  1. If you were trying to decide on a racer before "GT4," I would say that this is the title for you if you are looking for a solid single-player game. If you're in the market for a good multiplayer racer, I would suggest "Need For Speed Underground."
  2. The intimacy, the almost Zen-like relationship with the track is not here. Even so, I would be a fool to call this game anything other than great. [Jan 2004, p.60]
  3. t looks fantastic! But it plays just ok.

    In the end though you have to consider that when it's good its very very good and when its bad... its just a bit rough, never terrible.
  5. A solid, but very vanilla racer.
  6. 60
    If you're looking for the ultimate racing experience, you'll need to look elsewhere.
  7. There's abundant animated cleavage for the truly desperate. However, the heart of the game - the actual driving - is outclassed in every aspect. Don't bother. [PSM2]

    I love this game! If you find GT3 too be too difficult then try this one. I call it "Gran Turismo for Dummies" Drive all of the great cars on all of the great tracks without having to be a technical expert.....have fun!!! Expand

    Grand Turismo is Eye catching but is boring. R Racing the Game may not be as Grand as Grand turismo but they did a good Simulation racer game. Think of it this way Good recover from Ridge Racer V "that was horrible". Expand

    The best part of this game is the girl on the cover. The driving sucks. The track sucks. And yes, I know this is PS2, but the graphics kind of sucked, too. A score of 1, because I couldn't play it more than 30 minutes until it became painful. Expand
