The story behind this PlayStation 3-exclusive racing game is interesting: Haunted by the delays, more and more ambitious as the project progressed, and apparently it has ended up as one of history's most expensive to develop.
I appreciate. Great developed games, deserve great sales. Good job Sony.
I respect quality games "on any system", and some of you need to do the same(Nintendo Wii related).
The ridiculous claim that the visuals of NFS Hot Pursuit are superior to those of GT5 when widely available videos show the opposite means that this site instantly looses credibility with it's readers. The sad things about NFS Hot Pursuit is that not only are the visuals inferior, the rendered resolution is 1/3rd that of GT5. GT5: 1280x1080x60fps = 83 megapixels per second NFS HP: 1280x720x30fps = 27.7 megapixels per second These games aren't even in the same league.
same can be said about the upcoming fps Rage in comparisson to killzone 3
Rage doesnt run in 1080p on consoles dude
I visited the site and there is seemingly no score listed, so where does the 5/6 come from?
The dice numbers seem to indicate its score. The Harry Potter game for example has a 1 on its dice meaning 1/6. (ouch)
No idea, however some sites are like that =S. But all I wanted to know is why out of 6, that is so random. There main concern seems to be the lack of damage, which is understandable to an extent, the damage obviously isn't realistic for a number of reasons, one being the car markers told PD they couldn't use serious car damage. But it seems reviewers (and those new to the series) don't understand that this isn't GRID or DIRT (Both great games) where the damage models is one of the games' main selling points. Gran Turismo is about the driving and the detail of the car and it's surroundings and driving physics. I get the feeling it will be marked down because reviewers might continue to make this mistake.
I made a comment about this exact point yesterday although gt is a driving sim without realistic damage it's kind of foolish to put the name the real driving simulator on your box and not get docked points when the game doesn't deliver that. I alspo went on to say that there is a point where the game would become unplayable to most if they went on to add that sort of realism I went on about the ai wrecking into you and such and having to pay for a new car /repairs things like that would become infuriating this game is going to be awesome esp. with a good logitech wheel I for one am glad it doesn't have real damage because I wouldn't be able to stand the game if it did
I agree man, at the end of the day it is going to be an awsome game and it's us the gamers that win. If someone doesn't like the game then fair enough, there are other great arcade driving games out there such as Burnout and GRID, there is hours of fun to be had with those games.
well, the real driving simulator is a simulation of driving. It isn't the real crashing simulator. No where in daily routine does intentional crashing have to be a corequisite to actual driving. it's like... I suppose... Flight Simulator or Space Shuttle Simulator. It'd be foolish to dock off points to a Space Shuttle Sim if the game didn't allow you to intentionally crash the shuttle into say... Sea World upon landing approach. Afterall, it's a sim and not a space shuttle crashing sim, since in real life crashing a space shuttle is not mandatory in the astronaut profession. So... this is something I don't understand about reviewers when they review sim racing games. Arcade I can understand, but sim? The whole point is to avoid crashing yes, but visual damage isn't really necessary as long as the main point is simulating a driving experience. DiRT requires the damage because damage is almost a fundamental part of rally racing, and going back to my point, you don't need a real robust damage system in a regular sim racing game because you won't be doing destruction derby in nurburgring. The most you probably need [in a "driving" game] is tire temp, oil temp, and gas gauges. Everything else is ancillary.
Thats a problem nowadays. Too many mofo's with websites, "reviewing" titles. Then they get posted on N4G as news. They a give a AAA title a low/high score, get hits and repeat with the next AAA title. Do what i do. Only go to sites you know and trust. When i see these reviews from sites ive never heard of i dont even bother. Dont give em your time.
Are they that despearate to break "embargo" just so that they can get the ball rolling with negative reviews? This guy (according to translation) didn't bother to get through the online aspect yet. Heck, he hasn't gone though the first few hours of this game. -End of line
You need to learn to read. "PPS! pressure four have played single player part of "GT5" for nearly 40 hours, and got to test it online in an hour before the servers disappeared, most likely in conjunction with the launch." If it makes you feel better they gave Forza 3 a higher score. http://translate.google.com... http://www.pressfire.no/anm...
