Summary: I found the controls to be a bit finnicky, and the game itself to be rather demanding with a standard ps3 6axis controller. it might be more fun/manageable with a wheel/simulator however with the 6-axis i found it pretty tedious. i've played a wide variety of racing, FPS, strategy, etc games, and generally find the good in most games. This one however I gave up after the first couple hours, and every time I think about going back to it, think I should sell it instead.
Summary: I bought this game based on recommendations from my friends who play it online. I have never been able to play it online due to an issue with the game's servers. An email to the developer brought a response that "we don't know where the problem is, please let us know if you ever succeed in getting online so we can narrow it down", rumor has it that their servers were hacked. This game is useless to me!
Summary: You get what you pay for and that is all this game is worth. This is a arcade game and not a simulator. After the Gran Turismo series it would be difficult for any game to meet my expectations. I'm going to give this one away and wait for the next Gran Turismo 5.
Summary: You've already read other people's reviews and they are generally spot-on. However, they don't make it obvious that you can't have a friend over and play one-on-one. WTF? This is a COLOSSAL downgrade in my opinion. I can only play with people online or find a friend and drag him over and set him up on LAN play with his dedicated PS3/TV. Great game, but you've been warned...
