Excerpt: I saw Gran Turismo on the Playstation Portable (PSP) for a really good price on clearance. I wondered how well this Sony racing game made the transition to this hand held device. Ultimately I came away from the experience with the opinion - the PSP version of Gran Turismo is okay. It is not stellar, and it is not horrible. In the middle of the road on the dotted line.
Excerpt: If it's true what they say, that absence makes the heart grow fonder, we would expect to be very fond of Gran Turismo for PSP. Presented years ago as if it might be a launch title for the new system, we now have in our hands the product of years, months, weeks, and certainly many hours of hard labor. Expectations, either from old gamers like myself or newer gamers fresh off the streets of Midnight Club or Test Drive Unlimited are obviously high.
Excerpt: For any fan of the long running Gran Turismo series, patience is a virtue both on and off the race track.

Excerpt: First shown when the PSP was unveiled in 2004, the portable Gran Turismo has tantalized fans for a half-decade.

Gran Turismo PSP's structure is very do-it-yourself. There are no dreaded license tests, no overarching driver profile, and no career mode whatsoever.
