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.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair Compromise March 28, 2011
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wait till it is $[...] October 15, 2009
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gran Turismo December 15, 2009
By Burnzy
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars GT perfectionist touch now in the palm of your hand December 6, 2009
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I will keep it short and sweet because many reviews here are very clear about what is included and what is not in the game, so here is my take on GT PSP

I bought GT PSP at launch and i play it almost every day since then. GT fans know Poliphony Digital developer is all about perfection and details. GT on the PSP is true to the GT heritage of bringing top quality. The car's sounds are great, physics are tight, graphics are eye candy on the go. The game's fidelity to its big brothers is so remarkable that i was playing the PSP version one day and later i went to the GT 4 version with the logitech wheel (sweet :), and the driving lines i picked on the PSP game where useful on the PS2 game, something that points to the fidelity of car behavior found on GT PSP.

Awesome game, perfect for on the go gaming (quickies), and if one resist the temptation of comparing it to its big brothers, the game is as close to perfection as it gets. Highly Reccomended
