I did a quick search to find this game to buy, but had no luck. Should I wait for the 2.0 version. I am currently running need for speed III and having a blast, but I just saw a commercial for the PC version of Gran Turismo and I must have it for the PC.<p>NeilM

I'm not aware of this game being out for PC yet, but<br>it is freakin' awesome on the Playstation. I am one<br>race away from beating everything in the game. And,<br>boy has it been fun.<p>I would think it's worth it to try GT1 even though GT2<br>is on it's way. I think it blows away Need for Speed.<p>Corey S<br>Wett 97 1.8tqm

Take Colin McRae Rally from the same folks that brought you TOCA. This is even better than the dated TOCA in graphics, and the rush of Rally Racing is amazing! But be warned - it WILL workout your steering wheel! I already have to replace all the brake/gas springs on my Thrustmaster NASCAR Pro wheel, and also have to constantly tighten the screw for the steering wheel!<p>Next, TOCA2 is out for the OSX (in Europe), and the PC version is soon to be. Graphics are going to be even better than McRae Rally too!<p>Now both the above games are Euro only, so far. But Codemasters will ship them to you in the US, but Interact CD ROM in Pasadena, CA has Colin now, and will have TOCA2 soon as they can. They have a website on the Internet, so you can also mail order these.<p>Now, Viper Racing is very good, and AWESOME with the RIVA TNT card (and I can run it up to 1024X768), but it is only with the Dodge Viper.<p>Soon though (DROOLING!!!), Professional Sports Car Racing will be out! This is a much anticipated racing SIMULATOR that is about the US version of the Euro F1 GT Races. It will include the Panoz, Viper, BMW M3, Saleen Mustang, and a few others (maybe even the Mercedes CLK or the McLaren F1???). It will also have the REAL tracks (Laguna too!), and possibly the 24 Hours of Daytona!<p>Now though GT is a good game, it IS just a GAME. No realism, though the cars might feel like it. But the tracks and everything else is fantasy. These games I have mentioned above are considered simulators, meaning near as possible to the real thing. And TOCA2 will even have the mandatory pit stops as required by the new BTCC rules!
