The much-anticipated Gran Turismo Sport pulled up to the starting line on October 17. It's been four years since Polyphony Digital and Sony have released a Gran Turismo title.
I'm tempted to get this for the VR alone, it looks kinda mind blowing imo https://www.youtube.com/wat...
The VR version looks good, but a shame the tech is quite where it needs to be. 1 other car on track isn't good enough really. Nice demo though
It does look very good visually but the limitations is really not doing VR much justice. One on one racing and not even able to race another person online. They got it working but with huge concessions.
Thanks for being a beta tester. Hopefully VR is where I want it to be in 5-10 years before I make the jump
Np, I've been messing around with VR headsets since the DK1 came out, and although I'm certainly not one of those people that goes around preaching that VR is the future, I have to say there are some amazing experiences to be had if you know what to buy and what to avoid.
Nothing beta about RE7 in VR, you're missing out.
Ouch. Lots of 7/10s
The Forza Killer is just a filler.
Why do we need a Forza killer? When it has yet to kill GT in the first place lol. The last TWO Forza games combined barely sold as much as GT6 ALONE and that's not even one of the highest performing games in the series. Lighting and driving physics still trail behind it. They're not even competing on the same platform, so that's a pointless statement.
@ShinMaster. So its not comparable because it's not competing on the same platform, yet you're comparing past iterations of Gt saying it killed Forza. Say no more, Just take the L.
There are plenty of 9/10's too.
Yeah but it's been stuck in the 70s on metacritic. 76 based on critic reviews. FM7 is a full 10 points ahead of it.
@Rex, Lets be real. I think FM7 should be knocked 5 points for having microtranscations and lootboxes.
It's most likely going to outperform the competition anyway.
I'll stick to mario karts thanks.
you do that kid.
I will be son
Gah I wish games rental still existed in Ireland, I really want to get this one but poor reviews are putting me off. Love that it has split-screen too, in PC2/Driveclub they really missed a trick there. Plus, for all the reviewers' misgivings I really do like the idea of online - focus. It's typically such an afterthought in racing games.
The online races i have played were very competative and nice. Not a single crash fest yet. Very surprised.
The driving experience is bundles of fun - even more so than what I remember from the previous GT games. To the point that I actually enjoy the endurance race (against AI) because time just flies, whereas I thought they were a bit of a drag in the previous games. The online is also well done, but currently the Sports Mode is set so that there are only three races for an entire week, and that can get boring playing the same three races. The reviews mostly agree on the driving and online being pretty good. Its just the content, notably the number of tracks, that's a bit low. I guess it depends on how much faith you have in PD - whether they'll add new content in a timely fashion or not.
Online an afterthought in most racing games? I'm assuming it has been a good number of years since you played a racing game?
I have heard a few people mention that it lacks content, for me that is a real deal breaker. I would get bored very quickly with limited content. I might borrow this or rent it instead.
Yeah do that. The car collection is lacking for sure but the cars feel so good to drive it's hard to care. I'm still working on my first car, a Focus ST, even though I bought the special edition and have 12 other cars and most are more powerful. Just for the fun of it. The game play alone has tempered some of my disappointment with the lack of cars and some of the more detailed customization.
Lol that Forbes adblocker makes them look normal. I used to think Forbes was this giant. The adblocker really humanizes them.
deary deary 7.1 out of a possible 10 Metacritic 76 At least you can fire up driveclub and watch the rain on your windscreen
Seems like the only thing stoping it from being a 10/10 is lack of single player career mode and more cars. GT 7 should be promising if they build upon GTS
Lets hope that is the plan. BTW, what album cover is that?
2Pacalypse Now literally his name lol.
Now thats funny. That was my era too, and I still missed it.
Metacritic takes them seriously enough 😉
Go read the customer reviews on Amazon, best buy and Gamestop not looking good for GT sport. 143 customer reviews on Amazon avg. score 1.7 out of 4 stars.
The only issue I have with that is that the game is fun and polished. Seeing reviews like that after I've actually been playing it confuses me a little. The game is a gem. It might not have everything people want but what it has is top of the line.
I think once Drive Club came around it set a new standard for PS4 racers as far as refreshment. Now if it gets the GT polish and car licensing...then it'll be the premier racer.
At 30 frames...
Whatever looks good.
