Summary: if your into a racing game of some sort find a better deal with need for speed games this is fun to a poin then it just gets repetative and boring plus you can not link it with your ps3 system very well and use the cars there.
The lack of a simulation mode makes the game boring quick

Summary: The Good: Superb visuals, lots of tracks and cars, simple interface The Bad: No career mode, no vehicle upgrades, no online play, iffy audio, slipstream is a bad idea, random dealerships Hate me all you want, but Gran Turismo on the PSP is a huge disappointment. Why? Well, first off this game has been floating around the vaporware bin since 2004 and now 5 years later we get a half done game. Where's the career mode? That's my biggest question.
Summary: The graphics are impressive - it really shows off the power of the PSP. But sadly, beauty is but skin deep here. It appears that the game was geared entirely towards brief gaming due to the PSP platform - but its not what hardcore GT fans were hoping for. There is no career mode or customization is highly limited. Think of it as GT lite - Polydigital's take on an arcade game rather than a simulation.
Summary: For the price the game is a decent value. The game modes arent extensive but the physics are good for a handheld. It is nice to be able to play this on the road and add the cars in the collection to the PS3 version. If you are a racing fan and appreciate realism over flashy effects this is a good game for you.
A game that gets the fundamentals down but drops the ball in its execution.

Summary: Originally announced as one of the flagship titles of the then yet to be released PSP, Gran Turismo Mobile quickly dropped off of the radar into vaporware territory. Well, imagine everyone's surprise when, at E3 2009, Sony and Polyphony Digital confirmed that Gran Turismo PSP was not only in active development but that it was also going to be released this year.
Summary: This game at first I thought was going to be a waste of money. It was a good game though. This game was fun but after a while gets boring. This game is more of a game you play for a hour and thats it. I recommend this game to people who love car racing but beware it gets boring after a while.
Gets boring quickly due to lack of career mode and few competitors

Summary: While I appreciate the fact that with this version of GT I have access to all the cars and tracks from the get-go, the lack of a career mode really makes the gameplay get tiring quickly. Plus, in each race you have only three other components, one of which is really dumb but none of which is difficult to beat. The city courses in particular feel less than satisfying due to limited scene rendering and short circuits.
Summary: very good value, packaged well would certainly use seller again. Found game a bit boring, not really a gamer, so maybe to be expected but, really liked W2C so thought this would be more of the same only on race track.
Summary: If you like the offline career mode of any game, don't buy this, there isn't one. The license tests might keep you occupied for a while though, and any cars you win can be transferred to GT5 (although you can only use them in arcade mode). Good physics though, despite the lack of damage. Overall, a little too shallow for my liking - it never really held my interest.
