PSM3: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Review - PS3's ultimate tech demo proves beauty is in the eye of the key-holder

PSM3 writes: "Gran Turismo 5 Prologue might only be a demo, but it's worth £25 alone to justify the £1000 you splurged on a PS3 and a 1080p HDTV. Prologue - the preview version of 2009's full-on GT5 - looks even better than the stills on these pages. It's the game you'll use to convince confused loved ones about the power of PS3.

The demo may have been available in Japan for a while, but thanks to the new Drift Mode and two-player split-screen, the UK version is the definitive package.

Screeching down the course carved out of a mountain in Eiger Nordwand feels great. Crowds mill around trackside taking snapshots as you speed by, creating a real sense of race day action. Taking to the narrow streets of London in a Mini Cooper S genuinely excites as you whizz past recognisable landmarks like the neon Sanyo signs of Piccadilly Circus. And, as the interiors of every car have been recreated perfectly, you get to experience driving cars that you're unlikely to ever afford in real life."
