  1. The quintessential sim racing experience available on the PS2. Time will tell if this is the release that pushes the series over the top into mainstream acclaim.
  2. When it comes to realism, TOCA is now hot on Gran Turismo's heels. As for variety, accessibility and heart, it's already way ahead. [Feb 2006, p.84]
  3. Perhaps the most pleasing aspect of this new game is that instead of some series being good and others (such as rallying) being very poor, the general quality level of each type of racing is very high.

    If there's one complaint it's the precision necessary to succeed in completing some of the championships.
  5. Improvements in the level of detail on offer from the damage modelling to the multi-layered audio, continue to present the game with ever greater realism, and no-one could ever accuse the developers of a lack of variety in the vehicles.
  6. Have your driving your way, while still getting enough substance and structure that doesn't feel like a mere test drive.
  7. It's strictly for armchair racers that crave variety over substance. [Mar 2006, p.90]

    One of the most realistic racing games to come out for the PS2. It has so many race types that sometimes you don't know what to choose. The graphics and physics are very good for a six year old game. Expand
