My wife scored me a 7 last night :( well it's better than a 4 :) No Ambien before sex.

Off topic I know but it seems to be ok on N4G lately. Besides aren't you guys a little tired of the war?

What's a "Wife"?

Is that like Wi Fi?

Motorola2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

LOL ^ I see what you did there. And what war? I just see a bunch of fanboys approving a bunch of GT5 reviews that are under 8.

Since they don't want to be bothered to play it for more than 5 hours and unlock at least level 10 or higher, they'll just make up some random, arbitrary reasons why the game is a "disappointment", and then give it the same score that some other hack-ass reviewer did -- and for many of the same lazy-ass reasons as well (7 seems to be a common score here).

Shit reviews like this make me want the game even more, because the actual commentary from people who have played the game as it is intended to be played, and have invested more than a few hours and levels into it, can attest that YES, GT:5 lives up to the hype.

"Since they don't want to be bothered to play it for more than 5 hours and unlock at least level 10 or higher"

I'm sorry but, that doesn't really help GT5 now does it?

Armyntt2457d ago

I see a bunch of articles being approved for 10's from nonsense sites. So it goes both ways. If we accept the 10's from blogs(which i personally hate blogs, they ruin real journalism)we have to accept the 7's.

ryuzu2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

Oh nvm - thought this was a dupe but not.

r.

Hideo_Kojima2457d ago

@Armyntt Blogs ruin journalism and other sites like IGN don't?

Armyntt2456d ago

I do not agree with everything IGN says or does but maybe im just naive but i do believe IGN is not some evil entity who goes to the highest bidder. I also think they have the gamers in mind with their pieces.

wrong reply

XRider2457d ago

I guess Wi Fi is kinda like a wife there's a NAT error when trying to communicate.

DigitalAnalog2456d ago

For every GT5 review that comes to this site. All you have to do is press "Ctrl+F" with the keywords: AI or damage. You'll automatically realize who's playing the game and who isn't. For example, this particular review:

"Besides the visible damage so small that they might as well be dropped altogether. You can slam into a barrier at 200km / h, without resulting in more than a marginal bias in the bumper."

There you go. Another idiot who got trolled by Kaz.

thorough professional review /s /poo

ExPresident2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

And yet the last paragraph says this:

"Especially sad is that the game is unable to convey either collisions or damage to any acceptable manner."

How professional can it be when it hasn't properly reviewed the damage that occurs at higher levels, which has been proven via videos and player accounts on this site? I beg to differ on the term 'professional'.

Edit -

Lol at the disagree's. How about post why you disagree since its evident that this review isn't complete.

LilMissGoddess2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

i disagreed simply because i shouldn't need to be a level 40 for damage, i should be able to "receive" damage the min after i install the game.

gran turismo prides itself on realism, but in real life trust me, whether i'm a driver of over 15 yrs, or a new driver of one year we both have a wreck guess what we both have DAMAGE!

i can't say well im sorry dude im only level 39 so i don't get damage, but you, you are level 40 so i am sorry your car is totaled, but mine is still perfect.

lol wouldn't the insurance rates go through the roof at level 40! hahahahaha

ExPresident2457d ago

@LilMissGoddess

I could only imagine the complaints people would field over this game if they suffered damage the minute they installed the game and couldn't afford to fix their new car before the next race. We'd see a rash of ...

"omfg I cant drive cause imz not l33tz and [email protected] @fford to buy sh!tz"

Hideo_Kojima2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

Why do you want damage? What would it actually change?

If your a good driver and don't want to be babysat than just speed through the first couple of licenses and you will get to level 20 in no time.

If you are a noob driver than just put your ass down and learn to drive without crashing so that your ready for when damage will ruin your race don't worry about damage yet its not burnout.

Level 10
-Slight Cosmetic Damage
-Damage is magically repaired after a race
Level 20
-Stronger Cosmetic Damage
-Slight Mechanical Damage
-You have to pay for repairs
Level 40
-Realistic Damage
-You have to pay for repairs

I am scared of reaching level 20 and having to pay for damage apparently it can cost a virtual fortune for the expensive cars to be repaired.

twoface2456d ago

LilMis,

In real life, you get badly hurt by just one bullet and first aid kits don't fully restore your health in a matter of minutes.

LilMissGoddess2456d ago (Edited 2456d ago )

sorry twoface i play real shooters not call of dookie, yea a bullet i the face on GRAW or rainbow six does mean death

hahhahahahahahhahahhah obviously you can't read there again level 40 "for REAL damage"

Hideo_Kojima2456d ago

What do you mean I can't read I wrote that myself...
But its level 20 before you have to pay for repairs and your engine starts messing up.

It's like a battle of reviews! Flurry of 9s followed by 7s. N4G contributors working real hard.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

Indeed, but is good, multiple accounts of haters of GT5 are collaborating, submitting and commenting only in GT5 articles.

N4G is dominated by Gran Turismo 5, thanks to the collaboration of the Haters. Black Ops, the weekly fake sales charts, Kinect are in the shadows because of GT5.

Hideo_Kojima2457d ago

Lol at the people who said GT5 would be overshadowed by Kinect.

GT5 is getting average reviews and there are still lodes more articles about GT5 features than there are articles about Kinect.

reckoner2456d ago

@Guntrol
Since that's the way to calculate how much one thing is overshadowing another: The number of articles it gets on N4G.

earbus2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

A review like this makes me want to play it more where ps3 based reviews give it near perfect score are selling a product still waiting for my bravia promo copy in the mail.
