Excerpt: Introduction Those of us interested in retro gaming have to blink a bit when we realise that the original Sony PlayStation (PS1), which at the time of its launch felt like something coming to us from the distant future, is now well into the second half of its second decade of life.
Pros: Huge range of cars, great longevity, tuning options add depth, graphics good for such an old game
Cons: Only the odd real track (eg Laguna Seca), handling pretty arcadey even in GT mode, no Ferraris !
Excerpt: In this review I will go over both GT2 Cds SIMULATION DISC The GT simulation disc is great. You start of with $10000 and buy a car. Then you race it and earn money. You can unlock new races with bigger Prize money by earning licenses. This feature is good, but some license tests are really hard.
Pros: Great gameplay, countless car configurations
Excerpt: Gran Tursismo 2. The follow up to the nigh-on perfect Gran Turismo. Gran Turismo, the real reason I bought a Playstation in the first place. That's the hype this game has to live up to in my eyes, no mean feat let me assure you.
Pros: Crisp graphics, brilliant sound track and engine notes, playability, learning curve is set right, vast array of cars
Excerpt: Gran Turismo 2 has got to be the best Playstation game ever. It provides great graphics, extensive gameplay, and a wide array of cars. The graphics are extremely crisp and fast, which makes it the most realistic looking game I've ever seen.
Pros: Great Graphics, Great Realism, Great Price, Good Selection of vehicles
Excerpt: As graphics and sound qualities across the various platforms improve, becoming more and more realistic, so the structure of games must also provides realistic settings and scenarios. It is no longer sufficient for racing games to offer a handful of cars and tracks and a vague tournament structure.
Pros: A deep, involving game . An excellent concept executed very well . Easily the best game on the Playstation / PSOne .
Cons: The Playstation enforces unfortunate shortcomings upon it .
Excerpt: This game is billed as ‘The REAL Driving Simulator’, and that’s a statement that’s not too far off the mark! With hundreds of cars to choose from, and a selection of both road and rally tracks, this game should last you a good long time.
Excerpt: This is an excellent game all round. The graphics are brilliant, realistic and there isn't a lot of pop up. The handling of the cars is great, they are so much fun to drive. The best thing is power sliding and overtaking at the corners.
Excerpt: Gran turismo 2 is by far the best racing game so far with its extremely large asortment of cars and a large amount of tracks the only thing wrong with it is that on most of the copies the timer doesnt work so you cant enjoy your self trying to beat your best times with the licenses thank god you...
Excerpt: if you know and love GT1, like me, this is less than the second coming. this is not an improvement, its an expansion. but this expansion has gutted the game of its passion for the craft of road racing in favor of a glossier, dumbed-down arcade feel.
