Summary: Only real complaints are so many of the cars you have to win, limited selection, loading screens, and a lot of cars that just plain suck, Then the good cars you have to win instead of just put a price on them, Also so many of the cars you win can't be sold for cash they just sit valueless fluff in your garage. Also as always American muscle cars are horribly misrepresented, and Japanese cars rule the game.
Summary: This is not a bad game, but its not anything amazing. The main issues I have with this game is that the engines don't sound right for the cars in this game. The cars all have a generic engine sounds. Pretty much a stock sound, modified sound, and a suped up sound that applies to all cars in the game. The muscle cars don't sound throaty or powerful at all. They sound more like a Honda. The other issue is the game physics.
Summary: Gran Turismo 4 covers all areas of racing, including: Rally, endurance, classics, and even Formula 1. What I don't like about GT4 is the fact that all of the Formula 1 cars were taken out. GT3 had 5 or 6 different F1 cars that you could win and race. The best one was the F094/H. GT4 only has one F1 car. You can't get it until you reach 25% game completion and then you have to race in a real time 24 hour endurance race to win it. That is a little rediculous.
Summary: What does Driving mean to you? Car + Driver + Race = Exactly that, when I first played GT4, I didn't put it down, and when my G Force Steering wheel came, It felt like I was actually driving the car I was in, This is better than Toca Race driver 3 for one reason alone, the focus on gameplay, rather than normal races, and endurance etc, there are missions, that test your driving skills to the absolute limit, a damned fun game to play.