I agree and they did mention that and they couldn't do anything about the online situation (servers went down). But online is a big part of this GT game and is something almost all fans are anticipating (including myself). I think it's unfair to throw out a incomplete review just to get noticed. Can you image if Halo or COD got reviewed without the multiplayer aspect, doesn't make sense.
How the hell is a 5/6 a negative score?? Am I missing something? Seams like a great game to me, reading the review.
This was a very positive review. I dont get what you are talking about
I think some reviews of GT5 gonna hurt a lot of ps3 fanboyz. You know why ? Because a lot of these reviews are not going to be good. You know what. You'll play the game anyway, and you'll see.
5/6 is pretty good
I think you are sadly mistaken. Any site today that gives a review today has no credibility. If they have a copy it wasn't gotten through proper means. If they got it properly, then they could not have played very much of the game. Anyone that got it properly would not give up the their credibility to be the 1st review out. The online is not even up. How do you do a review when you haven't even played the full game. Every major release someone gives a review negatively for hits before the embargo.
Hurt? Why should I be hurt over another persons opinion? I don't play games by review scores.
Oh look the biggest PS3 exclusive of all time is getting scores in the mid 8/10 range from places like this and Jeux France. PS3 fanboys going into meltdown in 3-2-1 edit, lol at disagrees. Jeux France said thhe graphics have aliasing issues, bad shadows and damage. They gave it 7/10 and gave reasons why. You blind fanboys can't handle the truth. I guess giving the game anything less than 10/10 is trolling to Sony fanboys. Now we know why Sony put a embargo on reviews until launch day, the cracks are starting to appear. Typical for a game that's been stuck in development for as long as GT5
your bubbles are YUMMY ! num num num num num num :D
Yep eat these bubbles up, studio. Too bad we do this all for not. Guy gets low bubbles and creates another account.
I'm a huge GT5 fanboy. It's a 10/10 in my eyes. But the fact is these sites are breaking the embargo and have no journalist integrity. Tomorrow is still too early to review the game. Because they're effectively saying they can judge a game by its online component in less than 1 day (in the case of IGN who are going to do it at 12:01) which is quite frankly atrocious and means you shouldn't take their reviews seriously REGARDLESS of what game it actually is.
lol most of you guys dont seem to know what an embargo is. if a game has an embargo on its review for the 24th, that means you cant publish your review until the 24th - it does NOT mean that you cant play the hell out of the game for weeks before, and write your entire review before the 24th. all it means is you cant PUBLISH IT before the 24th. thats what IGN have done, and what they do all the time - theyve played the game for dozens of hours, and will publish their review after they have added in their take on the online component. most other games have the online functioning before release for this very reason - so reviewers can review the game. polyphony/sony for some reason decided not to. tl;dr version: IGN have already written their review after playing GT5 for a long time - theyre just not publishing it til they add in multiplayer thoughts.
@ NickX you dont have a ps3 so why are you worried? You will get to play amazing games like kinectimals and kinect adventures instead of crappy GT5. Consider yourself lucky! Oh yeah... - bubbles for trolling.
Dont care what they say, all I know is GT5 raises the bar for sim racing. The competition closest to it in its genre doesnt come close in features & graphics & gameplay wise & thats a FACT.
I'm tired of all the dam plain statement. Can't you guys ever back it up with evidence, comparison, etc....at least something. What is FACT. By making a statement and then tag on FACT at the end meaning it is fact? WTF?
I can't wait to see ps3 fanboys rage. Teh Bias!!! Thumb me down fanboys. I love your tears.
It's a review from a Norwegian website so don't trust this. Norwegian journalists are incredible stupid and it's difficult from them to develop their own opinion.
So we are filtering reviews based on discrimination huh? Cool.....(not)
''Norwegian journalists are incredible stupid'' Wha....aat?? Oh man...the things ps3 fanboys will say, just to defend their precious exclusives.
I'm from Norway and I can say for sure that our "precious" gamer sites as gamer.no, pressfire.no, spillmagasinet.no are just junk who copies news from other major sites and hardly manage to fathom their own opinion. Got nothing to do with ps3 fanboy as you boldly claim.
