Review: Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli (PS3)

With Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, from System 3, you get just what the name states.  This is a racing game with all Ferrari’s and is one of the biggest challenges you will ever have in a gaming experience!  With the opportunity to drive over 40+ authentic, classic Italian Ferrari’s; starting out with the F340 you quickly dive into the action.  You will also have the opportunity to drive on 16 of the world’s most challenging tracks!  This is not your average Nascar Race though, you will be turning both left and right!

Straight from the tutorial this game is all about the opportunities you take and challenges you complete.  The in-depth tutorial gives you a wealth of knowledge, and with the aid of numerous driving assists, I feel this is as close to driving a real Ferrari as I expect it to be.  As you get more experienced the assists have six steps that you can decrease giving you more and more control over the finely tuned Italian race car.  With more Wins, comes more choices in Ferrari’s you can drive.

The detail put into not only the cars but the tracks just immerses you deeper in the experience of being an Italian race care driver.  Running in HD graphics and 5.1 sound you will feel like your at the race track.  Having a in-car view is always a plus in a driving game and this doesn’t disappoint.

I do not happen to have a wheel for my PS3 but do feel the Sixaxis is the perfect controller to replace a wheel peripheral.  Its looser thumbsticks are ideal for a racing game and help aid in the challenging nature of Ferrari Challenge.

This game is definitely for the more hardcore, international racing fan.  Maybe that is the reason this is a more popular game oversees.  As we Americans usually stick to our left hand turns, but it is always nice to take a walk on the wild side and turn right once in a while.  When your ready to try your hand at driving over 40+ of the world’s finest sports car, and only have $60 US, then Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli is your choice!
