Gran Turismo 5: It’s all been done before…only better!

Does anyone else out there yearn for the age of genuine racing game innovation? (Colin McRae: Dirt 2, Gran Turismo 5, Project Gotham Racing 4, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm sorry but....
This is shameless damage control from x360magazine.

Nowhere have I heard anyone saying these features were new, they are missing the obvious point that no game has them ALL and at such a high level of quality.

Is the writer trying to convince his readers not to buy Gran Turismo... or himself?

Maybe they are afraid. That can be useful.
nix  +   1911d ago
WOW.. this article is totally lame..

wow he had to name 4 games to bring out the feature which GT5 alone is bringing out in ONE SINGLE GAME!

poor guy.

AND WHAT'S EVEN IRONIC IS... they gave 9.3/10 to COD:OP... even though it's rinse and repeat for the freaking last couple of years. MORON!

Wow - that is an embarrassing article.

I think GT5 is going to be bigger than anyone expected - at least in terms of initial sales. Perhaps some of these publications are genuinely nervous that their readership will be reduced by people picking up PS3s for GT5.

Of course, there will also be a big backlash come December, January - GT5 is going to be an easy target for the "one more car" or "one more track" people.

there is no need for us to defend God Turismo 5 from the likes of

we already know GT5's wait has bared it's fruit. i told people this is a game changer. the angst toward GT5 from flopbox outlets, and competing game studios is laughable at the very best.
now let's train with some laps.

Dear 360 fanboys (not 360 fans like myself)
Oh, let me taste your tears! Mm, your tears are so yummy and sweet!

(licks collective faces)

Forza was a great game, I can't deny that, and every game has it's bugs, so you don't have to waste your time posting them, but Forza gets cheapened when magazines like this tries to lower down a rival game without showing a game that's better. I would agree that another racing game was better than GT5 if they had PROOF, but they don't, so in the end they look petty and desperate for no logical reason.

Just got off gt planet and I have confirmation from the guy who been putting up pics and videos of GT5, and it looks like he doesn't have the the final copy of the game!!! so all the damage and and leaked game play is not from the final build... I REPEAT NOT FROM THE FINAL RETAIL BUILD... So all you you fake journalist talking mess of GT5 and XBOTS.... all your opinions are based on a preview copy of GT5.... He only got yo level 17 and was shown the the end credits.... GT1 isn't even that short... FOLLOW THE LINK, read and continue to the next page (his name is RDK)

damage control
butthurt 360 mag that didnt even mention forza 3, i wounder why, could it be because forza offers nothing compared to gt5? or the simple fact that this will be the best racer around, also its gona sell a megaton.

haha cant stop laughing at this article
has xbox sunk that low ?
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1911d ago
i know right lmfao i seriously hope this does not get approved but it probably will.
rrw  +   1911d ago
but it will be fun if this get approved I wonder what is reaction of xbox fan
gcolley  +   1910d ago
the xbox fan will laugh at the sony defence force. seriously guys, how do you equate one guys opinion as if it came from MS themselves.

personally i know it will be a great game graphically but will do very little new. the game will not be a sim as every idiot sony fanboy claims, it will be the same as all the rest so called sims (half arcade/half sim) and it will be awesome at it. if it was a sim, most would not enjoy it.

but come on, it is not the ten commandments... it's just a damn game. quit it with the worship

Ok, then GT5 do the same job as 10 games, and you wonder why it can be a great game ?

Srsly ?

no other game touches GT series. Please dont compare them
disturbing_flame  +   1911d ago
I mean as 10 games reunited. ;)
alphakennybody  +   1911d ago
LOL! that is all.
DaveX360  +   1911d ago
It's a serious point, man…
There's room for debate here, don't you think? Realistic racers can do little any more to truly excite, hence the ridiculous promotion of windscreen wipers, flashing headlights and the like.
Remember when MSR came out and what it felt like to drive with localised radio and a day/night cycle for the first time? Today's 'advancements' seem tame by comparison, and Forza 3 can be included in that. Apart from the custom decals, which are brilliant, obv.
ryuzu  +   1911d ago
I'll tell you what, why don't you establish for a fact which is best; JRPGS or WRPGS. Once you've done that, you'll be able to talk sensibly on this topic.

