GT Legends demo

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 7, 2008

Whether three cars and one track justify the GT Legends demo's 263MB download depends on the speed of your connection and your appreciation for the Chevrolet Corvette, Jaguar E-Type, and Lotus Elan 26R. (The full game promises more than 90 touring cars from the 1960s and '70s.)

In the full game, you'll drive hard to earn points, win money, and improve your car to compete against other racers online. The demo only allows the "Quick Race" single-player mode at the traditional Dijon track or a shortened modification. While you only can pick among three cars, you can customize vehicle attributes such as steering, throttle, and brake sensitivity. The default keyboard controls are slightly bizarre, but a simple interface makes it easy to change them.

The actual gameplay is more realistic than arcade, and the graphics are very good. The most realistic effects occur whenever your vehicle shudders into a brutal crash. Five difficulty levels affecting assistance and opponent AI let veterans and Sunday drivers alike start winning races in no time. Everything in the GT Legends demo works well enough, but limited content and lack of originality prevent this racing sim from earning a top rating.

Developer's Description

GT Legends is the ultimate historic racing simulation, bringing back the legendary spirit of the 1960s and '70s. From the famous Mini Cooper to the muscular Corvette Stingray and fire-breathing BMW CSL, GT Legends is the first game featuring all the legends of classic car racing. In decades past, these mythical machines regularly met in fierce combat on racetracks across the world. This was the time when racecars were nasty, super-powered brutes. It took no less than fearless manhandling and wit to survive the hard wheel to wheel racing that define their era.

This demo for the historic racing sim features one of the three FIA GTC-65 class cars, driveable against up to 10 computer opponents on the Dijon circuit.
