    The appeal wears off quickly but it's a brilliant showcase for PS3 power. [Apr 2007, p.61]

    Online rankings are the icing on this outwardly bland, but ultimately rather tasty cake. [May 2007, p.77]
  3. GT is going in a good direction. If they can tighten the AI so the cars aren’t racing in the same line, clean up the catch up AI, add a damage model, and build on the weight physics than "GT5" will be a racing game to reckon with.
  4. Filing microseconds from your best time should keep you amused for the long wait until Gran Turismo 5. If you want to show anyone what the PlayStation 3 can deliver then this is without question your technical demonstration.

    This is far too flimsy to to take up more than a few hours of your time. [Issue #150, p.78]

    good video but the game is quite crap.
    I downloaded the demo on the ps3 and I admit that the graphics are amazing. but the songs are all classical music which doesn't flow with this type of game. there is only 1 good car to drive which is a ferrari. the cars don't show damage like nfs pro street. it is impossible to drift in drift mode with a fast car because the car either spins out of control giving u no points or the car stops if u go to slow. the main car is the toyota, (the white, green and red one)and for a main car, it is ugly and slow!!!!!

    I've played every GT and this points to a fantastic future for the series we all love. Graphically awesome in HD with the most realistic I've played every GT and this points to a fantastic future for the series we all love. Graphically awesome in HD with the most realistic lighting of any game and the best recreation of driving physics anywhere. A great freebie, shame there's just one track... Regarding the 'pay per play' aspect discussed by one reviewer here - a lot of the plans over online charging are back up in the air after GT 'Classic' was cancelled. Let's hope they reconsider, I think the console cost me enough... Full Review »
