  1. The list of omissions is epic: decent A.I., car damage, real-life car parts, an in-dash view, analog gas and break buttons - and, well, you get the point. [Oct/Nov 2003, p.84]
  2. The worst issue, however, is the handling - akin to pushing a shopping trolley with one wheel locked, the cars in Group S are just about as twitchy as they can be.
  3. There are glimpses of fun within each race. But the lack of race types, tracks, shoddy AI, and frame rate issues slow the fun down to a putter.
  4. 25
    Anytime there are more than a couple cars onscreen, the game chugs and stutters like crazy. That's unforgivable on hardware this powerful. [Sept 2003, p.60]

    This game brings together Gran Turismo with Sega Gt all in one package to the xbox game system.

    After playing this game for a while, I can give the unrealistic/Sloppy handling some slack. After you get use to it, it's not so bad for an arcade racer. The GFX are good (tho I don't see why there are slowdowns as a Game like Gotham Racing has much more detail and never slows down, I guess it's in the coding) I was just getting into the swing of having to work a bit for the $$$ untill I opened A-Class, now it's Much too easy to Rack up the Bucks!! (All I had to do to be able to afford the High Dollar cars was run A-Class Shibuya A II with the Integra Type-R(01) B-class, win easy and grab 5 million a race!) But other than that...it's a decent Ride =) Full Review »
