A range of challenges awaits each player - from lapping the fastest, to completing trials or missions. An improved "Story Mode" mixes gaming styles, with players able to choose different characters, each with a different path through the game. These modes are based on the fictional exploits of a world-famous Lotus Challenge Team, which not only race in world championships across the globe, but is also called upon to perform stunts for films and adverts. Players will be able to endure an Italian Alps hill climb, whiz around Hollywood film sets, or take part in a tyre commercial on an Oil Rig. In addition, players can race through rush-hour traffic and fly past speed cameras in the English countryside, ensuring that Lotus Challenge lives up to its name.
A multi-player option is available for those willing to take on others. These are spread across Championships or decided on a single race. Specific modes and challenges result in hidden tracks or cars being unlocked and available for play in any other mode - so once you've finished a particular section of the game, you'll be able to replay it in a faster car, thrashing down lap times in single- or multi-player sessions.
All the Formula One cars featured in Lotus Challenge will be courtesy of Classic Team Lotus representing the Formula One achievements of Team Lotus. The virtual models have been extensively tested by real Lotus test/development drivers, to ensure the game is as accurate as can be. Even the World Famous Lotus Designers have become involved creating two Lotus concept vehicles for inclusion in the game.
Story mode, requiring the player to perform a variety of stunts, missions and challenges - weaving through oncoming traffic to escape the paparazzi, hill-climbs on treacherous, snowy alpine tracks, being filmed jumping lines of school busses for adverts and many others!
A revolutionary new control method that provides higher fidelity driving control without extra peripherals.
An impact dynamics system allowing all cars to sustain full chassis damage - shattering windows and lights, bumps, dents, ruptures, scratches and even detachable wheels!
A realistic yet accessible driving model tested and endorsed by the Lotus test drivers themselves.
A full compliment of cars licensed from one of England's most prestigious manufacturers.
