Before I begin my review on this game I’m just going to state my credibility when it comes to the Gran Turismo series. I’ve put in tens of thousands of hours into this series since the first release in 1998 and currently playing the life out of the beta.
You’re most likely wondering why the heck my review summary seems so negative and before you even read this review you will just smash the “unhelpful” button. Calm down, I’ll explain why “I’m” feeling regretful, regretful of preordering Gran Turismo Sport! For almost a year or whenever I heard this was going to be released I’ve been expecting a racing game that I know I’d love, for PS4, since I don’t own an Xbox One and a copy of Forza. I’ve been pumped up and impatient for its release because it’s going to give me something to do instead of playing boring old Call of Duty.
So to answer the question as to why I’m feeling regretful for preordering GTS and not just spending $200 on an Xbox One and $60 for a copy of Forza, it’s because the LACK of cars in GTS! We’ve always had a variety of cars in Gran Turismo and so many variants as well. So to only be getting 162 cars, and the majority of them being clones or boring touring cars, I am sure every car enthusiast will bury themselves in their own grave and turn in it. Why did the developers put 5 different GTR models in the Nissan category? Why not put along with it a 300zx, 350z, 280 and so on. Same with every other manufacturer; We won’t be getting the beloved Supra, S2000, R34, Silvias, Sis’, good old muscle cars; none of that fun stuff and absolutely no variety. The car list is extremely disappointing and I sadly will still get the game in hopes that they will add so many more variety of cars for all car lovers and not this generic list of clones.
So for the final review out of 5:
Gameplay - 4 (so much to do in arcade and campaign and looking forward to the multiplayer. There is a lot of ways to earn money and score to upgrade your cars; as well as daily challenges etc...)
Graphics - 4 (not as fancy looking as in the trailers of the game but nonetheless beautiful)
Car List – 0 (pretty much my review explains it, and if you play the beta you’ll understand)
Tracks – 5 (didn’t play all the tracks but the current ones look amazing and looking forward to driving all 28)
Menu – 5 (from buying cars, upgrading them, dealership, news, taking pictures and so much more, I was pleased and felt spoiled by how much there is to do in the game other than race)
Overall – 3 ( I love this series and look forward to playing the heck out of Gran Turismo Sport because it is and can be extremely fun in so many of way, and until more cars are added into the game I won’t be fully satisfied. One way to fix it is to either sell DLC’s or concurringly add cars into the game.)
