Summary: Good game.Fun.Nothing like GT4 car.Difference you don't buy or sell your vehicles.No points/credits.You have to win the bikes by beating your opponent,which is the computer.It's honestly so close to being impossible any more difficult on some bike are a little ridiculous when trying to win.Extremely frustrating.I won several bikes but most do me no good cause almost all cannot be entered to race on most boards.Overall it really is a fun game,i'm certainly not sorry i...
Summary: I read a few reviews of Tourist Trophy before I bought the game, so I kind of knew what to expect. I've been playing the game for a couple of weeks and I'm a fan of the game. It's not easy, but I like the challenge. The graphics are the best I've seen to date for a PS2 motorcycle game. Granted, the game was produced by the same people from Gran Turismo 4, and uses the same racing tracks with a few new ones thrown in. I got my money's worth.
Summary: Tourist Trophy is almost an exact copy of Gran Turismo 4 with the exception of a few different tracks and a few extra menu options and rider gear/apparel. And of course you are on 2 wheels instead of 4. They physics are kind of weird but as anyone can imagine, it is tough to nail all the nuances of motorcycle racing on a game console. 2-player racing is fun. 4 of 5 stars, rent it first just to be sure it's your style of game.
Summary: I have yet to play the other main motorcycle games, but this one is far better than Road rash as far as close to the real thing. I do find it disturbing that the liter bikes can wheelie like no tomorrow and the ZRX1200 cannot. that thing in real life is a torqe monster. and the wrecks could be more realistic and make you have to go pick up your bike. Overall though great purchase.
Summary: The Gran Turismo creaters at Polophony Digital have been focused on the cars for years. Gran Turismo games 1-4 were great games and were all claimed as "The Real Driving Simulator". By 2006, Polophony now creates their latest Gran Turismo game using only bikes and scooters and called it Tourist Trophy: The Real Riding Simulator.
Summary: Tourist Trophy offers entertaining video playback and realistic riding experiences for the variety of motorcycles. The only drawback is the races and race series are limited and lack authenticity. Still fun though. The game plays without glitches on a PS3. A file on the HDD replaces the removable media storage of the PS2. If the racing offered more real world scenarios I would rate it excellent.
Challenging to say the least.....Good game overall

Summary: I love the realism this game has but, it gets tiresome after awhile. There are those moments when you just want to ride like the wind without flying over the bars or laying the bike down. This game will keep you entertained for awhile though. I managed to ride a wheelie up to 185mph down Nürburgring's straight. Game AI is pretty good, graphics are also pretty good seeing as how it's from Polyphony Digital Inc.
Summary: Being right-handed, I wish the option to steer with the right analog stick and throttle/brake with the left analog stick was available. Alas, it's not. Yes, I'm well aware the throttle is on the right in the real world. Even so, I'd gladly trade a more realistic controller layout for greater steering precision.
Summary: I bought this game about two weeks ago, at first I wasn't too impress with the game as I couldn't stay on the bike so I decided to turn it into a show piece, well after today I have a COMPLETELY different opinion, the game is AWESOME. However it would have been much more appreciated if I could have Tune-up & Design (Graphics) my bike, also you should have had the option to increase the opponents as in Moto Racer.
