    This game is a masterpiece of automotive history and driving gameplay. Truly no driving game has ever come close to being this sensational.

    Gran Turismo 7 is a game with an exquisite and addictive experience thanks to the support of DualSense and Tempest 3D Audio Tech. Following Gran Turismo Sport's disappointment, Polyphony regained his throne.

    Gran Turismo 7 is a game for everyone: the racing enthusiasts, the novices, and anyone in between. It celebrates car culture and history within the confines of a driving experience, explaining how the automobiles you race past the chequered flag fit into the wider world. There's never been a game quite like it before: Gran Turismo 7 means more than just racing. It's something that matters; something that warrants appreciation and respect just as much as it hands it out itself.

    Gran Turismo 7 offers a great variety of cars, tracks and locations in glorious detail. It takes quite a long time to unlock it all though. The campaign has been replaced by menus in the cafe, but still requires (too) many activities before the entire game is unlocked and everything is available. However, what IS available is of the highest standards.

    Gran Turismo 7 is a real return to the series' roots, one that fans have been waiting for. It brings together within it the multi and community aspect of GT Sport while rediscovering the "RPG of the racing game" aspect of the first four opuses with a well-structured and scalable GT mode. The driving is both technical and accessible, benefiting from great precision which offers a good margin of progress. 420 vehicles, 90 tracks on 34 circuits and mission and license modes for those who like small challenges, it promises a phenomenal lifespan to all car simulation fans. Although we would have appreciated a less plan-plan artificial intelligence, GT7 regains its acclaim to once again become The Complete Real Driving Simulator that we have always loved.

    Gran Turismo 7 is a saint without miracles and has Lewis Hamilton, Igor Fraga and another legion of professional players as apostles. With an iconic Formula 1 driver and the Brazilian Gran Turismo Sport world champion advocating in its favor, who would I be to say a single word against this title? Well, I have several words for what Gran Turismo could do to be a better racing game, but nothing that could tarnish the reputation of this letter to motorsport fans. It's a game with impeccable gameplay, incredible graphics, and makes an ode to the history of motorsport, with the potential to suck up thousands of hours of gameplay (playing alone or online), this year and beyond. If you're a fan of racing games, you won't regret playing it and having it in your collection. Perhaps my biggest mistake was creating expectations for this title. I swore that this was the ideal time for the Gran Turismo series to go back to being revolutionary as it was in the past, but Kazunori Yamauchi chose to just follow the teachings of your old testament.

    If you can suffer through the clunky menus, endless dull dialogue and 100 visits to the cafe, then there’s an excellent racing game somewhere hidden in Gran Turismo 7. It’s baffling that the game does its best to impede you from getting to the track, but when you actually get there, there’s a lot of fun to be had.

    The always online aspect is a negative but other than that this is a top tier Gran turismo.

    now that the patch is out im going to weight my rating a 10 to counteract the review bombing for a bit

    absolutely disgusting. do not buy this game.

    new review after update 1.11 on 07/04/2022:

    the game economy is VASTLY improved. the previous highest reward for one race was Cr. 75,000, now there are lots of races with rewards over Cr. 500,000, and some even over Cr. 1,000,000!

    they have made good on their promise!

While cars are certainly central, you have a world in which you are racing that looks like they copied it from a ps3 game! GT prides itself on being THE driving sim, yet there are literally ZERO physics in this game. How does a sim have no physics? Then you start thinking about the games economy with ridiculous mtx that were recently updated to make it even harder to earn in game currency.

    The dev here seems to have no understanding of the community, and no concern for court of public opinion in really any regard, they obviously didn't care enough about quality to polish the graphics or include physics, and they must think the consumer base is happy to waste their real world money just to be competitive.

    Hard pass.

    Horrible microtransaction progress, the patch update did nothing to solve issues other than to keep players offline for longer than 24 hours.Horrible microtransaction progress, the patch update did nothing to solve issues other than to keep players offline for longer than 24 hours. Absolutely unacceptable. Why is it I can play Forza Horizon 5 and Motorsport 7 offline but I must remain always online for GT7. This is NOT a next gen experience and it's something we were furious about when Microsoft tried to do this with the Original Xbox One during E3 2013. This should be unacceptable even nearly 10 years into the future.

    I also would rather spend $40 on a new game like Nintendo Switch Sports or Tunic than to spend $40 on a bunch of hi resolution models of one singular car for an already $70 game.

Seriously, whoAbsolutely shocked, I WAS enjoying it until the maintenance stuff happened and also... GET RID OF THE MICRO TRANSACTIONS!! Seriously, who thought putting micro transactions in this game was a good idea?? I never intend to buy any form of micro transaction of any kind!! Also why online only? I'm seriously disappointed, whether this review score will change or not in the future , I have no idea but this all needs to be sorted out ASAP Expand
