Excerpt: Project Gotham Racing is one of those Platinum Hits on the Xbox that I had to check out. I enjoy a good racing game, and other media outlets have fawned all over this game. One of the bragging points of Project Gotham Racing is the real radio station sounds found in the different cities. Players earn kudos from running races based upon their performance as they run their vehicle on different tracks.
Conclusion: Not as good as the stunning RalliSport Challenge, although PGR provides hours of thrilling gameplay, and slick presentation mixed with realistic scenery makes driving around PGR's four lifelike cities a real pleasure - if you can put up with the difficulty.
Excerpt: While I enjoy playing driving games at the arcade as much as the next guy, I generally do not like them for the console. Probably the main reason is because I stink at them, and the only reason I did as good as I did on Project Gotham Racing was because the nice people at Radica were kind enough to send me their Gamester Pro Racer Wheel, which pretty much saved this game for me.
Excerpt: Project Gotham Racing seems to
be the first legitimate racing game released for the newest, hottest console on the
market, but what makes this title any different? The typical racing game ends up
falling into the same rut of all other racing games...but what about PGR?
Better than the rest?
Project Gotham is a title that does deserve its fair share of attention.
Conclusion: Project Gotham Racing is about taking the driver’s seat in some of the world’s hottest cars. These cars are available in the game, the MR2 Spyder, MINI Cooper S, SLK 320 Mercedes, New Beetle RSI, TT Roadster, TT Coupe, Z3 Roadster 3.0i, RX-8, Camaro SS, Boxster S, Speedster, Focus Cosworth, Lancer Evolution VII, Impreza WRX, Esperante, Skyline GTR, Exige, F355 Spider, 355 F1, V12 Vanquish, Corvette Z06, Feroce, 360 Spider, 360 Modena, Tuscan, Viper RT10, 911 GT2, Carrera...
Conclusion: Bizzare Creations haben in einer sehr kurzen Entwicklungszeit ein geniales Rennspiel auf den Markt gebracht. Neben echte Autofirmen, zweihundert verschiedene Strecken in vier großen Metropolen und einer Menge an Innovation beweist Microsoft, dass man schon zum Launch einer Konsole sehr gute Software präsentieren kann.
Excerpt: FPS, sports Extrêmes, plates-formes/aventure, il fallait bien également que Microsoft couvre la catégorie bagnoles au lancement de sa Xbox. C'est donc des petits gars de Bizarre Creations qui s'y collent pour nous proposer un Project Gotham Racing directement inspiré de l'excellent Metropolis Street Racer sur Dreamcast...
