Gran Turismo 2 Preview

More Game Info (Print This Article)



Scheduled release date:

January 3, 2000

  We are getting closer to the release of Gran Turismo 2 but not much information is popping up about the upcoming title. We do have some confirmations and updates, but Sony is waiting to reveal its works at the E3 game show.

   Now you think that Gran Turismo was hard, wait to see for what Sony got in this sequel. They are promising smarter computer cars and 60 license tests for you to beat. Personally, no matter how much I tried, I just couldn't get the last license in Gran Turismo and I don't think I will in the next version. This level of difficulty makes you concentrate on the game and every corner that you make.

   The number of cars is still known to be 400 but this time around we should see some really sporty cars that are similar to the ones in the Need for Speed titles. There is a lot of hype going around that the new graphics and physics engine is probably the best yet seen in the whole Playstation industry. When we get up to the speeds of 150 miles per hour in the current racers, it does not feel like 150 at all. This could all change in Gran Turismo 2 because Sony stated that the original game used up only about 75 percent of Playstation's power so there was a lot of room for them to make the game better and faster.

   It was confirmed that the game supports PocketStation which will enable you to trade cars that are saved. There isn't much information about the tracks, but we know that the title will feature dirt tracks and the there will be a total of 20 tracks available to race on.
