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 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: 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.
Summary: I was about to throw my PS2 out the window (thanks to AE Sports Grand Prix Challenge, which won't let you pass the qualification tests and "forgets" the ones you did pass) when my copy of Grand Prix Challenge arrived. Yeehhaaaa! Realistic imagery, addicting competition, etc. Granted, I like the little arrows that AE Sports puts in the upper window to warn you of upcoming turns, but I've found that like real racing (I raced motorcycles), you learn the turns pretty quickly...
Summary: No, the graphics aren't near as good as GT3, but they're more than adequate; especially when you factor in the realistic driving models. I have no idea what it's like to actually drive a state-of-the-art Formula One Race Car, but from watching them on television this game seems to have made it possible for me to get as close as I ever will. It's great for beginners and experts alike. There's three different levels of difficulty; Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert.
Summary: Wow! What an awesome game. The controls take a few hours to get used to but once you do this thing rocks! I have never raced a game where I actually felt like I was racing other people (except online of course) or had the adrenaline rush this game gives. I actually have raced professionally (i.e. I got paid) and still instruct so I'm in real formula cars on a regular basis.
