I. INTRODUCTION
=================================================================

I just whipped up this Mini-Guide that's just for the License Tests of 
Gran Turismo 2. Since I've gotten TONS of e-mail asking me to do so, I 
decided, "Why not?" I basically took this out of my GT2 FAQ, and made a 
Mini-Guide for those looking for a straight solution to their License 
Tests problems. So, here it is.


-----------------------------------
Here's my review of Gran Turismo 2:
-----------------------------------

You wanna know somethin'? After I beat the first Gran Turismo, I never, 
EVER, thought that there would be a racing game that would ever top it. 
At first I thought that R4 might be the one, but alas, it was just an 
arcade racer, and, while insanely fun, didn't quite live up to the Gran 
Turismo name and dynasty. Well, after playing Gran Turismo 2 for well 
over 80 hours total, I'd have to say that Gran Turismo is the racing 
game of the millenium, and has left the original GT in it's dust. Let's 
break GT2 down into the most important aspects of a game, shall we?

-----------------
GRAPHICS - 9/10: 
-----------------
The visuals in GT 2 are outstanding to say the least. Forget what you 
may have heard from others who tell you "How much better looking GT1 
was." Well this is B.S. Even though there wasn't a substantial leap in 
graphics, GT2 is still the best looking racing game on the 
market...well, except for maybe R4. :) And despite what you may have 
heard, I have yet to experience ANY slowdown whatsoever.

-----------------
SOUND - 10/10
-----------------
The sound effects in GT2 are still as amazing as ever. If you thought 
that the car sounds from GT1 couldn't get any better, well, you were 
wrong. My only complaint is that many of the cars sound alike, but that 
really doesn't matter much, since you get so caught up in the AMAZING 
gameplay. 

The soundtrack for GT2 is equally amazing. But, awesome as it is, I'd 
give the soundtrack a 8/10, mainly because the game only plays about 
four different songs while racing, and they do get repetitive after a 
while.

-----------------
GAMEPLAY - 10/10
-----------------
Man this game is sweet! It plays even better than GT1, if you can 
beleive it. Every single one of the cars in the game handle differently, 
and have their own unique Pros and Cons. FR cars take turns better than 
the other cars, but they tend to over-steer. 4WD cars are good overall, 
while FF cars tend to under-steer, and so on. 

The sheer depth of GT2 is unparralled. With over 500 cars, at least 40 
hours of gameplay (trust me on this one), AND rally racing, this baby 
will keep you playing for weeks on end, and then some. I guarentee that 
I'll still be playing this sucker a year from now.

-------------------
CONTROL - 10/10
-------------------
Manuvering the vehicles in GT2 is as easy as ever, and since they handle 
realistically, there's plenty of variety within these two discs. Using 
the Dual-Shock is the best way to go, and there is NO alternative that 
will allow you such precision on the track. Some of my gripes are that 
some of the FR cars spin out too easily *cough, Viper, cough*, and it's 
irritating, but it's not a control issue; it's just how the game plays: 
Well.

------------------
REPLAY - 10/10
------------------
Like I said earlier in the review, I GUARENTEE I'll be playing GT2 a 
year from now, and I mean it. After playing for over 80 hours, I'm only 
21 % done with the game. Yep, I'll take a while...

------------------
OVERALL - 10/10
------------------
This is the greatest racing game of all time, and rightfully so. It's 
the equivilant to the Autobahn; Huge, fast, and the king of the 
road(s).

Buy it.
