Paint/defend it however you want pal, it's still just a so-so racer.
blumatt  +   1747d ago
Coming from someone called "Bonerboy" Your name alone discredits you.
And what racer is better? Forza? NFS Shift? Just because you can't paint up your car all gangsta or with some ridiculous paint scheme, doesn't mean GT5 is anything less than the best racing simulator this gen.

Edit: Project Gotham is NOT a racing simulator like GT5, man. It's more of an arcade racer. You can't take a turn at 120 mph and expect to keep grip, unless of course you're in an F1 car or something. Again, Project Gotham is an arcade racer.

TDU2 is better than GT5
rjgbyrne  +   1747d ago
I disagree too, its a good upgrade from 4 but definitely NOT this gens best racing simulator. I might change my mind if they improve the game with a hefty patch or two but they won't, they'll save it for GT6. My fav. sim so far is Project Gotham 4, its a shame Bizarre are now defunct. Here's hoping Sony do the right thing and poach the team for the next GT.

Oi Vay! I must disagree with your rebuttal good sir.
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1747d ago
I agree with Bonerboy,lame username but agreeable opinion regardless.
Bonerboy  +   1747d ago
I feel "bonerboy" clearly beats out "A Living Legend" as a better username. Thanks for your support my friend as PS3 kids can be quite defensive over their precious titles. We non fanboys must stick together for the greater good of the gaming community.
The_Quiet_Man  +   1747d ago
Judging by you're comments in here I doubt you even own or played GT5. Calling out one type fanboy usually means you too are also fanboy.

They only thing people can bash GT5 for is the inconsistency between the premium cars & the standard ones (would've been nice if they were all premium but the game had to release at some stage & they still look good). I'll also add the shadows under car can be jaggy at times & the odd frame drops (no game breaking bugs).

Even with those faults GT5 is best driving simulator out there, the amount of cars, the physics & handling, precise tracks, day/night/rain, custom tracks.

I understand why people are into other racing games though, GT is not for everyone, you can't nitro your way into 1st after 3 rubbish laps, the game actually requires some skill & patience.

Movement to Preowned Section? It has nothing for me to do in it since I got all cars & all golds.
I have not driven in GT5 for 2 weeks and it appears that is going to increase unless they add some "challenging" events whereas In Forza 3 I still have only done 80% of the events after 1.25 years since release.

Lol @ the people bringing up arcade racers. Shows how much credibility your opinions have.
tsn  +   1747d ago
People still dont understand why this game isnt rated highly as a game not a simulator.. the game is that realistic being a car enthusiast myself it does take away the fun abit.

For example do you think a FPS simulator being really realistic would be fun? no imagine you getting shot in the leg you can no longer walk, imagine not being able to run fast with all that gear on imagine the recoil imagine getting shot everywhere and being in soo much pain you cant move.

This is why GT5 doesnt get rated highly by review sites because its hard and its not a arcade game.
F4sterTh4nFTL  +   1747d ago
That does not excuse it for having 80% standard cars, poor car sounds, lack of weather and night on.
..all tracks, low variety of different tracks, horrible leveling system and 100s of other annoying bugs that just bring the score down not the overrated realism aspect of GT5 which is still arcade if you ask a Real Sim Racer who plays PC Driving simulators like me.
nix  +   1747d ago
80% (1000) standard cars that are all UNIQUE WHEN IT COMES TO DRIVING.
El_Assenso  +   1747d ago
Amen to that nix!! Find me any other game that has over 1000 cars which handly UNIQUELY!! Each and everyone!! If Gran Turismo is sooo bad how come the Red Bull F1 team and Mercades as well as numerous other car makers commented on how realstic the handling of the cars and the performance is compared to real-life!!

Play the game first my friend :)

With the time,budget,apparent professionals involved it should and could have been better.
Many things lacking to be considered ultimate sim,many small but they are numerous enough to detract from the whole.The racer/sim/arcade argument is irrelevant,as they set out to be the best racing sim,and considering resources/time/final product,they failed.
In my opinion only,one not likely shared by PD.
With very limited material with which to compare,it is easy,however folly,to defend GT5.I cannot.

Gran Turismo is definitely gonna be "moving" once Shift 2 hits the market
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1747d ago
A Simulator = GT5
An Arcade with Sim Elements = Shift 2.

Does it matter? Apples and Oranges mate, it only depends on which you prefer.

I actually laughed at that, despite your trolling.
MARKUS_MAX1MUS  +   1747d ago
que the pre-rendered screenshots....

only 200 premium cars? might aswell have made them all ugly...

5 years? yeah thats why it was REVEALED at E3 2005. clearly in DEVELOPMENT before then aka 6+ years.

Sony fanboys amuse me.

I wonder if it's okay to mention that MvC3 took over 10 years to make and still managed to have less characters than MvC2. Oh wait, that kind of fanboy drivel only applies to high profile exclusives. Gotta love how GT5 seems to be the only game being hated on because of its development time. I don't think even DNF gets that kind of treatment anymore.
Masterchef2007  +   1747d ago
He sure moved a ton of units off shelves thats for sure

yup.. it did show which reviewer played the game and which one did not. it could be translated into a movement towards better reviewing system.
