  • 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

    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. 80
    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 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

    The original double pack with Jet Set Radio Future was the first Xbox game I ever owned that I got for Christmas in 2004. It was good.

    This was a really good Gran Turismo clone and had many flaws but could not out-rival Gran Turismo 3. I thought it was much better than the original Sega GT on the Dreamcast in terms of controls, modes, race courses and car models.

    The graphics looked really impressive for the car models and the race courses. The soundtrack is good but you can use a custom soundtrack which is also good. The sound in terms of the car engine is reused for every car which is really irritating. The controls are solid. The mode selection is diverse such as Replay Mode, Chronicle Mode, Time Attack, Vs Battle, Arcade Mode and Sega Gt 2002 Mode.

    The Championship Mode is exactly like GT Mode in Gran Turismo but much shorter. There is the Official Races, Event Races, Car Shop, Garage, Parts, Used Parts and Save/Load.

    There is 125 cars in the game and 12 race courses. This is really disappointing compared to Gran Turismo 2 and 3. It feels like you are playing the original Gran Turismo on the Xbox.

    The Official Races lasts 5 rounds and has 18 races. The Ai and difficulty is impressive up until round 4 and the last license test where it becomes really difficult and then unfair when you have to do it again a second time to beat Championship mode.

    I did like the various events for Event Races like Genre 70s-90s Races, Group B Rally Race, Drag Racing, Supercar Race, One Make Race and a Snow Mountain Race. Trying to unlock the Special Cars was a nightmare and I hated the stipulation for it.

    The Garage was cool as you could look at the trophies you won and pictures you took of your car in a race. You could do test runs, view your car list, sell your car and change car parts.

    The Parts shop was good and most of the parts weren't that expensive and you had to unlock more by playing through Official Races. It also helps if your car needs to be repaired or if parts need to be replaced.

    The Shop was also great but most of the cars were really expensive and unobtainable unless you played Event Races and Official Race and got 1st place in the races.

    The main flaws are reused engine sounds, poor number of cars and race courses, difficulty and AI spikes near the end of the first playthrough and then going into the second official race playthrough and in different events in event mode.

    Overall the game still somewhat holds up.

D'une façon générale ça n'a pas à rougir au moins d'un point de vue technique avec les Gran Turismo contemporains mais il est regrettable de constater que les bruits de moteur sont bien plus horribles, une torture pour les oreilles.

    La conduite demeure très moyenne (un point commun avec les GT certes) et beaucoup trop arcade ; c'était prévisible de la part d'un titre estampillé Sega même s'il s'agit d'une "simulation" à côté d'un Ridge Racer (tout est relatif en effet). Tout cela est donc assez bâclé, il faut le reconnaître.