@Two-Face "Wha....aat?? Oh man...the things ps3 fanboys will say, just to defend their precious exclusives" love the hypocrisy dude lool, what happen to your commenting just now defending Forza saying its better based on 1 review? what does that say about you as a gamer. oh and btw, you're stupid if you actually Forza is better than GT5, iv played both and you haven't, end of. "Lol. ''Gran Turismo 5 will be so much better than Forza 3''. What now? I bet Gran Turismo 5 will have 80% average score of many reviews. Are you going to say that scores does not matter now too, just like you were saying that sales don't matter. Huh PS3 fanboys?"
even tho its gonna be a great game why are we being slammed with ten tons of gt5 articles?
This site was slammed with Black Ops and Kinect articles for weeks, now you complain about variety? Wow.
but they were hate articles gt5 gets only positive articles
Forza 3 got better scores than GT5 so far. Forza 3 difinitive sim this gen by the looks of it. PD should have spent more time on the gameplay than the rain effects.
wait MetaCritics has FORZA 3 at 82% averages, this is 83% along with another one with the 7, and famistu score of 38/40=95% The average is equal, and plus considering that these are what the first few reviews from NORWeIGON Sites, which give messes up scores for anygame. whereas Forza has around like 30-50????
what the hell are you smoking? Forza 3 is sitting nicely on 92% on Metacritic: http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Sure it is ,.. keep dreaming bro,.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... It even has similarities to that pos kinect game joy ride,..
These two sites aren't even on metacritic, so let's not get stupid here and act like miscellaneous blog #345 with all the credibility and reputation of my local high school newspaper is suddenly the barometer of professional critcriticism. They weren't even professional enough to honor the embargo.
exactly, but here is what you are going to see, much like what they did with Uncharted 2 reviews where a norweigen/french site gave it 7/10, they are going to hold onto that score like their life depended on it.
disturbing_flame that is a very stupid statement. How do you know that many of them won't ve good? And what is your definition of not good? is 9 not good or 8 not good. And so what if'PS3 fznboys' are be hurt by some reviews? Xbox 360 fans were hurt by any bad reviews of Halo and Alan Wake. So in short, what's your point? My god the number of haters in here is staggering. Two reviews that came out before the embargo and you all already have your feet in your mouths. And using IGN one of the crappiest reviewers around as a shield to top it all off. Guess there is no limit to how pathetic a troll can be.
Hmm...not really impressed with this. the game is not going to live up to the hype…
You should try, not being a sheep. Play the game and make a decision on your own. It's called..."Being an Adult"
"How about a futuristic war game set in a penal colony on an alien planet - where the goal is both to gather resources and train a crew before the big, dramatic conclusion? No, unfortunately, something you will not be included. But this is virtually the only thing you can not find stuffed into the "Gran Turismo 5." hahaha hilarious
their score was 5/6 with the max being 6? which would be 100% a 5 out of 6 would be 90% since there is no 5.1 on a single Die! and yet your hearing people trying to downplay that as a bad score? get real people PS: i see i already have a disagree, why? How is 5/6 not 90% if the max you can get in a score from that review site is a 6! which would be 100%
No, a 5/6 is a 83% not 90%. When Halo Reach and Fable 3 didn't get higher than a 9 it was considered a bad score by many fanboys on this site. Popular games must get a 9 or higher to be considered a good score, if it's not a big game, anything above an 8 is good......on this site anyway. EDIT: Type 5 divided by 6 into a calculator and see what you get. 5/6 is not 90% because that would mean, 4/6 is 80%, 3/6 is 70%, 2/6 is 60%, and 1/6 is 50%, which makes no sense because you have 50% missing. @Pennywise - don't matter who started it, it's happening now. By saying "the tables have turned, we didn't start it!" makes you sound like a 5 year old. So if anyone needs to grow up it's the people saying "Oh well 2-3 YEARS ago people were saying this and that, and now it's my turn to say stuff back".
do us a favor and STFU!!!!!!!! No one gives a damn about your pole riding.
@ Adamx You know I said a similar comment about pole riding but I used another word...let's just say I couldn't post for 3 days. On topic. I really wish this site would at least use a different grading scale. 1-10. What is so hard about that.
Joeorc, your math is off - but your theory is right. 5/6 is a good score. People are just idiots. T9x69 - You are right, 8/10 is a good score. AND - I do not condone this whole stupid he said she said BS... but 360 fans started with their AAA BS back in the day slaying anything that scored 8 or lower. The tables have turned and people like to point at PS3 fans like we started this crap. Everyone needs to grow the F up.
