Gran Designs - Day two: Gran Turismo 2

PSone pushed to the limit by a blindingly brilliant sequel

There were still no Porsches or Ferraris, but what the hell. Gran Turismo 2 came out in December of 1999, just when the world was starting to get excited about PlayStation 2. That didn’t matter though - GT2 was a staggering creation that squeezed more out of PSone than had ever seemed possible before.

The feel and system was pretty much unchanged from GT1, apart from two enhancements - the number of cars went from under 200 to well over 600, and the tracks were boosted from the mid teens to nearly 30. It was huge.
