Summary: I love race games and this one is good. I was expecting to see road courses in this game but there isn't any. All the tracks are oval tracks like you would see in Nascar and Indy is the premier one to win. It is a challenge to race with the cars but thats what racing is about. You can make adjustments to the car in an attempt to go faster and I'm having fun with it. If you like this type of racing I would definitely reccommend it.
Summary: Fantastic game. Fly along 15 different IRL races in a year. Pick up valuable points to finish overall ahead of serious competitors like Helio Castroneves, Sam Hornish Jr., and Gil de Ferran. Any crash can seriously set you back in the race results, just like the real thing. Wind drafting, night races, and great graphics, you gotta try this grame. Truly a dark horse game and just a whole lotta fun! Pleasantly surprised and great replay value.
Summary: I almost didn't buy this game after reading reviews about no steering wheel support. Well my steering wheel works perfectly with it. I have the Logitech EX Racing Wheel. I am so glad I bought it anyway, because it is the very best Indy Car racing game, there is not too much available, so this is it for now. The handling of the cars is top notch, very important. The detail can not compare to Gran Tourismo 4, but it is not bad.
Summary: At first this game didn't look too exciting because I usually like Road Racing games like F1, Pro Race Driver, and Cart. But since this game was the first opened wheeled oval tracked car game I decided to buy it. When I did I was amazed. The car graphics were awsome and it was extremely realistic.
Summary: Codemasters have done an excellent job with their latest racing release for PS2. Indycar Series, released with backing from IRL features it all, the speed, the sound and the action that will make you sweet and leave you craving for more. In PRO mode, the cars are fully adjustable to better suit the different tracks and the handling is simply astonishing.
Summary: I've only had the chance to play for about 1 hour, but this game is really impressive! Most important, the feel of the driving is excellent. Steering is responsive, and yet stable on the straightaways. It's challenging to stay on the ideal line, but also forgiving enough that drifting wide doesn't put you in the wall. The suspension shows good movement over bumps. The graphics are solid.
Summary: The gameplay is realistic, the graphics are incredible, and the cars really seem like their going 225 mph. The game does support steering wheels, so I would disregard the other reviews. One problem is that there is no rear view mirror in the in-car view. Create-a-car isn't the greatest either, but other than those few problems the game is great.
