After playing this for twenty four hours, Amazon did me a treat by it arriving the day before release, it just seems to have been caught up by some of the other racing games like Forza.
The gameplay just isn't dynamic any more in a market that has moved on from when GT was the leading game. Especially in the multiplayer/online area which GT5 is terrible compared to Forza. Hopefully this will improve in future patches but as we have had to wait so long for the release this is very poor.
The menus are slow and cumbersome and the loading times are poor, even after the install.
However, the game has fantastic, tiny details that will keep you astounded and great depth in single player. The graphics are good but not outstanding like they once used to be compared to the other competitors. It will provide hours, and probably days, of fun in single player.
The PS3 controller is very poor in racing games which does not help things. A wheel should improve playability and feedback.
Overall it is a good game but its let down by the very poor online multiplayer which in this day and age should be one of the core elements. GT is not head and shoulders above its competitors any more and in some areas is now behind them even after 5 years of development
