    Overall SuperStars V8 Racing is pleasantly surprising. After a good few hours with the game it will still be pulling you back in for another go, teasing you to master that tricky hairpin, or to find the perfect car set up. Whilst many of you will be looking to Sony and a GT5 release date, I urge you to divert your eyes a little and give this a try.
  2. Although it doesn't have any intention to reinvent racing games, mastering all the aspects of the competitions takes some time and dedication, weeks of enjoyment steering this virtual racing cars. Recommended for beginners and for racing games fans waiting for a more purist game.

    Nothing about Superstars V8 Racing is glaringly bad, aside from the tiresome menus that need to read your save whenever you make a selection.

    Superstars V8 Racing is a decent downloadable racer for the PSN, one that stays true to its somewhat obscure license. Still, shoddy handling, generic car graphics and feel, and single player-centricity make its $20 price point seem higher than it should.

    The Sequel to Superstars V8 Racing isn't a big improvement in the franchise, but can be fun for the fans. The racing is a bit too simple, but is enjoyable. The annoying part is the audio and the many moments of saving and also the loading times.

    Superstars V8 Racing is a downloadable title, and therefore not as fleshed out as a retail release. The content is fun and very playable, but may not be worth the price of admission with much bigger racing titles already on the market.
  7. V8 Superstars Racing is a game with several flaws in every aspect. Visually it's an average game, without many interesting features. Its gameplay is strange, illogical when it comes to driving and with a physics engine that is not fair with players. It's a game to forget.

    It's a great stab at getting back to when TOCA was great, ok it's a series even I (racing fan) had not heard of, but it works.... It's a great stab at getting back to when TOCA was great, ok it's a series even I (racing fan) had not heard of, but it works.... Admittedly the 4x4 audis are easier to handle, but the M3's and 550's are also good, if a little tail happy. All in all, it's a good racer, more on the realistic side, and not easy - but fun. Expand

    Its a bad racing game overall. The game play is quite poor and boring in my opinion. I recommend getting need for speed or burnout instead.Its a bad racing game overall.
