2 out of 5 eggsWait for Completed Version

Pros: Graphics are great. 1080p output is nice on hd tvs.

Cons: No tuning options. A lot less playtime than other GT series. No rally races. Only a few 2player mode races. Several cars are missing that were in the other games.

Other Thoughts: I was shocked when I realized that I couldn't add a turbo or any other upgrade to any of the cars I purchased in the game. The best I could do was use some "performance points", which were limited in each race. After really being upset with my purchase, I decided to read up on the game a bit. It seems that this is just a 'pre-release' version of the real game that is due out later this year. Unless you're a collector, I would wait until then, because this game isn't all that fun. It's mostly just for getting acquainted with the interface and graphics. The gameplay is very lacking. I only played this for a day before becoming bored (unlike the other games). I'll be buying the completed version when it comes out later this year. It should be much better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sneak peek

Pros: Fantastic graphics (for a minute I thought the opening screenplay was real video rather than CG). Fun game, definitely worth it to invest in a steering wheel.

Cons: Still looking for some.... :)

Other Thoughts: Can't wait for the final release next year.

5 out of 5 eggsI can't believe it's not butter...

Pros: I can't believe it's a prologue...online and offline play is great.

Cons: I wish the price on the steering wheel was cheaper...really would help in getting further in the game.

Other Thoughts: You won't go wrong with this if you;re a fan of driving/racing sims. Everything's pretty much perfect....2 player mode could be better. You gotta use component/hdmi cables to get the most of out ps3 system/games...makes a huge difference.

4 out of 5 eggsGood game

Pros: 50 cars and 10 tracks(that's including the reverse option on each of the 5 tracks during arcade mode). The graphics are stunning in HD, has a good balance of difficulty throughout the game, tuning(unlocked after you beat A class), the other CPU players can make mistakes and GTTV(watch videos).

Cons: The penalty system is a little bit broken and you can't get some videos that are available for free in GTTV. I can't "buy" a video that is free and in the pricetag area it says free but some of the other free videos I have been able to download say free but in the pricetag area it says $0.00; the videos that say free in the pricetag area either do not show up in the PSN cart or displays an error.

Other Thoughts: The game is well worth it if you already got a PS3 but if you want to play the whole GT5 game will have to wait for it's release as this game I'm reviewing is a "Demo"(hence the word Prologue is in the title of the game). Polyphony Digital, developer of the game, made this game for a reason as they wanted to learn how to develop for the new playstation platform. They also did do this with the PS2 with GT3 when they were migrating to the PS2 platform from the PS1. If you want to play the full game, you are just going have to wait.

1 out of 5 eggsGrand Turismo

Pros: Quick load time and nice graphics.

Cons: Not many tuneing options. Not as fun as some of the other grand turismos and the driving isnt as realistic as it could be.

Other Thoughts: Need more tuning options

3 out of 5 eggsGlorified demo

Pros: Its Gran Turismo, I've been following this series since the first installment. Looks good, the in car cam is totally sweet. I will only play from the in car cam now.

Cons: Overpriced, very short, I beat the entire "demo" the first day. No customizing, short races,

NO DAMAGE! C'mon GT, Forza and Grid can do it, so can you...its not that I want it for crashing, but if this is a simulater when I accidentally lose control and smash into another car or wall, I expect to see the effects of my mistake. I don't want to be able to bump into a car and keep going without consequences. I want to see things like reduced HP, tranny problems, flat tires, cosmetic damage, etc...it all adds to the realism. I hope the full version of the game will address these issues but I've already convinced myself otherwise.

Other Thoughts: Despite my rating of 3 stars and the cons I mentioned, this is still a good game. Its pricey for what ya get but I can't pass up driving sims.
