Something went horribly wrong here. GT seems to be suffering from an identity crisis. The controls are somehow painfully unresponsive, and not at all forgiving. Not to mention the rather poor graphics which have that cell shaded look, but feels so badly out of place. Sure there is a pretty decent selection of cars, but ultimately not a lot of what you would really want to drive. The tracks and backgrounds are pretty bland also. This entry into what looks like should have been competition with Bran Tourismo or Forza Motor Sport 2, fails so badly, that it's hardly worth checking my spelling. Obviously they wanted a sim style racing game, but the depth ends with that intention. Maybe lets just call it a 1st generation Wii flop, and hopefully something good will come with the inevitable sequel.
I can't tell what this game is suppose to be like. The graphics are similar to games that use cel-animation, but if thats the case, it doesn't work well. This game is pretty low, but not entirely bad.
There are many different cars in the game. With the visual approach they used, it makes them all look equally terrible. There are many events you can participate on, and there is plenty to do if you can stand all the irritating sounds that come out of this game.
On the plus side, I found the steering to be pretty smooth. I won about every race that I was in after the first one. And drifting this game was kind of cool too I guess.
Nothing much here to play. Overall, I'd probably just pass on this title, and try one of the other racing games for the Wit.
while the turning style is interesting on the Wii, I found it unresponsive; I couldn't even counter steer with any accuracy. You won't find any deep gameplay, as the driving model essentially consists of holding the 2 button and turning the wiimote as you've probably seen before. I never had to worry much about making a turn in anything below 4th gear, almost regardless of degree.
This game fails in every aspect of what a video game should be. The graphics could only be called impressive on a PS1, as they are full of blurry, bland textures and poorly detailed cars. It looked like the developers were attempting to give the game a cell-shaded look and feel, but it obviously failed, as everything just looks plain.
GT Pro has a handful of licensed cars to choose from, but the only customization available is color.
