After a long wait, Gran Turismo Sport is here, and it is racing perfection beyond measure. This is the best racing game that I have ever played, overflowing in beauty, grace, playability, and precision. Driving a go-kart, a fusion-engine concept race car, or a standard Ford Focus all provide a wealth of fun and unique challenges. Gran Turismo Sport is a triumph, and will be played voraciously by racing fans for years and years to come.
With GT Sport, the Gran Turismo series steers towards eSports and accelerates its transition to multiplayer online gameplay only. The solidity of its racing rules & regulations and gaming netcode will be fundamental to its success.
GT7 is actually not bad, it was just ruined by microtransactions. THE GT SPORT ALSO HAS THIS PROBLEM, BUT NOT AS SERIOUSLY AS THE GT7. For me, both the GT7 and the GTS are good driving simulators to help me practice my cars.
With impressive graphics, excellent controls and a well-developed online mode, Gran Turismo Sport could have been the best racing game of the year. Unfortunately, the lack of cars and courses and a half-baked single-player mode results in a game that does not reach its full potential. The foundation is great though, and if Polyphony Digital continue to add content at a steady pace Gran Turismo Sport might just grab the gold in the end.
Regardless of its foibles, let this installment be the start of a real commitment by Polyphony Digital to online racing – one that is folded into the main series' career mode and which is not just a temporary dabble like the track creator of GT 5 or the dynamic time/weather and race clubs of GT 6. GT Sport has enough qualities that it should be the start of something better and not just a detour for the franchise.
GTS lacks overall depth, but it is saved from being a complete failure by its stellar visuals, fun and realistic driving experience. I know how much work goes into producing a major-budget title like GTS, so I would never use the word lazy when describing the effort of the development team...However, this game comes off as an underdeveloped title that is being made to look more legitimate by the history of the series.
The real problem will be the expectations that millions of Gran Turismo fans bring. The vast majority who are going to buy this game aren’t the kind who’ll be reading this cautionary review, nor any other gaming publication for that matter. I imagine there’ll be a great deal of people strolling through a Wal-Mart, they’ll see a new Gran Turismo on the shelf, take it home, and then be completely dumbfounded by this barebones, obtuse, restrictive package. Those people are going to be profoundly disappointed by Sport, and I’m guessing so will most of the others who buy it thanks to the level of commitment necessary to get the most out of it. The people who go all-in will adore it, but the rest will be left in the dust.
Simply the 2nd best racing simulation of our time, GT7 being the number 1, This game is really competitive and fun, and the level of detail they have put into it is stunning beyond any forza, NFS, or IRacing could provide you, This also lets you compete in the world stage which is fun, a proper but yet dumb penalty system, I rather take a 5-sec penalty than a dumb mfer on Xbox to ram me in Forza motorsport.
I bought GT Sport at release as I'm a huge Gran Turismo fan. I started playing GT2 in the late 90's and I love the Gran Turismo series. At first I was not too excited as it's mostly pushed to race online and I liked Gran Turismo for the career mode. The online racing is good and after many updates I think the penalty system is very good. I just wish there was a way to report bad users but the bad users do suffer from penalties and a bad sportsmanship rating which helps kick them out of your class eventually. No voice chat in the race lobbies is a bad omission also which makes no sense with this generation. The graphics are amazing, racing physics are great. this feels like a Gran Turismo game if you like the series you will enjoy this game. After years of update this is well polished with so many tracks and cars. If you buy now which is always under $20 you getting a steal for your money. The career mode now exist in GT League but is still a bit shallow and was an afterthought. If it had a better career mode it would be a 10. Looking forward to Gran Turismo 7.
Trash cut down game compared to the previous ones. Online required to save BS. Only purchased it cheap and pre-owned, because the little kids wanted to try the VR section. The VR is a visually middling experience. Low rez pixelated track look, but with a nice detailed car interior. GT used to be my goto game back on the PS2/3. A shame this mighty series has fallen to this low level mediorce and anti gamer practices.
After trying several different VR games the motion sickness has finally gone. Still with all that plastic and rubber on the head? Head overheat happens pretty quicky. Yeah even when using a massive floor fan to try and counter it. Maybe I need to use PS/VR in the winter or something?
SummaryThe latest instalment of the Gran Turismo franchise is coming to PlayStation4 with the name Gran Turismo SPORT. The graphics, sound and physics engine promise to be the most realistic ever experienced in a driving simulator thanks to the new platform and the new technologies, but that alone would be a too obvious improvement: the way dri...
