Often driving games are sighted as an evolutionary dead end for video games. Whenever the medium as a whole is criticised for a lack of originality, automotive, football and shooting titles are blamed for stifling innovation. Recently though, there has been something of a return to glory for the once powerful racer. Project Gotham Racing 4 has recently received adoration and praise from both gamers and the media, and its contemporaries Forza and Gran Turismo are still enjoying loyal fan communities.
Still, System 3 is taking bold steps in joining the crowded driving market with completely new IP. Ferrari Challenge, which of course features the legendry Italian sports cars of its title, is the most recent game to fall loosely into the real-driving genre, which means realistic handling physics, sumptuous visuals, and obsessive attention to detail.
