Polyphony Digital didn't rush it, so neither did we: our full and considered review of the most anticipated racing title of this generation.
GOTY for me.
anything less than a 9.9/10 for this fkn masterpiece is a lame attempt at comedy or pure hate. Truth.
If you give it a ten its just a license for developers to start doing the whole premium standard thing with all their games. NBA games with premium teams and standard teams. FPS's with premium guns and standard guns. Fighters with premium characters and standard charaters. Great game, but I think giving it a perfect score may send out the wrong message. Lets have games with the same development effort across the board and not just 20% of it shall we?
you call a game with long loading times, extreme screan tearing, bad car models a masterpeace? fanboy, lol
ManiacMansion Masterpeace.? You using a dictionary that spells automatically for you, yet, you still dont know what the word means in context.. Two bubbles.!!! And, just to make my peace, Just buy a PS3, it is your missing piece of the puzzle. Regards, Your Master.
Any early reviews, or reviews that have been posted almost immediately after the game has been released, have given the game a 7 or 8 out of 10 (which honestly is not a bad score at all). But lately I've noticed more "late" reviews popping up that are 9 or 10 out of 10. The game itself rewards players for playing and actually getting into the career mode, unlocking many features and generally getting a better "GT experience", rather than those who just play a few hours and then decide to write an entire synopsis of Gran Turismo as not only a game but also a simulation concept. I'll trust the late reviews, thank you very much.
@sleepy3: If you'd actually play games carefully you'd know that you can actually divide characters in games as premium and standard. See FF13 for reference: Important NPCs have better detailed models than "normal" people, who look generic, less detailed costumes, faces, models and more dull colours. The same trend appears in Mass Effect or even Uncharted in some degree. Don't be a tool man.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Less than a minute in Jessica from inidesimracing.tv talks about their upcoming review for GT5 an makes remarks about not understanding how other sites on the web could review GT5 of this size as quickly as they did. The guys from this site are pro sim racers and they will be the most harsh but at the same time the most honest. They don't pull punches regardless of what perks they receive from people in the industry. They are sent racing rigs, which they get to keep, that cost a ton of money an they still are honest with their cons. I know because I purchased a couple of them and their opinions were spot on. I am really looking forward to their review of this game. The guys from this show put up numbers (lap times) in games like this that most of us would not be able to match. This is all they do, playing racing games. They dabble in other games but they are hard-hard-hardcore sim racing fans.
I didn't even get bored about this game like i with NFS...
let this game die..forgetton already. Move onto new things. 84% Metacritic.
you again kid? dont you have anything better to do?
UnbiasedTroll is the biggest moron on N4g. Lets move on
GT5 or god of war 3 for me
GOW3 is right up there for me as well. Can't wait for next year where the competition might include KZ3, inFamous 2, The Last Guardian and possibly Uncharted 3. Not to mention Twisted Metal, Motorstorm: Apocalypse, a new MK and L.A. Noire.
oh god of war...how i love thee so. Feels like forever since it released, been a long year for me. But on topic GOW III is my GOTY too.
The later they come, the better they get.
I really like this "Polyphony Digital didn't rush it, so neither did we: our full and considered review of the most anticipated racing title of this generation." and this made me laugh really hard: "if you prefer to spend hours poring over which tribal-themed, dragon-tattoo decal you’re going to put on your paul walker tribute car then gran turismo 5 probably isn’t your bag."
i feel sorry for the poor soul who disagreed with you.
I'm buying lots of band aids...... I drive alot during the day, only to get home and drive at night....
Thing is I predicted both the sites marking the game on dev length AND that sites would, just as they did with GTPSP, mark it down having investigated about 10% of the sodding game. Same thing-impatience in sites gives you shallow reviews.
The more I play it the more I LOVE IT!!! I do hope they patch on-line so we can have country against country (i.e. average times, best times, etc) and you can bet on races or at least earn some winnings.
another review tha fall for the hype. Recent reviews showed that this is NOT a AAA titel at all.
Has anyone noticed that cars repair themselves after a race? I'm level 17 now, they sustain visual damage from crashes but after the race they look like new again. I know to get full damage I need to be level 40 but this is still weird. Also, they don't collect dirt at all which makes car wash completely useless. Other than that, awesome game.
I think they meant full "mechanical" damage at lvl 40 as opposed to the actual deformational damage (being progressive) unlocked at lvl 20. -End of Line
yeah i also noticed that, but the wash feature isnt useless at all. Everytime i was my car it returns to its shiness
GT5 is the biggest game out there and no one can deniethat , it have the best graphics , realistic gameplay and alots of features !! so it's obvios that gt5 will be game of the year .. GOD OF WAR 3 is an amazing game and heavy rain too but they are not big and doesn't have better graphics ... i didn't complete heavy rain , my brother sold it befor i complete it so yesterday i wanted to see the ending of the game but when i started the video and saw 2 minutes i turn it off because i wanted to play it again , that's mean it's a good game ...
