Being a huge fan of strategy games as well as fighting games I felt that The Collective and LucasArts had a flawless idea.

Conclusion: Codemasters has been out some pretty great looking race titles over the years, all of which have had some of the best looking vehicles and environments ever to hit the Xbox. Unfortunately this is not the case with IndyCar Series 2005.
