Giant Bomb - Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Review

From Ryan Davis of Giant Bomb...

"The things about Polyphony Digital's driving simulation series that have kept me at bay over the years–the self-serious tone, the unapologetic driving model–seem to have been softened up a little bit with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, at least enough to allow me to appreciate the painstaking detail that goes into making what is essentially a car commercial in motion. As a taste of what the full version of Gran Turismo 5 will offer, GT5 Prologue is successful–I'm now more excited about the release of Gran Turismo 5 than I've been for any other Gran Turismo release. The thing is, Sony's charging $39.99 for what is essentially an elaborate demo. As pretty as everything in GT5 Prologue is, there's just not a whole lot to it."

reading the review, I couldn't help but picture R. Davis and Gerstmann sitting there spilling donut sprinkles and chocolate milk all over the controllers, while saying "The thing is, Sony’s charging $39.99 for what is essentially an elaborate demo. As pretty as everything in GT5 Prologue is, there’s just not a whole lot to it..."

There's not a whole lot to it...?

Ummm...ok, if you weren't on a sugar high you would think otherwise. Translation: I suck at these games.

They didn't care for the game. So you attack them because they are fat? I'm a big Nintendo fan, and when they gave Brawl a 4 out of 5, I didn't insult there weight, I understood that it was their own opinion.

Although, I do have to admit, picturing Ryan Davis and Jeff Gerstmann spilling donut sprinkles on the controllers is pretty funny.

How can they call this an "elaborate demo" when it has full online racing and more cars than $60 games like Need for Speed?
