Race Driver 2006 review

  • Lots of race types and tracks
  • Bite-sized Trans World Cup gigs
  • Looks great
  • Some physics lag
  • Overly aggressive AI
  • Cockpit view half-assed

Apart from quibbling about the physics, the only thing worth bitching about is Codemasters' heinous "bonus codes" program, whereby you get a few cheats free and have to buy the rest. Lame, considering every other publisher gives you free access to any cheats built into the game. It’s a shameless money-grab technique.

Sure, there's room for improvement in the next edition, especially where some of the ground weather effects are concerned, and it'll have to go up against Gran Turismo in 2007, but Race Driver 2006 is simply the best racing sim you can get on the PSP today.
