GameTrailers.com's video review of GT PSP.
A lot of sites have been giving this a 7. Can we all just agree that it didn't live up to the hype?
What hype? I didn't even know this was coming out. I didn't see any GT-flavored Mountain Dew. But seriously, I don't think PD should've bothered with this. Imagine how much more content would be in GT5 if it had the extra effort.
the hype of a game announced when the PSP was originally announced (5+ years).
Dreamcast, Do you honestly think GT5 has taken a hit because of GT PSP? Of all the studios I would trust to put out a quality home console project, PD would rank right up there with Kojima and Bungie. I wouldn't worry about GT5 if I were you.
Xbox360 owners said... "Gran TUrismo 5 in its entirety on a portable, if its not that then its a flop!" And here we are. I've never seen a game so 100% accurately reviewed for exactly what it was said to be, yet Polyphonys own words are ignored at time of preview/review in hopes that they some how crammed GT4/5 into a psp. The sad thing is that the game is 60fps, has 800 vehicles, superb visuals, and oh yea, amazing physics on a PSP game. Which is exactly what PD said they would deliver. And oh yeah, you can unlock cars and transfer them to GT5. If you were into GT mobile, you would have done a google search, at least once. To see what the game had to offer. You would have known about everything before the reviews, now reviewers are acting like they are shocked its 4 player ad-hoc? We all know this is a proxy battle between gran turismo and games that cant animate spoilers.But give it a rest already. If you review GT mobil and strike against it for not having a campaign i mean whats the point of the review
1 with and 1 without stripe = 2 cars. LOL fail.
telling me what games to buy. I decide for myself what games I want to buy. GT PSP is not meant to be a full GT5-experience kind of game. It's on a portable and meant to be played for short amount of time. I'm getting this regardless of the review score. I'll be able to unlock cars for the GT5 when it comes out later on, that alone is worth it for me.
I respect your opiniOn. I only hope that you don't try to forcefeeD your opinion to other people on other "certain gameS" out There.
of any other driving simulation for the PSP, so why would I force feed anybody into buying any other driving simulation games for the PSP? And for your info, I hate FPS.
I can now really appreciate why its not getting higher scores. The lack of polish with re: some of the visuals is more than disappointing. To be honest, give me 30fps and more cars on the track as well! Will probably pick it up when its at a budget price for the PSP.
I'm conflicted about the Gran Turismo PSP criticism. On one hand, I want to say, "What did you people expect?" It's a portable version of GT. If you want a fully career mode, etc., then play a console version. This is meant to be a portable version of GT just to get your fix when you're on the road (No pun intended). On the other hand, the PSP is supposed to be technologically superior to the original PSX. And UMDs hold more than a traditional CD (Which the PSX used). Yet, full versions of GT were released on the PSX. I know there's still limitations that make things hard on the PSP. But when it comes down to it, I feel like the "It's a PSP!" argument just doesn't hold any water.
...they should have just released GT2 as a PSN download for the PSP.
Yea, that's kinda what I'm thinking here. Maybe the graphics are significantly worse? I honestly don't remember how those graphics of GT2 looked, much less how they compare to GT PSP. I assume the PSP version looks a lot better, but I just don't think you buy GT PSP for the eyecandy. So yea, GT2 as a download would probably sell like mad for it's use on the PSP. I, for one, would sacrifice the graphics to have a complete game. But hey, that's just me. _________________ OK, here's a video showing a lot of GT2 gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watc... GT PSP is DEFINITELY a lot prettier. But yea, i'd still rather play GT2 on my PSP.
The only complaint I actually have is that some of the reviews seem to be reviewing of this game not as a PSP game, but a home console game. Also does anybody know a better racing game for the PSP, I want to buy a couple by the end of the year, GTPSP is one of them.
I don't like that the reviewer says the driving model "desperately needs to evolve." Almost all GT fans, I would assume, do NOT want to see any massive overhaul of the driving. The whole point of this series is to be a simulation of the driving experience. Why change it all up?
Indeed, it does not need evolution at all in that department.
He definitely lost a little bit of credibility with that statement.
the coolest feature i heard was what gametrailers hates the most. everyday i can unlock a new car randomly and trade it. thats sounds like alot of fun and quite surprising to get a really great car to race. also with the race and its challenges, its sure does sound like a career mode. Sorry gametrailers but gtpsp looks to be quite rewarding. its fun to play but this but that doesnt stop he fun does it? i need my reviews to have less emo talk and more videogamer. nice try gametrailers im sure you played this yourself.
I think the biggest problem lies in the fact that PD tried to keep it under 1gb and not use the full blown 1.7gb available on regular UMDs. Disappointing to say the least. That extra 700mb could have went into a career mode, better textures, etc.
So Emo. frstrated. dont feel lucky for the gran turismo jackpot lottery. gametrailers staff stingy with thier good cars and you cant race well enough for pink slips. thats not hardcore gametrailers. also, what you described is a career mode stupid. oh but you know better than me? im 30 years old and im great at gaming. why the lies gt? wsup with the sd video? why the dissapointment? 4 of your friends need to be online to play and gtpsp cost 40 dollars. Oooops.
Actually GT is spot on with their review of a 7.7 out of 10, Metacritics average is 7.8 out of 10. http://www.metacritic.com/g... Stop the crying. The game just isn't what its hyped to be.
it's a portable game made to give you quick pick up and play by yourself or with 4 friends. to bash the graphics like it's going to be presented in 1080p is hilarious.compare this game and it's content to any other portable racer and it should stand before all of them. and it's not like sony couldn't add ad-hoc mode as psp has memory card support just like ps3 has a hard drive included. fricken hilarious reviews for this game.but somehow.i bet there's something sony is holding back that connects this game to GT5 and not just car uploading. TGS can't come soon enough.
Sure, it is a PSP game. Its designed for a stint here and a track there. I'm really relatively pleased with the quality of the game. But, like Halo, it just doesn't live up to the price. If it were $20 I would pick it up day one. But no, its twice that. That money will just go toward GT5 now, which will only be $20 more for 200 more cars and who knows what else.
It honestly shouldve released after GT5
7 is good for a psp game ;) oh well guys check out this forza 3 vs gran turismo ferrari tribute comparison vid lol you will see who the real winner is http://www.youtube.com/watc... GT 5 ftw
It's gonnna be 10X better on PS3.
