Summary: I seriously hope that Sony puts a lot more effort into their completed product. Mind you the graphics are superb, I don't think that anyone can deny that. Playing the game looks like watching the intro movie. The driving physics are improved from the previous game, to a point.
Great racing game, but not substantially improved over GT3

Summary: If you have liked the previous Grand Turismo games you'll like GT4. That's the bottom line. The down side is that there's not all that much new here. There are improvements: the graphics are a bit nicer, the cars' suspensions have more realistic travel and there are a lot of nice new tracks.
Summary: I have played this about 50% through, and there is an abiding sense of frustration with the execution of the game. The things it does well (graphics, multitude of cars, more tracks, etc.), it does extremely well.
Summary: I, just like everyone else waited a long time, through all the delays, for this game to come out (to long now I see the final product). I bought it the day it came out, excited to see these photo-realistic graphics I have been hearing about, and I see that they are only a little bit better than...
Summary: If you're happy with Gran Turismo 3, I'd recommend sticking with that. GT4's new features are not all that glamorous. For instance, B-Spec mode, while pretty neat, is only really all that great for really long races (multi-hour races) -- so unless you enjoy sitting and watching a race monitor for 4...
Summary: I'm not exactly a GT fan. Bad experiences with the first has lead me to a grudge against it. Even with the upgrades it all remains the same. Taking photos is nothing new to race games. I played it 4 2 days. After that i started playing burnout.
Summary: In terms of scale this game offers far more than anything else for the racing fanatic. Which is also one of the game's failings - there are far too many average cars to choose from that all perform in a similar way and which make trawling though the menu screens immensely tedious, so why offer such...
best racing game ever, but not much more to offer than GT3

Excerpt: Gran turismo 3 was the best driving game ever, everybody agrees with that pretty much. I was so excited about gran turismo 4 I couldnt wait. Gran 3 was a huge game, you never really complete it, there are hundreds of hours to spend on a game this size. Gran Turismo 4 you would expect to be better.
