Upgrade your 'Vette's engine and suspension---feel the effect of real car physics. Race on various tracks and an obstacle filled Route 66 from Chicago to LA. The choice is yours...6 characters, 15 official production colors, multiple environments. Variable camera angles---and era-specific HUDs---enhance your race experience. Heritage mode allows you to "test drive" any stock production 'Vette. [TDK Mediactive] Expand

    An enjoyable game with lots to do and unlock that is sure to keep you occupied until "Gran Turismo 4" arrives.
  2. If you’re looking for a new racing game on your PS2 and only have $10, give Corvette a try, it won’t disappoint you. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with it, and you will surely get what you pay for.
  3. It’s slightly above average in almost every aspect and matches that with a low low price.
  4. While Corvette may not be particularly innovative, the gameplay isn’t bad, though it lacks bells and whistles. Corvette fans are going to get a nice toy for their ten bucks.

    While you can drive almost every Corvette made, the game doesn't feel realistic enough to give the impression that you're behind the wheel of one.
  6. 55
    Would you bother with a substandard title when you can purchase something like "Gran Turismo" or "Hot Pursuit 2" for a scant few dollars more? No, you wouldn't bother, which is good because you shouldn't bother.

    It's hard to imagine that Corvette, though it's priced to compete with a case of Bud, will be able to satisfy. There are much more competitive racers that also feature the fabled 'vette, along with decent physics, AI, and play modes.

    This game does a lot of justice to the cars and performance differences between different model years are readily apparent. Game play is very rewarding as you increase your driving skill. Expand

    As an young owner of a 89 corvette. i can not wait until this comes out. Corvettes are my life, and i would die for my car. I saw one site that says. wouldnt you like to get your child a corvette. and i thought, i already have one and every child should. I went from playing with hot wheel corvettes to driving a real one, all by the age of 16. Priceless. Expand

    Who doesn't like Corvettes. Fast, fun and beautiful to see! Unfortunately, this game has none of these traits. Game play average at best. Car physics are average to poor. I can count the polygons in the terrain... and road. With all this said, it is only $9.99. Bottom line, if you like Corvettes enough to compensate for average code, then this game is worth it...

    Best described as NFS:Porsche Unleased for the PS2, but with Corvettes (and no damage). Contrary to reviews, I found the cars DO handle differently from each other. It's graphics are not the best, but the tough competition is what keeps me playing. Sometimes gameplay is more important than looks. It does not look bad. Corvettes do NOT handle like the exotic cars in most games that turn on a dime and should not here either. They can be heavy in comparison as Gran Turismo depicted so well. (Hey, if you want super realism-try to drive those boats in Ford Racing 2 like the Mach 1!) Totally worth the $8.99 I spent. It would be worth $19.99. It's a regular fun driving game with every model year represented. Expand

    I have been waiting for months for this game to come out. I am a huge fan of both Corvettes an PS2 racing games. That being said, I have to say that this game is a dissappointment. The graphics are absolutely beautiful, and the presentation is also very nice! But the gameplay is only so so. Very slidey and difficult to control, sort od like Ridge Racer V. Try mapping the handbrake to R2 and then use it! That helps a lot! Then it will play a little bit more like Test Drive ( without all the traffic! ) Anyway for 9.99 it is still a good buy!!! Expand

    Being the first user to review is tough, what do I say? I played this game for 5 minutes and gave up. That's it, I can't imagine I wasted my time playing this garbage.

    When I reviewed this (Don't bother looking for it) on YouTube, you could hear in my voice that I was angry at a game so unfair. The driving mechanisms are slow and unresponsive, the graphics are weird, and the points are pointless.

    You just go into any game mode, it doesn't really matter which because there is no difference in the end, and choose a corvette (depending on the game mode, there may be only one type). The way the menus are set up are so complex and confusing. You'll just end up doing something you didn't expect.

    There is no story, just races accessible from the menu, all you do is race, THAT'S IT. The races are really easy if you're fast enough and don't mess up. Otherwise, the other racers are much faster, you'll never catch up.

    Turning is a really burden, it both slows you down tremendously and risks you crashing into something. To all of you out there you might be thinking that I'm exaggerating, well crashing into things is really bad because of this little flaw: Reverse is Triangle, TRIANGLE. Since when does a racing game use TRIANGLE as Reverse? It's ALWAYS SQUARE, but no, they MESSED IT UP!!!

    Anyway, if you want to play a good racing game get something like Need for Speed or Midnight CLub, don't waist $5 on Corvette.
