Summary: One of the best racing games ever. You literally feel your car as it shudders in and out of turns. Hitting the brakes causes smoke to come bursting out and streaks the pavement with rubber. The game makes you realize how dangerous the sport is-- I mean simply overtaking the guy in front of you is a harrowing experience. Sim-wise you have control of gears, throttle, wheel, weight jacker and burn-setting.
Summary: Right - first off the bat, let me say this. If you feel ill at the mere mention of racing on an oval, this game probably will do very little to change your mind. IndyCar Series 2005 is fantastic at what it simulates, but if you don't like the subject matter, I wouldn't pin your hopes on it enlightening you. Then again, possibly it might. You see, ICS 2005 is a draining, thrilling and intense experience. Yes - the only time you turn right will be exiting the pit lane.
