This game is basically similar to gen 1 (PS1) Gran Turismo. The cars are a bit more cartoony in appearance, and only Japanese manufacturers. But you'll bounce off walls and other cars without damage. Vibration in wiimote gives a little tactile feed back, which was unexpected. I have a hard plastic steering wheel and I think that makes steering very responsive, as compared to what others have said. I can do the power sliding and such with ease. My only real complaint is the low speed cars go 95 mph and the high speed are only going 125 mph (Supra, NSX) and even on the Intermediate "High Speed" level of racing (3rd of 4 levels), they are forcing you to race MiniVans! ARGH! It does make you a better driver, but still. Only road courses, but decent enough mixture to keep it interesting.
