    Graphics and the Computer Design are good....terrible A.I. that just go's to rigid. A clutter of cars that don't move around. Just little bit of fun and no point in racing. Another thing is that there is no Career Mode which is sad.

    It's pretty fun, the graphics are INCREDIBLE. It is a shame that you can't just buy the cars you want but have to race and then see what the dealership have in store for you, but overall it's pretty great.

    Lack of career is the only sad thing about this game. It could have got 10 out of 10 score. but, oh well...

    All I can think about when I play this game is "wasted opportunity" why they didn't add a GT mode or why you can only have 4 cars in a race. All of these are drawbacks that pretty much kills this game.

    Gran turismo light is what it should have been called mainly because with out sim mode the game feels kinda empty despite the fact it has 800 cars and 64 tracks . the controls arnt bad but will take alittle gettin used to especialy if youve played prolouge and other GT games with a wheel . the graphics are great and im sure pushes the PSP to its limets. also you cant tune up your cars ><Gran turismo light is what it should have been called mainly because with out sim mode the game feels kinda empty despite the fact it has 800 cars and 64 tracks . the controls arnt bad but will take alittle gettin used to especialy if youve played prolouge and other GT games with a wheel . the graphics are great and im sure pushes the PSP to its limets. also you cant tune up your cars >< whats GT with out that . the load times arnt to bad .if it just had the sim mode this game would be near perfect and i coulda put in alot of hours in this but as is after i raced on all 64 tracks and had a few high end cars which was about 12 hours maybe i got bored and havent played it since. for $20 bucks though its still a good racing game to own just not the gran turismo we all would have liked to see on the PSP that makes it deifferent from all the other racers out there.

    A disappointment to say the least. It ditched the career mode ("Gran Turismo mode") and all the player does is collect cars. Very little gameplay. At least the game has license tests; I can't say the same about the boring races with a few other AI. There's long loading times for each level and every menu, especially on a PSP-1000.

There's long loading times for each level and every menu, especially on a PSP-1000. Even though it's a car collecting game, the player has to wait to buy which-ever car they want. Each game day a selection of only a few dealers show up, despite how the game is packed with cars. The few pros (such as graphics and frame rate) are easily outweighed. This game was not worth the positive speculation after it was originally announced, years before its release. Expand

  1. Gran Turismo for the PlayStation Portable is a faithful reproduction of the original PSX game that achieved so much success in the 90's. Although missing online functionality, it's still the best racer you'll find for the platform.
  2. Great looks, impressive handling, good tracks and cars. But where's the career mode? [Dec 2009, p.64]
  3. Gran Turismo PSP is Polyphony's Pokémon and, as such, one that's more for the Jay Lenos amongst us rather than the James Hunts.
