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.
quit spreading lies dude. GT5 has everything it claimed to have. what did you expect? blood of jesus with the game? its the best sim racer out there, period. thats all it set to do. it didnt disappoint true GT gamers...it just dissapointed skilless kids who think driving is done with rockets and explosives
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
bargain bin? lmao! sure dude. us who already have it are goin to enjoy this game that's full of content, while you wait until it's in the bargain bin? HAHAHAHA you're missing a lot right now. tsk this game is really good!!!!!!
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!
@Datruth 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
You had me going there for a second, lol.
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)
Sure...but we'll trust yahoo's 10 rating
lol @ CBC This is the last company I'd read a review from for any game
Their reviews are actually pretty good.
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.
Is submitted by N4PS3G and a review from cbc?, I know what kind of review this is. The review didn't mention all features....
Unreliable? yeah, most likely.
Explain what did the game did not expectations accoording to you? People like you or say 360 FANBOYS come always talk like (expectations) I'm very excided what for excuse you have. And be fast with a answer, becouse i use my last bubble.
The game was hyped to be PERFECT. No game is perfect. GT5 is by far the best Sim racer out for consoles, but it's not perfect and it was hailed as being perfect before release.
Lol @ some news sources being called reputable. If they are popular, that must mean i can believe what they are saying... AND THAT'S THE OFFICIAL STORY! (I don't know anything about CBC) // I put $5 dollars down on GT5. But, I think someone might have bought it for me for X-mas. Either way, I don't have a wheel yet. So, I picked up Uncharted 2 (goty edition) instead. I saved my preorder reciept. So if I don't get it for x-mas I will go buy it then. I'll probably procure a wheel by then as well. //btw, most of these reviewers haven't even scratched the surface of this game. The online portion just came out and is being patched. They complain about AI and it gets more advanced as the game progresses, etc. Maybe too much focusing on the negative and not enough on the positive aspects of this game.
GT's menus have always used an arrow for navigation. It's not like yo have to drag it all over the screen, you can just use the d-pad to jump from one option to another. In a way, this actually makes the game better because it allows for much more intricate menu layouts. People will nitpick at anything without thinking about what the alternative might be. In this case, the pointer is much better than simplified menu layouts.
