The Cars
Every Gran Turismo game throughout the years has been dedicated to providing players with a real racing experience, and Gran Turismo for PSP is no different. All about the cars and the tracks, Gran Turismo is packed with more than 800 real cars, from real manufacturers from around the globe. These cars come from every sector of the automotive industry; including everything from ultra fast performance cars, to slower classic cars from various eras. Every car in Gran Turismo is unlocked from the get-go and are waiting to be collected. With each race won much needed cash will be deposited in players accounts bring them that much closer each day to buying the specific rides that they will need to stock their garages.

Two Ways to Play in Single Player
Gran Turismo features two ways to play in the single player campaign. First is a quick race, an option in which players race against three AI opponents in standard races, time trials or drift challenges. The second race type are driver challenges, in which players complete for gold, silver, and bronze trophies in races that test the entire gamut of their driving skills. In all races every track is unlocked, but with each victory on a track the quality of a player's AI opponent rises.

Challenge Friends in Multiplayer
Gran Turismo features four-racer support in local wireless ad hoc multiplayer races. Within these competitions players have multiple options in races, including the choice of racing in the car of their choice, as well as handicap racing options in which players proven to be less skilled are given an automatic headstart, or those same racers given faster cars while the more skilled racers race a less advance model. Players are also able to trade vehicles in their garages over an ad hoc connection in swaps that once approved. Trades consist of an automatic swap of any car a friend does not already have and vice-versa.

Get a Headstart on Your GT5 Experience
Gran Turismo for PlayStation Portable features a surprising added bonus. Capitalizing on the built-in cross compatibility between the PSP and the PS3, Gran Turismo for PSP players will be able to get a headstart on their Grand Turismo 5 experience. Players will be able to transfer all the cars that they are able to stuff into their Gran Turismo garages directly into GT5 on day one.

While I appreciate the fact that with this version of GT I have access to all the cars and tracks from the get-go, the lack of a career mode really makes the gameplay get tiring quickly. Plus, in each race you have only three other components, one of which is really dumb but none of which is difficult to beat. The city courses in particular feel less than satisfying due to limited scene rendering and short circuits. But overall, though, for gamers like me who like realistic driving on the go (when we're not driving a real car), this game is quite fun. I do hope the price gets lowered so more PSP gamers can enjoy it.

The graphics are impressive - it really shows off the power of the PSP. But sadly, beauty is but skin deep here. It appears that the game was geared entirely towards brief gaming due to the PSP platform - but its not what hardcore GT fans were hoping for.

There is no career mode or customization is highly limited. Think of it as GT lite - Polydigital's take on an arcade game rather than a simulation. Purchasing cars makes little difference other than that you have yet another car. All AI players are in cars selected from those comparable in power to your own so there's nothing to be gained by having a higher power car or a specific make/model needed to enter a particular race. There's no point in choosing a harder compound tire over soft as there's no tire wear for it to make a difference. Issues like this makes the game feel incomplete.

The 3 stars is based on paying $11 for the game. I'd be upset paying more than that.

There is no career mode in this game. It lacks structure. The only incentive to keep playing is to win one race at a time so that you can earn money to purchase more cars. There are limited tuning options, but car parts cannot be upgraded.

The graphics are good. However, I think all the tracks originated in other versions of Gran Turismo. Also, there are only four cars on the track during the race.

There is no internet multiplayer. If you want to play against another human being, you will need to have friends with PSPs.

In short, this game is not worth full price. If your a fan, you've waited four years for this game. Save some money and wait a little longer.

What can i say about this game: it IS what other racing games should try to be like. The graphics are phenominal. There are many orginal Gran Turismo courses that you will find on the Playstation version. There is a wide selection of cars. But, like with everything else though, there are some bads. The tracks can get boring, about every 2-3 days (time on the game), only 4 different dealerships are avilible, and in those 4 dealerships, thery only offer about 12 different cars at a time. You also can't manually adjust the engine components (e.g., turbo, boost, etc.). You can, however, adjust the camber, caster, dampers, spring rate, and ride height. Overall, despite the somewhat repeditivness of the game, it is a definite must have for the PSP.

Originally announced as one of the flagship titles of the then yet to be released PSP, Gran Turismo Mobile quickly dropped off of the radar into vaporware territory. Well, imagine everyone's surprise when, at E3 2009, Sony and Polyphony Digital confirmed that Gran Turismo PSP was not only in active development but that it was also going to be released this year. After all this time, you'd think the PSP iteration of the long running and obscenely popular Gran Turismo series would measure up quite nicely with its console predecessors. Regrettably, if you thought that, you'd be mistaken.

While this title boasts a very impressive 800+ car roster and a fairly large selection of tracks, many of which can be driven in reverse, and a realistic handling model lifted from Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, it can't compete with its console brethren due to one very large and disappointing omission. The career mode of Gran Turismo games past is missing in action in Gran Turismo PSP.

In lieu of any kind of career mode, you have the option to run a time trial, single race or drift trial and only the latter two will earn you the valuable credits you'll need to build a vast collection of automobiles, both classic and modern. In addition to this, there are a large number of "Driving Challenges" to test your skills. These challenges are almost identical to the dreaded license tests in Gran Turismo games past, the primary differences being that they (thankfully) aren't mandatory completions in order to enter certain races and reward you with credits for completion in the bronze, silver and gold tiers.

Starting out, you are given 100,000 credits and presented with four of the game's many dealerships from which to buy your first car.

Let's get it over with: this is NOT the same game as its big brothers on PS2/PS3. The biggest difference is that there is no career mode, making it seem "boring" to a lot of reviewers.

That being said, this is a portable game and I believe was meant by the developers to be GT "on the go". Sure, you could manage a career on a portable system and I can see how fans of the full-sized versions can be upset that it's not here. But, in my opinion, this game is meant to be played in bursts, to which most people owning a portable system can appreciate.

Smaller? Yes. Boring? Not as bad as people say. I personally enjoy having the beauty of Gran Turismo in my hands to play when I want and not have to worry about keeping my career going. On the flip side, I like having more than 800 different cars and 35 different tracks (that can be driven reverse), leaving a taste of the immense depth the big brothers have. I also like that only 4 car manufacturers at a time per day show up for you to buy cars from. It forces you to be patient in waiting for the car you want and/or need.

Take these points with you and give it a go.
