  • Summary: It's time to take your glorious Sega GT 2002 race car out of hiding and show her off to the world. Pit your superior racer against the revved up Xbox Live community and kiss bumpers with up to 12 drivers from around the globe while talking in real-time. In this car-lovers paradise there are over 165 top-of-the-line race cars from 25 different manufacturers just waiting to be customized and put to the ultimate test of will and speed. When you're not tearing around the pristine tracks at breakneck speeds, be sure to stop by the new Gathering mode to play minigames which will earn you cash and unlock new cars for racing in Sega GT 2002 mode.

  1. Developer WOW takes advantage of Xbox Live's potential to deliver truly compelling multiplayer races. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.98]
  2. Even with its online flaws Sega GT Online is a steal at $20, especially if the 2002 game isn’t already part of your game library... This is easily the deepest racer available on the Xbox. It’s a shame that it’s not the best.

    If you’ve already built up a garage full of cars in Sega GT 2002, you can import your saved game and be online instantly.
  4. I have major issues with the steering being too sensitive, but most everything seems to chug along quite nicely. Outfitting cars and stocking up the garage is always fun, but prepared to invest some time to do so.
  5. While the $20 price tag might seem like a great reason to pick up Sega GT Online, it’s not.
  6. Ultimately, owners of Sega GT should ask themselves whether a handful of new elements and the online component are worth the investment (even at the reduced price). [Feb 2004, p.107]
  7. The biggest disappointment is how the online games end. As soon as the first player crosses the finish line the game ends. It does not matter if you have one or a dozen laps to go, the game is over.

    This is THE BEST racing sim for XBOX. The simulation - the feel of the cars as you race them is nearly identical to Gran Turismo 3 - the single greatest racing sim ever created. Project Gotham 2 by contrast is awful with its "honking" noise every time you hit something, and the over all feel is way off from what should be expected from a racing sim. The only real shortcoming is the inability to have more than one single game save. Collapse

    It's a good game, that would have been better if the other racers on xbox didn't exist. it can't really comete with project gotham 2, or rallisport challenge. sega gt is a bit of a rip off of gran turismo, but that's not really a bad thing. Expand
