Grand Turismo 4

GT3 is still by far the best driving simulator out there. From what it looks like, GT4 will meet and beat anything GT3 had to offer.

The overall gameplay is very similar to the other GT games. There are added tracks (finally), added cars (yes), and improved graphics, sounds, and menus. You can't imagine my surprise when I bought my M3 and discovered Yosemite as a track (I just returned from my wedding in Yosemite). Talk about awesome!
The AI seems improved, and there's actually a buzz when you run into something (similar to getting stunned on other games). So no more bumper car feeling!
Is this game worth the $50? Definitely. Every other driving game pales in comparison.

The rally racing is more difficult due to the new penalty system. Sure, I hated it initially, but it actually makes more sense and adds a higher degree of difficulty. No longer can I simply act like bumper cars and fly around corners without problem. The traction is not as good either, and the snow mode is downright frustrating at times. The added rally cars are a nice addition, but I'm saddened to see that the prize cars for even the beginning rounds are actually too good. It's almost as if you can trick out a Lancer or Subaru at the beginning, then win a few of those races, and you'd end up with a Cien or Toyota Raider. Of course the Cien is funky, but you get the idea.
The suspension system seems more solid. While I only messed around with the settings a little in GT3, GT4's system can make a huge difference to an already awesome car. My M3 went from barely winning some races to absolutely creaming them with a few adjustments. Of course I'd like to credit that to driver skill, but I can't.
The driving physics are relatively the same in game. Sure, they say they're upgraded, which they probably are, but I can't tell a huge difference. It's already awesome as it was/is.
The models and scenary are gorgeous though. They did a great job with that.
My final score for this game is about a 9.6. I like the improvements on an already great game. Internet play would be nice, as would the option for traditional rally races (time trials) or something that I've liked the concept of, one way destination races (much like Nurburgein or however the heck you spell it). Add those, and you'd have my dream game. Without them though, and it's still the best PS2 game I've ever played.

It is quite frustrating hwoever because the cars are so hard to drive. I guess I will get the hang of it eventually but really the lack fo traction on some of these tires is a real challenge. I have yet to get 1st place on a race sicne I bought it and the licence tests are a pain.
maybe mroe practice will work but its really hard >_<;;... or I just suck but I refuse to believe THAT

i just saw this game in the shops and you can trade it in for four games and a buck to get gran turismo 4. its kinda worth it when you have crappy games to trade it in.
takes so much time to collect all the cars in the games. but i hate the endurance races to take so much time to complete. i mean real time! maybe about 2 hours for just one race. going around and around, i got really bored too. cant even save it half way through the races...
