I was suprised too about the graphics.. I had played NFS:MW,All burnout games and many others.But this one got me hooked.I was expecting foggy and messy graphics. What comes to endurance races,I can only guess that probably are fun. I have not got that F1 car yet from 150 mile race(which is kind of boring go around 100 laps)
there are few tracks i would not mine doing endurance races, one is trial mountain and another one is grindwald. its like those maps belong to me i can also perform quite well on the yosmite but i do not know whether that is available in gt3.
currently enjoying the ride in ae86, i have done certain drifts which very slightly resembles to one as seen in initial d series.
by the way in arcade mode there is a option called drift or racing what does that mean? --- i am in love albeit its one-sided as of yet.
