Tourist Trophy features a wide variety of motorcycles, scooters, sports bikes, endurers, naked bikes, and Motard ranging from 125cc to over 1500cc. Bikes are from 80's to modern day. Major real world race circuits are also featured, including the famous Nürburgring.

Gameplay

Tourist Trophy includes two main game modes:

Arcade Mode

This mode is straight into the action. The player chooses a motorcycle, a track and applies changes to any settings that they want to change such as, riding style, gear, AI etc. The player is free to choose race settings.The race modes are "1 on 1", "Race" and "2 Player Battle". "1 on 1" is a one-player mode that allows you to play a head to head race using normal bikes. "Race" is a one-player mode that lets you choose a course and motorcycle, and then aim for the fastest possible lap time. "2 Player Battle" is a two-player split-screen mode where you can race against a friend.

TT Mode

TT Mode

The license system from the Gran Turismo series remains the same, you complete challenges to receive licenses. There are four license types: "Novice", "Junior", "Expert" and "Super". The higher the level of your license the more bikes you can acquire in Challenge Mode and Race events you can enter. To acquire more motorcycles you enter Challenge Mode and select a bike and paint scheme, then complete a goal-specific challenge to acquire the bike you chose. In the Garage you can view the list of bikes you currently own. You can also manage bikes and change your riding form. In the Riding Gear menu the player can select the riding gear from the available set you've acquired. 186 different riding accessories including different helmets, gloves, boots, pants, one piece racing suits and jackets are available.These unlock as you win races and earn licenses, most major motorcycle brands are available, Arai, Shoei, AGV, Alpinestars and Dainese etc.The default difficulty setting is "Normal", this can be changed to "Professional" which adds separate control of the brakes and more realistic AI.

Photo Mode

This a simplified version of the Photo Mode in Gran Turismo 4. This mode allows you to capture images of  the bike you are currently riding. You select the best bits from your run and capture pictures from there. These can be printed from a compatible USB printer or transferred as JPEG images to a USB memory stick. Images can also be saved in a format readable by the game itself on the memory card.

Tuning

Another trait that carries over from the Gran Turismo games is the tuning. Tyre pressure, gear timing, suspension etc. can all be changed to a players liking. Ridimg Syle can be changed to suit the players own needs. Players can choose from these riding forms, "Lean Body", "Neutral", "Lean Bike" & "Motard". "Neutral Form" is a comprehensive, easy riding style, "Lean Body" focuses on quick cornering and "Lean Bike" makes initial turn-in quicker and helps during slow cornering. "Motard" relates to the french style of off-road/road racing. In this riding style the rider puts their leg out during cornering. All of these have their own advantages and disadvantages. Riding form tuning is available in both Arcade and TT modes. You can also choose the settings you wish to modify and create your own custom riding style.

Reception

Launch

The game was released first in China on January 26, 2006 and February 2 in Japan. The game was released in the US on April 4, 2006 with seven new motorcycles, new riding gear, seven bonus BGM tracks, in depth profiles of each motorcycle, a "Semi-Pro" difficulty and enhanced visual effects. The game was released in Europe on May 29 and Oceania on June 1. The European version contained new BGM tracks by European artists.

General Reception

The game was praised for its realistic simulation of motorcycling, amount of motorcycles and in-depth tuning and customizing, but was criticised for having only three other AI racers in it's race modes and it's lack of online play. Some criticised the tracks receycled from the Gran Turismo series.
