If you want a realistic driving experience with tons of races, cars and tracks, then Sega GT is for you. It's a supreme example of Sega's uber-software. If you don't like hard games, get frustrated easily, or hate realistic control, then forget about it. The graphics and sound are excellent while the control has its highs and lows, but the fun is undeniable! In my mind, Sega GT is the uber-racer which sets a new standard. I couldn't put it down until I finished every race!

If you like racing, and you like Sega, this is for you. If you thought Gran Turismo was good, you'll certainly soil yourself with Sega GT. Especially with the low price tag, Sega's latest gem can't, and shouldn't be ignored.

Learning curve and spotty cityscapes aside, Sega GT is the best driving simulation that Dreamcast fans could hope for. With such a diverse list of things to see and do and a collection of cars and options worthy of any local pot luck, how could you go wrong? A veritable mine of gaming gold, you owe it to yourself, your friends, and your Dreamcast to purchase Sega GT today.

Une bombe absolue dans le domaine de la course avec un jeu qui joue la carte du réalisme poussé sans faiblir visuellement, techniquement et dans le gameplay. La perfection automobile made in Sega.

Sega GT is currently the game to get for all Dreamcast owners looking to get a realistic and enjoyable racing experience on their console. Sega GT is to the Dreamcast what Gran Turismo was to the PlayStation. Currently the number one general racing title for the Dreamcast, console racing fans and car enthusiasts looking for something new should snatch this one up. Those looking to get into the racing genre should certainly give this one a shot, borrow or rent it. Be sure to play this game at least once and give it a couple of hours to get used to the controls. The graphics and depth are sure to please even the most critical racing fan.

Sega GT innehåller tillräckligt mycket fina och riktiga racingingredienser för att göra den mest kräsne bilsportsfanatiker lycklig. Tonvis med menyer och valmöjligheter, ett hundratal bilar (och möjligheten att bygga egna), varierade banor och spelformer. Och viktigast av allt, det är genomtänkt uppbyggt med en väl avvägd inlärnings- och tillvänjningskurva.

As Sega GT is currently the only game of its type for the Dreamcast this tends to make it a must-have title for anyone who wants the most realistic racing game on the market to date. The overall score has been marked down slightly due to the length of time the player will have to take just to get used to the controls, but be in no doubt that this is a truly entertaining and well designed piece of software. We won't worry about recommending this game to fans of realistic racing games, as we're sure the majority of you stopped reading this review five minutes ago and are heading to your nearest gaming store to pick up your copy. Good work Sega, keep this up and the Dreamcast's future will only get brighter.

Un GT para los 128 bits de Sega. A quien les gustó la obra maestra de Polyphony este juego no les defraudará en absoluto. A pesar de que su sistema de control es algo extraño y de no ser tan espectacular e innovador como se esperaba, es una gran opción para los que busquen un buen juego de coches. Pero, ¿por qué demonios han prescindido de los efectos de transparencia?

In 1997, Sony redefined the way racing games should be made with the release of the critically acclaimed Gran Turismo. The game not only offers a wide selection of cars, but it also manages to keep a somewhat realistic physics model that is accessible to even the most amateurish racing fan. Since then, competing game developers have been clamoring to release their own versions of Sony's influential racer, but so far few, if any, have succeeded. Sega GT attempts to capture some of Gran Turismo's formula for the Dreamcast, but it ultimately falls short due to poor control and an unintuitive interface.

Sega GT ist schon ein gutes Rennspiel, ähnlich wie bei Gran Turismo von Sony, arbeitet man sich hoch. Mehr Geld und eine Menge Autos sind die Belohnung. Die Grafik ist recht akzeptabel, jedoch ist das Fahrfeeling am Anfang noch etwas wackelig. Dies ändert sich aber sobald man seinen Flitzer getuned und tiefer gelegt hat. Etwas zu bemängeln ist allerdings wirklich, dass die Anzahl der Strecken nicht sonderlich hoch ausgefallen ist.

Although Sega GT has extra features a plenty, they still come nowhere near the level of comprehensiveness of Gran Turismo II. Also, factor in the game’s weak controls and there’s another blemish on its record. Sega GT is a nice start, but it still has a long ways to go to become the king of the hill.

