Summary: 0verall very dissapointing when you consider games like gran turismo, this feels very old fashioned, its unsophisticated in comparison and doesnt really do much for me. The graphics and sound are pretty average and the playability is very average as well. With so many great games out there I would not rush out to buy this offering unless I had all the other driving games and was a real collector of driving games.
Ok this game is so bad that i got a virus after playing it
15 June 2003
Summary: I hate this game, absolutely hate it. I hate it so bad that whenever I turned it off I threw up. I had the flu for a week. Don't get me wrong, I've tried to like this game so much that I played for a day. I have never hated a game, or even dislike one, but this one I hate a lot.
Summary: This game was made to subject the player to a high performance, adrenaline pumping series of races by allowing them to take part against similarly matched sports cars. The graphics are high resolution in this game but then you should have come to expect that from the PS2. Square have opted for the Ridge Racer style music to add the "adrenaline" edge to the courses but personally I don’t think it was done as well as Ridge.
Pros: Nice ingame graphics, A good attempt at attacking the big boys
Cons: Doesn't quite make the grade, Sound is a let down
Summary: DRIVING EMOTION TYPE S has had a good ones happening in Japan above all because it had the Ferrari between blots some to them available. Unfortunately but the truth of this game is very various in as far as my opinion is mediocre and in giocabile. The problems begin from the control system, in fact to the steered minim the machine will answer unavoidablly in absurd way making you to go to blink.
Summary: With the disappointment that Gran Turismo 2000 (which has now been labeled Gran Turismo 3) won't make Christmas, PS2 fans were left with a void to fill, and Square's Driving Emotion was the closest game that would fit in that gap. But is it worthy to fill such a gap? Well no, quite frankly it stinks and here's my reasons why.
Summary: From the moment you put this game into your Playstation 2 the only emotion it seems to deliver is one of sheer depression and anger after all it cost you £40.The Playstation 2 logo comes and goes and then no flashy intro just a bland front end screen which wouldnt look out of place on a PSone game.Press Start and you get the obligatory race modes,Arcade,Time Trial etc,nothing different there but its in the execution of these modes that you really start to feel that...
Summary: Driving Emotion Type-S comes from Squaresoft, and their stamp of quality is all over it. The car mechanics all run smoothly and the cars handle like a dream. You can choose to race round authentic tracks, including real life venues Tsukuba and the world famous Suzuka circuit in Japan. Car nuts will find themselves right at home with Driving Emotion Type-S. It features a hefty list of cars to race in, including Ferraris, Porsches, Toyotas, Mazdas and many many more.
Summary: General/Summary: Square have never been renowned for racers, and this creation 'Driving Emotion Type S' is guaranteed to keep Square at the bottom of the pack, for now at least. It's obvious Square have no descent experience in this field of gaming, because mixing the best bits of 'Need For Speed', 'Gran Turismo', 'Sega GT' and 'TOCA' is clearly not the way to go, well not in this fashion.
Summary: First of all the controls. Crap, thats all I have to say. The cars handle like a horse with no legs pulling a cart filled with the remains of a white dwarf star. The games graphics just don't live up to the standard expected on the PS2. The cars look like wooden blocks cut with a blunt axe. There's not much choice of cars either, plus the tracks are pathetic. The gameplay is appauling and overall the game is a heap of sh**e. DANGER: Keep away.
Pros: Give me a few years to think of some please.
Cons: Basically, bringing out the game is the disadvantage.
Driving Emotion Type-S (PS2): Driving Emotion Type-Anger and Sadness
2 August 2000
Summary: Just imagine it: going smugly down to your local import shop, opening the door, grabbing a wonderful blue and silver PS2 box from the shelf and placing it on the counter. The man behind the counter takes your £4** or so cash and you smile with delight as you pick up your new PS2. Then the mistake. You pick Driving Emotion Type-S from the shelf and quickly give him the 55 quid as you leave the store.
Pros: What advantages? I suppose you got a PS2, so...
Cons: Below standard graphics, rubbish gameplay, no extra features, etc...
