has everything a racing game needs.....

  • Summary: This is the ultimate racing game. Hundreds of tracks and cars you can race all day. It's not too hard, but certain parts can be hard. If you like racing games, you have to pick this up. The controls are easy, the graphics are good, and the good soundtrack is an added plus. Basically, pick this up if you happen to enjoy racing games, you won't be dissapointed. Or buy the new one, but if you're money-strapped, this one's only $20.

Awesome Realistic Driving Game

  • Summary: It is true that if this is your first GT game to play, that you will find it very hard to learn. You'll think that the physics are off and that the liscense tests are impossible. But remember that this game has truely realistic driving physics. Yes it really is easy to sping in a 400 hp car, and almost assuredly so in a 1000hp car. But thats why you can tune the car.

Awesome Driving Simulator

Joshua Cooper, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a driving game fanatic, and Gran Turismo has always reproduced the true-to-life physics of driving cars better than anyone else. Hence, it's not a 'pickup and race' game. The learning curve is pretty hard. The first few times I played Gran Turismo on PS1 I didn't like it, it was too hard to get to know, so my friends were beating me all the time. After I got the hang of it, I found myself wasting hours with it.

  • Summary: Do not have any big surprise from the previous GT2 & GT1. This game mainly gives you the same fun as the previous ones but with better graphic & pictures.

Great game, sometimes overly difficult

M. Nyiri, Amazon
24 December 2003
  • Summary: Gran Turismo 3 will certainly not disappoint, especially at the new low price of $20. The graphics are amazing, every bit of power available in the PS2 is being used to run this game. It took about 3-4 years to develop GT3, and the quality from that shows. The music is by actual licensed bands and artists, along with random Japanese techno songs. The music fits the game well, making good "driving music". Gameplay is very smooth and realistic.

Vrrrrrm!

  • Summary: Gran Turismo 3 picks up right where GT2, its predecessor, left off. With improved car selection, more courses, and crisper graphics on the Play Station 2, it instantly became my favorite racing game. There is nothing better than being able to pick your vehicle of choice from any major automobile company. With choices from Hondas to BMWs your options are limitless. The fun doesn't stop here though.

PS2 Graphics with PS1 tracks and cars

CASHPOOR, Amazon
20 November 2001
  • Summary: Although the graphics are definitely up from yesteryears PS1. There is an obvious resemblance in track design that has only changed by adding the increased graphics, a cheering crowd and the different road handling of the cars. The tracks are a re-run of GT2. I do understand that the tracks are recreated from actual tracks located around the world but as simple of a statement as that may be I still would of liked to have seen a little variety or a surprise of some sort...

Worth buying

Jim Warczak, Amazon
11 November 2001
  • Summary: The game has a couple of flaws that keep it from being a five star game. One is the multiplayer aspect. It only has capacity for two people, which makes the race boring because there are only two cars. Also, those with a multitab should be able to have a four-person race. The other flaw is that simulation mode takes too long, even if you are an expert. I am only at 75% and I have spent days playing.

Solid, but not the 2nd coming...

Fish Myer, Amazon
27 July 2001
  • Summary: GT3 is a very, very good game, tied for the best racing game I've ever played (the other is NFS: Porsche Unleashed on the PC). It's amazingly deep and will keep you addicted for weeks and weeks. The graphics are the best EVER on a home video game system, and the whole affair is very smooth. Even the load times are quick! Now for the cons (which is why everyone reads these, isn't it?): 1)Can get repetitive. The basic premise is: race, earn $, upgrade, race, repeat.
