I think the weather is going to keep me inside, but please post your impressions, Scott. I hated GT2002, I'm only getting this for the online rally mode. My questions: what is unlocked for online play from the start, is the rally mode multi-player or time trial, how's the co-op rally mode, how many rally tracks/cars are there to start/unlockable? Thanks.

I think you can import a SegaGT2002 gamesave, but you don't have to. I imagine you'll have to unlock cars and pass license tests as in the original, but I'm sure some tracks/cars/modes are open right away for online play.


There's a downloadable SGT02 save on an OXM disk that gives you a huge amount of money and a Jaguar that make it easy to win early races and licenses.

I don't think there is a Rally mode at all, Allen. Of all the stuff I've read about it, I've never seen mention of it. So, it looks like you might want to pass on it. Either way, I'll let you know.

Not a chance :)

I thought you loved SegaGT and the Gran Turismo series, Brian ;)

I just got back from EB with SegaGT and I'm getting ready to give it a spin. One point of interest is the inclusion of team modes which I'll go into more detail about when I'm done playing for a little bit. But, be assured, they are very cool indeed :D

First, let me start off by saying I enjoyed the first SegaGT on the Xbox.


Now that we have that out of the way there are a few things, ok, a lot of things that make me go wtf.gif


1- The menus and the Gathering Mode (new to SegaGT Online) are in 720p. But, they're like Soul Calibur 2 in that they are windowed, otherwise the game runs in 480p widescreen wtf.gif


2- While you can import your old save game from the original, none of your cars or money are there. Instead you are given an extra $100,000 to build up your garage wtf.gif


3- You need to be a rocket scientist in order to understand the menu system wtf.gif


4- My head hurts wtf.gif


Now, there are some good things going for it.


Team modes. One of the modes is most likely what Allen was referring to. In this mode, one person is the driver the other the co-pilot. The drivers screen has the vision obstructed, while the co-pilot has a clear screen and can let the driver know what is coming up, where the opponent is, all by voice or through button commands.


The other mode is basically like a relay. I played this with 5 others, 3 per team, so 2 teams. Basically, one person starts the race from each team and the other members see the race through the eyes of the driver. After the first lap is completed it's time for the next team member to drive and so on from there. It really is a lot of fun and makes for some interesting races.


Overall, my initial impressions are those of disappointment, but hopefully that will change over time, but really, for $20 it's a decent game, especially for race fans. Heck, it's still a lot better than Corvette, aka Poo.


I'll post more after I've played more online.
