GT5: Sublime or Ridiculous?

TSA Writes:
It’s been over three weeks now since Gran Turismo 5 spent a seemingly never-ending 61 minutes installing its way into my life. For the last ten of those minutes it was teasing me with a remaining time of three seconds. I guess my expecations that GT5 exists in the same time continuum as the rest of us should have already been crushed by its extended development. Yet somehow all its ‘interactive teaser trailers’, GT HD Concept, GT5 Prologue and the Time Trial demo a year ago, seem to have altered my perception of the wait. (Gran Turismo 5, PS3)

GT5 isnt perfect
far from it
but its still the best racer i have played

"GT wanted me to do something I couldn’t. It was urging me to set my home page colour, profile picture, etc., only setting a picture was impossible because I hadn’t taken any yet."

i just pressed X twice
bought a car
and started racing ...
i didnt fill in anything

meh... well i just picked up F1 09 only to find out u can't race in Spec A. i feel sad now. it took me 10 hrs today to get it. )x

that was pretty realistic,apart for the lack of damage. the poster of that vid apparently doesn't know about the laws of physics

Have a look at this loony crash. This happened in real life and looks more outlandish than anything in that GT5 vid.

Sublime? No chance. Well at least maybe it is for N4G users. GT5 is so bland i found it hard to stay awake so i decided to sell it and went back to playing the best racing game this gen and maybe of all time, Forza 3.
PirateThom  +   1661d ago
That's cool.

GT5 isn't for everyone, if you prefer more arcade style racers, Forza 3 is definitely the best option, Forza 2 if you prefer sims.

Terror_B + 1d 1h ago The Xbox 360 is without doubt, the best console this gen.

Thank you MS.

this is a comment from terror b ok it is clear your a 360 fanboy so stop trolling
karl  +   1661d ago
just admit it.. u couldn't even complete a lap in gt5 soo u went back to forza =)
demonddel  +   1661d ago
in between both not ridiculously bad and not sublime good and where is the fucking trucks so i can complete the race hope i dont have to unlock them
jessupj  +   1661d ago
No, he's just a child. It's a pitty his immaturity has restricted him of being able to experience the best games this generation.
Drac  +   1661d ago
demonddel if your asking about the pickup's then I got mine for the used car dealer, may have to check back a few times before one turns up.
nix  +   1661d ago
demon, i got mine when completed one of the stages.. don't know which one though.
RememberThe357  +   1660d ago
I think thats exactly it. Immature mind tend to blindly follow easy thought patterns.

@ terror_b
Terror_b how can you play gt5 when u don't have a ps3?
It's like me saying froza3 is shit when I haven't played it and don't have a xb360.
kneon  +   1660d ago

Finish the licenses, one of them unlocks the truck you need. I can't remember which it was except that I know it was before I got my super license.

i'm not going to make any comparative comments or conjure any superlatives... all i'll say is: it's a cracking game

i have to say though... to complain about unlockable horns IS ridiculous.

Probably one of the better articles Ive read but my only complaint is why complain about the installation im not sure if that is even worth talking about in any game.

Sublime was an aweome band. They had several songs which are quite popular and still get a lot of radio play today. MRMagoo123 obviously has excellent taste in music.

The feeling I get when I drive around Nürburgring Nordschleife in my SLS AMG is a sublime feeling, not a ridiculous one.
davekaos  +   1661d ago
i must admit i cant get enough of the Nürburgring. i must have done atleast 100 laps round it since i bought the game
karl  +   1661d ago
agree... completely suck at it.. but

i been trying to nail nurburgring without a racing line for a while now... but its so long that eventually i screw up somewhere...

obviously this is just with supercars... where u need to continuously pay attention to your speed
d3nworth1  +   1660d ago
Yeah those corners jump outta nowhere
Lirky  +   1661d ago
Just think the *updates* have not arrived YET!!!! all sorts of game updates that'll improve the gt5 experience.

