Gran Turismo 5 (PS3) – Reviewed

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Well, cometh the year and cometh the game.  After 5 years in development and countless amounts of delays, Kazunori Yamauchi’s baby has finally been handed over to the general public. One of Sony’s biggest franchises has had, to say the least, a bit of a troubled schedule as Polyphony Digital strived for perfection and were not going to release this until they were happy with the product.

Gran Turismo 5

  • Excerpt: The easiest thing to start out with is “it’s another Gran Turismo game”. For some that’s good, and others it’s bad; this time around, Polyphony Digital do their best job at making it less-bad for some. Even though GT5 has an Arcade Mode, a Course Maker, and Gran Turismo TV, this review will pretty much only cover GT Mode as it’s where the game is.

  • Conclusion: Years of waiting, and we're presented with a title that still feels unfinished. Gran Turismo 5's main frustrations come from the fact that, at times, the game is entertaining and a joy to play. At other times, it had us questioning if Polyphony understand what the current generation of consoles are capable of. Not even an interesting photo mode and the Gran Turismo TV videos can save this from becoming one of 2010's biggest disappointments.

WR: Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)

gameusagi.com
24 March 2011
  • Summary: Gran Turismo 5 , considering its pedigree, can only be considered a disappointment. Yes it has a lot of cars and yes the handling and tuning implementation are top notch but a clunky interface, terrible load times and a pointless “B-Spec” mode hurt the enjoyment of Gran Turismo 5 as a racing game. As an ode to the car it holds more merit but I doubt most people would invest in the game because of that.
  • Pros: Great looking car models, Satisfying engine sounds, Good analog stick responsiveness, Solid vehicle variety, Tuning customization is expertly implemented, Lots of race customization options, Many dozens of hours of gameplay
  • Cons: Overly basic course textures, Terrible loading times despite massive hard drive install, Horrible soundtrack, Weak rumble implementation, Confusing and clunky interface, B-Spec mode is beyond pointless, Track creator is a joke, Unintuitive way to select vehicles, Annoying gameplay quirks tend to kill the fun

  • Summary: Step aside sissies, your tears are limiting traction.
  • Pros: Ultra-realistic racing experience, 1000+ cars, different race types, drool worthy visuals, actual (albeit minor) damage model, up to 16 cars per race.
  • Cons: Very very unforgiving of driving mistakes, some tracks get repetitive in the early game, near-unsurmountable learning curve for non-racing fans, too many useless features.

  • Summary: It didn't even register at first. I put my review copy of Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and started it up, watched a lovely cutscene and then began playing. No fanfare. No parade. No banners hanging from the ceiling. Here I was, in a slow car and on some standard track, going in a circle, rounding corners at a snail's pace. It didn't really register that I was actually playing the finished version of Gran Turismo 5 , after all this time.

  • Excerpt: There are big names in racing games, and Gran Turismo is one of them. After playing Gran Turismo 5 I am beginning to wonder why. The menu screens are overly cumbersome, the flow of the game is off, and some of the cars control like whales. Especially when we reach higher speeds.
