GT Racing 97 is a racing game released in 1997 by Ocean Software. The game was released for PC (DOS).
GT Racing 97 is a racing game reminiscent of the cult Need for Speed series. The creators decided to depart from the realism that characterizes typical vehicle simulators. The production offers an arcade style of driving based on the dexterity and speed of players' reaction. This translates into great dynamics and spectacular racing.
There are 8 tracks from all over the world in the hands of players. These routes vary in appearance (e.g. forest or winter scenery) and the difficulty level. Initially, however, players only have access to 2 routes, the others are unlocked with success in the championship.
Sports cars available in GT Racing 97 are modeled on real models, but they cannot boast licenses. There are machines such as Hurricane and Predator among the cars - each of them has both strengths and weaknesses. The most important aspect of the game is the intelligent maneuvering between increasing and reducing speed, which has an impact on the behavior of cars (e.g. making corners difficult to enter).
The game offers a split-screen and the ability to change the view to the camera located behind the car, in the cockpit or on the hood.
