Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale throughout North America on Wednesday, November 24th. With perfect physics, 100 tracks, over 1,000 cars, a full Blu-ray of content and more modes and challenges than Takeshi’s castle GT5 is not only the best Gran Turismo game to date, or even the best racing game to date — but could quite possibly be the one of the best games to date. Being a flagship title GT5 supports all of the latest technology Sony has to offer. This includes both 3D and PlayStation Move, as well as supporting all of the expected steering wheel peripherals.
Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) has an interface usability enthusiasts should take note from. The intuitive and simple menu structure allows you to quickly jump from menu to menu while the beautiful visuals remain a constant back drop throughout. Sleek and minimalistic design is prevalent and the smooth jazz amplifies the overall unrivalled quality of the game. Like it predecessors Gran Turismo 5 doesn’t disappoint in the graphical department. Every car looks beautiful and it’s easy to forget sometimes that it is actually a game you are viewing not an episode of Top Gear. This is the first time Gran Turismo has included damage and although the physics damage is impressive and the separation of body parts adding a greater sense of realism for premium cars the damage feels wooden.
Unlike other games where you hit walls at high-speed and your vision becomes blurred and distorted in Gran Turismo 5 there is no such effects. A new addition to the Gran Turismo series Gran Turismo 5 contains a feature rich rally mode, WRC. This de allows you to take on time trial tracks against the clock through both day and night and in-between. The damage really plays a large role here with it affecting the drivability of your car and in night-time your visibility. The NASCAR mode is very similar to the rally mode in which you can choose a team and progress through the leaderboards to earn points. The multiplayer aspect of Gran Turismo 5 has been completely revamped from Prologue with a full lobby system integrated tightly. A lobby can be created that can hold up to 32 people, and each race 16 of those can play while the other 16 can spectate, trade cars, view each others standings, profiles and chat. Points are collated together and full-blown tournaments can be created, including real-time events such as the Le-Mann 24hrs endurance race.
