Gran Turismo 3 - PS2

Pros Cons
Amazing visuals  
My first entry into the GT series

Ultimately, there's little more that racing fans can ask for that Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec doesn't have. Its endless tuning options and many racing events will keep you engrossed in the game for many months, and it's accessible enough to be enjoyed by anyone who's the least bit interested in driving an exotic car, and quite frankly, who isn't? Your PlayStation 2 library would be incomplete without this game.

Gran Turismo 3 - PS2

Gran Turismo 3

I don't like racing games like this much (I'm more into street racing video games) but with how realistic this was, I had to give it an OK score. I really hate that how have to get a whole bunch of differant drivers license in order to compete in certain events. I also don't like that you have to have differant cars for different racing events. But besides that, it's a pretty good game!

Gran Turismo 3 - PS2

Thee Standard in racing.

This game is overall awsome. As you most likly already know, but if you happen to have not heard about it. . . . get out of that fanboy rock you have been hiding under. And plug in GT. Let me start with the Grafix. . . . . Where do I start this game is briliant the detail in the track's, the car's. Everytime a GT tittle come's out you say "How could it possibly get any better than this" and they always find a way to rock your sock's off. The audio is to a T, from the exaust to the soundtrack. The soundtrack is a compilation of different artist to pump you up as you race threw the track's all very well done. The control's, are perfect from the presure sensitivity adding more controll to your controller movement's. Presure sensing button's so you can just tap the break's or really ream into your pad's. Just giving you unheard of controll. The steering wheel is another deal all together, actually throwing you into the driver's seat. It might take a while to get used to or even longer to master but the stearing wheel I belive add's to an already masterfully designed game. The replay value is huge, having to earn each independant licence (as in previous GT's), the added feature I liked the most in this game was the improved rally racing GT3 just add's more feel to the dirt than ever before. Now you have to be asking (if you are still reading) why didn't he give this a clear out 5 if this game is so phenominal. Well I will tell you, they took out the option to buy used car's. Part of the game that I loved was finding the deal in the used car section like the hatchback geo and throwing so much torque in that biznitch that she would give the F-GT a run for it's money. Beside's that which just about everyone can ignore, it is a fenominal game. Well done SCEA well done. And if you are looking to buy this game you might want to price out GT4. . . one word SUEWEET, but you can't go wrong with the GT series when it comes to racing I still play the oringinal GT from the PS1. If you are into racing this game is for you, and if you are not then this game might just turn you onto the racing game genre. Plug and Play and ENJOY.

Great Gameplay and Graphics, Nothing More You Could Ask For

The Real Driving Simulator!
Claims the first Gran Turismo. From the great car graphics and stunning gameplay, there is no other driving simulator like GT3. The tracks have every little detail, from the crowds into the stands to the actual signs in the city tracks. A must play, the controls are simple enough that you can learn quickly enough so that you can actually have time to play the game, instead of having to go through countless instruction manuals to find the acceleration button. PLAY THIS GAME!
