Hey PDC, I am reviewing GTI Club+: Rally Côte d'Azur which was developed by Sumo Digital and was published and distributed by Konami. The game is available for $9.99 and has DLC.

Gameplay:
The game is somewhat normal with R2 to accelerate and L2 to brake. You can also set the controls so you turn by moving your controller by using Sixaxis. The game is a arcade racer instead of a simulation racer. Anyway the car's traction is very stiff so you are not going to drift in the game at all which makes it easier to go faster but makes it a little harder on turns.

Graphics:
The game has pretty good animated graphics showing a detailed image of Rally Côte d'Azur (which is based on Morroco).

Cars:
    Morris Mini Cooper 1275S (Mk1)
    Renault 5 Alpine Turbo (A5/R122B)
    Volkswagen Golf GTi (Mk1)
    Autobianchi A112 Abarth
    Lancia Delta HF 4WD
    Toy Dog (Unlocked by beating a Hard race)
    Fiat 500 Abarth (DLC)
    BMW Mini Cooper S (MkII) (DLC)
    Peugeot 207 GTi (DLC)
    Volkswagen Polo GTI (Mk5) (DLC)

Each car has 3 versions of it. There is Default, Police Version, and the Taxi Version. Players can also customize their car with decals, or painting it different colors.

Tracks:
There is one track in the game with 3 versions of it. The three versions are Easy, Medium, and Hard. In Easy, the track is basic with only 2 shortcuts unlocked and the A.I is easy. In Medium, all of the shortcuts are unlocked and the starting point is moved back in the track and obviously the A.I is more difficult at medium. In Hard, it is actually pretty hard as the game's track is backward so you have to find out a new perspective of the track.

Multiplayer:
The game's multiplayer has 2 modes. Race and Bomb Tag. In Race it is straight forth, you select any 3 of the map versions (Easy, Medium, Hard). In Bomb Tag, you have bombs circling one player and you chase other players and try to pass the bomb onto them and after a certain time limit, the one holding the bomb loses. In the lobby for the game, there are usually 3 open games with 3 or 4 players in them (8 total players). However there is no offline multiplayer such as split screen which is very depressing.

Overall:
This is probably the cheapest racing game on the PlayStation Store. If you are looking for other racing games, there are Burnout and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue which you can get. However both of those games cost more than $30 each. The game is pretty fun and I say if you are looking for a racing game, you should probably get this if your budget is low.
