In a nutshell: GT5 seems like little more than a repackaged GT4 with additional cars, tracks, and overall better graphics (although there is still room for improvement). Like any GT4 fan, I've been waiting for this game for a while. Now that I have it, I feel it still was not ready to be released. There are very few improvements over GT4 in this 5th installment of the series. One of my biggest issues with this game, which most probably wouldn't even notice, is that fact that any time the game is writing to disc, the flashing notice in the bottom right corner states "Installing...". That shouldn't have made it through the QA process. All-in-all, it's still a fun game if you liked GT4, just don't expect it to be a totally new experience, because it is not.

Good but not up to expectations

by Anonymous on 12/27/2010

The last few games have been amazing. Each out doing the last in every way. This one fell short on the visuals. The only thing I was impressed with there was the in-car view. This game still looks like GT4 and the damage after hitting things is sub par. The amount of cars was questionable at first since most have to be bought in the used lot since they are older models. Online was a little rough trying to get friends together since there is no way to invite. Handful trophies impossible to get. I was impressed with the layout of the menus, the updates and some of the new races like special events. The team also knows where their flaws are and plan on fixing over time from what I hear. But after the release taking this long it's hard to believe they didn't have enough time to complete these things before. There is nothing given for playing and completing prologue in this. Bottom line, if you are a fan of GT you will like this. If you didn't care for the last ones you won't care for this at all. Still an impressive and fun racing game.

Review Gran Turismo 5 sets the bar high for the genre overall, and with its detailed approach to core mechanics and commitment to creating the best simulation in video games, it's easy to see why Gran Turismo is the gold standard in the automotive genre. Though some missteps were made with some of the modes, the game is a tight package that begs not only to be played, but obsessed over.

Review Kaz Yamauchi's passion for the racing sphere shines through every aspect of the game. The incredibly-detailed cars, the slick presentation, the spot-on physics. Polyphony Digital brought its A-game. Nothing else on the market can come close to the realism and immersion you feel throughout. Gran Turismo 5 is virtual racing at its very best.
