About Gran Turismo 5

Developed exclusively for PS3 by Polyphony Digital, Gran Turismo 5 brings the world's most realistic and comprehensive driving experience to fans in one of the most highly anticipated games of all time. Gran Turismo 5 features more than 1000 licensed cars from the world’s top manufacturers and more than 20 tracks with more than 70 variations, including famous world circuits, city courses, and other environments. Featuring exciting gameplay and modes to suit newcomers, automotive enthusiasts, and seasoned fans, Gran Turismo 5 raises the bar on the franchise's depth of content and unparalleled visuals difficult to distinguish from a live race. Further reflecting this realism, cars will feature real-time visual damage with adaptive and accurate car deformation based on point of impact and velocity. Additionally for the first time, Gran Turismo 5 will feature an extremely deep online and community feature set. Players can progress and acquire credits through a variety of modes like GT Career Mode, Championship Races, License Tests and more, or they can explore different tracks and circuit variations in Arcade Mode. Additionally, players can race online with up to 16 players through PlayStation Network.

Summary

While GT5 could have done with more time, incredibly, to iron out a few of the kinks, there's so much quality on the track and so much to do off it that you'll easily forgive its shortcomings and revel in its successes -- of which there are many.

We like

  • The massive roster of cars and how they all handle differently
  • On the track, it's the ultimate racing sim with great driving physics
  • The game modes. Career mode is addictive and rewarding and then, of course, you can jump online in 16 player races

We dislike

  • The inconsistency of the graphics; some cars look excellent and others just look good. Same goes for the scenery
  • The B-Spec mode. Does anyone really want to watch a race and just bark out orders to the driver? Still, it might grow on us
