5.0 out of 5 stars DLC Issue 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The only thing I have to say as a complaint over this game is the DLC. I bought a brand-new copy of this game at the date of the 13th June 2013 and my Redeem Code kept failing. Then I found out it expired on the 31st January. there's a number of brand-new copies with expired DLC's so be careful. This is bound to be happening all over the place. What kind of idiot would decide to put an expiry date on a redeem code when it's not going to go mouldy like a loaf of bread?

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Online servers will be turned off for Gran Turismo 5 (May 20, 2014) so no more online play... other Sony first party titles will also have server online support turned off...

very good game, this version included all the latest bug fixes and updates already on the disk, which was nice... shame Sony are turning off the servers for online play...

3.0 out of 5 stars The real Catch up Simulator 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
The driving is great, but as a racing game it falls flat, they shouldn't call it the real driving simulator but the Real catch up simulator, as the only thing you do is catching up cars, you mostly start last and your objective is catching up cars 1 by one.... even in rally races? This was ok in the 90's with GT1 - 2 now it's getting old and start to miss real races with an AI that fights, here the AI doesn't seem to know you are there.
You have a lot of cars but many are missing, and why do we need 50 different mazda mx-5's? nissan has this same illness sure that is an easy way to promote and say we have 1200 cars in the game while you have 30 models that have 20 copy and paste models but with different paintings.

The thing I really liked is the new tracks, it's a breath of fresh air and as i said the driving itself. but you really miss the sense of a racing game, why are there no qualifications? Why no complete championships in each category for example? why catch up cars especially in rally races? So many things that could be changed, It could be a master hit game, but no they mess up with their design mode. They have even karting so why not a proper career mode where you start a kart championship at age of 12 and they go up and have career choices to go to gt, F1, nascar, or all. Nope just catch up races over and over and over again.
Sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive breakdown of a truly titanic game 12 May 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition Review:

The definitive version of the most comprehensive driving game ever created. Please be advised this is a long review and will be split into categories as appropriate. I will not be reviewing the multiplayer portion as my preference is in Gran Turismo world offline (the main game). In the graphics section I will talk about what equipment and settings I viewed the game on and give advice for the best performance. Please skip to where you feel appropriate or kick back and enjoy the whole dang thing. At the bottom of Academy Edition content you will find instructions on how to access the content itself.
The review will be detailed as follows.

1. Brief history of Gran Turismo.
2. Content of Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition
3. Gran Turismo World-core gameplay and objectives
4. Graphics
5. Audio
6. Physics, gameplay controls
7. End Summary with conclusion of pros and cons

(1.) Brief history of Gran Turismo.

Today in most of the world, Gran Turismo is very much a house hold name. However it was not always this way. It all started back in 1998 when a young ambitious developer, Polyphony Digital aided by Sony, set out to change driving games. Their goal was simple-to create the most realistic and in depth driving game ever. Utilising the power of the then CD based PlayStation allowed them to have an incredible CG introduction video, real recorded audio effects and cd quality sound tracks. Cars and tracks were modelled very accurately for the time and the option to race for cash, buy and tune up a hundread or so real world vehicles was thrilling. The complex physics engine cemented Gran Turismo as "The real driving simulator".
