GTI Club+: PS3 Demo Impressions

These Sumo Digital guys have done some interesting stuff.  New International Track & Field? Excellent stuff. The same can be said for Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast for the PS2. It took me quite a while to download the demo version of their latest game, GTI Club+: Rally Côte d’Azur, for the PS3, but the wait was somewhat worth it.

For some of you long time arcade heads, GTI Club was a pretty looking racing game released by Konami released way back in 1996. My first impression of the remake was, I in an arcade? The graphics are of the shiny, crisp variety, not unlike the ones you see on arcade units but in 720p.

The sound effects, well, pumping up the volume will make you feel like you are sitting in an arcade cab. The game comes complete with the cheesy announcer’s voice.

The demo only featured one car, a Volkswagen, but don’t expect real-world driving physics in GTI Club+. The handling is quite loose here and the car feels like a matchbox on wheels, lightweight and prone to catching some air.

The game is a pretty fun distraction, the only problem being the demo makes you wait for several seconds with a big ad for the full game on the screen. It’s available for download on both US and European Playstation Stores, so do check it out.

    I think I saw the graphic of the game before and it’s pretty good. Not sure about the gameplay, but if there is a demo, it’s worth a try.

    @hyperx: It’s a new racing game, which you can purchase and download from the Playstation Store. And yup, it’s for the PS3 🙂

    @Jessen: Gameplay is more of the arcade type. Hehe. It’s a small download, not over 300 mb. It took a while to download, not thanks to streamyx.
