Sports Car GT places you behind the wheel of some of the highest performance sports cars in the world. Once you're qualified, you can build your way through a three-tiered GT Series as you race in the vicinity of speeds two hundred miles per hour and over.
Developed by Electronic Arts, Sports Car GT is split into one and two-player modes. Single player options include Season, Arcade and Time Trial modes. The Arcade mode takes the hassle out of racing by allowing a choice of course, number of laps, vehicle and other options; think of it as a quick racing fix. Time Trial is for those who like challenging themselves, giving armchair racers a number of tunable options as well as the opportunity to go it alone against various time records.
The Season mode has you starting with $50,000 and an entrance into the GT Qualifying Class. After buying your first car (of many), you can modify the vehicle's suspension, brakes, exhaust, engine, gearbox, aero-suspension and tires. To get the best out of your current vehicle, you can tune your car in such areas as ride height, transmission and downforce to get a perfect setup without having to spend a fortune. To qualify for the next race, you must finish in the top three positions...especially if you're planning to one day race in the GT-1 Class.
Two-player options consist of Head to Head matches, Pace Car and the Pink Slip mode. While Head to Head speaks for itself (it's you and another human opponent racing for the finish line), the Pace Car mode offers a computer-controlled opponent in which to duel, much like the aforementioned option. The Pink Slip mode features a "winner takes all" competition — you'll bet vehicles you've built while playing the Season mode. If you win, you'll obtain your friend's car; lose, however, and you can say goodbye to your hard-earned work.
You can also choose from fourteen instantly selectable high-performance sports machines including the BMW M3, Callaway C7 and C12 models, a Lister Storm, Mosler Raptor, Panoz GTR-1, Q9 and Esperante, the Porsche 911, 993 and 911-GT1, a Saleen S-281, SR and the Vector M-12. You can take these vehicles on courses such as Mosport Park, Road Atlanta, Sebring International Raceway, Desert Speedway, Laguna Sea Raceway and two fantasy courses that must be unlocked. ~ Brad Penniment, All Game Guide
