Grand Prix Legends is a nearly perfect re-creation of the 1967 Grand Prix season, with Watkins Glen, Monza, Spa-Francorchamps, Rouen-les-Essarts, Mosport, Silverstone, Kyalami, Zandvoort, Mexico City, Monte Carlo, and the mighty Nurburgring modelled in the sim; only Le Mans is missing, and only two teams (Cooper and Honda) are missing from that year.

In addition to five historically accurate cars–the Lotus-Ford 49, the Repco-Brabham BT24, the Eagle-Weslake T1G, the Ferrari 312, and the BRM H-16–Papyrus has also included two fantasy cars, the Murasama and the Coventry (obviously meant to take the places of Honda and Cooper, respectively). And of course there are the drivers : Gurney, Clark, Hill, McLaren and many others who literally put their lives on the line in pursuit of victory and to quench their thirst for raw power and speed.

What makes GPL even more entrancing is the wonderful graphical flourishes–the bystanders, the animated officials, accurate mirrors (mind blowing the first time you see them) and drivers shifting down and turning the wheel as they enter turns. The instant replay feature gets a near-perfect score, as do the outstanding artificial intelligence routines developed for the drivers.

A lot of racing fans have raved about the game’s multiplayer action even over the Internet, but Papyrus and Sierra have come up a little short of the mark by failing to provide even a rudimentary chat area where GPL owners can meet and arrange matches.

Grand Prix Legends isn’t for everyone, but that little adage is true of many of the finer things in life. Provided you’ve got enough computing muscle to run it smoothly and the patience to stay with it long past the first feelings of frustration, Grand Prix Legends will reward you with arguably the most intense racing experience ever seen on a personal computer. —Stephen Poole, Amazon. com
