Amazon.co.uk Review

The award-winning Gran Turismo franchise returns with its 5th installment, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, exclusively for PlayStation 3. With its signature realism and unrivaled physics, this highly anticipated precursor to Gran Turismo 5 continues to blur the line between simulation and reality.

"Prologue" is defined as an introductory or preceding event or development, and true to every letter, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue treats both long-time fans of the Gran Turismo franchise as well as those coming to it new, with a generous sampling of what they can expect to see in Gran Turismo 5 later in the year and further releases on the PS3.

Developed By the Best
Polyphony Digital is the developer of the Gran Turismo franchise, led by creator Kazunori Yamauchi. Polyphony Digital is known for pushing the limits of the PlayStation hardware, and with its realistic graphics and physics, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue is no different. In addition to receiving CAD data from the auto manufacturers, they have taken thousands of photos to model each car (and track). As an example of the level of detail, a car in Gran Turismo 4 has the same number of polygons as a headlight in Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.

Polyphony works even closer with the automotive industry to make sure that the cars look and drive just as they do in real life. In fact, Kazunori Yamauchi designed the on-board computer for the real Nissan GT-R. If you’re lucky to buy one when it releases, you will notice the Polyphony Digital logo when you start your car.

Take Your Cars and Tracks Online and Off
Gran Turismo 5: Prologue features over 60 stunning cars – including vehicles by Lotus, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Ferrari for you to race on seriously realistic, real-life tracks: including the Eiger Nordwand, the London City Track and Suzuka – all rendered in incredible High Definition graphics. There's also all-new driving physics for the most lifelike driving experience ever and new, improved opponent artificial intelligence for the toughest race challenge yet.

But that's not all – for the first time ever in the history of Gran Turismo, players will now be able to race online. Up to 16 players will be able to go head-to-head on some of the world's best racetracks on PlayStation Network. All you need to get racing is a broadband connection and PS3. Once you're up and revving, Global Online Rankings and the My Garage homepage feature will leave the world in n o doubt as to just who is the best at Gran Turismo.

And then there's the Online Dealership, providing a wealth of information on cars and manufacturers and also Gran Turismo TV – a dedicated online channel available exclusively from PSN and packed with some of the greatest content that Motorsport, car manufacturers and TV has to offer.

Key Features:

  • Race over 60 cars from worldwide automotive manufacturers, precisely modelled both inside and out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not 5 star 16 Oct 2008
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game with my PS3 40GB, and I thought it was astonishing. The graphics were really good, the cars were fast(after you unlocked them), the tracks were numerous, good looking, and fun. It was a big jump from my PS2 Pro Street. However; after a while, the cars started to look a bit plasticky, and when the cars crashed into a wall or another car, they didn't break, but stayed exactly the same. I thought this for thirty pounds was good, but I thought that the PS3 had more potential. I tried a few other racing games, such as Race Driver Grid, and they were awesome. The graphics looked better, and more realistic in Grid, and really crashed when I crashed. This game is now reduced to 18 pounds, but if you're looking for a really good car racing game for your PS3, get Grid, or wait for Midnight Club:Los Angeles to come out. All I gotta say is that this game is good for 18 quid, but it has more potential.

Hoped this helped.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but flawed 19 May 2008
By Mr. D. Bell VINE VOICE
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, forget whether this is "half" a game or not and all the controversy surrounding it. It's half the price so stop whinging. If you think it is a con then don't buy it and just wait for next years "full" game.

There are far more problems with it than the price though. The biggest problem is that it is virtually the same game we saw back in '99 just with the obvious improvement in graphics. Because it looks so fantastic it makes the fact that you cannot "crash" look even more ridiculous. When you look at footage of the forthcoming TOCA Grid and look at how great that looks I can't help thinking that the lack of crashes is down to programmers with an obbsesive desire to make the cars look as real as possible. Who cares that there will be 700 cars. You would have to play it for years to get anywhere near owning half of them. Also, there will be loads of rubbish that no-one will want to buy but will be forced to as the opening races are as dull as a party political broadcast. When you first see the cars they look stunning. No-one can argue with that. The problem is that because they look so amazing when you hit another car, or a barrier and nothing happens it looks ridiculous.

The driving in the game however, is second to none. The physics of each car is stunning and as a "driving" simulator it can't be beaten. However, as a "racing" game it is starting to become very dated. The AI has supposedly been updated but it still appalling. When you compare it to Forza 2 on the 360 and even Toca 3 on the PS2 it feels very samey.

Having said all that there is something about Gran Turismo that keeps you hooked. It's a bit like that girl in the office you secretly fancy. She is far from perfect but there is just something about her that is so great but you can't quite figure exactly what it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very OK 30 Aug 2008
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off I have to say I can not really find much to fault with the game. The graphics look great, the cars are realistic enough, the courses fine. Everything about the game is OK, it just lacks that spark, that special something that makes you want to keep returning to the game. If you like driving games you will like this but lets hope there are some better ones out there.

I haven't tried the online game yet, maybe I will later (or maybe I wont).

5.0 out of 5 stars GT5: Prologue - now with Online mode update... 20 Jan 2008
By Touring Mars VINE VOICE
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GT5: Prologue is alot more than 'half a game' or 'just a demo'... it's a fully loaded precursor to GT5 proper, and as such it promises to deliver a first taste of the next generation of racing games for the PS3. Complete with an all new physics engine and presented in glorious 1080p Hi-Def, GT5: Prologue is arguably the most realistic driving simulator to date.

GT5: Prologue has 6 tracks with 2 variants each: London (Forward and Reverse), Daytona (Speedway and Road Cuurse), Fuji (GT and F1 variants), Eiger Nordwand (Forward and Reverse), High Speed Ring (Forward and Reverse) and Suzuka (F1 and East Course circuits). The game also features over 70 stunningly modelled and ultra-realistic cars, including the Ferrari F40, Ferrari 512 BB and the Ferrari F2007 Formula One car!. It also features many brand-new models such as the Nissan GT-R and the Audi R8. Each car is lovingly modeled in breathtaking detail - including (for the first time in the GT series) the interior of the car.

The new physics engine for GT5 raises the bar in terms of realism and the game can be played in either Standard Physics (more like previous GT games) and Professional Physics (more challenging and alot more realistic). GT5:P also features the ability to "Quick Tune" cars, which adds a whole extra dimension to the game (and hence also adds a bit of shelf-life to the title).

The new 'in-car' view is superb, and offers the driver a much more realistic experience. The game is also fully compatible with the latest wheels (e.g the G25) and will also be compatible with the forthcoming DualShock3 - the replacement controller for the SIXAXIS - which comes complete with the 'rumble' function (as with the DS2 for the PS2).

5.0 out of 5 stars Woe betide the misinformed... 18 Mar 2008
By Graham
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
60+ cars, 6 tracks (2 variations each), 16 player on-line racing, tuning, custom cars, F12007...er, maybe I'm missing a trick here. 18 for that lot, and after 20 hours of racing, you still won't have all the cars. I think it's fair to say that this is just a little bit more than a demo.

There are PSN games out there that cost more yet deliver nowhere near the level of content and gameplay on offer here. But, that's OK isn't it? :o/ Honestly, some people need to get their heads out of the clouds and see things in context.

If you want to hold on for the full game, kudos to you and your patience. Me? I'm not going to wait another year when I could be playing this gem of a title. The rewards will come in the form of transferred cash to the full game, transferred cars, and masses of experience so you can show the online n00bs a thing or two about driving.

I paid 425 for my console when it first came out, and people are still having to pay upwards of 300. At 40 or so for the other games that you buy, 18 for this is small change.
