Product Description

The next installment of the award-winning Gran Turismo simulation racing franchise, Gran Turismo 5, is designed for play exclusively to the PlayStation 3 system. Known for its signature beauty and precision, this highly anticipated racer showcases new jaw-dropping cars, real-life tracks, and diverse racing styles. Gran Turismo 5 promises to deliver exciting advancements to the series, and in the process deliver in the most comprehensive racing experience ever.

True to its pedigree, Gran Turismo 5 takes the GT series, as well as the simulation racing genre as a whole, to a whole new level. The game features over 1,000 realistically rendered cars. This is nearly 300 more than were included in GT4 for PlayStation 2, and literally several hundred more than what was available in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the first GT game variation developed for PS3. This tremendous list includes standard categories of vehicles, including stock cars, tuned pre tuned vehicles and tunables, but keeping with modern automotive technology GT5 also includes the latest, hybrid and electric car models. Just like any car, these can be raced, but as with their real-life cousins, players can also do things with these cars like monitor battery power as related to speed and other car usage. In addition, GT 5 features over 20 courses, more than 60 variations, a new physics engine allowing for realistic damage, a new in-cockpit view, HD support, and much more.

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tuned up and ready to go 17 Sept. 2014
By A2Y
G R A P H I C S & S O U N D
PD claimed that we would see over a thousand cars in the game, it was a very bold statement to make but it sure lives up to that claim. Two hundred of these Car models are of a premium design, this means that have been recreated to life-like detail. The premium models are truly gorgeous in their details, crafted with much love and care. The realism is just mind boggling, carbon fibre bodywork, racing modifications and luxurious interiors (even to the point where you can see the stitching on seats) are just some of the treats that will make you smile on the inside. There are two types of dealerships, new and used. Cars are wonderfully presented when accessing new dealership models; take in their magnificence as they rotate against beautiful backdrops. The passion for racing shouldn't just be limited to a tarmac track; this is where snow, gravel and dirt add greater variety to your need for speed. Speeding at 200mph as you pass near the Colosseum is an opportunity not to be missed. Night racing is another great feature, tracks can either be lit up or you solely have to rely on your headlights to get around in one piece. Racing in pitch-black conditions is very tricky and will require plenty of practice.

For the first time, weather effects make an appearance in the series. They are a dynamic feature that can change during certain races. The weather system only applies to particular tracks, there are day to night transitions during the course of races that are beautiful. Tyre smoke looks better than ever; its viscosity fills the air as you wheel spin and slowly diffuses into the air. Many fans were clamouring for the inclusion of damage, this is another first, as PD have gladly obliged to this request.

4.0 out of 5 stars In-Depth Review 21 April 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GT5 has been a bit of a mixed bag for me - at times I have come dangerously close to breaking my controller, the PlayStation, and any other items nearby, but despite this I still have had a lot of fun with the game, which drags it away from a 3 star review and up to a 4. Ultimately the good times outweigh the bad quite significantly, and I suppose it's only a shame that after 5 years PD couldn't have ironed out the niggles. I have waited quite a while before writing this review - my game stats now say 94% complete, so I feel that I have experienced enough of the game to be able to make a fair and informed judgement about it.

PROS
+ Awesome selection of cars, and the ones that are premium are absolutely exquisitely detailed. The standard cars are also nicely rendered, if not too quite as high a standard.
+ More tracks than before, and most of the additions (Monza, Top Gear Test Track) are good fun to drive around.
+ Some of the challenges really are quite tough, which is a good thing really as it gives one something more challenging than your average race. The rewards for completing them are also very generous, and some of them, such as the go-karting event, are excellent fun.
+ I actually feel that there is far less grinding in this game compared to previous iterations, although this does change once you get towards the final three levels.
+ Online racing is a welcome addition, and is great fun with some mates. Obviously split screen is present in arcade mode, and I have used this often with friends.
+ There is an onscreen driving line for almost every single event/race, which is great for beginners.
+ Although waiting times can be a bit lengthy, I find the menu system to be far more advanced than the old 'world' map found in GT4.
