CBC NEWS | Gran Turismo 5 Review

CBC News: Many people were expecting Gran Turismo 5 to be nothing less than jaw dropping. Ultimately, it’s a solid and fun racing game that will appeal to fans of the series and newcomers alike, but it doesn’t fully deliver on the expectations.

This is from the most reputable new source in Canada.

"Ultimately, it’s a solid and fun racing game that will appeal to fans of the series and newcomers alike, but it doesn’t fully deliver on the expectations. But it sure is arousing to look at — if you’re into cars, that is."

That sums it up very well. GT5 is a great game, but it under delivered. I will still pick it up eventually but not until it's in the bargain bin.

And what's with the Forza comparison? That game is ollldd

The Conservative government threatened their funding and now they are practically Faux News!

They only churn out right wing propaganda now, which is conducive with putting down foreign products and propping up domestic(North American) products!

Right wing govt's in the west typically encourage a free market approach. The only groups I see encouraging protectionism are labour unions, which are left wing last time I checked.

all the sony fans need to get together and report all the negative GT5 reviews so they dont show up on n4g and people dont know all the GT5 flaws

The problem is, IT WAS hailed as the blood of Jesus for racing games. It was and that's the sad truth about it.
The HYPE and EXPECTATIONS for this game was the most I have seen this generation.
It did not meet expectations.
Hell NO GAME could have based on that type of hype and expectations.
It was doomed from the start for trying to meet expectations that are unattainable.

CBC reports regular news, they have no pedigree in videogames. It's like asking EGM to write a report on Obama's bailout plan.

Well, entertainment and video games fall under "regular" news too.

For some reason, I tend to prefer these kinds of reviews. Usually there isn't that much bias at the cost of not being very thorough... but meh, that isn't really a rule set in stone anyways.
(Although, looking at the person who submitted this article on N4G... has me a bit cautious)

This is the last company I'd read a review from for any game

Parapraxis3861d ago

Their reviews are actually pretty good.

karlowma3861d ago

Yeah as I was reading the review, I was noticing how professional it was. Well written and unbiased. I think CBC has been doing a great job with their game reviews.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO3861d ago (Edited 3861d ago )

Is submitted by N4PS3G and a review from cbc?, I know what kind of review this is.

The review didn't mention all features....

Sunny_D3861d ago

Unreliable? yeah, most likely.
