Really Bad

A pile of poo and its name is Ferrari Challenge

I love racing games so I put aside the bad reviews and ordered it. I retrieved it from the mail box at 4:30 this afternoon and put it back in the mail box by 8:00 pm This feels like a NFS game just with Ferrari's instead of import tuners. The graphics were lacking with lots of AA issues and clipping. The limited viewpoints hurt as did the singular vehicle choice to start with. I appreciate "simulators" but this game just fails on so many levels. Also the menus could have been done a lot better than they were. Waited four days to get this in the mail and I can't wait to get rid of it now!!!

Trofeo Schmofeo....

Being a fan of all things Driving Simulation, I would expect much more from Playstation and Activision. This is more like a long boring version of Need for Speed. Same handling concepts. Same visual graphics. It's just Ferrari this time. The races in challenge mode were just too long. 15 minutes or 10 laps. and If you don't come in first, don't plan on ever catching up to that place. Once the first place driver got some headway, I was rarely able to catch up to him in time to overtake him. I put this game back into the sleeve and sent it back out three days after recieving it. Trofeo.... Schmofeo.. eNuff said.

I ordered this game on gamefly before it came out. The day it was released, I started reading all the negative reviews and low ratings on gamefly and immediately regretted ordering it, but it was too late. (Might I add, I love racing simulators and I have a ps3, with playseat, g25 logitech wheel and a pretty major sound equipment sitting right in front of 1080p 42" lcd.) Right when I started the game, I immediately noticed not so great graphics, but after a few laps of the tutorial runs, I was addicted. The details on correction and making you a better driver is super accurate. You get your details on throttle response, apex control, braking and holding the corner right after the tutorial lap. The sound is great as well, the thumping of backfire from downshifts with the pedal shifters is awesome. Highly recommend it.
