Excerpt: Gran Turismo essentially set the bar as far as racing games go - back on the PlayStation, it pioneered not only immense gameplay, but photorealistic visuals, and saw through the introduction of the analogue and rumble features in the PlayStation controller. With the massive critical acclaim of the first two games, there was a lot of hype and expectation behind Gran Turismo 3, and somehow, miraculously, it lives up to it.
Excerpt: Gran Turismo 3 is an exclusive racing title for the Playstation 2 developed by Polyphony Digital. If you are new to the series you should stop off at the arcade mode, here you will be able to get a feel for a handful of the games cars and practice on the tracks, most of which return from Gran Turismo 2, and here you will be able to race against a friend too. Most of the game is found in the single player only Gran Turismo mode which is basically a career mode.
Excerpt: Gran Turismo 3 is a great game that can be played on play station 2, but I prefer these games on play station 3. Still a good game though. This game is the first game in the series that was released on play station 2, so it was completely different than that others. The whole thing had changed. The graphic had become a lot better, and you could see more of the race.
Excerpt: this was an excelent game for it's day it still gives some games today a run for there money, game play wise compared to some of the games that are out today. The graphics aren't very good but it is a very enjoyable game i still play to practice my drifting cause the game is so realistic.
Excerpt: The original Gran Turismo, released back in 1998 on the PSOne, was a remarkable piece of software. Not only dwarfing Namco’s brilliant Ridge Racer franchise, it dragged the racing genre back to the very forefront of console gaming. With its now-trademark glossy visuals, incredible depth and design, it became an instant classic.
Excerpt: Maybe few of us gamers realised it at the time, but December 1997 was to mark a pivotal moment in the evolution of gaming as we knew it. An unknown game developer named Kazunori Yamauchi set about creating a different kind of racing game, a game where the cars looked and performed as they would in the real world and the scenery at the various race track locations looked lifelike and believable.
Excerpt: GT3 is very much the best racing game on any console to date. I did think about leaving my review at that, but there are quite a few more levels on which to appreciate this game. For a start, its undoubtedly the only time ill ever get to drive a TVR speed 12, Dodge viper, Aston Martin vanquish, and all the other cars us guys wet our pants over.
