I was a PS3 and PC fan for a very long time especially when coming to racing and driving simulators, however, a 20 minute spin in a porsche 911 GT3 around FUJIMI KAIDO at a friends house and I was utterly and completely hooked!
I was fortunate enough to have my birthday coming up around that time and was given an xbox 360, I went out and bought that game and until the release of Forza 4 had racked up around 300/400 hours of game play OFFLINE!!!!
It was everything I wanted of a racing simulator and more, the opportunity to perform insane engine swaps and add real body kits to the ccars was great, the cars them selves were amazing and look and sound great and the phyics in the game were not up to PC par but still pretty great!
I felt the graphics were amazing and the tracks were modelled/ made up really really well!
It's such a great game, I don't think there's even anything negative to say about it!
I'd recommend it to anyone, even though it's an old game now, I still pop back to it for some good engine swap fun and to play around on the long italian track!
