  1. Right now drift racing has the potential to be the next big thing, so you may as well try something that emphasizes the extreme difficulty it takes to gracefully glide around curves.
  2. D1 Grand Prix’s style-over-speed gameplay is perfect not for those who enjoy watching the sport, but for those who actually do it understand its persistent challenge.
  3. The game offers a good amount of content and the overall appearance isn’t half bad, but the controls (or lack thereof) are the major downfall of D1.
  4. Drift racing is supposed to be fast-paced and exciting and it's neither of those things in D1 Grand Prix, a lifeless and frustrating PS2 racing game.
  5. 37
    One of the most frustrating games we've played in quite some time. The driving and scoring models are simply unforgiving at best and broken at worst. Unless you want numerous reasons to throw your controller through your television, avoid this at all costs.
  6. D1 as a budget title is practically a joke, but as a premium title, this game is too ridiculous for words.
  7. Realistic drift physics apparently don't equal a good time, especially when added to a frustrating - and mandatory - tutorial mode. [Sept 2006, p.76]
