Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)
Advantages: fantastic graphics and plenty to do in game- the dream for any car fanatic
Disadvantages: it could take up all your free time
I have been playing this game for a couple of years, and I am neither bored with it nor am I any closer to finishing it- it is truly a massive game and there's always new DLC to keep you occupied.
Gran Turismo is a classic racing series that has always prided itself on realism- outrun this is not! The realism is best experienced though a dedicated steering wheel and pedals, and some of the most expensive systems can run for a hundreds of pounds, but I have been having lots of fun with an older, cheaper logitech wheel.
You can really feel the effort they have put into the game- not only do the cars feel noticably different to drive (from what I can gather than do actually 'feel' like their reel world equivalent) but tweaking and tuning them also dramatically changes how they handle- the tweaking in this game isn't just for aesthetics- you can actually set up a car to perform better on certain tracks.
the selection of cars is insane- from obvious supercars like the ferrari f430, to some rarer cars that will make car nuts happy.
The graphics are incredible, the car models beautiful. I won't go on about how long the game is but it does have infinite replay value as it never gets boring to race cars around circuits- so treat yourself to a copy of the game with a nice wheel and say goodbye to your weekends.
Summary: endless amounts of fun
