4.0 out of 5 stars GT4: Prologue ... your questions answered ! 12 May 2004
In December 2003 "GT4: Prologue" was released, but was originally only made for Japan & China. At that time I believe GT4 was scheduled for a March 2004 European release.
Now it would appear that Sony has changed its mind and Europe is to get their hands on a very limited edition GT4: P (Signature Edition). Released in mid-May 2004. Now that might be because of the huge demand for import copies of GT4: P (Jap) worldwide. Or maybe because GT4’s release date has been put back (yet again) until September 2004!!
In addition to the game, this European “Signature Edition” will apparently come with a personal message from Kazunori Yamauchi - creator of the Gran Tursimo PS2 games and will also include a special 'Making of... DVD'. It's unclear whether the game will include any “additional” Euro-specific vehicles or tracks.
Just remember, it's only a "taster" for the eagerly awaited and hopefully “on-line” and massive GT4 & is therefore more akin to "GT Concept" than “GT3 A-Spec”.
It's basically (46?) of the License Tests taken from GT4. Fairly easy to get a Bronze, in your first couple of go's. But I found getting the Golds v.difficult & still have a few that elude me !! For every test that you pass (Bronze/Silver or Gold) you are awarded the Car that you had to do that particular Test with. You will also gain an additional vehicle once you’ve obtained Golds for all 6 / 7 tests in a particular coloured zone !
You can then use one of your hard won cars in the Arcade Mode for Racing & Time Trials on the 5 previously unseen "new" circuits. But Note, there are No Reverse courses !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than a Demo! 15 Sep 2004
GT4: Prologue is a pre-release "teaser" of Gran Turismo 4 due for release around Christmas.
I was initially discouraged by Prologue as I had the impression it was little more than a glorified demo. However, my Gran Turismo tainted mind soon got the better of me, and now it sits on my shelf.
In retrospect, this is actually quite good value. It costs less than a full price game, and I found the bonus DVD very enjoyable.
The game itself consists of two modes: School and Arcade. School mode revolves around taking license test similar to those found in early GT games, but some have been taken a step further. There are now lessons on overtaking, race practice and fuel conservation.
The arcade mode allows you to drive freely on the five tracks available in this preview, three of them with opponent cars, or in a time trial mode. The other two are essentially rally stages.
The physics engine, as hard as it is to believe, has come on in leaps and bounds from GT3. Seriously, this provides a new level of simulation. The graphics too are incredible, and many have already said this is the best looking game ever, on any platform. If you can get a hold of the screenshots of the Nordshcleiffe in the forthcoming GT4, you will have a touch job arguing that statement.
Unlike other incarnations, the cars setting cannot be played with on this game. This has avantages and disadvantages. Advantages: it makes it easy to compare your times to others in online forums as car setup is not an issue! Disadvantages: As this is primarily a game for GT fans only, GT fans by nature like to fiddle with settings, so Sony's primary consumer group may already be discouraged.
A suitable taster to GT4, its lack of being a real game is why it only gets 4 stars from me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Irritating 16 Jun 2004
Verified Purchase
This is a nice taster for GT4 but with a few irritating elements. 1- No original Gran Turismo tracks, so its hard to judge any handling improvments. 2- The 10 second penalty. This cannot be switched off and you'll get a penalty even if you only lightly touch the back of another car. However it seems that you can slide the side or back-end of the car into walls at high speed & get no penalty at all. I much preferred the old 'damage' system where steering is hampered if you ram into too many things. 3- most of the cars are weird, Japanese and rubbish (too many Skylines as usual too). 4- most of the tests are useless for anyone who's played GT games before. I mean, how hard can it be to do 2 laps of an oval track at 50 kmph? You have to do about 25 tests before they get interesting. 5- Its too expensive for what you get because there's only really a couple of weeks gamplay involved to finish it.
Despite all this, its still a must have for any GT fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Gran Turismo fans 4 May 2004
For those who do not know, this game is only a teaser version of the full game and contains 5 new tracks; Grand Canyon, Tsukuba, Fuji Speedway, New York and Citi Di Aria.
All tracks are brilliantly detailed and are slightly better than Gran Turismo 3 in this department.
Fans of the Gran Turismo series will love this game because it allows us to play the game months ahead of the full release, and we get an additional bonus disk and a Euro Edition specific car, which I believe is the BMW M5 Concept.
For those who want a taster of the game from May onwards then get this and you will be impressed by the new graphics and physics engine, as well as the new tracks, however if you are not such a big fan of this driving series then it is probably better that you wait for the full release, probably during November.
Anyway enjoy this game if you buy it
