Gran Turismo 5 Prologue earns plenty of kudos for elevating the series to the new platform. Despite offering only a fraction of what the final game should have in store, it's is definitely a great racing game. For fans of the sport and especially for purist drivers, the Gran Turismo name is synonymous with realism. Thankfully, Prologue is easily the most beautiful and engaging racer on the PS3.
The lack of tracks and obvious multiplayer problems drag it down a notch. For gamers who found the earlier Gran Turismo games difficult to play, this version won't change your mind-even with the options to lessen the simulation elements, Prologue will never be an arcade racer. Overall, Prologue is an excellent introduction to what awaits.
