Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

In Gran Turismo 4 the characteristics of the cars are realistically designed and calculated so that they handle as per the real-life physics of that particular vehicle, taking into account weight, speed, friction, wind and more. New technology immerses the player in real-life environments such as New York City and the Grand Canyon. Highly detailed vehicles and environment mapping create broadcast-quality graphics, from light and competitor car reflections on the player's automobile to leaves on a tree shaking in the wind.

In offline gameplay, players will have the opportunity to race in enhanced arcade and simulation modes, experiencing more than 500 authentic automobiles from manufacturers around the world, with a range from vintage to modern vehicles. Courses include existing closed racing circuits to specially designed city courses, reaching a total count of up to 100 tracks.

The online mode features a robust system for players to race with up to six other players and interact and chat with others to form an automotive community.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return To GT4 30 Mar 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game the day it came out and played endlessly, then, when more or less complete, lent it to a friend and of course never saw it again. That is until last week when it was suddenly returned out of the blue, so, two years after release I thought I'd write a retrospective review having picked it up again for the first time in an age...

Firstly, the graphics are literally awesome, even now two years on, okay so the frame rate does not get up to the speeds of say the Burnout series but nonetheless they are crisp and impressive. The car choice is also incredible, as is the choice of race types, upgrades and special events. The load times between screens is slow though.

Progress through the game is also slow, you pretty much have to complete all the licences first (if you press down on R3 at the start of each test you do get a guide line though so pretty easy - maybe 2 hours if yer good), not just so you can enter all the race types, but also so you can build up your car collection free of charge. Then you have to get to know the cars and how they drive, not to mention the courses, which can take ages too. However it is all very gratifying, for instance, whilst it may seem at first that the cars all handle badly, that would actually be bad driving, patience and you can find the best way to get any given vehicle through a course quickly, Panda or Skyline.

Okay, its not a pick up and blast game like Burnout, TOCA, N4S e.t.c, its a simulator which rewards patience and skill, and as has always been the case, GT4 is the king of driving games, well, until GT5 that is...

5.0 out of 5 stars only flawed because of the hardware! 25 Aug 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this is Gran Turismo! what more can I say? To the millions of people out there it only mean perfection! And thats what the latest delivers! People can say about how none of the cars handle perfectly, but they do, have you ever driven your car at these speeds? And then gone and accuratly measured its performance? because thats what the makers of GT4 have done! OK there could be more cars, more tracks, and yes compared to some pc games the gfx are lacking, but this is on a PS2 system, and this system is over 5 years old and its tech specs havent changed! So if you really think about it the makers are really stuck for improvements due to the lack of system capability, the system isnt powerful enough to handle more than 6 cars, and the AI, and photo realistic cars and scenery all at the same time! but they've done a damn good job at trying!

The graphics are second to none! the tracks do look amazingly detailed anyway, and yes the technology is there to make it photo realistic, don't get me wrong, but its the PS2's capabilities that let the game down, the cars look amazingly detailed, although if you look closely you can see that some of the cars dont have drivers, and the wheels arent amazingly detailed it is still an amazing acheivement! the light effects on all the models in the game is also amazing and does look very realistic, ok you wont go round noticing all these little details but it does add to the atmosphere which is something you do notice! And amazing IT IS!

The pure number of tracks is amazing, although the actual number is nearer 40 in total (including the short and long versions) there are about 50, no game offers so many tracks in such high detail!

4.0 out of 5 stars Driving to Success? 29 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played all previous versions of Gran Turismo before this one (other than GT Concept), I was expecting this version to be even better than GT 3, which is my current favourite. And I am glad to say that it delivers, in my opinion, slightly better value for money. Usually, I would end this review here, but since no game is perfect, it does have its pro's and con's, so I shall start with the pro's:

Choice: once again the choice of cars that you can get is still impressive; Some 500 new and used cars to choose from. Although it is worth remembering that you probably wont ever use every single car there is. Also, I question why some manufacturers are in the game and others are not, such as Daihatsu instead of Ferrari.

Graphics: for me this is the biggest improvement over time. Remembering back to the first incarnation of Gran Turismo, the cars barely resembled their real life equivalents, but now there is a feeling of realism in terms of the graphics. And it's not just the cars either. The tracks are amazingly accurate and are drawn in impressive detail, and the pit stops are vastly improved over what they were in the first versions of Gran Turismo.

Realism: this is quite a controversial part on the game as I have seen reviews commenting on under steer at slow speeds, and cars that wont power slide easily. And I will admit when I first tried the game, I agreed with these comments. But over time, I learnt to follow the racing line more accurately and that throwing a car into a corner wouldn't get me very far. And after all, if this is supposed to be the most realistic driving simulator going, then the cars must be this bad!!!
