It does seem much easier to fall off a motorbike than a car, leading to more swearing whist playing Tourist Trophy over Gran Turismo.
The upside of this is that the feeling of swinging a bike round bends is slightly more satisfying than doing so in a car.
For a PS2 game (based on Gran Turismo 4), it still looks quite nice although the engine sounds do seem to grate a bit. Polyphony could do worse than release a new version, or even add motorbikes to a GT release.
I do like the original Gran Turismo tracks as some of the “real world” ones can be a little dull. Bridges are always nice to race over. Ah, Deep Forest: you so entertaining.
