Summary: So, I've played GT since the original when I was a kid... I loved getting the new ones a t Christmas and playing them through till there was nothing left... I played all of GT4 and let a LOT of time pass before buying GT5. Life gets busy and there's no time for games...
Summary: The XL edition of Gran Turismo 5 is one unique and beautiful beast, a truly exhaustive and uncompromising celebration of automobiles. The racing experience itself is not bad. Sometimes it's good.
Warning: Online Play No Longer Supported As All Servers Have Been Shut Down

Summary: This review is for the game functionality and not for the campaign. Yes, the campaign is great. But I purchased this specifically for the online portion. You wouldn't think that if you buy a relatively recent game that the online portion would no longer work.
Summary: This was probably a great game at one time, but not so much any more. The problem is that Polyphony has removed all DLC from the PS3 Store. What does that mean? Well, the most annoying result is that all the race cars in dealerships are by download only. This means you can no longer buy a race car.
Summary: Such a great game, but to get it for $10 just really sealed the deal for me. It comes with $25 worth of DLC, which is great, but If I were you, I would wait until you got far into the game to use the DLC, as it really ruins the fun of progressing through the career.
