Differences from GT3 If you cant see the point of getting th,
This review is from: Gran Turismo 4 (PS2) (Video Game)
Right from the off your mouth will be open firstly to the video and like the last one is unbelievable.
One of the huge improvements in this game is the unbelievable cool silky presentation before you have event started. It takes a little getting used to ( about ten minutes) but as prospectively you are going to spend probably between 200 + hours on this game it is very little.
The hefty amount of cars is ridiculous with over 700 although a lot of them are Japanese, there are still double more than any other game created. Whats more the cars also look fabulous. The story mode works much like the old games did but has massive scope to literally do thousands of things.
The arcade mode is no difference with the huge amount of tracks (50) without reversing them (almost 100 in all). These range from city(Parts of the worlds most famous and beautiful cities in a race whizzing round the Arc de Triupmhe is spectacular.) Real(Real tracks from the Japenese F1 track to the old and new Sarthe (LE MANS 24 HOUR) to the infamous NURBURGRING a huge punishing track which takes over 7 minutes when done with the best car you can find this track is literally not memorable.)
Original courses are courses compiled from Gt1/2/3 all of these have been re done and each time you one of these for the first time on this game you are ready for a shock.
DIRT AND SNOW are rally tracks.
The gameplay ofcourse is the last thing to mention. With most sequels you can play right from the off. The first time i played it i was all over the place, because of the hugely re done weight and physics engine it feels very different. Ever bump in the road is felt especially when going really fast.
The obvious worst thing in the game is that there is still no damage but still it is not that much of a problem. The best news is that you can play online(ish) go to [...] to find more.
