Excerpt: I was very skeptical of this game when it first came out - it seemed like a watered down version of the original game that was an excuse to squeeze some more money out of us during the wait for the brilliant Gran Turismo 4. Nevertheless, I picked it up cheap one day, and found that, above all else, it's still got the fantastic gameplay and stunning graphics that one expects from the series, as well as plenty of new vehicles - chiefly newer European cars.
A wonderful driving simulator with a lot to offer!

Excerpt: After being absoulutely outstanded by the standard of the previous Gran Tursimo 3 aspec release I just had to get the next game in the series. I must admit I really was expecting a lot given the very high standard set by the previous game. I was expecting it to be quite as good on many fronts but as I began to play on it I noticed that the game has just got that bit better!
a great game for the long gap between the relaes on gt3 and gt4

Excerpt: This is a great game, and it has one of the funniest and enjoyable races ever with these little Toyota thiongs where you have to drive round then stop in an area and wait for the car to squat then frive off again, but when racing agaisnt your mates you can drive behind tham and then butt them out of the space so they cannot complete the lap until they reverse and then you win unless they do the same to you.
Summary: In a paraphrase this game is like GT3 minus the GT Mode. Therefore technically it shouldn't be called Gran Turismo. Unfortunately the reason we have GTC is for the bridge gap between GT3 and 4. Perhaps this is in the fear that loyal fans would be lost to the other racing giants such as TOCA. I can't help feeling that Sony thought they would just make a game to pass the time until technology permitted the advancements of GT4.
Gran Turismo 3, with all the lifespan and value surgically removed
13 November 2006
Excerpt: Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo series has a rather fine pedigree in gaming circles. The self-proclaimed 'real driving simulator' raced onto the PlayStation scene in 1998, reinvigorating the racing genre with its remarkable depth of handling, superb design, dazzling visuals and unparalleled roster of cars.
Summary: Well, some might say that this is a smaller version of GT3 with concept cars, but ther eis much more to it than that. all the tracks have been remastered and small details have been added in to make this game a bit more than your average racing game. It follows the same game plan as the arcade mode on GT3 but you must complete cource liscenses to be allowed to race on the courses, the faster you go the better the car you win.
Excerpt: I could have started this review by copying my Gran Turismo 3 review, deleting the detailed description at the beginning and leaving you with the juicy parts, all tarted up and with new words. Why? Well, that basically describes what GT Concept is all about. History ===== First, let me describe the Gran Turismo games. These games started on Sony's first console, the original Playstation, and took the racing game world by storm.
Summary: Stictly speaking there are 11 tracks. (5 usual tracks, 5 usual tracks in reverse and toyota pod race track). You have to unlock each track but it is very easy and you just have to get a good time, (not going of the track). This is one of the most advance racing games ever, and has the most up to date car line up (new mini, fords, pegeot, subaru toyota, tvr, jaguar, lexus, VW and auston martin).
