iTWire: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue first impressions

iTWire writes: " The latest franchise to make the jump to the next generation is Gran Turismo. What has changed? Here are the iTWire Gran Turismo 5 Prologue first spin impressions.

For me Gran Turismo is somewhat of an enigma in video game racing. In so many ways it is behind the times with no damage model, no online presence (til now), a sedate feel to the actual racing, and an AI that sticks to the perfect racing line with a Terminator like determination.

Yet, Gran Turismo is GT! and the fan base that has been garnered over its years on previous console generations love GT for what it is.

With the imminent release of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue for PS3, that fan-base will already be standing in a pool of their own saliva in anticipation; in fact pre-orders for the game already show that it will be yet another blockbuster."

The story is too old to be commented.

"...and an AI that sticks to the perfect racing line with a Terminator like determination."

It's not an arcade racer but a sim. A sim that's pretty close to reality and in reality you lose if you don't stay on the perfect racing line.

I just hope the full version releases by christmas.

Cyrus3653405d ago

Gt 5 won't be released till next year, they've already on record stating that.

sonarus3405d ago

This is false. They havn't hinted at an 09 release date all they have said is they will let it slip to 09 if they have to

ChrisGTR13405d ago

lmfao.. gt5 coming out next year... yep.. that adds 1 more delay to the already enourmous list of delayed ps3 games..

Lemons3405d ago

The full GT5 will not come to the EU or US till 2009, most probably March / April 2009. They are hoping to have the Japanese version out for christmas 2008 but have stated it will be released when they are happy with it.

"The actual racing is pretty average in my opinion, not exactly white knuckle stuff, but at the same time, not really the focus of the game."
Ok, so racing is not the focus of a racing game? It sounds to me from this preview that despite if the game is lame the GT fishheads will go crazy for it and that is exactly what is happening. You have people saying how it's the greatest thing in racing on consoles ever yet when you dig a little and find the truth it is a average racer with a shiney coat of paint. No damage modelling is last gen.

JVIDICAN3405d ago

shouldnt u be playing forza or something mr.xbot? =P
one sites opinion shouldnt really be taken seriously

spandexxking3405d ago

kinda what happened with halo3 then? wait scrap that, thats excatly like halo3. let me correct.
"It sounds to me from this preview that despite if the game is lame the HALO fishheads will go crazy for it and that is exactly what HAPPENED" lol at bots doubting how addictive this game is just coz it not on teh xbox.
