  • Summary: Sega GT 2002 features more than 125 current and classic high-performance vehicles that reflect the handling and performance specifications from their real-life counterparts. Chronicle mode puts you behind the wheel of hot rods from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, while the Quick Battle mode lets you jump right into the action. The true test, however, lies in Sega GT 2002 mode, in which you must win races and collect enough cash to buy new cars and upgrade the classics. You can showcase cars in the Virtual Garage alongside trophies and other mementos. Expand

  1. A visual feast with each car modeled with incredible care. Everything from the texture work right down to the tiny car logos on the hoods is impeccable. [Oct 2002, p.110]
  2. From start to finish, it's a class act, and one that you'll obsess over for months to come. [XGamer]

    There are just enough extras and different modes to really make this game a must-have.
  4. GT 2002's only real issue is a relative lack of racetracks, but the game has enough depth to overcome that problem.
  5. The game has great features, just not enough of them to compete with the likes of Gran Turismo. Had SegaGT 2002 had more cars and a lot more tracks we might be singing a different tune.
  6. It's not quite as big as "GT3" in terms of races and events, but there's still plenty of gameplay, and expansion disks and online capability on the horizon.
  7. The AI is a pushover, the course design is rather bland, the trackside graphics are blander, and the game length is too short.

    Great, Excellent, Fabulous... Just a few choice names to describe this wonderful game. True graphically it's no better than the Sony's infamouse GT3, (which is no bad thing) however, the gameplay is where this one wins out, much, much stronger, with far better AI. I could go on, but put in basic terms, get it, enjoy it and have fun... Expand

    Yeah its not GT3 but it is still the best sim racing game on Xbox, until Forza comes out this Fall which will hopefully be able to challenge the GT series. There are minor things I dislike in this game but most are things in GT3 I wish Sega GT 2002 had. Expand

    Gran Turismo is 1000 times better.
