Back of Box:
    Obsessively technical. Meticulously refined. Viciously fast. A fervent arcade mode with blinding speeds. A passionately customizable simulation mode. You've never seen anything this suped-up.

    Photo-realistic graphics blur the line between game and reality

    Precise calculated physics designed according to each car's real-life specifications

    Star-stunned soundtrack featuring original songs and remixes

    Opponent racers come to life with "Emotion" physics

From uk.playstation.com:
    The Gran Turismo name needs no explanation. Its original PlayStation formats have redefined the racing genre, so it's no wonder that GT3 has been one of the most eagerly awaited PlayStation 2 releases. With its exclusive selection of cars and new track additions, the PlayStation 2 version is further enhanced by a specially created force feedback steering wheel, the GT Force Logitech. Driving has never looked or felt so real!

    But what else can you expect from Gran Turismo on PS2? How about an exclusive selection of 150 cars from 40 different international manufacturers to choose from? Once your selection is made, it's time to test your tyres on a range of tracks including the much feted Monte Carlo City track as well as tracks in Japan. But perhaps it's the stunning realism of this game that will really blow you away - you'll find it hard to keep your eyes on the road when your surroundings and fellow competitors and their vehicles look so true to life. Even the engine sounds have been enhanced for GT3. The game also features i.LINK compatibility for up to 6 players.
