Global Touring Challenge is all-terrain circuit racing set in some of the world’s most breathtaking and rugged scenery. With 19 championship circuits, all unique, and 12 special challenge tracks, Global Touring Africa is a massively varied game.

In the championship, you’ll select one of six teams and enter an event comprising of three rounds. The championship covers eighteen countries all around the continent of Africa, starting and finishing in Cape Town. The competition becomes increasingly difficult as you make progress through the game. This means that GTC has an enjoyable learning curve, it’s not frustrating as you learn the game and still offers a good challenge later in the game.

There are other exciting games as well. Challenge mode is a series of trials to test and improve your driving skills, from cornering to overtaking. Additionally, there are time-trials, a practice mode, and a multi-player mode.

First you’ll choose a team, each originating from a different country. Each team is equipped with a variety of cars from well known manufacturers such as Ford, Mitsubishi, and Subaru. Finding the right car set-up for each track is important. Getting the correct balance for grip, acceleration, and top-speed can mean the difference between winning and losing.
