Need for Speed GT

Need for Speed GT - Cabinet - Video Game Marquee


Get behind the wheel of the world's top high-performance cars, including the 450-horsepower Dodge Viper GTS, the nimble Lotus Elise, the BMW Z8 and the fastest production Corvette ever made, the Z06. With a mix of high-end American muscle and top European exotics, Need For Speed GT has cars that will appeal to all players.

With remarkable car detail and state-of-the art special effects, the graphics of Need For Speed GT are second to none. The sky is reflected in the surface of your car. Smoke pours from your tires when you punch it off the line. Leaves blow from trees as you rocket past. Of course, it's hard to notice these details when you're tearing down a mountain road at 160 with a Z8 2 inches from your right rear quarter panel.

Need For Speed GT features a player-selectable difficulty system that provides easier handling for beginning players and more challenging realistic driving physics for experienced drivers. The driving experience is further heightened with 6-speaker surround sound and force feedback steering. Need For Speed is linkable, allowing blistering head-to-head competition for up to 4 players.


Runs on "industrial-strength" PC hardware. Software developed by Electronic Arts. Game engine is based on NFS6: Hot Pursuit 2 (although there is no actual "hot pursuit" mode in the arcade version at this time - only racing). Software is upgradable and may introduce new cars, tracks, and game modes.
