A few weeks ago I managed to pickup a 4-5 year old version of Gran Turismo 3 for the Playstation 2. This game comes close to it from the game idea point of view but as a low spec version.

Graphics are that of what you are used to from an Amusement arcade 4-5 years ago, but let that not fool you the game idea is still brilliant.

The game fun is on the same level as "Excite Truck". The difference is that "Excite Truck" is really more a fun focused car racing game with stunt effects, while GT Pro Series is more like the original arcade racing game type (no stunts).

I was positively surprised to see that the steering wheel that comes with it is actually very sturdy (strong) and usable.

An interesting fact is also that the environment (streets, bridges etc) looks very similar to Japan, so from that point its very real.

What makes this game very playable is the fact that you really have all kind of levels (Beginner to Pro) and many varieties of cars to choose from. A speciality of the game is the little 660cc engine type 1 person mini transporter that you also see still in big towns like Tokyo.

The game does impressively teach you why the starting position is so important and how you loose important time already during the first 30 seconds which you have to fight back inch by inch during the rounds.

The sunlight reflections and shadows are features which make the scenarios more real and add an (un)certain factor to it.

The drifting effect seemed to much at first but once you play it you realize how to use it ;-)

I like the game idea of this game (and Gran Turismo) where you have to win several races to master the next higher level and do a driving license in advance.

To extremes to make my family happy...

Sure the graphics are not PS3 crisp and this is a repackage of the game in general rushed for launch but we are enjoying it.

I have seen a number of negative reviews about this game and yes it does have it's issues. Not being able to save anymore than one person's data is a pain (ok maybe I missed something) if you are trying multiplayer.

In spite of it's rushed to market shortcomings the game has kept us entertained. The addition of the racing wheel was a nice touch.

If it were stolen or scratched I would consider buying it again.

As others have mentioned, this is sort of a "Gran Turismo Lite". It's not as detailed or realistic as the GT games, but that's still really the best comparison. You get to choose from real world vehicles and tune them to a very limited degree - though with some of the tuning options it's not readily apparent what effect the different parts actually have.

The graphics are good and there's an excellent sense of speed. No, they're not "realistic", but it's the Wii. Comparing a Wii game to something on a much more powerful system isn't useful or instructive. The graphics have a cel-shaded look which is appealing. The environments look good. I have no problem becoming immersed in the gameplay, so to me the graphics are just fine.

You get only 10 tracks, plus reverse versions. Not a lot, but they're all excellent, technical courses and are a blast to drive, and they all feel totally different in reverse. The wheel that comes with the game is actually pretty good. It's heavier than the Nintendo wheel and I like the feel of it. Of course it's not the same as an actual racing wheel, but I still like using it.

So, while this game has a facade of racing real cars, what you actually get is a sweet spot somewhere between arcade and simulation, more on the arcade end, for sure. There are no shortcuts, jumps, boosts or powerups. If you're having trouble winning a cup you likely need to choose a different car and then work on your racing line. As others have said the racing is drift-oriented, which is fine. Even if you choose "race" handling, you'll still drift to some degree. But that's what makes the game fun. Drifting perfectly around a hairpin and undercutting several other cars is thrilling and addicting.

Nintendo Wii is not known for realistic driving games, graphics or simple controllers. If you are a Forza or Gran Turismo fan, you will think this game, graphics and having to play with your tired arms holding up the Wii Remote steering wheel is not worth it. If you can get this game under $20, give it a chance and it's actually a good game if you like driving/racing games for your Wii or WiiU.
Unlike the typical Wii racing games, this game is not another Mario Kart clone or some bumper car or police chase game. It is a straight up auto racing game with real cars such as the Nissan Skyline GTR, Toyota Supra, Honda NSX. etc, which begins as a small choice to choose from, but increases as you progress through the game. This also applies to new tuning parts. You do not buy them, but are rewarded to you as you win and progress. There are different race modes, including time-trial, drift race, single race and championship races. You can choose different driver views using the - button on the Wii Remote, including forward views, hood and full screen view(which I prefer as it is most like being in the car and easier to control).
The cell-shaded graphics are okay. My only issue with the game is the controller. The Wii Remote controller with steering wheel may be somewhat fun to use, but it is not easy to control and can be tiring to hold up. The game is playable and takes some practice using the Wii remote wheel, but why couldn't this game been programmed to also use the Wii classic or Pro controllers? It would of been much better.
So, it may not be Forza or Gran Turismo, but at least it's something for the Wii.
