Summary: The IndyCar Racing game is an excellent racing simulation game. Both this version and the newer IndyCar Series 2005 provide very realistic simulations. If you enjoy racing games. check it out!
Summary: Of all the racing games I own for xbox, this is one of the worst. The graphics are chopping and not realistic looking. The cars don't handle smoothly and really don't convey a sense of realism. The accidents are very tame by racing standards. (not much damage shown). My favorite is when you pit and they need to do extensive work on the car. It looks like one of members of the pit crew is performing a "massage" on the brake cylinder. LOL.
Summary: Overall, this is a pretty good game that can hold its own in the lineup of racing simulations. Of course, there isn't much competition on the xbox as far as recing games go that simulate an actual racing series (as opposed to Project Gotham's action racing style). However, there are a number of disappointments that come along with this game. For one, the graphics are OK, but not great by any stretch. Probably a straight PS2 port.
Summary: This title is somewhat unique for Codemasters because of its previous efforts such as Colin McRae Rally and Pro Race Driver. After all, it's now entering a market full of Rally and GT racers. Because of this, it's hard to directly compare the game to that of any particular competitor, except the fact that IndyCar series is rather similar to NASCAR -- albeit faster and without all the paint swapping and helmet-throwing.
Summary: This game isn't realisitic at all. When the cars crash no significant damage takes place just some small pieces fly off but that's about all. The spotters voice is so dull and doesn't even sound human. It sounds like a robot. If you are looking for a good open wheel sim then don't get this game. If you are looking for an arcade style game then you'll probably like it.
Summary: First off this is Teresas' son Chris. This game is just horrible. The graphics are terrible. Unfortantly nothing eles the game as to offer is any better. I have F1 2001 and it is a far better game then this. Even if you are and IRL fan whcih I am not you won't like this game. I mean how can you make a good game that is based apon the worst racing series in the world. If you wanna go make lefts all day buy a NASCAR game and skip the road races.
Summary: If you are an IndyCar series fan, an open wheel fan, or just an Indy 500 fan..get this game. Having been to the last 15 500's at the speedway, I longed for the day when I could take an IRL driver around the speedway! And the time is now. Graphics are good, gameplay is good and the AI is tough to beat. I own F1 2001 for the xbox, and this is AS GOOD as that title. Both are great games... GO HELIO!!
Worth the wait on XBOX... superior graphics, controls
27 June 2003
Summary: It took me about an hour to get used to the handling of the game. The game moves so fast! The sense of speed is acute. The cars fly around the track impossibly close to each other. The XBOX graphics show the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in all its glory. I started out driving the car in chase camera mode. After a half hour, I switched to cockpit camera... what a rush!
