Early Gran Turismo 5 Reviews Show Mixed Impressions

Gran Turismo 5 is one of the PS3's most-anticipated games of the year, and it's certainly the most-anticipated racing game, so gamers everywhere are curious to read the first Gran Turismo 5 reviews to see whether it's been worth the wait. With the embargo lifted for publishing Gran Turismo 5 reviews, we're now starting to get a picture of the first reviewers' impressions of Polyphony Digital's fifth chapter in the series.

Very true.

Average to good scores, but I`ve yet to see anybody absolutely raving about the game.

I`m guessing it will average around a low 80 on Metacritic, not bad.

"I`m guessing it will average around a low 80 on Metacritic, not bad."

True, but if that actually happens, it will not sit to well with GT fans.

@LordMarius - Don't be so sure on that. Supposably Too Human took 10 years to make, and the game was utter shit.

EDIT: Don't matter if it's a sequel or not, 5 years is 5 years, and 10 years is 10 years. More time doesn't = better game. B rating is still a great score, and it's not like a B rating is going to stop people from buying it, so it really don't matter. All scores are is bragging rights.

LordMarius2941d ago (Edited 2941d ago )

It shouldnt since anyone can make a B rated game with the time and budget spent on GT5

Edit: Too Human was not a sequel though, GT5 is 5 years in the making with million of $$ poured into it, so a B rated shouldnt sit to well

If I'm not mistaken, there have been like three scored reviews so far. And who knows if any one those reviews are actually real.

I wouldn't get too excited yet...

Cevapi882941d ago

scores will not deter people from buying this game...its had such a long and rich history that people like me have followed up on every little news that came out about the game

sure the trolls will have their fun and compare it to Forza or other sims....that doesnt bother me, all ill care about for the next week is making my ps3 work overtime until i pass out from all the fun and excitement this game will bring to me at least

Two non-English reviews vs huge amounts of praise, with critical points, from people who have the game on GT Planet who are the biggest critics of everyone.

So now we have a few more reviews, what were you saying Thom?

chainer30002941d ago

All the realistic reviews (ie: not ones rating absurdly low for site hits) have been averaging 8.5 to 9.0. I'd venture to guess meta will be around 80 because they include some very obscure sites sometimes.

Most credible reviewers IMO:

In general, I find Game Informer to be one of the most agreeable, and IGN has great and detailed reviews though they often conflict with their overall score.

Balt 2941d ago

None of the reviews out are even tabulated in Meta; that, to me, says a lot about the site(s) worth and integrity. I've never been a GT fan, and I hate racing games. With that said, even I bought the game. That also says a lot for the power this series truly has over the consumer.

RememberThe3572941d ago

I'm not really a racing fan myself, but I'm getting the game as well.

DeepInterludium2941d ago

It doesn't matter whatever site it is.

If they're releasing their reviews this early, they haven't had enough time with the game. Probably the reason why you're seeing so many errors in reviews.

blackburn52941d ago (Edited 2941d ago )

T9X69 here to troll again once again I see. Three half @$$ed reviews that were made before the embargo was lifted and barely even ledgable and suddenly GT5 is average. Never seen so many people so eager to fail a game before. Oh right I forgot. 'PS3 exclusives must be attacked scrutinized withoit mercy and torn apart at all times without fail'. Fanboy handbook chaper 5, line 10.

T9X692941d ago

None of my comments have been trolling lol I'm simply reading the article and commenting on the topic discussed. You want to see troll comments? Go to the GT5 reviews and look for the ones labeled "Trolling" and read them.



"Lol. ''Gran Turismo 5 will be so much better than Forza 3''. What now? I bet Gran Turismo 5 will have 80% average score of many reviews. Are you going to say that scores does not matter now too, just like you were saying that sales don't matter. Huh PS3 fanboys?

Forza 3 FTW! Go Turn 10, much better developer.

Oh, I can't wait tommorrow. IGN and GameSpot dropping the bomb. I mean if they give this game a 7 or something like that, I'm going to laugh out loud. PS3 fanboys probably having a nervous breakdown."

That's trolling.

Bits-N-Kibbles2941d ago

Wow, those quotes are very disturbing. Are they playing games or are they betting money on systems?

Quagmire2941d ago

Maybe EA were right in crticizing GT5 in compared to what they aim for in Shift 2.
