GTR2 shipped to North America
This is for the hardcore racing fans out there. Being a fan (and still owner) of the first GTR, I can predict this game will be amazing and a huge leap from the first one. What makes GTR great was the authencity of the cars, physics, and tracks. This blows Gran Turismo out of the water in terms of realism. GTR2 SITE
