    It's unquestionably the best F1 console game on the PlayStation 2. In fact, I'll go one step further: It's the best F1 console game ever.
  2. The one thing that really stands out about Grand Prix Challenge though is the quality of the graphics and the amazing frame-rate that makes every course look sublime.

    An accurate F1 simulation while remaining accessible to the more laid-back player. However, it's still more a simulation than an arcadelike racing game.
  4. It can be set up to play like an off-the-cuff, arcade-style racing game or can be adjusted by varying degrees to simulate the actual physics and handling of an unforgiving F1 racing vehicle.

    One of those game where you can actually enjoy driving. [May 2003, p.83]
  6. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    The way it controls, which, in my opinion is like crap. [May 2003, p.93]
  7. The experience was so bland, uninspired and lacking that high feeling of drama and action that surround F1.

    Great game, and at the $30 price a ten, especially compared to other f1 games that sell for $50 (one of which I trade in to buy GPC). When Great game, and at the $30 price a ten, especially compared to other f1 games that sell for $50 (one of which I trade in to buy GPC). When details like a sedan parked next to fence (at San Marino) are rended even though it is only seen in a race replay, you know Infogames did their homework. Oh, and it is tons of fun too. Expand

    Don't believe Gamestyle's review for a second. GPC is far superior to any F1 game in the most important area: the gameplay. The Don't believe Gamestyle's review for a second. GPC is far superior to any F1 game in the most important area: the gameplay. The graphics are also outstanding and the framerate is pure 60fps. It's a great game all around. Expand