DaveX360  +   1911d ago
I'm honestly at a loss to deduce what you mean by that..
ryuzu  +   1911d ago
Then you've answered your own question.

It's up to individual taste whether one prefers a particular JRPG or a WRPG - there's no definitive answer.

The point is you can't say GT5 is lacking because it doesn't innovate enough for you. The fact is, many people are excited about the ways GT5 does innovate.

To put it another way - I bought a 360 for PGR and enjoyed it greatly. PGR 2 I didn't even purchase because I didn't feel it went in a direction I wanted.

@Dave. don't you know you are forbidden from having an opinion against a PS3 game. have you not learnt a thing the last 2 years.

ryuzu: "To put it another way - I bought a 360 for PGR and enjoyed it greatly. PGR 2 I didn't even purchase because I didn't feel it went in a direction I wanted. "

thats interesting, since PGR and PGR2 arent on the 360, theyre on the original Xbox......

Well, it is an opinion piece, after all. Doubtless other folk may have different views, because they're not me!
TronEOL  +   1910d ago
Yes, it is an opinion. But it's a poor opinion with no truth whatsoever. This man needs to be educated.

Jealous much? Gran Turismo >>>>>> Forza.
TronEOL  +   1910d ago
I'm sorry, but something people ALWAYS forget blind with their ignorance. Sure, there are single games with ONE of GT5's features.. but where on this earth can you buy a game WITH ALL OF THOSE GAME FEATURES ROLLED INTO ONE PERFECT PACKAGE?

It's a simple answer, and that's Gran Turismo 5.

Nice try, Xbox360 fagboys. It really shows true ignorance when you try to disrespect one of the most well known Racing Simulators and do it incredibly poorly.
TronEOL  +   1910d ago
I just thought about something. If a gamer with half a brain thought to themselves after reading that article, they'd WANT to pick up GT5. Because it has everything those games offer in one package with more realistic driving.

Which would make it the best driving experience ever made. (Note I didn't put "one of the", because there is no other game on it's level)
PimpHandHappy  +   1910d ago
GT5 is coming and it will be the last racing game i buy for years and years to come

But I'll still be getting:

Next year!!

saint_john_paul_ii  +   1910d ago
its called "I fear the Day that GT5 releases only for PS3" Mode.
thats a fact
blackburn5  +   1910d ago
Sigh. Is there some reason why PS3 games get so much scrutiny before and after launch. People still can't stop pissing on UC2 and it came out last year. Time Crisis gets lower scores for no story? Dead Nation gets lower scores for being done before. Everyone attacks GOW and Ratchet and Clank for being the 'same game'. PS3 games are 'boring' and it still has 'nothing to play'. Move's 3.5 million sales are a faliure. What is wrong with everyone? Are there different rules for the PS3? Why is every minor problem turned into an issue? Why the nitpicking? So many games are glitch fests, broken, hacked, cookie cutter and do nothing different but get away scott free. GT5 had one or two gltches and everyone jumped on the 'GT5 is crap' train. So I ask again what is everyone's problem with the PS3?

But that one disagree with no reply speaks volumes my friend.

The PS3 is a monster, and with games like GT5 being released, there is really no stopping it. That is the problem.
Strikepackage Bravo  +   1910d ago
I think
a lot of non fanboy types are getting a bit fed up with the hype, and acclaim GT5 gets, even though it is a testament to half assing game design, and jerking around millions of fans for absolutely no good reason.

We will no doubt see more negative articles written because everyone knows GT5 will sell well and get a meta score of 99, problem is no one with integrity believes it deserves it.

Lillee  +   1910d ago
According to that article
I now should just forget about GT5 and buy Ridge Racer Type 4, Auto Modellista, Burnout Paradise, DiRT 2, Sega Rally, ModNation, Blur, Split/Second: Velocity, Need For Speed: Most Wanted and of course Forza.

I mean what I was I thinking!?!?
Prcko  +   1910d ago
lolololololol n4g i think this is too much
SpinalRemains138  +   1910d ago
This is fucking shameful!

How can the greatest looking console game to date be put down like this? This reeks of fear from the Microsoft lovers camp. GT5 is simply so much better than Forza in every way possible.
