you need a wheel to play this, thats pretty critical. I tried with a mouse and keyboard and it was a no go.

I was thinking about picking up the new Logitech G25 wheel package.

GTR games are pure similators, they have always had amazing graphics (GT Legends still looks amazing and it's kinda old) and all but have been realistic meaning they are very tough to learn to play well, forget about using your keyboard unless you like to lose or crash a ton, I played the demo a bit with my PS2 Logitech GT Force wheel and it was really fun but now I can drive for realsies so I have no use for a driving sim.

You're right, this is an awesome game for whoever likes all the technical stuff, the advanced tunning and all that. I played the demo and the graphics and the gameplay were great. Still, I hope I manage to get a nice whell with Ffeedback to be able to enjoy it, without the wheel it can be a little tricky in the turns.

Yep, this game is truly amazing, I love it and I have played the demo and i am going to get this game. Its so realistic, so close racing and its just like real motor sport. I am a huge motor sport fan espically F1. I hate people say its crap cos its too hard or boring, this game is for hardcore racing fans like me. I race 2 stroke karts in real life at the weekends and it is great We have close racing and good overtaking, like this game, so I would know.

you may think karting is a little different from this but its not, they are still v. fast and v. competitive, talking about 0-60mph in 4secs and top out at 90mph some with gears can even do 120mph. Its all good fun

trust me everyone, this game is absolutly fantastic

if anyone wants, ill get a few action screenys from my copy of the game. ive got some new car paintjobs so the game looks even better

its much much better than GTR and GTL doesnt match up to it

the graphics are so intense i can only run 22 cars in a race at night!

ive got my PS2 Driving force pro to play it on, and thats good, but i really would love to have a go on the new G25 wheel, pedals and gear stick set.

i play this game way too much........ 14 hours in the last 2 days

the demo isnt actually as good as the final game, so if you play the demo and think its too easy, get the full game anway, its alot harder

Edit: ive had the full copy of the game since september and ive done most of the driving school, gotta start the championships now.... its a massive game
