Summary: I was hoping for a better more indepth action of quality here at INDY such as we can find in Forza Motor sport and NASCAR 2005 Chase for the cup even being a bit better as far as race action and graphics compared to this repeat of Indy 500. Don't see much difference in "2005"! I was a bit discouraged by the arcade like graphics and lack of higher quality race action that I am wanting for an INDY simulator. I want some high quality INDY and nobody has delivered! Not bad.
Summary: I have last years Indycar Series for PS2. When I switched to XBOX, I decided to wait until the newer version came out. I was suprised to see that there was no difference. I even checked the box again to make sure I didn't get last year's by mistake. Overall the game is good, especially considering that it's the only Indy game out there. However, if you are an Indy race fan you will be dissapointed. Here are a few suggestion for the folks at Codemasters: 1.
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: Sehr vieles ist bei Rennspielen, die sich auf die amerikanische Indycar aber auch verwandte Nascar-Serie beziehen, Geschmackssache, ich jedenfalls habe sie stets dem Formel 1 Zirkus vorgezogen, da mir in erster Linie die Fahrphysik wesentlich mehr zusagte. Andere hingegen sind der Ansicht, dass es bei vielen solcher amerikanischer Rennveranstaltungen mit ihren etlichen Runden im Kreis zu langweilig zugehe: auch diese Gegenmeinung ist durchaus nachvollziehbar.
Pros: Gutes Tutorial, sehr realistisch, Schadensmodell, umfangreich, temporeich, spannend
