Summary: This game advertises as a "real driving sim" but it is far from it. It is a hodge-podge of both arcade and sim racing and I don't find it particularly fun or addicting. They have ridiculous trials and idiotic races that makes no sense and wouldn't happen in the "real" world. No where would any moron create a track with a jump on a corner but here they not only do that but they use it ALOT!The ridiculous "cone gate" races are just dumb.
Summary: For a new Xbox game this game has choppy graphics at best, and features to fit a PS1, not a new age game. This game has not changed since the first game came out. Unless your into to realistic racing games with bad graphics, dont buy this game.
Summary: I waited months for this game, and it was time wasted. Nowhere does this game compare to PGR2 or PGR3. PGR2 was groundbreaking and was quite the competion when Gran Turismo was at the top of the charts. PGR3 looked great and had all the fancy cars, but it lacked the attention to detail that the previous game had. This was probably due to the fact that Microsoft was pushing to get the game released simulataneously with the Xbox 360 launch. The game suffered because of it.
One of the worst racing games I've played sadly let down by bad controls and car handling
22 January 2010
Excerpt: I picked this game up from CEX, the second hand store and even regret paying the £6 I paid for it. The game has great graphics and even has famous cities you can race in such as Las Vegas, New York, London, Tokyo etc but it feels too arcadey. The controls are clumsy and every time you turn a corner, you bump into everything. The handbrake doesn't improve the situation that much.
Summary: Reading the reviews, I'm clearly in the minority, but here goes... I've enjoyed games like CMR and NFS Most Wanted on the PC, and having switched to a console, this seemed like a popular choice for a racing game. Why? 20 minutes kicking it about in Arcade mode, and I'm already bored. Sure, I suppose it's pretty, but the sound effects are limp and unappealing, the music inappropriate or distracting (seriously, "Flight of the Bumble Bee -- in a *racing* game???
Summary: before i start i will agree that the driving realism is really good and the grafix superb but... ...i bought this game thinking that it was going to be even better than its predesesor (which by the way i thought was amazing, to say the least) but to be honest i think this one is very dissapointing.
Excerpt: Ho comprato Project Gotham Racing 4 spinto dall'entusiasmo delle gare vissute con il precedente PGR3, ma devo confessarvi che è stata una semi delusione :( Forse un appassionato di guida dopo aver provato giochi con un livello di simulazione più elevato ...
Summary: Guten Tag, ich möchte heute gern über das Spiel Project Gotham Racing 4 berichten, ich hab mich total gefreut als ich es bekommen habe, aber die Freude hielt nicht lange.... Ich fange einfach mal mit der Grafit an, ich finde die Grafik ok, aber auch nicht mehr, leider habe ich zur Zeit nur einen Röhren-TV, aber wenn man es mit der Grafik von bespielsweise Resident Evil (auch auf Röhren-Tv) vergleich, dann sieht man wie durchschnittlich die Grafik ist.
Pros: viele Autos, gute Musik
Cons: zu schwer, unrealistisch, unfaire Gegner, kleine Fahrfehler werden sehr bestraft
