Spent 10 mins playing - the visuals are on-par with PS1, but the gameplay is very 80's Outrun etc.  Drove the Testarossa and F430 - I could barely pick the difference, the sounds are repetitive and don't reflect the speed of the car - upshifting in the F430 shouldn't sound like a BMW at 5000rpm.

I wasn't sure how they'd approach the controls - there's three options for steering, tilt mode which is just too slow to react, tap mode which is not intuitive because you use a thumb either side of the screen to turn and then sometimes you need to use the other to brake, and wheel mode which puts a steering wheel on the bottom left.  Wheel mode was best - however it effectively blocks about 1/4 of your screen.

The cars go into "drift" mode way too often - nearly every corner you approach, tap the brakes and all of the sudden the car is sideways, and it's somehow easier to drive several high speed bends with high angle of attack than it is to actually get the car straight! :?

They've actually got 208 GTB and 208 GTS in there - odd choices.

Not something I'll play sitting here at home when I have the PS3 in front of me, but I can certainly see it filling in some idle time out and about.

have you got the ferrari challenge game for ps3? i bought it a few months ago and played it a bit but lost interest as it took forever to unlock more than 1 car.... you start with an f430 and stuck with that for what seems like forever. i finnaly got a 512m and a 355challenge but yeah... all that asside, awesome graphics, but it would burn a bit on my plasma.

Nah I probably won't buy another game until Gran Turismo 5.

Yeah - but like I said, the control is too slow to react.
