TVG: Gran Turismo 5: Prologue Review

TVG writes: "The second GT title to make itself known on Sony's latest powerhouse, following the veritable sniff that was GTHD Concept, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue continues in a similar vein to GT4: Prologue. A limited selection of tracks and cars, together with a smattering of modes (and the fulfilment of that near-Holy Grail of the GT franchise, online multiplayer) at the outset looks like Yamouchi-san and his Polyphony team may seem a tad restricted in depth...but it's so very far from that.

It's GT, so the description of 'virtual car porn' remains very much intact. Obviously a taster of the gargantuan library of cars the full GT5 will come packaged with next year, the European release of Prototype launches with around 70 vehicles with models from the 2005 Suzuki Cappuccino to Ferrari's F2007 Formula 1 racer - the latter only emerging within two weeks of the game's release. First off, and exactly as you'd expect, the vehicles are superlatively stunning. Crisp, photorealistic, and more polished than a set of Army marching boots, the examples of motorcar from the everyday to the sublime in GT5: Prologue are quite literally awesome. Purely striking in a way that GT's rivals can only look on with envy at, the level of detail is incredible, from the tiniest LCD on a dashboard to the texture grain on the inside of the new cockpit view."

Yes the best virtual car porn at that for the moment, before we get the ultimate hardcore act which is the full version GT5.

This is exactly what it feels like to be in driving/racing game heaven.
