anything less than a 9.9/10 for this fkn masterpiece is a lame attempt at comedy or pure hate. Truth.

If you give it a ten its just a license for developers to start doing the whole premium standard thing with all their games. NBA games with premium teams and standard teams. FPS's with premium guns and standard guns. Fighters with premium characters and standard charaters.

Great game, but I think giving it a perfect score may send out the wrong message. Lets have games with the same development effort across the board and not just 20% of it shall we?

you call a game with long loading times, extreme screan tearing, bad car models a masterpeace?

fanboy, lol

Masterpeace.?

You using a dictionary that spells automatically for you, yet, you still dont know what the word means in context..

Two bubbles.!!!

And, just to make my peace, Just buy a PS3, it is your missing piece of the puzzle.

Regards, Your Master.

Any early reviews, or reviews that have been posted almost immediately after the game has been released, have given the game a 7 or 8 out of 10 (which honestly is not a bad score at all). But lately I've noticed more "late" reviews popping up that are 9 or 10 out of 10. The game itself rewards players for playing and actually getting into the career mode, unlocking many features and generally getting a better "GT experience", rather than those who just play a few hours and then decide to write an entire synopsis of Gran Turismo as not only a game but also a simulation concept.

I'll trust the late reviews, thank you very much.

@sleepy3: If you'd actually play games carefully you'd know that you can actually divide characters in games as premium and standard. See FF13 for reference:
Important NPCs have better detailed models than "normal" people, who look generic, less detailed costumes, faces, models and more dull colours.
The same trend appears in Mass Effect or even Uncharted in some degree.
Don't be a tool man.

Less than a minute in Jessica from inidesimracing.tv talks about their upcoming review for GT5 an makes remarks about not understanding how other sites on the web could review GT5 of this size as quickly as they did. The guys from this site are pro sim racers and they will be the most harsh but at the same time the most honest.

They don't pull punches regardless of what perks they receive from people in the industry. They are sent racing rigs, which they get to keep, that cost a ton of money an they still are honest with their cons. I know because I purchased a couple of them and their opinions were spot on.

I am really looking forward to their review of this game. The guys from this show put up numbers (lap times) in games like this that most of us would not be able to match. This is all they do, playing racing games.

They dabble in other games but they are hard-hard-hardcore sim racing fans.

GT5 or god of war 3 for me

Hoje03082758d ago

GOW3 is right up there for me as well. Can't wait for next year where the competition might include KZ3, inFamous 2, The Last Guardian and possibly Uncharted 3. Not to mention Twisted Metal, Motorstorm: Apocalypse, a new MK and L.A. Noire.

PS360PCROCKS2758d ago

oh god of war...how i love thee so. Feels like forever since it released, been a long year for me. But on topic GOW III is my GOTY too.

JonnyBigBoss2758d ago

The later they come, the better they get.

PS360PCROCKS2758d ago (Edited 2758d ago )

I really like this "Polyphony Digital didn't rush it, so neither did we: our full and considered review of the most anticipated racing title of this generation."

and this made me laugh really hard:

"if you prefer to spend hours poring over which tribal-themed, dragon-tattoo decal you’re going to put on your paul walker tribute car then gran turismo 5 probably isn’t your bag."

HINDERIZATION2758d ago

i feel sorry for the poor soul who disagreed with you.

Rhythmattic2757d ago

I'm buying lots of band aids...... I drive alot during the day, only to get home and drive at night....

mastiffchild2757d ago

Thing is I predicted both the sites marking the game on dev length AND that sites would, just as they did with GTPSP, mark it down having investigated about 10% of the sodding game. Same thing-impatience in sites gives you shallow reviews.

EmperorDalek2758d ago

The more I play it the more I LOVE IT!!!

I do hope they patch on-line so we can have country against country (i.e. average times, best times, etc) and you can bet on races or at least earn some winnings.
