GT Pro Series review

Cel-shaded realistic racer set to... hang on, don't go away

Pros

  • Pretending to have fun
  • Returning it to the store
  • Purchasing a new game

Cons

  • Graphics
  • Handling
  • Yourself for playing it

One of the first racers on the Wii sets a particularly low standard that every future Wii-racer has to beat.

The poorly cel-shaded graphics engine may have been passable on current-gen machines, but this is next-gen %26ndash; as powerful as the Wii's competitors are, but still. The soundtrack is a shocking state of affairs, the cars sounding how you think mud would sound if it could talk and in the background is a Europop house soundtrack. On top of this the handling is awful, with cars skidding all over theroad as it's easy to oversteer. There will be better Wii racers %26ndash; of that there can be no doubt.
