Some of the game music just didn’t sound right. It’s really on my personal opinion because the music was not to my own personal taste. The music in Gran turismo was loud and came off crystal clear from your TV speakers. There weren’t any voices in this game what so ever I think that is because they put so much into making the cars and making them sound and look realistic. The crash all for the most part had a different engine rev each time you picked a different one by a different maker. Or if you tuned the engine and turbo up it would sound real powerful.
Even the tire screeches as you wee coming out of turns and bends sounding pretty realistic and there is nothing like the tires hitting asphalt and dusting your opponents. This is a game I would definitely leave the sound track off to considering the fact that it is so much better without it and it makes it seem more realistic and racing like. In reality the sounds did a lot to make this a more realistic racing game and it gave you a more overall racing experience.
Gran Turismo : Game Play 10/10
This game is for one or two players. It has two modes Arcade and Simulation. Arcade is pretty much like any other racing game you may have experience, you pick one of the available cars and you and a friend go head to head to see who is better. Or you can go against the and try to unlock the bonus tracks. Then you have simulation, the mode that
made this game as popular as it was. The simulation mode is where you had to try and pass 3 different driving test B, A, and International A. Each one had 7 smaller pre test and 1 Final Exam. This test considered by most were extremely difficult and this is probably the worst thing on the game. They made this part too realistic and unless you were Michael Andretti you were not getting through this part. You raced for Credits; credits were like money. You used the credits to buy bigger faster and better cars from all the top dealers. Like Nissan, Dodge, Mazda, and others. You could also buy used cars in the start of the game. These were enough to get you through the B-Class races. You could tune any car in the game keep that in mind. I would say it was worthless to tune cars that were considered C cars, because they usually didn’t run correctly. The games difficulty on Arcade was adjustable. On simulation it was difficult. There is a save feature using 7 blocks of memory.
Overall 10 out of 10
This is still a fabulous game. I had more fun and put more hours into this than any other racing game. Even though the Gran Turismo 2 is a bit better than this you still could of
have fun. This game is suitable for single players and if you friend over. The fun of this game will not wear thin after you buy it and play it for a week. You could always
hop back into this one and play it over and over. The replay value is pretty high, considering the facts that I think that this game ahs no ending. The fun factor is very high
too, and this is a great party game. If you don’t have much money and your looking for a good challenge and something that will keep you busy look no further than Gran Turismo.
