FiringSquad: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue First Impressions/Preview

Sony has a system selling quadruple-A, driving simulation that turns the volume up to eleven. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is that impressive. Remember when FiringSquad reviewed GT3 and said it was the most fun they've had in a long time? Gran Turismo 5 brings that level of excitement back to the series. Part of this excitement comes from the fact that Polyphony Digital includes three of the hottest cars on the planet in this demo, the BMW 135i, the Mitsubishi Evo X, and the new Nissan GT-R.

I think it is amazing this is the kind of games we are getting within two years of launch of a "difficult to develop for" console. Since GT 4 surpassed even GT 3, I am just dying to know what GT 6 can do beyond GT 5. If this is the prologue demo (demo of a preview), I can't wait for the full game (hopefully with damage modeling).

the more and more I play the demo, I am actually thinking of putting down 40 to get GT5 Prologue aka GT5 enhanced preview demo.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

I've never bought a Prologue game before, but I dont think I can wait this time. Well see.

From what i looked at this game seems more complete and more effort it seems to use the Ps3 to the max which i like. This is a must buy and hopefully it shows developers what they can do with their games on the ps3 which will help us out who own ps3's.

the demo is simply amazing, every time i fire my ps3 up, stick the demo on i swear i find myself just smiling in ore at the screen as i am driving around Suzuka.

it's simply jaw dropping everything about it handling, graphics, racing physics - incredible !!
if i do have a slight niggle, i stress slight it's the sound of screeching tires, at this demo stage it just doesn't sound right

i do need to invest in a good racing wheel as altho it's good with a pad i expect the exerience to improve tenfold with a good racing wheel.
Since i have mapped the accelerate and brake to the outer triggers as the default buttons just doesn't feel right it certainly has added to the experience.

the thought of 16 player online racing on tracks like Daytona just fill me with joyous anticipation, i cannot wait for the Prologue version never mind the full retail version.

I love Sega Rally and the whole arcade racing experience but playing the GT5 demo just highlights you cannot beat the realistic racer and GT5 is shaping up to be the pinnacle of that genre

happy days !!!!! (i am smiling)
