STAFF REVIEW of Project Gotham Racing (Xbox)

Project Gotham Racing Box art The overall appeal of this game is amazing. This game is fantastic, even if you don't like cars/racing, this game will get you sucked in. With a huge track selection, and a wide variety of music, and amazing gameplay, this game is a must have for all types of gamers. The game may look like just another so-so racing game, but it's actually very deeper than that with superb graphics.


This game plays awesome.... I have to say it is frusterating at times, but it is not overly hard or overly easy. It take time and practice but when you complete a goal you feel like you have accomplished something. The cars each have an individual feel, I do not know if the feel is accurate because I have never drive any of those cars in real life. But I know what a FWD vs. and AWD, vs. at RWD car drives like and it seems to me like they have done a great job making these cars drive and handle like the real deal holyfield. The Arcade Race is a personal favorite and a personal pain... there have been some moments when I have almost thrown my controller out of the wondow, but there have been many more moments of me sitting and smiling teary eyed watching my flawless gold medal replays over and over. The AI is tough, they can be down right mean. There are times when they seem to be waiting for you,,, almost letting you catch up to them then they speed up, or worse you get by them only to have them put you in the guard rail at the next corner. I love it, the AI makes this game playable for me, I think they have done a sweet job here.


The game looks great. The graphics are sweet. There could have been more things going on in the world you were racing in. One example, is people, although not a part of the game it would be kinda cool to see 'em. Maybe I am just used to that,I was playing alot of GTA3. The cars look nice. Reflections are good and the overall appearance of the vehicles is crisp. You will love realistic dents,creases,and missing and smashed tail lights. The backgrounds and buildings are o.k. This could be an area for detail improvement. As I said earlier,with the power of Xbox, they could've added more detail and still kept that precious framerate.


There are an enormous number of tracks, and they are by artists that are actually good! When you start a race, its like you are listening to the radio. There are real radio personalaties that come on after songs and introduce songs and talk just like you were listening to a radio. If you dont like any of the songs, just rip your own songs to the HD and you can play them on PGR! The sound effects with the engines roaring seems like it could be improved, but everything else is very nice and deserves a 5


Suggestions:
Hurry and make a sequel!
