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: If your a beginner then this game rocks but for anyone who has anymore skill than that I would move on. This game is simply not worth it. What gets it for me is that the racing experience is simply not free enough. I wanna drive how I wanna drive and though the game does not have as much control over that as does FM2 and 3 it still dictates many aspects.
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 will say that PGR4 is a very realistic looking game. But that's its biggest shortfall. YOU CAN'T TURN! The worst thing about it is while you have to slow down completely to turn, other racers do not. This sets you back and sometimes you'll drift nicely around a corner only to exit in an uncontrollable slide. And where's the motivation for even playing? At least Burnout Paradise had something to guide you through the game and give you a reason to keep driving.
Clumsy controls, cars steering is rubbish, some decent citie ...

Summary: 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.
Pros: racing in famous cities and the graphics
Cons: rubbish replay value, doesn't hold your attention for long
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: Being a big Forza 2 fan, I played this game for a total of about 30 mins before turning it off to be never played again. When will game developers learn that all the best graphics in the world don't make a game that is awkward to play, good. Maybe I'm comparing it too much to Forza, but it just has nothing on it. Even Need for Speed: Carbon was more fun to play. I was really looking forward to this game.
Pros: Awesome graphics
Cons: Awkward handling Bikes that you can't control Crash into a wall at 250km/h and all you get is a cracked windscreen!
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 ...
