The school mode is dreary in the extreme and the penalty system in arcade mode is highly unrealistic. Watch the Touring Cars on TV and see how many of them get stuck in first gear for hitting another car or a wall. Yes, they loose time if they get it wrong because they come of worse, but they get it right they are only penalised for actually punting another car off the circuit or taking a shortcut and gaining advantage from it.
Sorry guys & gals, this is a very poor relative to the previous GT games. If the full GT4 is like this, I will be avoiding it.
Not a good advert Sony.
Despite all this, its still a must have for any GT fan.
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. As a GT fan, I would like to give it 5...but, I am trying to write a review that will be useful for everyone. This really is a game for the enthusiasts. But watch the DVD and the introduction of this game for a glance at what GT4. It is going to be...words cannot describe...
