Intro/Graphics: If you love old cars (or just cars) and challenging racing, this is for you. This game is from 2005, so the graphics are outdated, although that doesn't bother me. I find the tracks and landscape suffer the most, but the cars themselves look great! The lighting is particularly good on the cars and everywhere else. You can race anytime of day, and night races are fun (I always end up breaking a headlight tho *oops*). Though, you cannot race in the rain unlike GTR2, however this is okay because driving these 60s/70s cars in the rain would be a struggle.
Controls/Difficulty: I got this game a long time ago before I was even old enough to fit in a driver's seat (much to the disdain of the elder British lads that I wrecked in multiplayer long ago), but I enjoyed it oh so much. If you are playing it with a keyboard, good luck racing on professional or semi-pro mode. With a keyboard, you pretty much need traction control, automatic shifting, and anti-lock brakes, therefore you can only be competitive on amateur difficulty. If you have a wheel and pedals and a shifter, then it'll be awesome, especially if you have a clutch pedal and H shifter. There's really no need to play on novice or beginner difficulty unless you really are new to racing games or are just a young kid. (Fun fact: it took me until this year to learn how to pit, however you won't really need to until the endurance races)
Physics/Realism: The driving physics are rather good. The crashes are very unrealistic however and it's very easy to flip your car and roll about five times before landing on your roof (and still being able to drive afterwards). Glitches are pretty fun, as well.
Gameplay: You go through a career mode where you race from 2 to 8 circuits per event and accumulate points and win a trophy if you finish between first and third in points at the end. You start with a Mini and a Lotus Cortina and race up to faster cars (Mustang, Elan, Corvette, Pantera, 911... etc.) by either winning them or earning enough credits to buy new (old) cars. You also unlock more tracks along the way. I haven't played multiplayer in such a long time, but back in the day I used to joyride in my Ford Falcon on the grass & dirt (on purpose) at Donington Park. The Europeans loved me.
You can drive (wreck) cars that are now worth millions!
