VideoGamer: Gran Turismo PSP Review

VideoGamer.com writes: "Make no mistake, this is Gran Turismo as you remember it but on a handheld, and done in a way that betters what I imagined was possible. It looks great, plays superbly and has an absolute ton of content to work through. It's impossible not to feel more than a little let down by what's missing, though. A more structured career mode would have been great, online leaderboards and ghosts simply should have been included, and the lack of online play is bitterly disappointing. Who knows what will be added to the game post release, but as it stands we've got the ultimate handheld driving game with a fairly bare bones feature list. Buy it, spend hours earning credits and buying cars, and try to overlook the glaring omissions without shedding a small tear."

So many reviews. I'll just play it then I'll judge it myself.

Same here. Being a car enthusiast first and a gamer second, I'm still getting this game. Like I said, it's still better than other racing games on the PSP thus far. And If I can take a Subaru around nurburgring anywhere I want, then so be it.

Highest scoring review atm, odd. No career mode makes my highest 8.
"GT on PSP features around 200 cars" WTF?

Panthers2954d ago

I dont know. IGN was saying that there is no 'story' or 'career' mode which means you race just to race. That sounds boring to me. Ill wait for GT5

The Great Melon2954d ago

To me that is what a racing game is. I play it to race. In all honesty, I do not know what the career mode is that everyone speaks of. I may not be a big racing fan, but when I do play those kind of games I play it for the race.

See there, people? Someone loves it. You can't spell ignorant without IGN. They gave it a 6.8 because it has beautiful graphics, great sound, smooth racing, huge variety, but... not a deep enough console-sim style career to make it seem like your races are more important than just providing the thrill of a race? Come on. This is a portable game, be fair to it, like this Videogamer review.

I happen to trust IGN reviews. Hell their review was worse than Eurogamer. Face it, GT PSP isn't a very good effort. Well, maybe effort isn't the correct word, but that mode should be there.

Sarcasm2954d ago

It's not that it isn't a good effort, it's just because it's missing a huge game mode that everyone expects.

raztad2954d ago (Edited 2954d ago )

The lack of career mode it's obviously disappointing for anyone expecting a full Single Player experience, so makes sense GT it's getting not so good reviews.

GT psp is aimed to race sim fans on the go :D, ie, someone that just want a quick race for the fun of it when outdoors. Furthermore adhoc 4 players races make GT an incredible proposition in the Japanese market.

All the above make sense: amazing game for a quick race on the go, amazing as a party game but it's NOT a substitute of the real deal GT5.
