    Default Panama on PS2 Gran Turismo 4

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned here before, but Panama is played in the beginning credits of SONY PS2's Gran Turismo 4. The game starts with a race inspired gothic/classical motif showing the new Ford GT parked in a garage, then some images of the pit crews walking to the track. The music being played is very dramatic/classicla-romantic ... then the game bursts into the intense racing scenes with the fantastic cars and graffics and the music is Panama. There is atleast 2 full verses and a chorus, which ends the song. It's really sweet to see that SONY put that song in the video game. It's quite a long clip with full band. DLR and all. Check it out. Great game and great choice for an intro!

    How is the game itself? Worth getting?

    The intro featuring Panama is extremely cool. The game itself is phenomenal and very worth spending time with.
