Video Review: Gran Turismo 5 | TheGamerAccess

A seemingly few hundred delays and 5 years in the making, GT5 is finally playable and on store shelves. Gran Turismo 5 isn't the best racing game available on the Playstation 3, but it is probably one of the best simulators that you will find.

They should let people that actually like and appreciate racing to review this game.

lowcarb2667d ago

I would trust this site over someone just saying it's a 10 because there a fan of the series. Reviews are no more then opinions but in the case of this game it's far from perfect.

Game-ur2667d ago

I remember the site admitting they prefer Arcade racers, so I wouldn't trust their opinions.

The problem with a lot of this reviews is that they are done by kids too young to drive, and don’t understand driving in the first place.

Kaneda2666d ago

That is what I thought.. when I watched this review.. I think he got bored hitting gas and brake and when he played racing game.

Holy crap dude!!!, the conspiracy has gone global, Illuminati, Freemasons, the Vatican...they're all in on it, and I think I just figured it...they all work for M.S!!!

"seemingly a few hundred delays"; UMMMMM no, and this was all I needed to read. To bad it was the first sentence.:P

VictoriousB132667d ago

He was joking around you sensitive fanboy.

Bathyj2667d ago

Yeah ,but Domers got a good point.

Nearly every review has started this way. "After 5 long years...."
Always on a negetive which are few (and in this case irrelvant as it pertains to the quality of the game,) insteady of a positive which are numerous.

Its like every review starts 2 points down and then has to prove itself from there.

Shame about the std model cars. The premium ones make them look so bad!

You won't find real crash damage in a racing sim. You'll have to go to an arcade game for that. Ironically.

I heard it was an issue with licensing or something.

The Meerkat2667d ago (Edited 2667d ago )

Crashing is very much part of racing.
Without the threat of crashing there is no danger, so the excitement is reduced.
(i.e. War would be easy if it wasn't for the dying)

For any racing sim to be accurate crashing HAS to be there.

Ducky2667d ago (Edited 2667d ago )

Well damage models are more like having limbs flying off in a War game.
i.e. a frag gernade goes off nearby and now you must continue fighting with one arm =/

I know that some licence tests disqualify you for crashing, and from what people have said, higher-level races also do something similar?
So there is an incentive to stay on the road.

Anyways, the review wasn't too bad. The, the guy kinda drives like me when I'm angry.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2667d ago

I know that crashing has to be there. What I'm saying is that there are no racing sims that portray realistic damage on cars when they do crash. I heard that it's because game developers aren't allowed to do it because of licensing agreements or something.

we live in a society where burnout defined the crash style in racing game. just like michael bay define the real world.


JacobIsHollywood2667d ago

*double sigh*

Michael Bay made a good movie once.

Unfortunately for him, most people are aware that J.J. Abrams wrote the script for that movie. ;)

JackBNimble2667d ago


I'm not sure I understand what you're saying ( friday/drinking)

Are you saying you would like to see burn out stile crashes in GT5?

I will responed to that as if that is what you are saying:
But then that would make GT5 an arcade experience not a sim and you probably wouldn't get very far before exploding.
