«©NCSX» Hayato Kazami jumps into the Super Asurada 01 once again and races in the Cyber Grand Prix against a host of ambitious contenders and ardent competitors. The Shinseiki GPX series has been a stalwart on Playstation consoles since 1999 and the new PSP game is the first portable release since Varie published a Gameboy version of Shinseiki GPX in 1992.
One of the hallmarks of the Cyber Formula series on the PS2 is the smooth sailing motion of the cars as they speed through the roads at 700 km/h and muscle for rank against the other drivers. The illusion of speed makes the transition to the PSP version faithfully with the walls blowing past the drivers in rapid fashion. The controls are also obedient where slight tugs and taps are enough to guide the Asurada through the winding roads and the litter of competitors on the track. Players may go into a drift by moving the controller in the direction of the curve and braking. Once the early part of the curve is taken, simply accelerate again.

Racers who are lagging behind may rely on the Aero Boost which throttles a vehicle to maximum speed for a few seconds until the booster gauge dwindles to nothing. A car customization system allows vehicles to be upgraded to higher levels of performance to improve handling, braking, and acceleration. A total of seven tracks are available in the game including a stage where the roads are covered by ice. Two major hairpin turns are also built into the icy track to give racers even more of a challenge.

Japanese PSP games may be played on North American and European PSP handhelds. There is no region-coding on PSP game UMDs.
