When his father perishes in an octane-fuelled blaze of fire on the asphalt that he loved, Ryan's frustrated ambition galvanizes into a unrelenting determination to triumph over all opposition and become first a touring car champion, then maybe even World Champion. Petrolheads and mass market gamers alike slam the pedal to the metal to guide the actions of our hero through the hairpins and chicanes of a career in global racing. Features 42 licensed touring & race cars including Holden Commodore, Ford Falcon, Mercedes CLK, Alfa Romeo GTV and Viper GTS; 38 international circuits recreated under licence including Bathurst, Hockenheim and Silverstone; and 13 global Championships including official series: DTM from Germany, V8 Supercars from Australia and the Britsh Touring Car Championship.

  1. One of those games that will be remembered years down the road for anyone who plays this fine title.
  2. Pin-sharp sim that's both challenging and forgiving, with a story that's not just bolted on... A true delicacy in a time of relative famine for racing sim fans, but should feature on any gamer's menu. [PC Gamer UK]
  3. Stuff the storyline and just play the game.
  4. The main coup of the PC version over the PS2, however, is that it that the on-track visuals have been given a massive overhaul.

    It's the kind of racing game you might fire up just to find out what happens next, rather than to go once more around the track. [July 2003, p.81]
  6. All of the abovementioned discrepancies are outshined by the excellent in-game physics, solid damage model, excellent particle effects, good sounds, and beautifully designed racing tracks.

    Lame story, lame racing, lame A.I. - lame game. [July 2003, p.86]

    I was hoping for the fun of TOCA but with a storyline. The storyline is there, but the fun racing certainly is not.
