  1. Is it really that realistic? The answer to that is a plain "YES." When you have a PlayStation steering wheel, you could practice for your real-life driver's license with this game.
  2. 100
    Turismo rockets to the top with unbelievable depth, raucous arcade action, challenging sim gameplay, and more cars than a mall parking lot. It’s worth every penny.
  3. If you can get past its slightly intimidating barrier to entry (getting your license to race in this game is trickier than the real thing), you'll play Gran Turismo for months and months and never see all of its glory. This is a classic.
  4. The biggest, best and sexiest racing game ever. What we have here is a gigantic car game that's such enormous fun to play because of three main elements: unparalleled realism, ground-breaking graphics and the chance to spend a lot of money.
  5. 95
    One of the most exquisite racers ever to hit the PlayStation. Its alluring features will keep you glued to your seat for months, if not years. In fact I haven't driven my real car in three weeks.

    The replays had some of us doing double-takes to make sure we weren't watching real race footage. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  7. Before you can enter a given circuit, you must obtain certification in the form of a license. If you don't pass, you can't race. This is certainly the most controversial aspect of the game and the reason that Gran Turismo scores only an 8 in gameplay.

    The Best Game Ever? Not quite. But a very important one, nonetheless. I was too young to enjoy it when it first came out (I always lost), butThe Best Game Ever? Not quite. But a very important one, nonetheless. I was too young to enjoy it when it first came out (I always lost), but five years later, and wow. I play it on my PSP even now. Anyone reading this probably all ready knows what to expect, so I won't ramble on. While the new generation systems have remarkable capabilities, every racing game after this one will still have a hard time measuring up. Expand

    A l'époque, ce fut une petite révolution : un nouveau genre était né et un véritable mode "carrière". Une tripotée de voitures pour l'époqueA l'époque, ce fut une petite révolution : un nouveau genre était né et un véritable mode "carrière". Une tripotée de voitures pour l'époque (à 95% japonaises mais bon...) et des graphismes bluffants pour une PS1 !

    Cela étant, la conduite n'était pas très entousiasmante, le comportement était pour le moins simpliste avec des réactions que n'aurait pas renié un mauvais Need For Speed mais qui restaient réalistes à côté d'un Ridge Racer (tout est relatif en effet !). Je n'y ai pas passé beaucoup de temps (le jeu mal dégrossi finissait par ennuyer) et lui ai toujours préféré son successeur (GT2) amélioré sur tous les points.
