Summary: Indy Car Series 2005 is a fun, challenging game. The car's engines are realistic. The engines sound just like the real F-1 cars. The graphics are pretty descent . The only good graphics you need on the game is the cars and track. The game offers a variety of F-1 cars with authentic drivers. During a race, the AI is very well matched with the player. The player can adjust an option that allows the AI to adjust their skill to the player racing.
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: 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: 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

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!
Summary: In word this is excellent. Okay left turns only but at least you get to mix it up a bit. I played the first one on the playstation it was a gift and I never really got into it. I just used to race on Indy circuit. Then my friend bought this and said try doing the series and then it opened up in front of my eyes. The tracks do vary quite a lot some are real tight with harsh corners that make you fight for space.
