Retro touring car racing re-born.,
This review is from: Superstars V8 Racing - Next Challenge (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
As a bit of an old guy, I too remember and love the old ToCA PS1 games. They were all about good, close, paint-swapping racing. Not car collecting, modding or painting.
GRID was a bit of a let down for a lot of people, mainly because it threw away the old authenticity of the previous games and went for a more PGR kind of experience. I've got nothing against that, but I always longed for a game to bring back the glory days. Race Pro filled the gap for a while, but it is a ruthless sim, and ToCA was never about that.
If you are expecting anywhere near the quality of graphics and depth of the likes of Forza 3 or NFS Shift, then you are going to be one unhappy gamer if you get SV8 not knowing what it's really all about. Please consider yourself warned and don't blame us for wasting your cash.
If, on the other hand, you too long for the PS1 glory days, and those old classic touring car games, then this ladies and gentleman, is the second coming.
Oh, and for those who bought the first Superstars V8 game and thought it wasn't all that, then this one is indeed a lot better. Recommend you try the demo on Xbox live first though.

Agree completely. TOCA on PS1 was a gem, I remember thinking, wow, once they do this on more advanced consoles with smoother framerates etc. it will be incredible! But since then the Codemasters games were dumbed down too much which was a shame - why not at least have a full sim option? I love Forza 3 but I'd like to try this too.
