Summary: If you follow F1, you'll know that the 2002 season (this game is based on the 2002 F1 season) was a different line up of courses, not to mention there are several NEW tracks on the schedule now that didn't even exist in 2002. But for a PS2 game, it's a pretty good attempt at a pure F1 enthusiast race simulator. You can easily spend days just getting used to the 'feel' of a car. The responsiveness is VERY critical, frustratingly so at times.
Very fluid animations and high resolution graphics.

Summary: This game has very good high resolution graphics and very fluid animations, it is a little difficult, but I still recommend this game to anyone interested on a racing game. One thing I could say is not very good on this game is its music, I feel is a little simple if we compare it with the music in other games. I really recommend this game.
Summary: This F1 simulator is great for beginners and experts alike. The A.I. is brilliant. Th handling is very realistic it understeers ( When the front Tires have less traction (grip) than the rear wheels ) and Oversteers ( When the rear tires have less traction (grip) than the front wheels) like a real f1 race car.
Summary: This is a very Good game. It is a great simulation style play. It captures just what one would expect in a Grand Prix game . One i looked for , for along time . Its exciting and it sounds great. The race is just that a race...its competitive and very realistic style. Its a must have for a Grand Prix style racer ethusaist .
Summary: This game may have very good different abilities of how you can race. But, the graphics are terrible. Atari has made some great games in the past so when I went to Toysrus to get a game I chose this one because it was the newest edition and I thought that it would be the best yet. Unfortunently, I ended up playing it once and never played again. Since I have a F1 game from 2000 made by EA Sports which is excellent, I wanted to update it a little anyway.
Summary: This is quite simply the best F1 game for the PS2 that is sold in America. It's not perfect, but it is as close to perfect as any I've played on ps2 (I've played them all). In fact, Gran Tourismo 3 is perhaps the only racing game made for the PS2 that is better than Grand Prix Challenge. And it's a surprising close call between the two. If you love F1, it deserves your attention!
Summary: I give this game 4.5 stars. My impressions after 2 weeks THE GOOD IMPRESSIONS AT FIRST: - Real and exciting F1 car sounds, when accelerating and when slowing down. - Great graphics, the cars look great and the tracks look very good, almost as good as GT3. - Magnificent replay. You can watch the race from the view of a TV camera and from any car. There are 6 views per car (including rear view).
Summary: Addicting!! I play every day, I need it. And I have heard that if you have a logitech wheel the handling of the car is superb. From time to time I have heavy rain during the race, and the effect of the rain in your view and the water splashed from the other cars is so cool! Sometimes you have lightnings and thunders. The handling of the car, the feeling of the speed, the pessure of the race, now it?
Summary: This is a great game, and you can get it brand new for only $29.99! And to correct one of the other reviewers, you CAN use the Logitech steering wheel. I use it all the time, in fact I've never not used it playing this game. If you couldn't, I wouldn't own it. Great graphics, realistic driving simulation, really cool cockpit view while driving (it feels like you're really in an F1 car), and the best replays I've seen in any game.
