GAME OF THE MONTH
FERRARI CHALLENGE TROFEO PIRELLI
Here's one for the Tifosi. Absolutely everything about this game oozes Ferrari. OK, so the clue's in the title, but seriously - this is one hardcore prancing-horse-athon.
There are 50 cars to choose from - yep, all Ferraris, and all ready to be ragged. They've even wheeled out Tiff Needell to give you some driving tips. So expect to go sideways a lot, then. More impressively, they got Bruno Senna (yes, Ayrtons's nephew) to help out in the development - he made sure the cars sounded and handled right. It's well worth keeping an eye out for his Top Gear sponsored car. The game squares up to the likes of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and although it doesn't knock it off the throne, it does a pretty good job. The controls take some mastering, but once you get going, you'll be drifting like Tiff. You can even go online and race 15 other challengers around the world too.
Which is good stuff if you love all things Ferrari, but a bit boring if you like a more varied gaming life. Still, cheaper than driving the real thing, eh? DR
