Rated 2/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
I like the look of this game, but that is about it. There is little incentive to try to get first place when third will suffice to unlock new cars. However, you can cheat to get first by simply driving under the starting line bridge perpendicular to the track when the race starts, then back up across the track and you will win. Hmmm...No real reason to keep coming back to this game at this point.
Classic GP is slightly reminiscent of Virtua Racing by Sega.
They share the the traits of using non-textured 3D polygons.
This is a look I have long adored.
Classic GP actually has very cool gameplay mechanics.
Driving the car feels awesome.
I had my doubts, as I usually only use 1st person / in-car cam / bumper cam.
Classic GP has none of those, but remains one of the few that still drive very well without it.
The vehicle models are very well done as well.
It would be nice to have some new tracks with very different scenes, like sunset / nighttime racing.
Maybe even the addition of simple things like Water / Bridges / Tunnels - Something.
I am giving this game 5 stars. I feel that it has been rated WAY too low.
I don't understand the 1 star ratings - this is a very cool game.
I have over 1700 games - I know what a crappy, 1 star game is - Classic GP is FAR FROM IT!!!
Anyhow, best of luck Jorge!
I've been on the look out for a very simple and fun racing game and Classic GP delivers. It offers very smooth and clean graphics and controls. It's not the most in depth racer but I consider that a good thing. I love the style and simplicity.
To the creator, I have a suggestion/request. For games like this, I almost never take my finger off the accelerator, I think the game would be even better if you added a control option to remove the up and down arrows and have the car automatically accelerate and let the player touch anywhere on the screen to break and reverse. Just my thoughts. Love the game though, great work.
