GT Racing 97, released in 1997, is a DOS-based racing game that attempted to bring the excitement and challenge of GT (Grand Touring) car racing to the PC. While the game aimed to capture the essence of high-speed, competitive racing, it faced several limitations and challenges common to games of that era.

Players could choose from various GT-style cars, each with different performance characteristics. The game included a range of tracks, offering different racing environments and layouts. However, the diversity in cars and tracks was somewhat overshadowed by the game's graphics and physics engine.

Graphically, GT Racing 97 was somewhat behind the curve, even for its time. The visuals lacked the polish and detail seen in other racing games of the era. The cars and environments were rendered in a basic 3D style, but they lacked the realism and immersion that players had come to expect from racing games.

Additionally, GT Racing 97's AI and difficulty level were other points of contention. The computer-controlled opponents lacked sophistication, often resulting in races that were either too easy or unpredictably difficult. This inconsistency in challenge level further impacted the overall enjoyment of the game. In summary, GT Racing 97 was a game that had the potential to offer an exciting racing experience but was ultimately held back by its technical limitations and lack of refinement.
