  1. It’s not perfect, but it’s a lot better and a lot less glitchy than a ton of other racers out there that I have played. After you get used to the controls it’s a lot of fun.
  2. A bare-bones rendition of "Gran Turismo 3" or "Sega GT 2002," albeit without the preponderance of cars and special effects.

    A standard racer... None of the gimmicks it tries really work. You never get a sense of a dramatic underlying storyline.
  4. What few vehicles/locations the game has have been rendered and programmed with enough care to make them come across as genuine labors of love.
  5. TIR ought to be politely referred to as SIR... Sorta Immersion Racing. Everything works, but it doesn't offer anything that hasn't been done better before.

    Hard-core GT fans who love the intricate, inchworm tactics that can make racing a science will find some budget fun here, but others run a serious risk of falling asleep at the wheel.

    All the cars suffer from terrible handling physics, which are only made worse by the appallingly sensitive setup on the analog controls. [Mar 2003, p.114]
