    The challenge level is great, the dicing through traffic is adrenalin inducing (I had to force myself to release my death grip on the controller a few times), and the focus required to play is high. It just feels real.
  2. I have to say that the biggest thing that I found really good about IndyCar was the fact that the physics weren’t perfect, but pretty darned close.
  3. Graphics aside, this game is very realistic and sim fans will be rewarded with hours and hours of oval-racing Nirvana.
  4. What ultimately makes IndyCar Series good instead of great is it’s inability to really target an audience.
  5. IndyCar Series does a remarkable job of simulating just about every aspect of the IndyCar season and the world famous Indianapolis 500 right up to the point where you get behind the wheel.
  6. From gameplay modes to bonus stuff and graphics, “IndyCar Series” is to the PS2 what “Flag 2 Flag” was to Dreamcast: a forgettable racing appetizer.

    The physics appear sound and there are plenty of ways to tweak your vehicle, but the game has no spark. Easy mode is too dull and not at all true to the sport, and normal and pro modes are too demanding.
