Lazygamer's Gran Turismo 5 Review – Here’s To The Dreamers

Lazygamer.net's Nick De Bruyne, raised on a diet of gasoline and engine grease, reviews highly anticipated sim racer GT5 after spending a considerable amount of time with the game. What did he, as an enthusiast, think of it?

"As lifelong petrol-heads, songs like Radar Love sit comfortably in our music libraries, waiting for their chance to be freed on some lonely highway somewhere, when the lanes are empty and the right foot feels heavy. It is, for car lovers like us, that games like Gran Turismo first came into existence and truth be told, it’s still a mystery to me how it caught on with casual gamers as well.

The important thing however, is that Gran Turismo 5 is finally out and after spending an entire week with Gran Turismo 5, we are happy to finally bring you the long awaited and in-depth review of Gran Turismo 5." (Gran Turismo 5, PS3) 8.9/10

I just want this for the Karts, man!
granthinds  +   1364d ago
To be fair and honest with you, the karts were my favourite part, unexpectedly awesome :)
AKS  +   1364d ago
A special event called "Grand Tour" that takes you through a small series of races through Italy has been my favorite part so far. Jeff Gordon's driving school has easily been my personal low point of the game, the only part of GT5 I've disliked. Overall it's been bloody fantastic.

Excellent and comprehensive review. It's not perfect but a good ride. If I can say that.

....a lot like my ex-girlfriend!

The kart's are awesome, but I cant put aside my disappointment. @Grant: With all the delays, amount of production time and hype, it should have been perfect. A monumental fail in my mind.
granthinds  +   1364d ago
I agree, just scared to verbalise my honest opinion on N4G with all these PS3 fanboys around salivating to bubble me down because I have my own opinion. Sigh.
granthinds  +   1364d ago
See what I mean? 6 Disagrees for saying I have my own opinion. Just saying.
Tazz1992  +   1364d ago
State your opinion without bringing fanboys up, when you do that all you do is bring attention to them.
OliverKO  +   1364d ago
Hyperbole like 'monumental fail' isn't justified - it's an excellent game that had no chance of living up to the hype. Perfection isn't possible, even with so many years in production.
WobblyOnion  +   1364d ago
Yeah, I'm inclined to agree. It may be disappointing, but with the fact that it offers superlative simulation, it can hardly be called a "monumental fail."

It isn't perfect. But guess what no game is. Perfection is hard to achieve my friend.
So you expected it to be perfect and it wasn't, how does that go from there to 'monumental fail'?
The only fail is your argument.

good review but why not a 9.0?
WobblyOnion  +   1364d ago
I think it's to signify that it *just* falls short of greatness.
Apone  +   1364d ago
The karts are great, just like everything else!
But i'm having trouble with that second special event, the Volkswagen vans on the top gear track... A pain in the #ss ;-)

Yeesh...worried about the GT fanboys hahaha. Haven't played this title yet. Never really been a fan of the series but I think that I'd like to try this one out. Just to see the fail part of it and the so called awesomeness.

yea, you gave them the business.

One of the better reviews of GT5 so far. I hope IGN is taking notes, because it's clear the author actually played the game extensively. It's for lack of a better word, a comprehensive review that weighs up the pros and the cons of GT5 - nice work.

I would agree with most of what the Gran Turismo 5 review said, I did really dislike the karting though. It made earning money any other way totally pointless and left me basically farming Karting mode for cash, yawn.

Here's the article I'm talking about

That might be the most moronic way to get cash in GT5. That is far too much work. Why not just get some silver/gold licenses and win a race or two?

Very good review, and in depth. some points I agree with, others I don't, but it's your opinion definitely one of the better reviews Ive seen
