Once again, Sony Computer Entertainment America leads the racing revolution with
Gran Turismo 2000 for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, the third
installment of the multi-million selling Gran Turismo franchise.
The most realistic interactive racing experience to date, Gran Turismo 2000 delivers
speed you can feel. The game takes full advantage of the DUALSHOCK™ 2 Analog
Controller so that the harder the virtual driver pushes on the pressure-sensitive controller,
the faster the car goes, simulating the gas pedal of a real car and allowing drivers to
“feel” the speed as they maneuver through curves and shoot down straight-aways.
Gran Turismo 2000’s sophisticated car physics and meticulous environment mapping
create broadcast quality graphics that blur the line between game and reality. Whether
it’s the sun’s beaming rays off the windshield, or smoldering heat waves rising from the
tarmac, Gran Turismo 2000 delivers a glorious racing dynamic like no other.
Using the PlayStation 2’s calculation power, the physics model is identical to that of a
real car. Advanced opponent behavior and calculated physics turn mere car physics into
emotion physics where players will sense other cars reacting to sneering passes and
jarring cut-offs. Other new features include enhanced graphics (the polygon count per
car model is 10 times higher than its predecessor, Gran Turismo 2), a two to four multiplayer
mode using the Multitap 2, new detailed courses, additional car models and an
improved interface design.
Building upon the winning formula that made its successors a huge hit, Polyphony
Digital’s Gran Turismo 2000 is a technological breakthrough and visionary masterpiece.
The flag is up and the race is on.
