The [Official] Gran Turismo 5 Thread - Page 32

post #311 of 1152
I think a review summed it up well as a 10/10 racer wrapped up in a 5/10 game. You know there is utter brilliance there, but they bit off a little more than they could chew. But you know, this will be PD's Vista. This will be the product where all the minds were thinking in the right direction, but it didn't quite come together how they hoped.

GT5 is really fun, but, I am looking forward to GT6 (Windows 7!)

Played for some hours yesterday at a friend.
I'm not used to the ps3 first of all,and the setup took 45min whats damn long imo.
After that we tried a arcade game to see whats in for the splitscreen features...damn its 1vs1 and no option to put the ai in?
Multiplayer just freezed in the lobby (had to do a hard rese)
I feel this game is more online based then what it has meant to be,a console game to play on your TV with real life friends next to you...

Visually i'm not blown away either,the shadows are even worse then the first GTA4 shadows on low.
They have nice models tough,AA would be great!
This evening i'm gonna try some more aspects like endurance with the weather effects it looks very challenging.

I've played every GT and i must say,the menu music is boring as hell!
I doubt i will buy a PS3+GT5 pack,(wich i did years ago with GT3)
i'm just not impressed

How about this, you have to unlock Nurburgring Nord. to be used in practice & the same with the Top Gear test track! What the hell is that! The Top Gear trials are extremely hard!

With no practice how are you supposed to get to know the track? By testing on the TG races? Once you go off the track in the slightest your done & if you back off a bit you get killed!

The game was clearly made to be used with a steering wheel! The steering with the controller is more difficult than it should be especially on the NASCAR tracks! You should be able to adjust how touchy it is, or isnt! Not everybody has a wheel!

My favorite is on some of the night races you cant see 2 feet in front of you!

And are you kidding me PD, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is a standard car with no cockpit!

This game should be called Gran Turismo 5 "Incomplete"! Now we know the real reason it was delayed, not because the lame excuse it had to be perfect & not because of pirating the game! If they werent pressured to release it, it would have been another 5 years or more before this came out!

PD just took their sweet time! What the hell were they doing for the past 5 years, partying on the millions that clearly didnt go into the game?

Ok im done ranting, but im still happy its out!

How about this...

Using a wheel, you can't use photo mode

Clutch deadzone (or a biting point?) - @PD -> TDU has this 4 years ago, Gran Turismo is supposed to the "The Real Driving Simulator"

Shadows look like this VVVVVVVV|ZZZZZZZZ|VVVVVVVV

Collisions sound like I've gone slightly deaf and someone is hitting a barrel with a rubber mallet

On the subject of collisions, I thought there was damage in the game?

I wonder if buying this beta will give us a discount off the full game, when they finish it?

When taking the photo (moving the camera or whatever) there is a focus option or something (press triangle) and it should be set to 1, change it to 2
Be warned that photos will be huge (like 1mb+). Check out the photo/replay thread in my sig

I just bought a 458 Italia. I wanted the 430 but i went with this since it was only a bit more and much better, i still have around 100something k left. The grand tour event makes you rich!
