About Gran Turismo

Titled simply Gran Turismo PSP, Yamauchi confirmed that the portable racer will feature a whopping 800 cars, 35 tracks, and more than 60 layout variations. Those of you concerned that the handheld outing will be a down-sized iteration in the venerable franchise needn't worry: Yamauchi confirmed the game will offer a 'full size' Gran Turismo experience.

Summary

Gran Turismo is a fine racing simulator and offers car fans an enormous amount of killer vehicles to collect. Ultimately, the game is marred by the lack of a career mode and online play

We like

  • The frame rate and visuals hold up great for a handheld game
  • The enormous amount of vehicles at your disposal
  • The fact all tracks and cars are available out of the box

We dislike

  • The limited replay value due to the absence of a career mode
  • Not being able to add aftermarket parts to your ride, lack of overall customization
  • The lack of online play
