This is a fun game to play, but it does have it's faults. Pop-up and slow-down are much in evidence here as the game tests the limits of the PS2.Loading times when you enter events are quite long.Cops only bother you when driving to the many locations on the map, and their AI is pretty bad.But, if you can see past these little niggles, you'll find an enjoyable and often challenging racer.

The cars you buy and race against are well detailed, with nice shiny bodywork, windows and lights that you can operate, and a proper in-car view that is fun for driving around but not for racing.

There isn't any car customising or set-up tinkering here,beyond picking the colour of your car and its interior, and three levels of mechanical upgrades. TIP: Many of the racing clubs that you race your way to the presidency of give free upgrades.

Besides the racing clubs, there are approx. 250 challenges across the map, covering speed traps, time trials and races. Be aware, though, that about 50 of these are only available to play on online multiplayer.

The racing is very good, with generally fast and aggressive opponents.The AI cars are not perfect and make mistakes and have accidents just like you WILL ! As you progress through the game, the races get faster and things move at a fair old lick. Fast reactions can make the difference between coming first or last when racing against some of the fastest cars on the planet in fairly dense traffic.

Buying houses is really only a distaction from the generally fun racing, but it is important to make sure you have spare garage space for the bonus cars you can win.

So, despite the minor niggles, this is an enjoyable game and I would recommend it to any petrol-heads out there.

P.S. Ther are no shopping trolleys in this game - only the type of cars that you dream of racing !!

First off this game is AWESOME fun. The first criteria of any game is to please the punter, and this game does it in spades with its pretty visuals, impressive array of cars to collect, huge selection of tasks and sublime handling. Falling happily somewhere between a sim and arcade racer, the cars are sure-footed but when pushed hard have the edginess that makes any high speed race thrilling by being potentially dangerous. Your nerves really feel it when racing at breakneck speed through oncoming traffic against competitors who are as apt to make a mistake as you are. Controlled realism is a good way to describe how things unfold, where the consequences of a hit are never catastrophic but always in the hands of the player. Which means that when you win you really feel you deserve it. Brilliant.

And what a setting Hawaii is, with every foot of it mapped and ready to be explored. I've driven hundreds of miles already (I've had the game less than two weeks) just looking the place over and so far have not found anything to be bored by. There are hundreds of other cars on the roads and they can behave in an occasionally unpredictable and erratic manner, but not so that they become an annoyance.

Unlike the sat-nav voice that's supposed to help you get from point to point. She sounds uncomfortably like Ruby Wax and you wonder at times if she's just winding you up when she turns you into oncoming traffic when there's no apparent reason to. But this niggle is largely rectified by learning the road layouts and how Hawaii's junctions work.

The police are in evidence and seem only interested if you go way over the limit or make contact with any of the `residents' who are constantly driving around.

Gran Turismo takes to the streets, but it brings with it the same flaws of Gran Turismo and then some, and without the sheer lunacy obsessive petrol head nature of Gran Turismo. Or the number of cars.

The idea is you drive around the massive island to do each challenge. To start with you can only do the most basic level races using the most basic cars. Clock up enough driver experience (by winning races and general driving) and you unlock the next level of races and cars. Once you have done a challenge you no longer have to drive to it, you simply open your map, select the challenge and you will be taken straight to it. Initially, forcing you to drive from challenge to challenge is a great way to force you to explore the island. Eventually though, it becomes a bit of a chore. The scenery and roads aren't varied enough and having to drive 20 miles to the nearest challenge becomes increasingly frustrated, particularly as you will attract the attention of the abundance of cops and pay a fine if caught (which, rather bizarrely they can do even when you are still moving).

A neat addition is sat nav to save you having to look at your on screen map. Yeah, right. The sat nav must have come straight from poundland - the posh speaking lady will happily guide you the wrong way up one way streets, announce turns just as you go past them and at times even completely forget to announce turns at all. Frustrating when driving from location to location, it becomes infuriating during races themselves.

The races are a variety of races with a number of opponents, speed trial tests where you have to complete a course within a specified time and speed camera trials where you have to clock a particular speed through a series of speed traps.
