Gran Turismo 3 (thing)
Return to Gran Turismo 3 (thing)
Gran Turismo 3 is the latest in the line of racing simulations from Sony for the Playstation 2 platform. It's another instant classic and expands on the tried and true formula of the first and second games.
The game has the standard arcade mode offering (of course) sweet two-player action. But the real jewel is the simulation mode, where a player starts with a set amount of money and must purchase a car from over 200 available. You compete in single races, championships and series races to earn more and more cash to build and tune your roster of high-performance vehicles.
Sony got licenses from tons of car manufacturers for the game, so you'll be able to smash speed records with a tweaked out Dodge Viper or power slide corners with a Subaru Impreza WRX. If you don't own this game, go buy it. If you don't own a Playstation 2, go buy one - then buy this game!
