This game rocks! I've played it with a friend, 24 hours in real time. With pitstop and tactical elements, great graphic effects, sounds and driving physics....it's really enjoyable to play it.

Unfortunately the game creates different save games when inserted into japanese DC than in european DC (Test Drive Le Mans instead of Le Mans 24). So these saves are incompatible. A lot of languages are missing in Test Drive Le Mans, too.
I've always wanted to give the 24 hour mode a go.

I might have to track this down and buy a copy. :)
What a great game. :)

Graphically this one is really impressive, though the pop-in on the vehicals can be noticable. Little beats tearing down one of the Le Mans straights at top speed, car bouncing and shaking all over the place, slamming on the brakes at the last instant. My only complaint is the lack of control over AI/car automation. You either have manual everything and really hard AI, or auto everything (braking, gears, traction, spin) and really dumb AI. The in-between setting isn't the right balance either.
