BackgroundGran Turismo 3 features cars made up of 2,000 to over 4,000 polygons. The game delivers 10 times the graphic power of Gran Turismo 2. Fog and mist affect driving conditions while light and shadows affect road visibility and add an element of realism and visual appeal far beyond the previous Gran Turismo titles. Every car has been designed to spec right down to the unique engine sound
GameplayGran Turismo 3 A-Spec puts you in the shoes of a professional race car driver as he progresses through his racing career. You'll be able to buy, sell, and trade from over 300 cars from nearly every single major car manufacturer in the world, such as Nissan, Toyota, and Dodge. Numerous parts and upgrades can be obtained from the car shop to increase the performance and handling of your vehicle. Once you have built your perfect car, you can choose from a selection of tracks to race upon. Many of them, like the Laguna Seca Raceway, are modeled after their real-life counterparts. The amount of laps and the types of cars you will race against depend on the difficulty you choose to race in. Beginner offers you a chance to get used to the controls and develop your driving skills. Intermediate is for those racers who have the basics covered and are looking for a challenge. Professional allows you to race against very skilled and talented racers that won't hesitate for a second to pass you up. Rally lets you race using specially designed cars that were built for racing on the dirt and gravel. Endurance races are the longest races of the game, usually lasting about 1-2 hours. Patience and determination are the key aspects needed to win these kinds of races. This game is also for two players, so get a friend and start your engines!
