5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Racing Game Yet for PS2!!! January 10, 2003
Pro Race Driver is definitely an above-average simulation-style auto racing game. It can best be compared with Gran Turismo 3 in relation to the number of circuits in the game (some of which must be unlocked), although Gran Turismo 3 definitely has the upper hand in terms of the photorealistic graphics and the sheer number of vehicles. However, whereas Gran Turismo 3 has literally HUNDREDS of races and race series, there is no connecting thread or storyline to the game, and this is where Pro Race Driver truly shines.
Pro Race Driver's Career Mode has the player enacting the racing life of Ryan McKane. The game's opening film shows a young Ryan and his older brother at a race and watching their near-legendary father die in a horrifying accident. Fifteen years later, Ryan gets his first shot at a big-time auto racing series. All this is done with nice cinematic cutscenes which sometimes includes cutscenes with rival drivers and team managers based upon the on-track racing actions.
With forty-two licensed cars as well as thirty-eight licensed circuits from around the world, Ryan will have A LOT to overcome (including - and perhaps ESPECIALLY - his own ego) to become a legendary race car driver in his own right, surpassing even the racing community's high expectations of his deceased father. Unfortunately, Pro Race Driver does not include qualifying (this is the one major downfall of the game), so the player is stuck with wherever she or he is placed on the starting grid by the CPU.
Career Mode operates on the tier system. Tier 1 race series use the slowest cars in the game, whereas higher-tier race series use faster and more powerful cars. Again, there are certainly not nearly as many cars as in Gran Turismo 3, but Pro Race Driver does offer a good variety of cars nonetheless.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gran Turismo still better by far February 10, 2003
By A Customer
This game is well done, but do not believe those who say that it is the "next coming" of Gran Turismo 3. It most certainly is not. The handling of the cars in PRD is not realistic at all, even by game or sim standards. Codemasters says that actual race drivers tested the game and provided input; I see no evidence of that whatsoever. The display seems to be very low-resolution. Everything looks blurred. I have a high-definition TV and use a component video cable. GT3 looks fantastic; I can read everything including the smallest letters on the instrument panel and in the "GT Auto" screen. On PRD, my eyes hurt after 30 minutes of play. GT3 using the single composite video cable still has better resolution than PRD with any cable. What does Polyphony know that Codemasters doesn't?!?
The track map display on PRD is completely useless. The straights look jagged, chicanes aren't shown (perhaps by a single pixel to the side of the straight), the pit lanes aren't shown, the map rotates (some may like that; I don't), and the car indicators are so huge compared to the track (especially the player's car) that when you're near a corner you can't see any of the map because of the huge red dot. The manual says that your crew will set their opinion of the best settings for the car, but you can change them. In fact, every race with every car starts with the exact same "middle" settings. Adjusting the settings doesn't make as much difference as it should, but that goes back to the unrealistic handling. The cheat codes, for which you must pay, are nothing special either.
If you've never played a racing game on PS1 or PS2 (or Atari 2600), you may like this game. I think it was a complete waste of [$$$]plus shipping plus [$$$] for the cheat codes. Better off to buy GT3, or, if you already have it, buy another memory card and start a new game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 26, 2002
The worst after so many delays I was angry.IGN's review gave such an impression but turned out to be false.The graphics are terrible(looks like GT1), the handling awful(GT1 handles better).They had the idea to even compare it with GT3 that is a big insult.People do not buy this game save your money or wait for a price drop and buy it used.This game had so much potential and they ruined it, they should have handed it over to the GT3 team to finish the product.I would not have given it any stars but the system won't accept it.These game developers need to realise that GT3 is the benchmark of all racing games and if it isn't up to that standard don't steal people's hard earned money marketing shoddy products.
I am sorry the truth is the truth GRAN TURISM LIVES FOREVER.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only fair... April 15, 2003
By east
This game is ok, but doesn't come close to Gran Turismo 3. My major complaint is the handling of the cars. It's very difficult to get a car to have really good grip, even at maximum downforce. A lot of times it's like driving on ice. Ok, maybe I'm exagerrating a little, but the handling is nothing like GT3, and I actually have gotten quite frustrated numerous times. And this is my experience from using the Logitech wheel, not a standard PS2 controller.
Other complaints: There is no rear view mirror (only a red arrow pointing backwards to where the car behind you is), no qualifying, no timer telling you how far behind (or ahead) other cars are while racing, and the series races are only 3-5 laps. Starting from the rear (which is usually where the CPU puts you), it can be tough to catch up in only 3 laps. Maybe it's better at the Lola World Championship level, but I wouldn't know; I still haven't been able to get there! But instead of being motivated by the challenge, I'm more frustrated and annoyed by the game's faults and shortcomings. By the way, it's not because I'm a bad driver either; with the Logitech wheel, plenty of computer racing experience, and a good bit of real world racing experience, I consider myself an above average racer, and I'm still frustrated.
On the plus side, the graphics are good, the replays are cool, and the cars have great sounds, different for each vehicle. Having so many great tracks is also a strong point for this game.
But overall, I think I'll spend a lot more of my "driving time" on GT3 rather than Pro Race Driver.