Jejejejejjejeje this game is awesome I can't stop playing it great score btw congrats sony and pd on a great title
"It’s the best racing simulation on any console, anywhere, any day of the week." "If you prefer to spend hours poring over which tribal-themed, dragon-tattoo decal you’re going to put on your Paul Walker tribute car then Gran Turismo 5 probably isn’t your bag. But, if you’re after a mind-blowing driving experience that you can enjoy from the comfort of your arm chair then there is no alternative to GT5. Gentlemen, start your engines." This guy was on point with his review. I just wished all the other bad reviews trying to downplay gt5 would have taken their time playing gt5 more they would understand why this is the best racing sim on any console to date.
I'm having a blast at this game man, haven't played anything else since november 24th, currently level 23, my only problem is the game seems a bit too easy to win races, don't mean to brag but I wish GT had somekind of super dufficulty coz i'm finding myself leading by 5 seconds after 2 laps without upgrading my car and more than 30 seconds after 10 laps its more like i'm racing alone most of the time, please Kaz can i have cars that can at least match my lap times without going online to look for competition
Taz have to agree, im not a great racer, but im on level 22 although my mate who is a racer has done some i have found challenging, just asking if you have done the classic car race on level 22 i even my friend is finding that a challenge. anyone know how i can get a VW Lupo, i think i was given one but sold it, not realising i needed for a race, in my defence i am new to this game lol.
Post your psn ID and I'll gift you the lupo I have so you can do the Nürbürgring race with it. Then you can gift it back to me when you've got gold and won your own lupo as the reward car. My PSN ID is SPACEDRAG00N
thank you monkey, my psn ID is a2toed, i have just ordered a race wheel for this game, spending far too much time on the grass lol, still having a blast though, thanks again cya.
LOL you got me on that one mate I got owned at the classic race I upgraded my 1970s Lambo to the teeth but could only manage 3rd place in the 2 races, still trying to come first but these little oldis are so fast that i'm actually spending most of my time here trying to master them, dont want to buy another classic car coz i'm saving my $$$ for the ferarri F1 car
This game is absolutely wonderful! THe damage system is very good. There only one problem... too much time for scratch / deform the cars T_T
Im lv27, and i get dirt/scratch and dents/deformation on the first hit now.
At this point there's so much denial and biased fanboy love for GT5 that it's disgusting! GT5 fans will go down with the ship no matter what. It's the greatest racer ever! Who needs crashes? Good A.I.? Who cares! Graphics don't make a good game! It's about the game play! Can I make out with Kaz? Please!
You guys are right. 6 years really paid off. The physics in this game are brilliant and it took 6 years not 2 years like Forza 3 to get a hilarious clip like this,
Yeah I know. You guys were gonna throw the Forza 3 flying truck clip at me. I anticipated that. That's why I mentioned how long it took to make each game. Sorry guys. Better luck next time.
OMG you are such a fanboy. That clip you linked was hilarious. Now let's see you repeat that and then we'll talk.
You sound like a scared little highschool girl :S
@Orionsaint Lol how pathetic, your just a lame that looks for things wrong with the game because your [email protected] has nothing better to do seeing as you 360 fanboys have nothing to play xD. Just pathetic lol.
I guess trolls believe everything they see on youtube, as much as they quote everything from Wikipedia. Ontopic: Just because you can't afford/choose to be ignorant and not play/try GT5, doesn't mean you should be trolling GT5 articles.
great review,can anyone reccomend a car for me to use on the japanese classic beginners tournament???i tried using a tuned up s800 but it wasnt fast enough.
dome zero is probably the best car to use. you can win it in the series after beginner.
GT5 has the physics of the phsycs man, much more advanced than gt4 imo. All other racing simulators that follow will be judged by GT5 standards of Physcs, note i mentioned GT4 coz i couldn't bring myself to mention the other so called definative racer coz i'm talking about simulators not arcade racers. In other news: Is it just me or is the engine sound of the Calsonic GTR amazing
GT5 is the king, the rest is just a carbon copy
the king is back! the game which every racing sim would try to emulate but fail to do so. why? because it has an unrivaled graphics, true to life driving feel, weather, car damage, the most cars on any game and of course muliplay offline with 2 players split screen or online up to 16 players! wowow! now im off to buy a driving force GT! hope i get a good price for these awesome looking driving wheels.
Well i guess the check from Sony cleared. This game isn't a 10. Either Sony is bullying reviews or paying them off.
To a car nut/simulator fan this game can easily be the best thing ever. GT5 is my GOTY out of all of the games I've bought this year. If GTA4 scored so many 10's even though it runs at 15fps and has next to no content compared to the older games, why cant GT5, which actually pushes the envelope for racers and for content seen in a game, get one perfect score without xbox fans complaining? I suppose next up on the xbox fan smear list is LBP2 and KZ3. I'll bet that mass effect 2 will suddenly become a mediocre game in the next month or so too.