DreamcastAll Game Guide
In all, Sega GT is a very solid first effort a "driving simulator," a genre Sony virtually created by themselves only a few years ago. While the arcade and simulation modes may turn off hardcore fans on both ends of that spectrum, those in the middle ground finally have a racer to call their own on the Dreamcast.

Let's get right to it -- Sega GT probably wouldn't even exist if Gran Turismo hadn't been made. It's safe to assume this because Sega GT is a straight-up carbon copy of the PlayStation best seller. Normally that would set alarms off in the game-reviewing part of my brain since originality is among the most important criteria by which I judge a game. Too many games nowadays either casually imitate popular titles or just blatantly rip them off. Sega GT falls somewhere in-between those two categories, but Sega is able to get away with it this time because this particular racing simulation was released on a platform on which a Gran Turismo game will never see the light of day. Sega knew that in order to get a Gran Turismo-like title on their console, they were going to have to get someone to build it from the ground up.

Czy Sega GT udało się zbliżyć poziomem do Gran Turismo? Mam mieszane uczucia co do tego tytułu. Z jednej strony wymagający i dający sporo frajdy model jazdy, dobra a momentami bardzo dobra oprawa graficzna. Do tego naprawdę spora ilość samochodów do sprawdzenia i długa kariera. Ale z drugiej strony słabo oddane uczucie prędkości zwłaszcza w słabszych autach i bardzo powoli rozkręcająca się rozgrywka mogą zniechęcić co bardziej niecierpliwych graczy. Ale ten kto mężnie przebrnie przez trudne początki, posmakuje naprawdę niezłego i satysfakcjonującego racera. Sega GT jest jak nieśmiała dziewczyna z sąsiedztwa. Na pierwszy rzut oka szara i nieciekawa, ale kiedy poznasz ją bliżej odkryjesz jej prawdziwy urok i spędzicie razem wiele sympatycznych wieczorów.

A marred effort, is the best appraisal one can give of Sega GT. For all its achievements, there's always something to be disappointed about, and in a genre as tightly packed as this, one ought not to concern one's self with the likes of this. Steer well clear, at least until the powers that be opt for a sequel.

Sie kennen das ja: Die Ampel springt auf Grün, die Motoren heulen auf und das Rennen beginnt mit Vollgas. Das zumindest bietet das als Arcade-Racer ausgewiesene Sega GT, der genretypische Fahrspaß ist bei der Umsetzung von Dreamcast auf PC leider irgendwo verloren gegangen. Das liegt zum größten Teil an der miserablen und bei aller Rennspielbegeisterung inakzeptablen Grafik - da sah selbst Need for Speed 2 besser aus. Ohne 3D-Beschleunigung und in der einzigen Auflösung von 640x480 Bildpunkten wirken Autos und Umgebung extrem grob, so dass man teilweise nur vermuten kann, was damit dargestellt werden soll.

Grafik und Sound sind insgesamt schludrig konvertiert. Schade um das eigentlich sehr spannende Spielprinzip und den guten Multiplayer-Modus für zwei Spieler (via Splitscreen an einem PC).

Le concurrent de Gran Turismo n'a pas su reprendre les points forts du succès des titres de Sony. Malgré des graphismes impeccables et un grand nombre de véhicules et de circuits, le parti pris de la simulation n'a pas été respecté et Sega GT s'en retrouve pénalisé au plus haut point. Il faut dire que l'attente a été longue, et les promesses d'un titre qui devait révolutionner le genre sur Dreamcast n'ont pas été tenues comme cela est souvent le cas. Déception, donc. Les accros verront tout de même là l'occasion de rouler dans les voitures de leurs rêves, mais pour la simulation un F355 Challenge fera meilleure figure.

My, how the mighty have fallen. One-time console giant Sega has been reduced to a second-string player this millennium. Now, even simple PC ports of the company's popular titles are, at best, third-string. Observe the flaming wreckage that is Sega GT.

I have one word for this game: OVERRATED. I don't know what Sega's problem is when it comes to racing games, but Sega GT is a major disappointment.
