5.0 out of 5 stars A misunderstood Racing RPG 2 Dec 2010
By Elbow5
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Very dissapointed, not with the game, the game is top drawer, but with the people who have reviewed it after only a few hours of play.

So then, the review, yes it starts off with a 20 minute installation and an update or two to download, didn't bother me. The menu music, I have read people complaining about the menu music. I don't understand why people would complain about this. Yes some of the tracks may not be to everybody's taste but since there are options to change the menu music to one of over a hundred built in tracks of different styles, I'm fairly sure there will be something there for everyone. Maybe we just need to take the time to read the manual or check the options.

Next thing, damage and AI. Would you play a game like Zelda or Final Fantasy, expecting to walk straight into the hardest battle in the game during the first 5 minutes of play? Gran Turismo 5 has taken on an RPG element and this is where most "racing" fans are misunderstanding and therefore criticising GT5. This game is a racing RPG and i personally believe it should be judged in its own category as there are no other games like it.

A levelling system has been introduced, you obtain "experience" points based on your finishing position in a race. You start off at level 0. Only beginner level 0 competitions like the Sunday cups etc are available. Opposition car behaviour is very basic, damage is practically non-existent.

As you increase in level, you are able to enter more competitive races, unlocking cars and obtaining credits (money) for various wins along the way. On top of these competitions you will unlock special events to take part in at particular levels, level 2 unlocks a particular event with two courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game that justifies the PS3s exiistence 18 Oct 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The only reason I have a PS3 is so I can enjoy the best consol driving sim out there, all of my other gaming is done on the X-Box as I find the gaming experience better there,(Not Trolling just my humble opinion), GT5 continues the legend where GT4 left off with improved visuals and physics. I see some eejits complaining about the menu music, first thing I do is turn down all the BGM and menu music, I like to hear the cars not some dumb rubbish bass house, also noticed those complaints about the install times, 20 mins spent in set up giving so far 2 years of driving fun seems like a fair exchange to me. My only gripe is that there have been limited DLC tracks for this game, with the huge user base it must be cost effective to release more tracks, we have plenty of cars, I would suggest Bathhurst would be popular. Bottom line is if you want decent simulation on a consol then GT5 is the best thing out there right now, I have all the games from the Forza franchise and they are good but GT5 just pips them for quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars A review for the older gamer.... 27 Nov 2010
By RJW VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game for a few days now.
So I'm adding my review to the list.

Ok. I'll start by saying that I've never played Gran Turismo Prologue. I've been waiting patiently since GT2. So as you can imagine, my expectations were sky high.
The second point I should say is that I don't take my ps3 online. So there will be no talk of online multiplayer nonsense within my review.

So, in goes the disc. Within a minute you are greeted with the super-slick hi-res intro movie.. Artistic city scapes, and POV footage of cars being constructed. All accompanied with a jazz-funk sound track.
It all looks very polished indeed, and immediately you can see that this is a thing of quality.

A word on installation. You have two options.. Install the whole thing which takes 45 minutes and 8gb of space, or install as you go, so you can play right away, but things take longer to load.
Personally I installed the whole thing. I waited 5 years, another 45 minutes isn't going to make much difference. Lol.

Now, the basic premise behind this game is to drive cars, win races, pass challenges, and collect rewards as you go. These take the form of credits, extra cars, extra tracks, and extra car parts.
To begin with, the options are limited. You have a modest bank balance, and the car dealership has only very average cars for sale. This is very deliberate. The game is designed in this way so that you can become accustomed to mastering the basic controls and techniques. As you progess, you will be able to drive more desirable machines on more exciting tracks.
There is of course, the Arcade mode. Which allows you to jump in a top of the range car and thunder around the best tracks right away. But doing this is has no reward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible looking, but still flawed 24 Nov 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Having given GT5 several hours yesterday, I'm starting to make friends with it, but it's not without niggles.
It looks as incredible as promised with jaw dropping visuals and presentation in places, but not without some tearing here and there (this was a surprise). Sound is also great and inclusion of Nascar racing and karting is a pleasant change.
Career mode is more accessible and you can shortcut to levels and events you really want to do without having to take extra license tests etc.
The handling it has to be said, is sublime with huge differences in the feel of cars as you would expect. On track they perform brilliantly, particularly as you get up into the real racers.
One thing that really annoyed me about Forza was that once a car got into a slide it was uncorrectable, yet on GT5 you can get really out of shape round a corner and still save it if you fight hard enough. Traction control needs to be turned down to get this effect.
On the other hand you can be happily steaming round a corner when the slightest bump or loss of traction can send you flying off course, yet this is an equally satisfying aspect as it is realistic! These cars are definitely not on rails, the depth of control is vast.
Sountrack deserves a mention too as it features Them Crooked Vulutres, Queens of the Stone Age AND Eagles of Death Metal!! Awesome.
Otherwise though, if you've played earlier versions of GT, it all feels very familiar, and this is where my biggest problems with this long long awaited game lie....
Silly license tests, still there (although you can thankfully skip many of them now).
Samey race categories and some age old tracks, still there.
Samey mismatched CPU cars that always finish in same order (bar Nascar).
