Summary: Looking at the reviews from others it seems like they haven't taken the time to really learn the game. It does take a while to get used to pulling off slides and combos to score high Kudos points. With a little practice you can laern to string together huge combos. This isn't an easy game at all and not like your typical racers but it is very fun. Sitting around with friends trying to see who can rack up the most Kudos points is a blast.

Summary: Project Gotham Racing is the worst racing title I have ever played. I understand the kudos system and this could have potentially been a great system if the makers of the game had allowed it to be fun. I don't particularly mind any of the singular events, but the street races were profoundly disappointing and infuriating. The cars apparently are programmed for max wheelspin for the kudos, but this is not necessary.
Summary: This game is very easy to get into. It's a totally different racing game. This may be the racing game for people who don't necessarily like racing games. There may not be too many cars to customize or too many locations, but if you are just interested in the simulation, then this game is everything you need. You don't just race to beat the clock or to win first. It's more of a just-how-well-can-you-drive-really-fast game. But you know what?
Summary: Project Gotham is like a high-performance sports car. It looks absolutely gorgeous, dishing up thrills and giggles in generous portions. But be warned, if you want this as your daily driver, there are plenty of frustruations to live with. Even though it was launched nearly two years ago, the game still has some of the best graphics for an Xbox driver out there, topping newer releases like Burnout 2 and Midnight Club 2.
Anyone who considers themselves a car fan should buy this!!!

Summary: The Xbox has been on store shelves (and in my living room) for two-and-a-half months. During that time I have played some of the best games I've seen in my long tenure as a video game guru, including Star Wars: Obi-Wan, Halo and, Amped. Being distracted by such wonderful examples of gaming genius, like the ones above, and about a half dozen others, my wandering Blockbuster eye always passed over Project Gotham Racing. Boy, was that a mistake.
Summary: No, this is not a batman game as some people thought. It's even better (not that I liked batman games...). Project Gotham easily has over 20 REAL cars, like the F50 and VIPER models (even has the new Mini Cooper). This game uses the soundtrack feature of the Xbox (which lets you play your own music from your cds during the game). In multiplayer mode you can race up to four people at once in over 30 different locations.
Summary: My standard for a great game is a game that when you pick up your controller, you are totally taken away into another world. Anyway, this game - Project Gotham Racing - I kind of stumbled upon and got it cause it was cheap. I am happy to say that so far it is my absolute favorite game for XBOX and the best racing game I've played in a long long time (I'm thinking SNES Super Mario Kart was the last racer that was quite as amazing during the time I played it).Anyway, to...
