Game that feels familiar

4

Years and years after original Gran Turismo, this latest incarnation still has many elements I've been missing with the PS3 games. This and with the cheaper price Gran Turismo 5 (Platinum) offers plenty of gameplay and many interesting tracks that do take some time to master. I have not played many racing games lately so I cannot say if there's better racing games available for PS3, but I haven't been disappointed after 20 hours of gameplay. 4 hours of that has been only Nürburgring nordschleife. Couple of hours arcade split screen and Monaco track revealed that knowing the track and gamepad experience equals win even with far worse cars... Like it should be. Rest of what I've played has been challanges and races which have been easy to win with gold, all but one... I expect they let Jeremy Clarkson set the parameters for Top Gear test track challange. That Lotus Elise has been given tyres without any grip at all. Game updated to version 2.0 recently and this tells me many of the negative critics for first release must've been fixed by now.

Gran Turismo 5

4

Played the Gran Turismo series since I purchased GT 2 for my Playstation. The graphics are excellent, sound is great, new cars, as always. And some tracks from the former GT´s are there too. And you can play online with or with out friends. BUT, there is nothing really new. Home screen has a new design, but a little bit confusing. Ok you have a zoom option, I like to have a clear overview and not a zoom. Cars from won competitions arent in your garage as usual, they are at the dealer and you have to activate them, WHY? Racing is still the same. You need this car for that race, your car has to be made in this country for that race and and and. Also the still stupid computer generated cars nearly never fail, they drive like they were on rail tracks and thats pretty unfair. B-Spec modus is updated, now you can have different drivers which could be trained, I only need one... I played it for nearly 50 hours, its ok but nothing really new. All who played GT before and love it, you should buy it. Especially for that great price of less than 15 bucks. Its a nice game and makes a lot of fun. I only gave 4 stars, because I miss new ideas in the game. They had a lot of time till the release of GT 5, but it looks like a GT4+ (like on iPhone 4s ;) )

Pretty nice one...

Just bought the game as a platinum edition. After 2 softwareupdates (1.5GB!!!) i finally could start the game. 1st thing i recognised was the sony-present of sebastian vettel race car.... so i started the engine and tested the car at the nuerburgring. after that - as i did with GT 2, GT 3 and GT 4 - i made my way through the licenses. it s a pretty good game and therefore i give 4 stars....

The King Returns!

5

Gran Turismo 5 offers a lot of great content for racing enthusiasts. More than 1000 cars to choose from and a host of fantasy and real world tracks, there's bound to be something that you like. It has photorealistic graphics and convincing driving mechanics. People who likes to powerslide through every corner, look somewhere else, this is no arcade racer (there is a arcade mode though). If you like to take pictures of your favourite cars, it's possible!. Because the photomode returns! With the highly detailed cars crafted by Polyphony Digital, your beloved cars will look better than ever. The game isn't perfect though, there are some graphical issues, like shadows not always looking great and there are some slowdowns whenever there's lot of cars on screen at once. But seeing what Polyphony is trying to do, it's understandable. Because in this iteration they added: 16 cars races, night/day cycle, weather (snow & rain), WRC, Nascar, karting, Online races and more! Also Polyphony keeps patching the games and adding new content for FREE! On 11 October there was a huge update called "Spec 2.0" it fixes and adds new content, like new cars and faster loading times! Racing fans won't be dissapointed with this game!

Gran Turismo 5 (Platinum)

It's a great game. You can almost enjoy an authentic experience of velocity, but I think Forza is a little better at this point. However, if you are looking for a driving simulator game for PS3, this is a good game to spend hours and hours in front of your TV, because it includes many challenges to accomplish. I really recommend this game. Moreover, for the price of Platinum edition I can say that this is a MUST-HAVE game. In fact, I have it.

Can't fault...

5

You can't fault such a raved about game when you can purchase it now on Platinum for less than £15 from The Hut. Especially with their usual quality standard of speedy delivery. And to think, I found this site on the side of a soft drink bottle! Top Stuff!

The best car game ever.

5

I've been a gt fan since the ps1 release. This is the best car game ever, including nascar and some other series that amazed me. I like the graphics, and the extraordinary sound. I was waiting the platinum to fill in into my collection. one word.. Excellent.

After all I read about this game, my expectations was a little high and the game did not match those expectations. I have more fun playing NFS Shift or Dirt2 (I can wait to play Dirt3). GT5 did have some excellent graphics, but it fails a little in performance and driving "reality". I give 4 out of 5
