MMGN: Gran Turismo 5 is the real driving simulator, and then some. As a driving simulator it’s fantastic, bar the damage models. The cars look awesome, they handle realistically and there’s a vast range to choose from. There are all types of different races to test your skills and stacks of content that’ll ensure Gran Turismo 5 is spinning in your console for months to come. It struggles a little outside of driving, with terrible menus and some inconsistent visuals to go with the authentic 200 premium cars and some lifelike locations. First impressions don’t do the game any justice, as it starts slowly and boring. To be fully appreciated, Gran Turismo 5 needs at least 5 hours of your time, and only starts getting better from there on in. Gran Turismo 5 is an exhilarating racing simulator, that encompasses the spirit of motorsport like no other game.
