Personal review

One of the best racing games of all time, Gran Turismo brings realistic racing home to the PSX. With over 160(!) cars to choose from, tons of upgrades, lot of races and even having to earn liscenses before you can drive, this is a game all racing fans can enjoy.

Official description

Gran Turismo combines arcade and simulation racing in one package. You can hit one of 11 tracks with a limited number of cars in the Arcade mode, while those with a preference for simulation will want to play the Gran Turismo mode. Choose from close to 150 real-world cars that look and drive like their real-world counterparts and hit the track. With Gran Turismo, arcade racers and simulation racers can stop the feuding and live in peace.
