The Real Driving Simulator, But No Boy Racer

scream4br..., Ciao
17 December 2006
  • Excerpt: I remember when I first read about Gran Turismo in my monthly games magazine. I got so excited about the concept (of Gran Turismo mode) that I even described it to my parents whom did not play videogames. I didn't buy the game until it was re-released on Platinum, but the thought behind racing against my brother saw us take to it's tracks with haste. In this game there are two modes of play, Arcade and Gran Turismo. It's the latter where the depth of this game lies.
  • Pros: A feel of 300 +  cars, music I like, well designed tracks, depth to play
  • Cons: No damage, head - to - head racing, single song loop, boring A . I .

Complete fantastic levels to achieve various driving liscenses and a variety of driving awards, and once you have your liscence no one can stop you. Or if you cant be bothered to get your liscense and just want to go wild, then switch to the fantastic arcade mode, choose your car abd rah for real.

This Gran Can Still Teach You A Thing Or Two...

  • Excerpt: Back in 1998, the popular racing-game genre was still waiting for its first true classic to arrive. Role-playing gamers had the delights of Final Fantasy VII, first-person shoot 'em up fans had had it easy for years thanks to Doom, beat 'em up connoisseurs now had the choice of Street Fighter AND Tekken and yet strangely, there had yet to be a racing game with a real 'wow' factor.
  • Pros: Stunning looks, large selection of cars, great handling, excellent design
  • Cons: Lazy A . I, no damage

  • Excerpt: Gran Turismo, you must have heard of this game by now, if you are into Playstation at all. A game that was universally praised by every single Playstation magazine of note. So is it any good, well of course it is!!! The big selling point was the fact that you could drive anyone of 166 cars from 11 different manufacturers. Also you could upgrade individual parts from each of these cards.
  • Pros: Fast, graphically decent for the platform it is on, Great soundtrack
  • Cons: Graphically a little weak nowadays but that is being nit picky (I have rated Excellent though due to them being good for the platform they are on) .

  • Excerpt: One of the first games I actually ever played for the playstation was Gran Turismo. Ridge Racer had come and gone and this was the best the playstation could probably push itself to since a new hardware board was used to monitor the playstation around this time and Gran Turismo pushed about 92% of the playstations power on to the screen with this now platinum title. Gran Turismo has quite a complex structure.
  • Pros: Playability and addictiveness
  • Cons: People with a social lfe wont like this

  • Pros: Fast & alot of FUN !
  • Cons: ???????????????????

  • Excerpt: as soon as you see gran tourismo buy it that is unless you already have it this game is all quality the gameplay is good the sound is perfect and the controlling is unbeleivable and i thing that it wipes the floor with such games as ridge racer revolution and toca touring cars and it even beats gran tourismo 2 because the controlling on gran tourismo 2 is terrible and the gameplay is just the same.gran tourismo has a lot of good features like replay theatre where you can...
  • Pros: good controllability

Original and BEST

Dooyoo_Ru..., Ciao
26 February 2001
  • Excerpt: This was the original Gran Turismo, and like Metal Gear Solid, when this first came out we all loved it! The game is simply driving, and claims to be nothing else. It pits you against 5 computer controlled cars in a race to the checkered flag. Doesn't sound special does it? Let me tell you it is. There are over 500 cars to buy, all fully upgradable and tweakable, about 20 course to race around and tens of tournaments to enter.
  • Pros: Great game
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: This games is one of the best racing games i have ever played. It has the best championships and tracks that prove to be challenging and fast. There is a wide selection of cars and you have to do races and championships to save up the money to buy them. when you buy the cars there are many modifications you can add to them to improve the performance and power. Before you start you have to do some driving licences.
  • Pros: good graphics
  • Cons: none known yet
