Summary: If you're into sportscar racing you'll enjoy this. The physics engine is good, and the structure of the game is well-thought out. It's not strictly linear, but does makes it pretty clear what you need to do at any given time. The tracks are well-rendered. Having been to a number of them, I can say that they did a good job of capturing the feel and atmosphere, especially of the Le Mans track. Highly recommended.
Summary: This game is a superior driving experience. I love it. I find the graphics to be impressive, but it's the game play that keeps me coming back. Let's just say you're playing with the AI set to "hard" and you qualify 9th on the grid. You will have to race your heart out to move up positions and you can just about forget about winning: just as you would in real life. But you can have a heck of a good time trying.
Summary: The graphics are awesome, the handling is pretty easy and we found that the roads are challenging for novice players. A definite negative is the loading time-it does take longer than other games. All in all, we found the game to be quite entertaining and recommned it to any racing fanatic.
Summary: I read some of the early reviews and it didn't look good for the PS2 version. But I bought it anyway. What sold me was the chance to drive Road Atlanta, never offerred on any previous title. At first, the game was a disappointment. The controls didn't feel good, the graphics weren't spectacular, and the load times were extreme. But I continued through the different modes, learning the tracks and earning new cars, and at some point this game took on a new appeal.
Bring the excitement and beauty of endurance racing home!!!

Summary: I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to see fifteen of the 24 Hours of Daytona in February 2001, both because it was the first and only time NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt could participate in the event, and because it was my introduction to the beauty of endurance racing. Le Mans 24 Hours brings this latter aspect home. With over 70 cars available (most must be unlocked), players can try out the different classes in endurance racing.
Summary: I bought my PS2 purely for GT3. When I'd worked my way through to 90% complete, I figured I needed a new game. I bought Le Mans 24 Hours, and was not disappointed. The gameplay is well structured, and you can get straight into a championship without having to waste time working your way through a driving licence. The AI is excellent, and unlike the GT series, the cars don't just ram into you when they come at you from behind.
Summary: Congratulations to Melbourne House and Infogrames for this fabulous racing game! The Le Mans mode, where you race against 23 other cars, is the game's centrepiece. You can race from 10 minutes in increments up to - for the truly dedicated - the full 24 hours. But there's plenty more to the game. Featured alongside the Le Mans circuit are several other tracks, on which the game's Championship mode is run.
Summary: I love this game,it took a couple of hours to fully appreciate the beauty of this game but when it kicked in I was pretty much blown away.I love racing games and up until now this is the best of the bunch including f1 2001 which I REALLY ENJOYED by the way.The sense of speed,the attention to detail,the overall graphical reprsentation of the game is pure and simply excellent.The weather effects are brilliant,during the race there are so many changes and if choose the...
Summary: After the glut of poor racers on the PS2 (and I include Sony's F1 2001 in that), it's great to see a title like Le Mans finally showing us what it's all about. Though sadly this game will be overshadowed (and outsold) by the likes of F1 2001 and the imminent GT3 A-Spec, it should definately not be overlooked.
Summary: Having just returned from the Le Mans race of 2001, and having dried out first (!!), the next thing to do was to purchase this game for my PS2. I have to say that I was not disappointed!!! While the graphics of the cars are not brilliant (although still better than anything this side of GT3), the tracks, trackside graphics and most importantly gameplay are excellent.
