Am I the only one who doesn't like this game? The game itself runs very slowly (And people were moaning that Mario Kart was too slow) and the handling is actually quite crap. When you're only going 30 mph, you don't suddenly spin out of control, with back wheels sliding left, right and centre. But you do on this game. I think it's an overated game and Rallisport 2 is so much better.

Your thoughts?

Definately.

GT games are too limited.

GT games are dull as hell.

Race 100 hunderd laps round the same track to unlock a car?

Errrrrr no thanks.

I also hear that GT4 is gonna have a penalty system online so if you hit another persons car you get a 10 second speed penalty. That sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

For me Project Gotham, Rallisport 2 and TOCA Race Driver are all better than GT3 and by the sounds of GT4 as well. They manage to provide a realistic racing experience but not get too anal about the realism thing and stay fun. Especially as Forza Motorsport comes out later in the year which is gonna have even more customisation options than even GT games, customised skins for your cars online? oh god the options for that are gonna be immense.

GT is simply boring, PGR2 is clever and fun.

PGR2 blows the Gran Turismo series out of the water if you directly compare them on both the presentation (graphics, sound, interface) but rather more importantly on the driving side of things. PGR2 is a fun racer, GT isn't. Hell, in GT4 Prologue you hit anything and you get limited to 50 KPH for 10 seconds. Where's the fun in that? Sure, it makes it necessary for you to be a very precise driver to get anywhere, but in PGR you have to be a stylish driver AND fast to win.

I'm also a big fan of the real life cities, and although GT4 will have more cars, I find 110 or whatever it is now with the downloadable content to be plenty.

The best bit of the GT series is the tuning and buying part of it. But that is pretty much micro management, and if that is what I want then I'd be better off playing Civilization than GT.

For me racing games are about the driving, and in that, PGR2 is the greatest ever.

Loving this game just now :D

Live rules.

Can't understand the people claiming it's better than Gran Turismo though :S

Sorry guys, it's a decent arcade racer, but GT it is not, can't wait to get the single player GT and then go online with my garage :D

PGR2 vs GT3!!!

WINNER: GT3

Sega GT 2002 isn't a bad game. Great for petrol heads. Sega GT Online would be a better bet - GT2002+ and it's on Live. If I ever saw it cheap I'd probably get it.

For me it is the sheer driving pleasure that does it. If you want tuning and buying, get Sega GT2002. I think it is very under rated and can be found for 10 if you look around. Two million options and combinations or something like that. Or even get Sega GT Online which is much the same. I'll get it at some point.

That was the best part of the game for me. Being able to buy and sell cars, upgrading them etc etc
