This game is great. I now have a PS3, but this game really makes me wish I would've kept my PS2. The drifting physics in this game blow away all the drifting physics of any other racing game out there, including Need for Speed, Burnout, Forza, PGR, Juiced, and even Gran Turismo. The graphics are pretty decent for a PS2 game. Sound is not perfect, but still decent. Car customization is slightly below average and nothing near NFS Carbon, Underground 2, or Forza, but its liveable. There is no performance customization. D1GP is THE most fun I've EVER had in a racing game. Although, the physics have a VERY HIGH learning curve. Even the most seasoned virtual drivers may have trouble getting used to the physics and might spend a few grueling hours getting through the tutorials, which are required to beat the game. The AI puts up a good fight, so expect to lose a little bit. Survival mode is difficult, but the reward for completing it is well worth it. The car model, especially the ones of actual D1 driver's cars, are spot on. D1GP is also one of the few games where you can do tandem drifts, which is very uncommon except for in GRID and Forza. If you enjoy drifting even a little, get this game. The learning curve is high, but this feeling will go away. As soon as you get the hang of it, this game may very well be the most fun you ever have in a game, especially if you're looking for the one of the very only games with realistic drifting physics. BEWARE: this game contains strictly drifting, NO REGULAR GRIP RACING. However, this should NOT deter you from seizing the opportunity to purchase a great racing game such as D1 Grand Prix.
