Twinfinite - Gran Turismo 6 Eurogamer Expo Preview

Twinfinite's Henry McMunn got a short sitdown with Gran Turismo 6, the results were not pleasing. (Gran Turismo 6, PS3)

so standard complaints atm its not forza, handling could be an issue but im not sure havent played much with it

Writer here. I don't really like Forza either, I have no brand loyalty. But Forza honestly handles far better.
ZodTheRipper  +   704d ago
Forza 4 definately does not.

"... but you don’t have to be to see that Gran Turismo 6 so far is really, really bad."

Stopped at this point, your "article" is a joke.

Try again sucker! Why do you "preview" games genres's you do not like? Cum again? I think you should try your "luck" with something else. How about writing a article on old age homes then call it "Granny's parlor". You would do much better with it.

PS: I have to ask, are you even a real gamer? and before I forget, How much are M$ paying their "gamers" doing their Shilling? I need cash seriously!

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy experience previewing the game, but your article comes off as more than a little biased and misinformed. Your criticism of the handling shows you've no experience of simulation racers let alone driving real racing machines.

"Actually attempting any hard-brake turns or drifting of some kind led to an absurd amount of skidding and sliding around hopelessly..." Because a 700+ Pagani would certainly hold your hand around a corner right? Maybe you (or someone else who demoed) turned off the TCS, or used hard tires? That would explain your handling issues, although I'd actually assume its more a fault of your poor driving.

And just so you know, Gran Turismo didn't take the driving line idea from Forza, they've had them since GT4... since before the first Forza game. Not to mention GT ALSO tells you the recommended gear for taking corners.

you Dont like forza either?? what do you like, n4s and mario kart? word of advice: dont preview or review racing games.

"GT6 has also taken some cues from Forza (read: better games) by adding in the guide lines on the road..."

You mean the racing line, which has been around since at least GT4?

"Cars feel like they have little difference between their front and back wheels..."

Strange that the 1GB GT Academy demo played NOTHING like what you describe, and it can't possibly be a better build.

"I’m pretty sure a Pagani Zonda can turn a 30-degree corner at 30mph without just completely losing traction and doing several complete spins. I thought I was driving a sports car?"

You... don't actually know anything about cars, do you? It actually requires a LOT more finesse to drive something like a Zonda than you'd think, even with driving assists on. There are precious few high-end sports cars out there that hold your hand and make you look like a better driver than you are. The Zonda's not one of them.

Failboat Skipper, indeed.

lmao anybody can make an article nowadays.

"Cars feel like they have little difference between their front and back wheels"

What the hell does that even mean?

"I’m pretty sure a Pagani Zonda can turn a 30-degree corner at 30mph without just completely losing traction"

Well its not an Arcade game like FM. So if people complain about that then their not intro Sim racing games/ racing games with realistic handling like GT.

Forza didn't even handle better than gt5 and I played the gt6 demo it was far ahead of gt5 and forza. The handling has always been GT's strong point and aside from this all of the feedback so far has been positive on gt6's improved physics.

Quite possibly the stupidest thing I've read all day. Please stop writing anything videogame related, you aren't cut out for it.

Now I know to avoid any articles from your website, thanks!

" I play video games, primarily on the Xbox 360."

Well now. :3

This article is a joke.
Bluepowerzz  +   704d ago
yo i stoped reading at i play xbox 360 all your credibility as a normal real gamer goes out the window

Never played Forza before so I can't comment it. But hey! GT5 actually taught me something about finding the apex of a turn. It's all in the license tests.

I can apply those same techniques I learned from GT on the road in real life. If anyone complains about them just tell to imagine a long highway commute where everyone on the road but you failed driver's ed.

Good job.

No, not really.

You didn't address ANYTHING that anybody brought up as a critique against your article.

Not about you being wrong about the driving line.

Not about the weirdest description of handling I've ever seen.

Not about your inability to comprehend how to drift(or that not all cars are automatically configured for it).

Not about you having no clue what a Zonda should act like in a turn.

No, you'll just be a sarcastic ass. Do NOTHING to give yourself or your article credibility, and instead make yourself look worse.

So yeah, good job at that, I guess.
