      Worth adding to the collection but only for posterity

      We as a gaming community had to wait for 5 years for gran turismo 5 to surface, in the mean time 'Prologue' is what we were given. Its not the first time Polophony Digital have boosted the coffers by releasing prologue or concept versions of games but this one was a disappointment.

      PD told us this was not a new game and there were many features lacking, and they were right. Only a few tracks and about 75 cars by the final update and for any self respecting fan thats just not enough.

      It was however GT's first appearence on the PS3 and boy does it look good. GT was made for high definition and even in this early release the cars and locations are stunning. It is obvious that the physics has had a tewak or two but it is no comparison to the finished product.

      One of the most eagerly awaited features of GT5 is the online play, which is poorly supported in prologue, although you can race against others online, there is no pairing or friends options so you are always against random players and the quality is a little jumpy.

      What this title did do is offer the first full pedal support for the G25 wheel. Allowing you to use manual gears including full clutch operation and this in itself made the title worth a buy. The ability to drift a rear wheel drive car by kicking the clutch to lose traction is not a feature found in 'games', it makes this 'simulator' fantastic.

      As a stand alone game, GT5 prologue is not worth a look now that GT5 is here. But if, like me, you own every incarnation of GT it can be added to your collection for less than £20 but it will never get touched.