8/10 IS not a good SCORE for this game. This is one of the biggest PS3 exclusives to come, and it could do great effect on PS3 sales. It is also said to be the best racer this gen. 8/10 is not good enough then. And jeuxvideo gave it a 7, so yeah. I won't be suprised if this game turns out to be average.
So if I'm understanding some of you guys, one 8/10 score (actually 83% if you translate the stupid 5/6 dice score that makes a 90% an impossibility) is bad for GT5 and not good enough for a definitive racer...but the eight or nine 80/100 scores that Forza 3 got on meta' are just fine? Umm, yeah. Okay there.
Who gives a crap about no name sites who mean nothing? Not on the meta, only to stockholders on N4G.
It isn't a bad score, or even an important score, but I am posting to teach you basic math. 5 divided by 6 = .83333333 or 83.33%. I don't agree/care/disagree about their score, just your math skills.
Xbox fans sure are coming in here and trying to ruin this game launch for ps3 gamers. Its too bad that we all cant just appreciate good games together.
It have good points, but the review is more like a Half review, no Multiplayer. Is the last racing game you need. Until GT6.
omfg its so funny seeing butthurt 360 bots coming in claiming forza is better on 2 sites reviews of 7/10 and 5/6 lmfao and they didnt even test online for long remember
what confuses me is, both these sites are the first to give out the review.., yet no embargo lifted...so do they get in trouble? whats the point of an embargo then? as for fanboys, wtv, this is their only time to shine, and obviously F3 wasn't good enough by itself, they need low GT5 review scores from 2 obscure websites to actually enjoy the game. i'd like to see them in the positive reviews.
No different to the PS3 fanboys going into every 360 post/review and making the same immature comments. Stupidity and immaturity is across the board on this site.
lmao at the score 5/6???
nearly 4 hours to go till i get my hands on the REAL definitive racing game this gen
10/10 from most. 7/10 Edge/Eurogamer
good score, horrible translate.google review and above all pre embargo website = unofficial review = can't be considered =| then again, i expect gamespot and other "official" review sites to give this sub-90% score lets face it people, GT5 is a giant, and everyone wants to take it down, and they will do everything they can. stay away from the reviews if you don't want to encounter countless pre-teen fanboys and a lot of justifications for the scores _ just go play some games, its the best bet.
That's a lot of excuses. You tell others not to mind the reviews yet you are already doing damage control on reviews that aren't even out yet. That's some Jedi fanboy dedication if I ever saw it! I'm impressed. I hope you enjoy GT5, if you even own a PS3 that is.
Haha what a moron. Delbertgrady, nice! Although, he is not as dumb as the other PS3 fanboy(joeorc), that commented above. He thought 5/6 = 90%. HHAHAHAHAAHHA PS3 fanboys, go back to school.
@ delbert a) damage control? as someone that doesn't believe reviews should define a game's absolute quality and how much you enjoy it b) I've been stating from the start GT5 will be in the 80% ranges, in which case yes because people expect too much of it, its just an observation c) its no jedi dedication, if anything I'm pointing out to the GT5 "defenders" to just back off and ignore this stuff, its just pointless to get so worked up over reviews like this I even mention these review articles will have a lot of "justifications" = people trying to justify why the game gets 8/10 and 7/10 when the only reason it = unrealistic expectations of the game - too much hype, no other excuses, no buy outs, or bias, just hype. happens to games that aren't as "perfect" as people expect. d) yes I will enjoy GT5 like many others, and I do own a PS3, add me on PSN - visualbear however I've been parted from it for a few months since I've been away from home, just been playing on PC - i hope you enjoy your self gratification at "owning" me, cheers for that pointless completely incoherent reply...that isn't even a reply. mature...real mature kid @onomix - moron? who are you to call me a moron? i doubt you'd have the guts to say that to my, or anyone's face, anonymity sure gives you a lot of power doesn't it, yet in real life I doubt you have much. and dumb? whats so dumb about my comment? whats wrong with people on this site its like GT5 reviews brings out the children, why so personal? if anything, I think both of you (and a lot of others here) have serious problems, go out more, catch some fresh air and get along with real people for a change
