:think: I must say (and no offence), I think the shots of the cars in action are more appealing then the simple side shots.

antp BE (26)

2006-09-24 00:28

I agree, but they also take more time to be made.
I'll probably do that for the games that I listed when I will have time, and move the "boring" shots in the comments.

I Really enjoy this game, still play it to this day.

Oddly thinks its better than PGR and Forza. When i first played it, the game was so good it made me fall in love with the Playstation all over again.

when play with the lower powered cars(such as the Momocourse MR2 And BP Apex Trueno), it was actually a achievement you could be proud of when you won.

Toyota 2000GT is very hard to find... As soon as I started my GT career it shows up in Toyota showroom but valued more than $1,000,000,000 so I just leave it and 6 days later, it's gone and never shows up again.

How long have you played before you buy it? 150+ days in GT has been passed and I've never seen a Toyota 2000GT.

Quite possibly the best car line up I've ever seen in a video game. You have the chibi-esque Japanese superminis like the Honda Z and Mitsubishi Pajero Mini, all the way to fearsome exotics, like the Saleen SR and Venturi 400. Any other games' carlists have nothing on GT2.

J-2 ES (1051)

2012-01-19 01:21

Games like Forza 4 or Enthusia also have a list full of variety, but yes, i think GT2 is still the game with the best car selection ever made.

I mean...when it's the last time an Alfa 145, a Peugeot 406, a Citroën Xantia, a Renault Espace F1, a Dodge Avenger and an Intrepid, a Fiat Cinquecento and a Seicento, a BMW 750 and a 8 series (and a lot more cars...) were seen all together in a game? Not counting games like The Getaway, of couse, which is a whole different concept.

What's the point in posting them at all. From what I understand they're racing modification for existing cars.

Yes, but they take the form of several race cars, including BTCC and WRC competitors. Like I said, if they aren't allowed to be added can I atleast put them in as "Interior Views"? The RMs in GT5 are allowed so why not GT2?

No. It's just modifications. For RM cars in GT5 it's different. The RM cars are real cars that you had to pay, you don't had to pay the normal car and modify it to have the RM.

Uh, correct me if I'm wrong but aren't the RMs acquired exactly the same way in GT5 as they are in this game - through modification? IIRC only in Prologue you had to buy them separately.

Rinspeed wrote ah yes so we erase them or we consider that it's real car because these are on the official list (not the case in GT2).

RM cars count as real cars on GT5, so they must stay. Do NOT erase them otherwise, you might have commited a mistake.

WARNING- I'm telling the reality, not offending anybody.

Antti-san FI (38)

2013-12-28 17:16

Sorry, but what does "on the official list" mean? Personally, I think we should list the Saleens in TDU and the RMs in GT2 and GT5. I think they are all sufficiently different from their "host" cars to warrant it. It's not like they are just randomly tuned and painted by the player, but complete packages.

-- Last edit: 2013-12-28 17:28:27

Which is my point. We include traffic vehicles from many games, and they aren't on the "official list", so to speak.

ItsaUserName EN (69)

2014-01-01 16:55

*Bump* I will not let this discussion die. We need to be clear on this. We either go the whole distance and list the RMs in this game, or we don't, and delete the GT5 and TDU RMs. We can't leave it in the current situation as it isn't right.

eggsbawcks UK (1)

2014-01-01 17:35

I agree. Practically every RM is based on some form of real racing car, sans some of the sponsorship decals on a few, so they deserve it. I don't see how GT5's can be classed as their own cars for having 'RM' next to them, yet GT2 can't, even though they have 'R' next to them; it's effectively the same thing. Forza had pre-order DLC cars which have nothing more than a new livery classed as their own too.

Granted, doing all the race mods will take a while (what with all the used cars and the daily car cycles), but that would make a more complete list. Especially since some race mods are complete overhauls, like the Intrepid dragster.

ItsaUserName EN (69)

2014-01-01 17:52

Exactly. And thanks to me having EPSXE and the wonderful tools known as Save States and Frame Limiting Off, getting a replay screenshot for each RM will take just shy of 5 minutes. All we need is the final verdict from Rinspeed.

I agree. The RM are based on real racing cars. For example, you have an Citroen Saxo VTS. If you put RM on it, then it will be converted for Citroen Saxo Kit Car.

i had already answered for my part. And you know that the official list don't list the include traffic but this isn't playable cars of a racing game. Since the beginning, we always said that we don't want tuned cars, but the original car. So for GT2, no (just paint job for me). And for the others i can erase them if it's the case.

Why does this game rank so high? I own all of the Gran Turismo's except the original. I liked GT4 much better (More than GT5 or 6)

speedfreak975 LB (63)

2015-09-24 09:17

Because it was the best out of the GT series it's amazing, probably the best game on the original playstation , GT4 was great but I preferred GT2 over it.one of the main features that I liked in GT2 is transforming your cars into race cars which was absent in GT4

GroupB US (617)

2015-09-24 16:03

It had a very extensive car and track list compared to the first Gran Turismo, but lost over time is the fact that it was also unfinished and buggy as well. I still remember being shocked that cars would merge together when they collided. Now it's seen as a classic, but back then it was rushed out to hit Christmas 1999 and could have used more polishing.

2015-09-24 17:55

As for the cars merging together, I've seen them do this in GT1 as well. Probably because of the engine used for both games. And yes Burn Rubber, I'm sure you didn't know they could do this on GT1 as well. I'm sure you now have intentions on both games to crash repeatedly.

GroupB US (617)

2015-09-24 18:06

I never noticed it in GT1, but it happened in GT2 on a regular basis. Don't forget the 100% completion bug as well.

AutoTracker US (64)

2015-09-24 18:27

The 100% completion bug happened because drag racing, another event type that would have counted towards 100%, was removed so late. That's what the purpose of Dodge Intrepid's RM was supposed to be, as well as the HKS R33 and 180SX.

I sadly don't have Gran Tursimo 1. :(. I got GT2 at a flea market. It was the two-disc edition and I literally payed like, $4 for it. Didn't even think it'd work. The others all came from GameStop. If I had to rank them by my collection, GT3 was my least favorite. GT4 was probably the best to me, and GT6 was pretty good. (But I miss Used Car Dealerships so much. :( )

K I have questions:

I can now fully re-do the bad menu pictures for this game (Cheats are a IGCD member's best friend), But I do want to bring up race modified cars...

I am fully aware of the discussion above about race modded cars, But,
Rinspeed wrote
So for GT2, no (just paint job for me)

If this is why we don't have RM cars, then I think you may want to reconsider :D :

Plus, Race Modded cars are technically different cars. Although in the menu the picture with the name doesn't change, The car DOES receive a [R] in it's name that is only on RM cars. The reason why the menu doesn't change is because if they did it for all RM cars then they'd have to make seperate pictures (they are pictures yes) for every RM car when nobody really cares. Plus, RM cars get their own events in One Make Races. If you ask me, RM cars are different cars then their standard variants rather than just tunings.

Sorry to beat a dead horse, But since I'm going to be re-doing a lot of these pages (Don't worry Rinspeed I'll still use your front shots) I figured I'd ask. If you're going to say no then plz don't get to mad at meh.
