Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)
Advantages: great fun and great new features.
Disadvantages: Im too addicted!
This game took an age to be released! It came out over a year later than first thought, but my gosh was it worth the wait! the game has really taken racing games on the ps3 to the next level! the graphics are incredible and completely better than any other game on the market. You can tell that so much effort has gone into the game to get the graphics just right and make sure everything you see on the screen during races and general game play is perfect! I have been addicted to this game for over a year now, and I hope they release a new one in the future because Gran Turismo games have always been the best on any platform. I will now go into more detail on the product and give my views!
I was luckily given this as a birthday present not long after is was released. When it first came out it was £45, now you can pick it up for under £30. its well worth paying for, If you shop around online you can probably get it much cheaper, and pre-owned versions on ebay are very cheap. Shop around :)
The game has gone back to the older style of having different levels you must master from beginer to expert to higher! It means that when you first start you will win every race, but it doesnt take long for it to get harder. Its great because you actually have to have skill and put work into your car to make it competitive, you have to change little things that will help shave time off your laps. Its not hard to master either! I find the graphics during the race is great and the cars are stunning to look at. There is also another huge selection of cars from the classics to brand new super cars. Its a great feeling when you save up your race win money and can buy a brand new car. You can also buy used cars.
The liscenses are hard to get and take time. you will spend hours trying to pass some levels, but its fun and adds to the challenge of the game. Once you have got all of your liscenses you can do all of the races when you unlock them.
This game allows you to go up levels, and you have to be a certain level to unlock certain races, you can get up to level 40, but each level you go up, the harder it is to get onto the next one. You can either race in B spec of A spec. Both you only earn points for the mode you choose. (A spec is when you drive the car and B spec is when the computer drives, but your in control of how they race).
Online is also brilliant and you can race against up to 16 other players. It takes online racing to the next level and believe me you will become addicted to it! You can also play two player split screen with a mate in the arcade section like in previous games.
--- overall ---
This game is brilliant and has so many new features, it takes a long time to complete and you get your monies worth with this. if you enjoy any form of racing, then you will enjoy this and if you havent already, go and buy it!!
Thanks for reading, I will be giving this a 5 star rating!
Summary: Well worth the long wait for the game
