Drago Lobdell  "At First I Couldn't Get The Car Around The Track Without Pinballing Off Every Corner. It Was Very Frustrating At First. Then I Started Playing Around With The Settings Which I Found To Help Greatly. In The Button Confiq. Menu There Is A Settings Button, In There Is Options To Adjust Steering,acceleration, And Braking. If You Adjust The Steering Bar Down And Turn The Feedback To About Zero The Cars Will Greatly Handle Alot Better. Once I Did This The Game Became Very Easy To Beat. I Have Completed The Game Several Times Since Doing This.

Once You Finish The Game You Get A Nissan Cube. (a Little Sh**-box Only Sold In Japan.) The Other However Is A Toyota 020 Ts. This Car Is A Beast. There Will Also Be A Version Of Each Track Called One-make. Where You Can Race The Toyota Against 4 Other Drivers In The Same Car.

Overall I Don't Think This Game Is For Everyone, But If You Love To Race Like I Do You Should Check It Out. If Mario Cart Is Your Kind Of Racing Game, Then Leave This One On The Shelf."

John Wilson  "This Game Was Pretty Damn Good (i Don't Care What Others Thing Of This Game, But I Felt It Was Real And Exciting! The Car Selection Is Great (not Very Many Gt Cars Though.

I Don't Think This Game Is As Good As Gran Turismo 2, But The Simulation Mode Controls Are Very Real. Its Almost Like Driving A Real Car. So Far I Have Almost Unlocked Every Car (i Put The Lap Settings On 1 Lap Instead Of 2, 3, 4, Etc). This Game Is Kind Of Easy (to Me) And You Can Gear Your Cars To Go Faster And Accelerate Quicker.

I Would Recomend You Rent This Game Before Buying Unless You Are Rich Or Absolutely Love Racing Games."

Leslie Crawford  "This Is One Of The Worst Games I Have Ever Played And It Has To Be The Worst Offering For The Ps2 Yet. Perhaps I've Come To Expect More, Given The "rage Racer", "gran Turismo" And "need For Speed" Series Of Games, But I Found The Joy In Playing "driving Emotion" To Be Non-existent. Do Not Purchase This Game Before You Have Had An Opportunity To Test Run It As A Rental. Some Of You May Even Find That You Like This Game, But I've Got To Believe That You Could Do Much Better With The Other Driving Game Offerings That Are Available For The Ps1 And Ps2. For The Record, I Found The Controls (steering, Braking Accelerating, Etc.) To Be Just Plain Awful, And The Soundtrack Reminded Me Of Something From The 1980's Genre Of Video Games. Not Exciting At All."
