Game description: You are the driver. You've been given a finely tuned car which has been prepared by some of Italy's finest mechanics and you know it is fast enough to win. But do you have the skills? In Racing Italiano winning comes down to how tuned you are! Put your skills to the test across a wide variety of racetracks from the hills of Tuscany to the streets of Milan, from the forever-challenging Laguna Seca to the incredibly fast Hockenheim circuit. Be the first to experience exclusive features such as the Tiger Effect, which gives you the ability to reverse time in the race, and many other extraordinary elements that Squadra Corse brings to the driving genre.
It is similar to the Gran Turismo series except for the role-playing game elements. The game was lauded for having artificial intelligence superior to Gran Turismo 4. When compared to Gran Turismo 4, Alfa Romeo Racing Italiano has far fewer cars and tracks. All the cars in the game are manufactured by the Alfa Romeo motor company (unlike Gran Turismo which has vehicle makes and models from countries from Australia to Sweden).
A distinguishing feature of the game is that it models driver development using a system almost identical to a role-playing video game. In addition, cars get damaged, both visibly and in performance, by collisions or by driving off course.
