Get behind the wheel of one of the most worlds most prestigious cars, the F355 Ferrari, in this conversion of Sega's arcade game.

F355 features a number of game modes: the Arcade mode which is the same as the checkpoint arcade version; Championship mode where you race a total of 6 races for the combined highest score; Single play which is the same as Arcade mode but with no time limit; Versus play with a two player split screen; and Network Race where you can connect to the Internet and race a time attack against other players ghost cars.

The courses that are available to race on are Motegi, short and long versions of Suzuka, Monza, Sugo, Long Beach, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Nurburgring (GP track), Laguna Seca, Sepang, and Fiorano (Ferrari's test track).

The game features 3 levels of difficulty. There are also four Assist functions - Stability Control for cornering, Traction Control from the engine to the tires, Anti Lock Brake System to keep the tires from locking during braking and Intelligent Brake System for braking before corners so beginners can concentrate on steering.

You can also connect to the Internet and register your driver data.
