It took me about an hour to get used to the handling of the game. The game moves so fast! The sense of speed is acute. The cars fly around the track impossibly close to each other. The XBOX graphics show the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in all its glory. I started out driving the car in chase camera mode. After a half hour, I switched to cockpit camera... what a rush! The game works terrific from the drivers seat; other racing games could learn a lot from Indy's cockpit mode. It really makes it much more personal when you can sit in the cockpit. The cockpit view works because your audible spotter is accurate and helpful. I learned to trust my spotter completely and he hasn't failed me yet. He'll shout out "High, High, Still There... Clear!"
This game works great on the XBOX with the Controller S. The triggers make for reactive gas and break pedals. The left thumbstick is the steering wheel, while the right thumbstick is the gear shifter. You use the A, B, X, Y buttons for the weight jacker (ability to balance out car handling during racing) and fuel-to-air ratio (like turbo boost).
This game has so much speed it feels like an arcade racer, but the realism makes it a nice console sim. You adjust the car for eight different mechanical components. You can plan you fuel strategy to beat the competition. Use yellow flags to break the pit window in your favor. Conserve fuel and save your equipment by drafting and running at lower revs. It really works, and you can sometimes outsmart the AI drivers with strategy.
Of course there are the crashes. The physics model is good though tweaked a little to bring more fantastic crashes. Cars flip, wings break off, tires and suspension smash in. If your engine or electronics are damaged in a crash you may be out of the race.
I've waited for this game for a long time, and now I can say I'm "Back Home Again in Indiana" driving the Indy 500.

5.0 out of 5 stars IndyCar Series October 19, 2003
This title is somewhat unique for Codemasters because of its previous efforts such as Colin McRae Rally and Pro Race Driver. After all, it's now entering a market full of Rally and GT racers. Because of this, it's hard to directly compare the game to that of any particular competitor, except the fact that IndyCar series is rather similar to NASCAR -- albeit faster and without all the paint swapping and helmet-throwing.
As it's titled IndyCar series, the game includes all the tracks and most of the drivers you'd find in the Indy Racing League (IRL). You won't find any road courses or street courses here. It's all ovals, and they are a subset of the same set of ovals you'll find in NASCAR titles. Of course, you'll find the Indy 500, in all its glory, with a full 33-car field and even the four lap-qualifying format and Bump Day.
However, there are parts in the game which need to be improved. The lack of USB wheel support and mirrors are two. The field of view from in-car is rather narrow, and I've observed some bizarre pitting strategy by the AI (such as not pitting until two laps after the pits are open during caution - if you're going to pit, you pit at the first available opportunity under caution). The fact that your crew chief doesn't ever seem to change his suggested pit strategy based upon your actual stops is another nuisance, but one you can safely ignore. Although the game itself doesn't break much new ground as a racing title, the fact is that what it DOES do, it does very well. Indy Racing is VERY well represented in this title.
Motorsportgaming would highly recommend this game to all racing fans, especially owners of the Nascar series. The gameplay is very believable with almost every real-life aspect of the sport reproduced for your pleasure. The challenge level is great, the dicing through traffic is adrenalin inducing.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXACTLY WHAT IT SHOULD BE!! June 30, 2003
If you are an IndyCar series fan, an open wheel fan, or just an Indy 500 fan..get this game. Having been to the last 15 500's at the speedway, I longed for the day when I could take an IRL driver around the speedway! And the time is now. Graphics are good, gameplay is good and the AI is tough to beat. I own F1 2001 for the xbox, and this is AS GOOD as that title. Both are great games... GO HELIO!!
