Excerpt: When Sony announced a racing game featuring 166 cars, people thought that it couldn't be done. Well Sony and Polyphonal shocked the world of Playstation, by releasing a game called Gran Turismo, and which is now known as the "king of racers".
Excerpt: Oh My God!!! CGI on Wheels!!! The cars in Gran Turismo are deliciously beautiful. Screen shots of this game look like they should be FMV. In fact, they look TOO good. THESE cars don’t look THIS good in real life. The cars reflect the “perfect” automobile that the car companies would like everyone to envision when their name brands are spoken of.
Excerpt: There are several kinds of racing games. There are those set in the future, such as Wipeout or F-Zero, or ones like Diddy Kong Racing, which have a kiddie appeal. For sheer realism and involving gameplay, nothing approaches that of Gran Turismo, from Sony for the PlayStation.
