Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Excellent AI, controls and sound design combine their respective strengths to make a package that’s stronger than the sum of its parts. An excellent game by any standards, Sega GT 2002‘s only downsides are that the graphics aren’t quite as good as they could be, and that it offers fewer courses than we’d wish for. The usual fixtures of a GT racer are here, including the obsessive need to upgrade your car, but an added mix of maintenance costs and used parts slows the pace when compared to contemporaries. Whether this is a problem depends on your patience, as the opening stretch can be laborious, but your staying power will pay off when you ride the many high-end licensed vehicles up for grabs at the dealer. Pretty much alone in its class on the Xbox, Sega GT 2002‘s universal ranking won’t dethrone the reigning champ, but it’s certainly flexed its muscles and proven that it deserves to run second place close enough to draft the leader.

This is a game for racing simulation fans, for Sega GT fans, and for anyone who likes Gran Turismo. There are just enough extras and different modes to really make this game a must-have. Wait, let me just add that you may like Gran Turismo, but you will love Sega GT 2002.

Sega GT 2002 is no Gran Turismo but it definitely will fill in nicely for Xbox owners who want that deep racing sim experience on the most powerful console around. The car collection is interesting and meant to appeal to everybody from street racing fans to grease monkeys to suburbanites. There's a little something for everybody here but not enough of the cars you do like.

All in all, whilst Sega GT 2002 isn't an example of the racing sublime, it is a fun and solid effort, which shines with raw driving enjoyment, but sadly lets itself down in a few niggling ways. It's a slow game, and if you can stand the slow progress you'll be rewarded with many hours of rewarding action, as well as some good AI and solid visuals.

Sega GT 2002 isn't perfect, but it is a stellar racing game. I'd have to say that overall, it is the longest racing game available for Xbox. Length is very important to me, and I know that it's important to many of our readers, so rest assured, this is not a beat-it-in-a-weekend kind of game. You could probably conquer most of the Chronicle mode in that amount of time, but don't even think about beating the GT mode that quickly! It won't happen, period. For me, that's great. With as busy as I am, I know that Christmas will come and go before I've done everything there is to do in this game.

Aun así, sus variados modos de juego, su renovado control, y los preciosos gráficos seguro que te atraerán a la primera, si eres fan de la velocidad es compra segura, no te defraudará, si eres un jugador casual merece la pena que lo pruebes, otro buen juego de velocidad en Xbox.

Released for the Dreamcast in 2000, the original Sega GT was a grand touring game that clearly borrowed Gran Turismo's winning formula, albeit without meeting the same success as Sony's venerable racing franchise. The game had great graphics, a respectable number of licensed cars, as well as a variety of tracks, but some sloppy controls, a poor interface, and an unintuitive car-creation tool kept Sega GT from being more than just a run-of-the-mill driving game. Unphased by the cool reception, developer Wow Entertainment is taking another shot at racing glory with Sega GT 2002 for the Xbox, and the improvements are quite evident. The control is now precise, the interface is slick, and the inclusion of classic cars is a welcomed addition to this sequel. Sega GT 2002's only real issue is a relative lack of racetracks, but the game has enough depth to overcome that problem.

Wer ein authentisches Rennspiel sucht mit dem man viele Stunden verbringen kann, und dem die Grafik nicht so wichtig ist kann ohne Bedenken zugreifen, denn bei diesem Titel bleibt es garantiert nicht beim einmaligen durchspielen, da es dafür viel zu viele Wagen gibt, die man noch tunen und natürlich fahren muss. Freunde von Multiplayer-sessions sollten sich aber doch lieber nach anderen Titeln umsehen, da SEGA GT in dieser Richtung keinerlei Ambitionen hat.

Rallisport Challenge is much more specialized, and, arguably, better executed, but Sega GT 2002's experience is much more comprehensive. It'll take you about an hour to get into the groove of the game's controls, but once you're in, it's smooth sailing. It's ultimately a game that stands strong on its own merits, and is built with an impressive level of polish to boot. Let's hope it's only the start of something great.

Over het algemeen is Sega GT2002 een goed spel dat jammer genoeg wat tussen 2 stoelen valt. Enerzijds is de besturing meer arcadegericht waardoor Gran Turismo fans ontgoocheld zullen zijn. Anderzijds is de arcadebesturing dan weer niet "arcade-achtig" genoeg waardoor enthousiasten van arcaderacers zich hard zullen moeten aanpassen. Kun je echter met de juiste verwachtingen naar dit spel kijken en neem je middelmatige muziek erbij, dan kan je met een gerust hart dit spel aan je collectie toevoegen.

Une excellente simulation du point de vue du gameplay, cela ne fait aucun doute. Si vous possédez une Xbox et que vous recherchez un titre rempli de voitures prestigieuses et soutenu pas une gameplay réaliste, mais que vous n'aimez pas le Rally, foncez. Ce qui est franchement dommage et même limite exaspérant, c'est que Sega n'ait pas profité de ce débarquement sur Xbox pour en exploiter vraiment le potentiel. Du coup, la note s'en ressent mais que voulez-vous, il faut bien garder de la marge pour le prochain titre qui viendra combler ce manque.

Ich erinnere mich noch sehr gut an die vielen Tage, an denen ich meine Gran Turismo 3-Garage mit mehr als 70 Fahrzeugen gefüllt habe. Selbst Rennen, die stur über eine Stunde nur im Kreis führten, wurden von mir bestritten, nur damit ich anschließend einen neuen Renner im Stall hatte. Leider will diese Motivation bei Sega GT 2002 nicht so richtig aufkommen. Ob dies nun an der grafischen Berg- und Talfahrt liegt, oder aber einfach an den sich immer wiederholenden Strecken, ist fraglich. Aber vor allem die starke Konkurrenz in Form von Project Gotham Racing und RalliSport Challenge macht es schwer, eine uneingeschränkte Kaufempfehlung auszusprechen. Wer aber dennoch neue Rennspiel-Herausforderungen braucht, der sollte wenigsten eine Probefahrt beim Softwarehändler seines Vertrauens machen.

Sega GT 2002 aspires to the grandeur of the Gran Turismo series for the Xbox, mixing sim and arcade elements to produce a racing game that both hardcore and amateur speedsters can enjoy. Car enthusiasts can appreciate the vast assortment of vehicles. For the real buffs, however, the game features options to fix your car for an even faster ride: Adjust the weight, add a muffler, or sport racing tires to blow away the competition. Enhancements to cars make a difference in the controls, plus you can feel when the tires and brakes are wearing down, which adds to the game's authenticity. Sega GT 2002 is nicely tuned with both a solid graphic engine and a smooth, idling soundtrack, but not everything is good under the hood. After successfully finishing the B License test, competitions become extremely unforgiving for unmodified cars.

Här krävs en ängels tålamod för att komma någon vart. Jag kan tyvärr inte säga att man belönas särskilt väl för sitt tålamod, så lägg hellre tiden och pengarna på något annat.

Sega GT 2002 serves it purpose of delivering hyper-realistic racing action, but that style of play probably peaked about ten years ago.
