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. (Gran Turismo 5, polyphony digital, PS3)

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.

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...

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

lol the stealth trolling is almost too unbearable.

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?
chainer3000  +   1345d 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.

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.

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

me too

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.
blackburn5  +   1345d 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.

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.

Wow, those quotes are very disturbing. Are they playing games or are they betting money on systems?
Quagmire  +   1345d ago
Maybe EA were right in crticizing GT5 in compared to what they aim for in Shift 2.

Wouldn't mixed scores imply scores ranging from really high to really low? The lowest GT5 review I can find is 7/10 o_O

I think the problem with gt5 is that by taking 5 years to make it everyone is expecting it not to have any faults and blow all the other car games out the water. But from what I have seen of this game its not done that. Yes it is the best looking car game so far released but things like the ai and only a few 100 cars with damage is hurting the game reviews. I'm a big fan of car games and think forza 3 is the best game I've played so far followed by f1 2010 but I'm sure once I pick up gt5 I will find it just as good if not better than forza 3. Also just because a game is getting an 8 or below dose not mean its a bad game. Look at black ops and mw2 they got 10 out of 10 yet Bfbc2 and MoH got 8 out of 10 yet the people who picked those games up find than to be the better games. I'm sure gt5 will sell very well no matter what the reviews say.
