  1. An outstanding update of the Dreamcast version–-does truly replicate this most unique of races, while not forcing players to endure a full day of gaming.
  2. Don’t overlook this one – it’s quite quietly one of the most agreeable racers we’ve seen for some time.
  3. This doesn’t mean for one second though, if you own "GT3," you shouldn’t own Le Mans. The two games are totally different, and Le Mans is still definitely a must have for racing fans.
  4. A great characteristic of this game is that you typically race against fifteen other cars (sixteen cars total) and in the Le Mans race the total is twenty-four cars! This is in contrast to the typical six driver racing games, which are quite boring after experiencing this.
  5. The handling is drastically better than it was on the PSone, but horrendous anti-aliasing issues, draw-in, and loading times are still present.
  6. This Le Mans is more like coming down from a caffeine binge than the exciting beginning, especially when there are fresher drugs, err… games, like "GT3" just waiting to be played.

    If "Gran Turismo 3 A-spec" was like opening Christmas presents as a kid, then Le Mans 24 Hours is a lot like getting mugged.

    This game is awesome it is the only game that lets you race for a full 24 hours and it has way more cool prototype cars than gt3.itsThis game is awesome it is the only game that lets you race for a full 24 hours and it has way more cool prototype cars than gt3.its simulation isnt as good as gt3 but the sense of speed is amazing and the way the game shows the difference between a porshe 911 gt3 and a nissan r390 is also very good.and it has a well modelled pit crew that replaces fuel and changes the tires.all up it is a great game, it doesnt have the best graphics but it is a very life like le mans simulator 10/10.

    This is nowhere near as fun as the Dreamcast version. Its missing some detail and it just feels like a different game. The car handling hasThis is nowhere near as fun as the Dreamcast version. Its missing some detail and it just feels like a different game. The car handling has its own style and of course some tracks are fun. But for the most part this is not exciting to play. I don't know why, but the Dreamcast Le Mans was better in every department. If you play GT3 or Toca Race Driver, totally skip this one. Expand
