October 2, 2007 - Excellent - While it would be doing PGR4 a disservice to describe it as more of an arcade-style racer, it is certainly far more accessible to those of you who just want to jump in a fast car and drive.
October 12, 2007 - Excellent - Freed from the pressures of developing to match a hardware launch, and perhaps steered by the Forza team's strength in simulation, PGR4 wrings the best yet out of an already scintillating arcade racing game.
October 1, 2007 - Excellent - In short PGR4 is a complete driving package. As a car racing game it leaves the likes of Juiced 2 and NFS chewing its snow-spray, and as a bike-sim, it's a more forgiving, accessible alternative to MotoGP.
October 8, 2007 - Excellent - The amount of content in PGR4 is deserving of thousands and thousands of words, but hopefully you get the picture. It's got some issues still, but it remains the Xbox 360's premier racing title.
October 10, 2007 - Good - Project Gotham Racing 4 doesn't re-invent the wheel by any stretch of the imagination. But in a genre that's become increasingly competitive in the couple of years since Gotham 3, Bizarre Creations still crafts a game that's worthy of a podium.
October 5, 2007 - Good - Nothing is deeply wrong with Project Gotham Racing 4. It's a solid addition to the excellent franchise, adding a diverse selection of cars, new tracks, and the big marketing points of motorcycles and weather cycles.
