The sole reason for Sega GT Online's existence, the online option, ends up dealing a crippling blow. Just getting online is a chore thanks to a mess of a menu system. Once online, finding a game is hard since you can't hang around in rooms to wait for a race to finish. When you are able to find a race, the experience is fun. I didn't have too many bouts with laggy performance, but it was present. The control scheme is very easy to use and follows the same set up as other racing games. The steering feels tight, with few steering problems popping up. As expected, mastery comes with experience. Until you get used to the steering, expect to lose lots of money on the repair charges. With a price point of 20 bucks, Sega GT Online isn't a complete loss. The option to play online, as well as the inclusion of the original game, makes it appealing to those on a budget.
