About This Game

Return to the Days Of Thunder

The golden age of motor sports has returned. Experience one of the world’s most exciting racing series in GT LEGENDS, including the legendary touring cars of the 60′s and 70′s. Collect more then 90 original FIA GTC-TC team vehicles and demonstrate your driving skill on real European racetracks.

GT Legends was announced summer 2005 and presented to media with a response that was overwhelming. The only concern expressed by the media present at the time was that they were previously blown away by GTR, and now they wanted to rate GT Legends even higher!

GT Legends keeps the authentic driving experience from GTR and takes the game play to a new level with a career mode. Enjoy the historic GT cars with vehicles like Ford Mustang, Shelby Cobra, Corvette, Jaguar, Lotus, TVR and other goodies from the 60’s and 70’s.

Haven't played much but i was really excited to review this.

Such a good game, a really old game i believe it was released in 2005 (Don't quote me on that but i'm sure i read it somewhere) Deffo worth the purchase, i picked my copy up for a quid at 90% off during a sale. I used my steering wheel and pedals, although you will need an advanced wheel-pedal-gearbox controller for this, unforchantly i do not have a gearbox but i made do. Really good game. 8/10.

Good:

; Graphics
; Gameplay
; Racing
; Simulator
; Intense
; Campaign
; Multiplayer

Bad:

; Cannot cheat without being disqualifed :(
; Not that many people know about this game
; The menu can be a pain in the ♥♥♥♥, exit and alt + f4 don't work for me.
; Can get a little repetative which leads to boring (although most racing games do that)

8/10 Would play again.

Game is perfect, no other word for it. It has everything going for it, there's not 1 bad thing about this game.

1) Cockpit view is amazing.

2) Night time racing is awesome.

3) Night time racing in a convertible with cockpit view is one of the best experiences i've had in a racing game.

4) Night time racing in a black Chevrolet Corvette in cockpit view (windscreen is incredibly narrow) is absolute boss. Unbelievably good.

5) The endurance races (20/60 laps) don't feel like endurance races because every second is great.

5) The handling is perfect. The cars don't feel like a yacht, but you can't just throw them around either. It is balanced perfectly.

6) Moving up in cars is great. Going from a Lotus Cortina, to a Ford Mustang, to a Chevrolet Corvette, to a Ford GT is great. The speed difference is notable in each jump, and the engine noises, especially from Cortina to Mustang, is awesome.

7) Physics are crazy. You can easily flip or roll the car, but that adds to the fun.

8) No popularity simulator single player crap like most modern racing games have, just simple trophies.

9) Great selection of cars and tracks.

If you have a wheel, a pedal set with clutch, and an H shifter, you'll have plenty of fun with it. Use the heel and toe technic, push to the metal. Wide range of vehicles, and tracks. Pretty decent graphics for the time, the physics is good in my opinion. My only complain is the force feedback which is very weak. I recommend it to beginers too, who just started sim racing. If you are into classic cars it is a MUST HAVE!

You will need a controller or preferably a wheel for this, but it is spot on. It may look old but the feel and handling of each car feels authentic. Plus, if you go to NoGripRacing.com or another mod website you can download literally HUNDREDS of new tracks for this game. Nothing beats throwing a Pantera around the Nordschlief or a Porsche LeMans car around the Targa Floria or a Falcon around the back roads of Australia.

If you love sim racing, you will love this.

My favourite racing sim for years. A must have for any racing sim and classic car fans.

Community still alive and kicking, plenty of mods around.
For online racing, your best bet is to find a group that has scheduled events. I race(d) at racedepartment.com, great guys there. Even got a few poles and wins; every single one of them in the Mini :D
