Summary: I was very skeptical of this game when it first came out - it seemed like a watered down version of the original game that was an excuse to squeeze some more money out of us during the wait for the brilliant Gran Turismo 4. Nevertheless, I picked it up cheap one day, and found that, above all else, it's still got the fantastic gameplay and stunning graphics that one expects from the series, as well as plenty of new vehicles - chiefly newer European cars.
Another excellent game in the Gran Tursimo series!

Summary: After being absoulutely outstanded by the standard of the previous Gran Tursimo 3 aspec release I just had to get the next game in the series. I must admit I really was expecting a lot given the very high standard set by the previous game . I was expecting it to be quite as good on many fronts but as I began to play on it I noticed that the game has just got that bit better!
Summary: This is a great game, and it has one of the funniest and enjoyable races ever with these little Toyota thiongs where you have to drive round then stop in an area and wait for the car to squat then frive off again, but when racing agaisnt your mates you can drive behind tham and then butt them out of the space so they cannot complete the lap until they reverse and then you win unless they do the same to you.
Pros: newer cars and tracks with the usual unbeatable realism
Summary: In a paraphrase this game is like GT3 minus the GT Mode. Therefore technically it shouldn't be called Gran Turismo. Unfortunately the reason we have GTC is for the bridge gap between GT3 and 4. Perhaps this is in the fear that loyal fans would be lost to the other racing giants such as TOCA. I can't help feeling that Sony thought they would just make a game to pass the time until technology permitted the advancements of GT4.
Summary: Well, some might say that this is a smaller version of GT3 with concept cars, but ther eis much more to it than that. all the tracks have been remastered and small details have been added in to make this game a bit more than your average racing game. It follows the same game plan as the arcade mode on GT3 but you must complete cource liscenses to be allowed to race on the courses, the faster you go the better the car you win.
Summary: Stictly speaking there are 11 tracks. (5 usual tracks, 5 usual tracks in reverse and toyota pod race track). You have to unlock each track but it is very easy and you just have to get a good time, (not going of the track). This is one of the most advance racing games ever, and has the most up to date car line up (new mini, fords, pegeot, subaru toyota, tvr, jaguar, lexus, VW and auston martin).
Summary: I bought the uk edition of Gran Turismo : Concept expecting more of the excellent gameplay, graphics and cars from GT3. I've not been disappointed. It has many of new cars from all over the world with a special emphasis on European motors. There is also a large selection of concept cars, many of which have appeared in the recent editions of Auto Express. Gameplay The gameplay is very similar to GT3. The main difference is in the GT mode.
Pros: More cars, European cars, Concept cars
Cons: Not a whole game, No improved graphics, Only a couple of courses
Summary: GAME INFORMATION Price: £24.99 Genre: Racing Players: 1-2 If there’s one game genre that made the Playstation as popular as it was, it was probably racing games. We saw the likes of Colin McRae, TOCA and no doubt I’d be run over if I didn’t mention Gran Turismo. One thing to note about all of those games is that they were all so successful that they also saw sequels on the same console. Things have moved on now and PS2 is today highly established and performing well.
Pros: Some great cars to play with, It's more GT!!, Pod Race
Summary: A very good game if you don't own GT3, if a bit short. If you own GT3, stay away as there is little new here, accept a few new lovely cars. It is also a bit easy if you own GT3. It is a good arcade game if you want something a bit quicker. Just hope Gt4 reverts to the old style of play. A few more and new circuits would have improved the game. The graphics still beat most games around.
