Gran Turismo Sport review | Gaming Trend

After a long wait, Gran Turismo Sport is here, and it is racing perfection beyond measure. This is the best racing game that I have ever played, overflowing in beauty, grace, playability, and precision. Driving a go-kart, a fusion-engine concept race car, or a standard Ford Focus all provide a wealth of fun and unique challenges. Gran Turismo Sport is a triumph, and will be played voraciously by racing fans for years and years to come.

That's something to show.

Edit : I was surprised by this review.

If hardcore online racing is your thing it is freaking amazing. People who are complaining just wanted GT7...which this was never meant to be.

darthv722235d ago

Can you blame them? I mean we have become accustomed to some pretty steady constants out of Sony and PD. They have given the fans 2 GT games per system but this time they threw all of that to the side. When people count of these things to be there and they arent then...

I understand they wanted to do something different, but maybe they could have done it AFTER giving the long time fans the fan service they expect (that is GT7). Until the name was revealed, we all pretty much assumed THIS WAS GT7. Not only were the fans let down by it not being GT7 but that this may also break the other tradition of there being 2 GT games this gen (like previous).

so the long term fans complaining have every right to complain. The trend of making things that werent E-Sports before but now they are is happening more often. Just look at the articles regarding SP games. GT has been one of my favorite SP based racing series since the first game and now that has changed.

The problem is the lack of cars tracks and SP, if this game had more content it would be perfect.

Rimeskeem2236d ago

I assume this game will be a lot like DriveClub where content will be added as it continues (hopefully for free). I’m glad they released it because knowing Polyphony it would have taken them years to make more content for it. What they releases is a polished race simulator. Now they just need to add.

Tobse2235d ago

I really enjoy driveclub right now but I hate all the additional dlc you have to buy

IamTylerDurden12235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

GTS absolutely nailed the two most important things, the gameplay and visuals. The driving and the graphics are both sublime. The game is stunning on Pro.


Driveclub is a fantastic game atm but u are way off if u complain about having to buy the dlc. Loads of free content was given and the season pass which was always a steal is now dirt cheap. U can basically have the entire game plus all dlc for proverbial peanuts. It's a ridiculous deal on what was already a great buy.

jukins2236d ago

Ehh they polyphony and Sony knows the majority of long term gt players are eager to be online and test against other equally skilled drivers and push themselves to be one of the best in the world against real people possibly leading to real racing career.

Given how gt6 was supported I have no doubts that this game will be constantly filled with content.

Kribwalker2235d ago

but GT6 gave free dlc because it was backed by MTs to fund it. i find it hard to believe they will be giving loads of free content with no way to recoupe cost. I see them adding MTs if they add everything for free.

shuvam092236d ago

I wish they had provided Tourist Trophy for free with this...
But licensing issues, I guess...

sprinterboy2235d ago

Totally agree, day 1 for me still though but what I scratch my head at is why didn't they include a track editor of some sort for people to upload tracks like monza, spa etc. Obviously they wouldnt be premium tracks but they could of had something in place for us create tracks within a section of the game via ps4 and PC editing

frostypants2235d ago

It has SP just no SP career. Which is fine IMO since this was clearly marketed as an online game. Maybe they'll expand on it later.

The_KELRaTH2235d ago

Not only that but the online "Sportsmanship" doesn't work.

Today tried 5 online races and in all but 1 I was deliberately bumped off the track as it seems there's no penalty for side swiping but there IS for going off the track. In it's current state it's utterly pointless.

VariantAEC2234d ago

When someone bumps you off the track both players are penalized...
I don't get why you are penalized for being shoved out of bounds, but rest assured the guy who screwed you didn't get off scott-free.

SurgicalMenace2235d ago

Listen, a good game is a good game. Until you're not just sitting on your computer demanding more content, like some gluttonous fiend, and work to create your own games, just enjoy what's given. Where did all these spoiled do nothing's come from? Polyphony has earned to right to release what they want, as they've sustained through a massive closing of studios industry wide. All I hear about is content and you've not even tried what's available, so if it had more cars you'd do what? You would dedicate you life to driving all 500+ of them? No. You find 10 you like and stick to them, as most of us would. You're a critique with no experience, commenting on the review of someone else's take on the game, what's your contribution? If you don't like it, dont buy it. Otherwise, there is no problem.

strifeblade2235d ago

it has half players racing than forza, un vr mode you only race one car, no weather effects, baked lighting...

IRetrouk2235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

Wrong, up to 24 racers online and 30 against the ai on endurance races, no weather effects is right other than standing water for now, the lighting isnt baked at all, its still dynamic its the time of day thats not.

So those looking for an arcade experience, Forza 7 and PC 2. Those looking for serious racing sim, GT Sport.

DarXyde2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

It seems like there are members of your community that would disagree. Some of you call Forza and Project Cars a sim, others call them arcade racers.

You lot should probably come to a consensus.

KickSpinFilter2236d ago

IRacing Sim
PC2, Forza, GTSport Light Sim
Driveclub ArcadeSim
Forza H, Arcade

S2Killinit2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

You wont learn to drive playing Forza that’s for sure.

Army_of_Darkness2236d ago (Edited 2236d ago )

Curious, but what exactly makes gt sport more of a sim driver above the the rest( Forza, project cars) ? Serious question cause I can't tell the difference beyond the graphics, content and exclusivity...
Also, playing racing sims don't make you a better driver cause I'm a great driver in real life but only mediocre to crappy in racing games.

bolimekurac2236d ago

its funny how in 2017 people dont know that you can turn assists off in forza and make it as hard as they like

It's slightly more of a sim than Forza but not Project Cars. The real sim racing titles are on the PC such as iRacing and Assetto Corsa. The reason why GT gets so much attention is marekting and its history. Back when Gran Turismo came out there really wasn't much competition at the time. It still does not use collision physics correctly. Tire flex and other in-depth analysis are not as simulated as Project Cars 2 either but I still put it slightly ahead of Forza due to how well the car behaves with the surface. Both GT and Forza are very playable on a controller as well which goes to show how accomodating each is.
