  • Summary: The 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 driving games are played also promise to undergo a revolution with Gran Turismo SPORT. This is a vision that invokes the rebirth of motorsports. The major difference between real life motorsports and Gran Turismo SPORT is in the fact that anyone, from children to the elderly, can participate and enjoy racing. Even players who have never played driving games until now can discover how fun it is to drive. Whilst at the same time, it promises the depth and complexity to meet the expectations of the existing Gran Turismo fans. Expand

    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.

    Gran Turismo comes to PlayStation 4 clearly focused on the online content and on the eSports, forgetting too much about the single player mode. Polyphony Digital has decided to bring something new to the saga thanks to better gameplay mechanics and realism.

    Compared to past games in the series, Gran Turismo Sport is an admittedly trimmed-down experience. There are fewer cars and features with no trips to the moon. However, it’s also true that much of what was lost really needed to be cut. GT Sport makes the most of its new focus on competition and it does an admirable job of training you to be a better driver. It can be intimidating to head online for the first time, but once you finish a race in a respectable position, it feels like all the time you’ve invested has truly paid off.

    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.

    Gran Turismo Sport fails to make our heart beat with a lack of content, and not many real existing cars or tracks, which feels odd for "The real driving simulator". The Fair-Play system isn't yet working properly, but hopefully it will before the start of the eSport season. At least players can still enjoy a nice physics model and an enjoyable feel to the drive.

    Gran Turismo Sport is a good game, and yet, it’s still a disappointment. Given this series’ pedigree, good simply isn’t good enough. GT Sport still brings it on the track, but its lack of content can’t be ignored, and you can’t give the game top marks in world where Forza Motorsport 7 and Project CARS 2 exist. If you’re a diehard fan of Sony’s series or really into online racing, GT Sport is worth a shot. If you just want the best racing sim out there, you may want to kick some more tires.

    With its lack of content and boring solo campaign, Gran Turismo Sport is simply inferior to its predecessors.

    THIS IS SPORT
    Granturismo sport aims to reinvent the franchise, gone are is the classic career mode, in its wake is the much-anticipated sports mode. Gran Turismo brings the visceral experience of racing against other humans to your living room. The game does an incredible job of matching your skill level to that of others for close clean racing. No other racing game I have played is as enjoyable or satisfying online as GT sport . The car roster while small is diverse, all cars are balanced to race against other cars in their respective fields ! . The single player missions are fun, No need to grind as XP and mileage points are handed out generously

    Pros - Best online racing PERIOD
    - Best looking racing game on the PS4
    - amazing livery editor
    - Sleek, snappy presentation
    - great sounds
    - Solid 60fps
    - Great physics

    cons
    - Small, yet fun career mode
    - Small car roster compared to previous GT games
    - Tracks are lacking
    - a radical departure from the past games, but a needed one
    9.0/10 ( 10 to outweigh the BS zeros)

    I have a strong feeling a lot of people will update their rating of Gran Turismo Sport come the next update. There's an updated Campaign modeI have a strong feeling a lot of people will update their rating of Gran Turismo Sport come the next update. There's an updated Campaign mode heading our way in December. The Sunday Cup, Boxer, NA, and Turbo fan favorite races also return. Update 1.06 gave us the Shelby Cobra, a hybrid Audi Gr. 1, and a Zagato Vision coupe. With more than 50+ DLC cars heading our way by early 2018, I can almost guarantee a complete revised score of at least an 86/87 instead of an appalling 75. Expand

    Gran turismo Sport me parece en primer lugar un juego dicertidisimo de jugar en todos sus modos, el modo offline sirve mas que nada paraGran turismo Sport me parece en primer lugar un juego dicertidisimo de jugar en todos sus modos, el modo offline sirve mas que nada para aprender y practicar. Es en el modo online donde se disfruta verdaderamente de la competición y una muy buena jugabilidad. Gráficamente es soberbio, hay momentos muy bellos y fotorrealistas, y el modo foto es espectacular. El único punto no tan bueno es la cantidad de vehículos y circuitos, un pelin escaso, aunque suficiente. Supongo que aumentara con sucesivos DLC. Expand

    The most dissapointing release of an already established franchise i've ever played. It breakes my heart.

    The serious lack of content
    The most dissapointing release of an already established franchise i've ever played. It breakes my heart.

    The serious lack of content (cars, tracks) and forced online is what killed the enjoyment of the game for me. No career mode, online-only focused content and forced connection races will surely turn off every old school Gran Turismo fan (including me). I felt no progression whatsoever while playing this game, (besides the lackluster tutorials, which granted, are many and challenging) and soon the game became a headache inducing grind towards no goal in particular.

    The gameplay is actually really good, but the sound and visuals leave a lot to be dessired. No longer is GT the flagship of modern race simulators... i actually encourage buying either project cars 2 or Forza 7 if you own an Xbox One.

    With such a lack of content in Sport, and the non existant ambition and evolution that the series had always shown, i cannot recomend it for $60.00. This game is barely a $15.00 experience for me, and i just felt my heart breaking while typing this... i never thought Gran Turismo would pull a street fighter V **** thing... but it did, and it's so much worse

    Do not buy this game, there's no real single player (mp focused game).
    No tuning, lack of content (around 160 cars, in reality maybe 80-100 are unique). 27 tracks if I'm not mistaken.
    Lazy cashgrab on a license, online will die out very soon as there's no real progression system present.
    A disgrace to Gran Turismo franchise.
