4 out of 5 eggsGran Turismo 5 XL

Pros: Okay, I normally don't do reviews but this game is the most fun I've ever had in a driving sim or game in a long time. For starters, this is a collective review as I believe these accessories are required to fully enjoy what this game has to offer: Logitech G27 wheel (or any force feedback wheel) and a 3D HDTV. Now I realize this may not be Forza 4, may not have the amount of cars or the damage model and physics, or AI up to par with that game, etc. I haven't played it either. In fact, I haven't been much into racing for a while. Last I played was Forza 2 on X360, and I loved it. But I will say with GT5 in 3D and Logitech G27 force feedback wheel, I've never played a racing sim that is so immersive. You just aren't going to get these effects with Forza.

The key here is 3D and force feedback wheel. My setup is an LG 65" 3DTV, and when I first played in 2D, I was thinking.. eh, this is okay. So next I selected 3D and thought hey... the perspective is pretty good. But then, I found the 3D depth settings and convergence settings and cranked em all the way up. That's when the WOW factor kicked in... virtual sim racing at its finest. Feels like a high profile simulation machine, or like you're at an expensive virtual arcade station. Cars really look large in front of you, and the distance in the horizon is really noticeable. May be too much depth for front menu screens, but you can adjust to your liking.

To discuss the Logitech G27 racing wheel, it's got dual motors for strong feedback, a clutch, gas and brake (w/ stiffer brake feel) and 6 speed shifter. You get powerful feedback from the wheel, and it definitely adds to the realism. You must also use the clutch in this game to properly shift gears which is great. Full 900 degree rotation also adds to the experience as you will use it here. You also won't get these features on any
X360 wheel.

The other thing to mention here is that night driving and weather effects are unique to this game. Playing in rain, dirt and snow is an added WOW in this game. The feedback you get on the steering wheel is really different in each environment. On dirt, you feel the bumps and really feel the wheel fight with you. You're counter steering constantly as your tires are sliding on the track. Similar with snow, but has it's own feel also.

On the negative side... good lordy, the install time. Atrocious! Takes likes a few hrs with all the updates. Once it's done, all is grand. It also probably doesn't have the library of cars I know I'd be able to get in Forza, but I'm okay with it. Aside from this, it's been pure enjoyment. In conclusion, it's a racing title that is a must for any PS3 owner and car lover. Best car game to date! 3D is the future, I don't think I could possibly enjoy a 2D racing title ever again.

Cons: Long install, a few hours!

Other Thoughts: Best Racer Available

5 out of 5 eggsThe best there is!

Pros: - Realistic vehicle graphics and sounds
- Over 1000 cars
- Varied tracks and races
- Extreme car tuning and descriptions
- Classy Music!

Cons: - Sub-par crash physics
- Steep learning curve
- Credits (Money) is hard to earn unless online

Other Thoughts: This is THE Best racing game. Its not really a game. Its a simulator and despite its flaws, Gran Turismo 5 has perfected its craft of anything there is to know about cars.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!!!

Pros: Graphics
Physics

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Love the GT series. Gran Turismo and Metal Gear Solid are two reasons I own a PS3 in the first place.

2 out of 5 eggsGraphic is terrible

Pros: 2 players can play on the console.

Cons: Game especially now in 2012 has to be much better about video graphic. And if it does not looks like 2012 games you can throw this game to the garbage. Same game from dice like Need4speed is 100 times better than this one. Don't recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGT5

Pros: This game is great. For those who complain about load times, you just simply need to install the game to the Hard Drive. GT5 has a lot of data. Slow load times from the disc drive are a limitation of the physical hardware... NOT the game. Reading from the Hard Drive is MUCH faster.

Cons: NONE

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Hmmm

Cons: Not very different from old version, loading time, confusing menus, longer time to open up circuits in career mode

Other Thoughts: I was disappointed with this. It didn’t seem that much different than GT4, other than there’s more tracks, but that’s offset by time wasted waiting for tracks to load (unless you want to wait 40 minutes to have the data loaded onto the drive). The menus are overly confusing and it also seems like it takes longer to open up circuits in career mode, so I found myself having to repeat races too much to gain experience points.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Spec 2, Comes with all the DLC, except the latest car pack.

Saves Download times if you have slow internet i guess.. or have no internet at all..

Cons: Do NOT use NEWEGG EGG SAVER Shipping! Pay the extra $ for the UPS 3 Day!!

Other Thoughts: Bought this one because my PS3 got the YLOD luckily backed up my saves a day before, sold the regular GT5 shortly after, decided to Re-Flow the GPU back to the Mobo after 6 months and its working again, for now..
