IncGamers: Gran Turismo 5 Review

After many delays, Gran Turismo 5 is finally here and IncGamers' John Robertson took the game for a spin.

"GT5 is a love letter; a wonderfully poetic, meticulously crafted sonnet penned by a game designer Kazunori Yamauchi to his lover. That lover is automobiles. GT5 is not so much aimed at gamers as it is at car lovers, at petrol heads, at speed freaks. Whether you enjoy driving cars, appreciating their design or consuming yourself in the history of man’s primary mode of transport GT5 has a place for you, within its mountain of content, to gratuitously indulge your passion." (Gran Turismo 5, PS3) 9.2/10

good reviewed i would give it a 9.5 to 10.10 point score
InfectedDK  +   1404d ago
Yeah but 9.2 aint bad either!
Fantastic game.
Carbide7  +   1404d ago
Yeah, I just took this photo during a replay at HSR earlier today. It's stunning at 1080p.

And whatever anyone says about the game that's negative. The one most important factor is incredible, the gameplay.

I thought this'd only really be good for motorheads, but if the game itself stands up well as a racer without that...

Been playing it non stopped going for gold medals. This game looks crazy good sometimes. You really need to play this on a good tv to understand.
cvflyboy  +   1404d ago
Yea man i know what you mean... I just finished getting all gold medals for the first license and i was jumping out my seat!!... You really feel like you accomplished something with the realistic physics and its mad fun testing out the different types of cars.

the most irritating (for me) thing about GT is that when you race, it will make you concentrate really hard, then somewhere you think that "maybeee... i'm somewhere in top 5 by now" because you think you've been slogging all this time and you didn't have time to look at Position because all this time because you're all the time trying to keep the car on track and not f*ck up and then suddenly you find out you're STILL AT 14!!!!

oh.. i love you GT.

i dont understand
what the gripe was about the menus... I like em

This game is a easy 9 for me and im only a couple races in.
40cal  +   1404d ago
I like the menu interface also, love getting deliveries.
rdgneoz3  +   1404d ago
The menus for me (the "My Home" at least), remind me of like a webpage somewhat. It may not be bullet-point style format, but it looks nice. Especially if you play around with the pic at the top and the color shade at the bottom (for My Home).

I loved GTP and GT5 is only going to be a huge improvement. I get my copy in a few days and I'm very excited about it.

''There’s so much in GT5 that it’s impossible to cover it all in a single review without running to ten pages or more.''

I have to agree with this.
And lot of reviewers don't know about the damage at Lvl 20.

Damage at lvl 40:

Can't denied the best damage system GT5 have than any other racing game as a simulator.

But, you don't want to crash them if you don't have enough credits, because you have to pay to repair them.

yep, hopefully gametrailers, gamespot, and g4 take their time before making their review.
Umb  +   1404d ago
I wouldn't hold my breath for a fair review from some of the sites your mentioned.
Ultraplayerxd  +   1404d ago
Me too, especially with that reviewer they got for gamespot. I can smell that 8/10 a mile away.

You would think it would have been a job requirement for these article writers/ game reviewers.

The facts coming out after you publish a review just discredits your publications, maybe time for new management.
PirateThom  +   1404d ago
Stop bringing up the fact reviewers haven't played the game, they obviously know more than people who have played the game.
rdgneoz3  +   1404d ago
I love how people complain about the damage, but don't realize that you might have to pay to repair it. Which having it unlocked at level 0 would kind of kill the funds of the new players who are just learning.

Also, I would love for reviewers to post a pic of their profile in GT5, to show what A-Spec/B-Spec level they are and how many races they've won and cars they have. I swear half of them played the game for a few hours only before writing their reviews.
raztad  +   1404d ago
Agree about reviewers posting their profile (too bad is not happening). Reviewing GT5 after just a couple of hours worth gametime, it is like reviewing Fallout 3 just when you get out of the vault 101 for the first time.
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1404d ago
Exactly.
Apocalypse Shadow  +   1404d ago
it's just a great sim driving game.

if the current meta score means that GT5 is a flop,then ALL games on the competitors system with that rating and below are flops.

the funny thing is that if GT5 outsells the competition's offering,it will be the most hilarious thing that a flop outsold the "definitive racer."...but then,prologue already did that.

but what does that say about uncharted 2?
http://www.google.com/url?s...
if uncharted 2 is at 96,does that mean all games under it,including the competitor's offering,are FLOPS?

does it mean,gtaiv,the highest rated game this gen,is the best?and all games under it are flops?

wake up haters....GT5 is the shizznit.no negative downplaying will stop it like heavenly sword.this isn't 2006-2007 anymore.what you haters say has no effect.we bought it or are buying it.

Nah, that means you're looking way too much into metacritic ratios and give too much of a crap about others' opinions.

It also means that in your agenda, you went as far as to compare different genre titles.

Wake up, everyone is entitled to their own views. People think the game didn't deliver, then so be it. You can still have fun with your copy of the game.

The reviews should have been embargo'd until next week. This game is huge and this is not the first time I've heard that its so big that not even a single 10 page review would be enough to full access the games pro's and cons.
IGOTEVERYSYSTEM  +   1404d ago
I'm away for thx giving and I brought my ps3 over moms house. I played gt5 with a controller because my racing cockpit is at my house . This game is definitly a 9 or better . It's not for a little kid it's for men who love cars! It's the shhhhh
tiamat5  +   1404d ago
Another 9 to add to the board
cvflyboy  +   1404d ago
Good review... Its a shame more game sites don't have staff that actually value cars like us motor heads do.. That Gamespot review really made me rethink how many games I passed on because of a bad review by someone who doesn't know anything about that specific genre. Gt5 is for people who love cars not casual gamers. Its a type of game you play for a long time and if your playing on anything less then a 900 degree wheel your really not getting the full package and I also hope these journalist are using a wheel while reviewing the game because there is no way you should judge the physics with out using one.
