  • Summary: Enter the elite Ferrari Challenge series and race on 11 authentic courses such as Long Beach, Suzuka, and Monza. Open up the hood of your F355 and customize your assist features, then hit the tracks with some of the most realistic racing physics in a game to date. Five modes of play await you, including the all-new "Great Driver Challenge," which rewards you for how well you drive fast instead of how fast you drive. And for the Ferrari aficionado, there are plenty of rare photographs and videos to unlock. [Sega] Expand

  1. Still one of the most rewarding racers out there. Stick with it long enough and you'll be glad that you did. [Nov 2002, p.50]
  2. Captures the feeling of driving a car like no other game on the planet. The physics model is so highly developed and tuned that it actually makes this bare-bones game very engaging. [Oct 2002, p.83]
  3. The visuals are top notch – all of the effects look great, even down to the muffler stutter when throttling up.
  4. 70
    What the game lacks in the bells and whistles department, it makes up for in its insane depth.
  5. 70
    A potentially rewarding but decidedly punishing experience.
  6. I like the idea of a simulation driving game but I just don’t think it’s feasible. Confining it to one car hurts the game’s replay value.
  7. Full unadulterated boredom. [Oct 2002, p.147]

    The steering (using a wheel) has a ca. 20% deadzone. This makes any kind of fine control impossible. Also the force feedback is totally whacky implemented. The graphics are sub par. There seem to be few polys, the textures are very bland and the aliasing is the worst I've seen on a PS2. In the sound department all is not well either; the Ferrari engine sounds like a powerdrill. Why the developers chose to ruin the steering I beyond me. I wanted this game to be good. A disgrace to racing fans and to the F355. Avoid. Expand
