  1. Is the game a worthy purchase for GT veterans and racing newcomers alike? The answer is a 400-horsepower yes.
  2. The second lap was even better than the first. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  3. The sheer breadth of gameplay and the incomparable selection of cars offered sets "Gran Turismo 2" far above the competition.
  4. Even though the graphics are almost identical to the last version, everything else has been upgraded enough to make this sequel better than last year and, by default, the best racing game of all time.
  5. 100
    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.
  6. The best racing game you'll find on the PS one, hands down. [Mar 2002, p.34]
  7. Basically the developers took everything that was right about GT and multiplied it by a factor of ten in GT2.
  8. 98
    The genius is hidden away under a wall of rather harsh looking pixels until you realize that every one of the 500-plus replicated vehicles races so exactly like the real thing it's shocking.
  9. The game is light-years ahead of its time - even with the handful of annoying 'glitches' that occasionally rear their ugly head within the game.
  10. Without it your PlayStation is naked.
  11. If cars are your religion, "Gran Turismo 2" is your Holy Grail.
  12. Yet another intense racing experience that any fan of tire-melting action will worship.
  13. It is as addicting as ever and has taken all of the great aspects of the original and expanded on them. You will be playing this game for days, weeks, and months before you will even come close to finishing.
  14. Frankly, GT2 is so good it hurts.
  15. The enormous number of tracks and cars on top of the realistic Gran Turismo gameplay gives this game some of the best replay value there is.
  16. 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.
  17. At three in the morning, I realized that having me write about GT2 is pretty much like giving Stone Temple Pilots' frontman, Scott Weiland, a gig as a heroin reviewer.
  18. 90
    Sound in GT2 is again top notch. The cars sound real, down to minute changes in tone after you make high-powered modifications.
