Enthusia Professional Racing PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: If Burnout 3 is all about causing metal mayhem, then Konami’s Enthusia is definitely the polar opposite. Whereas Burnout is an arcade-style racer and is all about the vehicular violence, Enthusia is a racing simulator (much like Gran Turismo) and something of a Sunday drive in comparison.
Excerpt: Ever have the feeling that you were the right person for a job in the right place, but it simply was the wrong time? You know, like the window for your unique take on a situation has come and gone?
Summary: Enthusia tries hard to compete with Gran Turismo but it fails to match up in any part - this is not to say that it's a bad game because as racing games go this is comparable to the majority available and better than a lot of other options.
Excerpt: So Gran Turismo 4 got released and the world didn’t change. In fact, the racing genre didn’t change that much. It was just another version of good old Gran Turismo with new cars, new tracks and shinier graphics – just like some of us expected it to be.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Enthusia is a game you want to like, despite all its problems. When it's not annoying the living bejeezus out of you it's actually quite intriguing. But too many little annoyances eventually take their toll. Great opening cinematic, though.
Conclusion: It's a solid racer, sure, but in the world of killer sims and arcade racers alike, solid just isn't enough these days. Hopefully the follow-up will iron out the rough spots, because if they can, Konami has a really good racer on their hands.