I hope customization get an update from adding decals/designs that u win from races and other events to having an open-shop where ucan sell and buy decals custom ones u can make, inappropriate ones would get deleted auto since how it would be moderated i guess
waltyftm  +   1661d ago
My new GOTY.
sweettooth  +   1661d ago
yes GT5 my goty
offdawall  +   1661d ago
honestly at this point it doesnt matter .... if you check vgchartz you'll see that GT5 has sold over 3.6 million in 3 weeks that is more than fortza3 life to date ... IN 3 WEEKS!!! its a major success for polyph and im sure their already working on GT6 lol the truth is GT is ahousehold name and will sell big reguardless ... peace out :D
waltyftm  +   1661d ago
Please dont say the F word.
Ven1000  +   1661d ago
Actually by Dec 6th (2 weeks) GT5 has sold over 5.5 million. VGChartz is way off. GT5 can easily be over 6 million by new year.

GT 5 is amazing,Go buy this game people.
Lirky  +   1661d ago
Wondering why ppl disagreed when i said that the upcoming patches for gt5 will improve it to make it even awesomer.

Like i cant wait for rewind and fastforwarding for replays so taking photos u can take those epic jumps and stuff.

The only thing i got against gt5 is the B-5 license.. its to damn hard lol
Other than that its amazing.
Lirky  +   1661d ago
i got my ic license intercontinental license. However it takes practice and time to get golds which i think are harder to get.
MeNoRasta  +   1661d ago
Any tips for the B-5 license? been on it for 3hrs now >_<
MRMagoo123  +   1660d ago
dont suck, hows that ?
nefertis  +   1661d ago
gt5 is full of content no car game has ever deliver this must content, and next week Sony is giving away free cars so everybody can start off with fast cars. I want a free bugatti veyron or I hope kaz add the SSC ultimate aero soon that car is the only one that rival the old bugatti veyron.
VonBraunschweigg  +   1661d ago
Sublime where it matters most, behind the wheel. With a Logitech Driving Force GT and a Fanatec wheelstand, racing GT5's version of the Nordschleife can be pure drivingbliz:) Sublime and addictive.

The only way to experience this game is by playing it with a Logitech wheel. I also use the Driving Force GT and it is hands down the best driving game I have ever played.
billulsund  +   1660d ago
x 1,000. In my opinion using a a wheel is the only way to play. I also have the Driving Force GT and mine is attached to a Playseat Evolution driving chair. Having the wheels and pedals securely placed in the right position while sitting in a racing seat really helps to enhance the experience and makes it easier to have a light touch on the pedals.

@menorasta i dont really know helpful tips i just got a bronze on it practice makes perfect :).

outwar6010  +   1660d ago
lolz weird times that we live in
outwar6010  +   1660d ago
i got this today after long anticipation only to cry an hour into playing it the graphics were not consistent some of the tracks look low res .........if this is the product of 6 years or whatever i hav to ask the developers one thing what were you playing while you were suppose to be making this? id rather play that
dragon82  +   1660d ago
They realesed 4 games during that "6 years" everyone keeps ripping them for.
outwar6010  +   1660d ago
and it shows it looks like some tracks and car models have been recycled onto gt5
Strikepackage Bravo  +   1660d ago
Sadly GT5 is a complete joke 60 minutes to install, totally illogical menu systems, the game is just a complete mess, and we waited 6 years for this...

Just imagine what Turn 10 could do if they had 5 or 6 years to develop FM4.
BeAGamer  +   1660d ago
you need to get out more
your life has been marred by trolling on an internet site
goodness you're sad

kneon  +   1660d ago
I think my install was "only" about 45 minutes. Maybe my upgraded 640gb drive is faster than the authors. But really does it matter that much, it's not like you couldn't be doing something else while you wait.

The menus could be a bit better but they are far from illogical. My only real complaint is not having the tuning option available at the beginning of each race. I'd like to be able to tune the car for each track in a championship series.

The driving though is superb, and that's all that really matters
d3nworth1  +   1660d ago
My only complaint is that I can't find a goddamn pickup truck.

"Just imagine what Turn 10 could do if they had 5 or 6 years to develop FM4."
It's ALREADY 6 years after FM 1 was released.
