PS3 Fanboy writes: "Before gamers ever really got to play it, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was already slapped in the face with accusations of being nothing more than a glorified demo. Branded with such a stigma, many gamers had turned away from Prologue and decided to wait out until next year when the "real" GT5 races out. Are these people vindicated in their racing abstinence? Or are they missing out?
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue does continue the tradition of maintaining the most realistic driving sim out on the market, but it also has some skid marks that won't go unnoticed. While the game is stunningly gorgeous and plays like a charm, a rigid online mode and the lack of fine tuning cars tends to make this game feel less like Gran Turismo and more like any other racer. With more positive traits attributed towards looks, are we then saying Prologue is about style over substance? Certainly not. It's not that simple."
