    Put simply, this is the best racing game you can get for yourself right now and is the sequel every Gran Turismo fan could have wanted.
  2. The sheer breadth of gameplay and the incomparable selection of cars offered sets "Gran Turismo 2" far above the competition.
  3. Is the game a worthy purchase for GT veterans and racing newcomers alike? The answer is a 400-horsepower yes.
  4. Yet another intense racing experience that any fan of tire-melting action will worship.
  5. Frankly, GT2 is so good it hurts.
  6. The controls can seem downright impossible to master at first, but with some practice and patience you'll be ripping it up in no time.
  7. While GT2 adds more of everything -- cars, courses, even a rally mode and circuit -- it fails to improve the 2-year-old graphics engine or add any new gameplay features.

    I remember playing this as a young kid, and I loved all of it, the customization and the races were great. Its the main game that got me into cars in the future. Expand

    When I ordered this game, I was expecting it to be very fun and at most, vaguely frustrating. However, I was completely wrong. It first took me an hour to get my first licence which annoyed me. I was then only given $10,000 to spend on a car. I searched around ALL the garages (I must have been doing it for at least 45 minutes) and I couldn't find an affordable car so I had to buy a 1996 Toyota to plough me through the first few events.

    Now onto the racing. The most annoying thing about the racing is that your position can change from 1st to 6th in NO TIME AT ALL, which just frustrates me to the bone. You could be 5 seconds away from winning a race, when suddenly a mob of cars from behind you come and steal your position you worked hard for. The car can't be controlled with the analog stick (which is dumb when you consider that a PS1 controller with an analog stick had been out for 2 years when the game was released) so you have to use the d-pad which is terrible for steering because you CONSTANTLY swerve off the track.

    I swear to God, this game frustrates me so much that I one time yelled at the box and almost broke it. Sometimes it gets so bad, I feel like snapping the disc.

    Thank God I only paid £3.49 for it.
