Tourist Trophy Hands On Impressions and Movie Clips (PS2)

Game Informer Online has posted their hands on impressions of Tourist Trophy, including a few movie clips.
"Players can eventually choose from around 100 different bikes, 35 tracks (mostly modified from GT4 for motorcycles), 20 in-game songs, and 22 different race events. A nice sampling of all of these elements is available right out of the box in arcade mode. Here you can pick out your high performance machine from the likes of Honda, Aprilia, Kawasaki, and Ducati. And you can also choose some sweet neon racing outfits (pick the right clothes and you can be one chain whip away from a generic thug from one of those mid-nineties arcade beat ‘em ups). Arcade mode includes a duel against one NPC, a race versus three NPCs, a time trial mode, and a one-on-one split screen race against another player."

I doubt that it won't be long before we see this in more places.

I just messed my pants over the prospect of leaving video messages on the server. The possibilities for trash-talking online rivals are endless.
