A underrated game, for 4.99, you probably won't find a longer game. 285 hours and I still haven't obtained everything.

Basically a crappy Volkswagon advertisement. It sat on the shelf at a Gamestop until corporate dropped the price to a penny which meant it was supposed to be thrown away. It's not even worth that one penny. The graphics aren't that awful but absolutely everything else is uninspired, buggy, and lacking. Play Gran Turismo instead.

A cheap and cheerful arcade racing game based on an old iteration of the chrome engine (Call of Juarez etc.) The graphics are not the best by today's standards but the game doesn't cost much these days either. The cars are all Volkswagons, from the early eighties Golf GTi to late 90's concept, old and new Beetles are included and even the VW Camper. You can customise most of the parts, by winning races and spending your prize money, but this is not a sim. Most customisations make very little difference to performance unless they boost the BHP. It takes some practice to consistently win events and opponents are challenging but a bit stupidly rough, bashing you off the track if they can. A real bonus in a game like this is the availabilty of a cockpit view, making it more realistic and challenging. It's fun, works with a Logitech wheel, and it took me 25 hours to complete so the value can't be questioned. Worth a try if you're stuck for some racing action.

GTI Racing is a game where you race variants of the VW vehicles that's GTI, from the Bettle to Golf, and more. There are variety of courses, but some are simply running the same course in reverse, or have a slightly variant route. You can also spend some of your earnings to improve your vehicle in various ways, from improved ECM to racing tires, from improved exhaust to turbocharger. This is an arcade racer, where the idea is not to make mistakes and still go fast. Graphics are decent, but that's all. It's an arcade racer, and a budget title. You can find better racing games cheaper.
