Summary: Ok, look, Gran Turismo in its PSone & PS2 forms were some of the best racing games you could buy. Even though I now have a PS3, GT4 on the PS2 is still easily my most played console racing game. Unfortunately, the 'modern' incarnations of GT, in my opinion, have been lacking. GT5 Prolouge seemed to have lost something in the handling model - it just didnt seem as much fun to really push the cars as GT4 and I really do hope this is ammended for the full blown (and eagerly...
Summary: I waited a while for the game to arrive and it wasn't as good as i had hoped. There is no career mode and all you do is choose where you race. you get given a lot of money to start with which ruins the essence of raising funds to buy better cars. The other problem is that you can not trade in cars for something better. There is no point in the end as you get no ending to it all you do is keep on going till you have bought all the cars in the game.
Summary: Like many others I've been waiting for this game for a long time after I first caught the GT bug with the original PSone version. So it is, perhaps, with this is mind that I've rated this game as lowly as 2 stars - like meeting your heroes it never going to live up to expectations. It goes without saying that the driving experience itself it excellent; the team programming the dynamics of how a car drives have been doing it a long time* and they really know their maths.
Summary: Have to echo all the comments made in the other reviews. Graphics good, plenty of options but whats the point when no career mode? For me this has ruined the game so you have to decide if you want just a racing sim.
Summary: I bought a PSP not long after it launched due to the rumoured imminent arrival of Gran Turismo PSP. Years later and the moment has come and it is a big disappointment. Although there are lots of cars and lots of tracks it is missing something quite major which is an actual game. There is no immersive career mode, just a set of options to choose you own race. The game chooses the competition based on what car you choose.
Summary: Big Fan of GTs... played all of them. I really enjoyed this one as well doing the licences etc... and then what??? Nothing really, you just go one single races. Also not all manufacturers are available, you have a daily list, which is terrible, when will I get the Ferraris??? I've given up before reaching that point. Come on GT5 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
