First off as the title says be careful buying this right about now. The copy I got in Feb. had a 3/31/2013 expiration date on the DLC voucher. I don't know if they will be updating them or not. So a heads up if you are looking to buy any time soon.
Even with the XL version there is some DLC content that is not included so it is not a complete edition. Not a big deal to me because there is so much content here anyway it will be a while before I get around to having to buy any more to keep things fresh.
This game is classic GT. I have been playing them all since the first one so if you have played any in the past you know what to expect. What continues to frustrate me is the ... full review
Finally after such a long wait GT5 is here sure the graphics are of standard cars are mid core and shadows are fuzzy and weird but at the end of along day bashing the game with the bad stuff , whats left is pure racing fun . I played many racing games from dirt to hot pursuit to burnout sure the games were fun in each of their own genres of racing but as racing simulator games this is extremely fun and addictive game which has something for every one . There is nothing as exhilarating as turning your traction off and hitting and drifting through a corner in a Nissan skyline which gives you Simulated adrenalin !!!
"Best racing game I've ever played!" - By Teodor Disho (Cherry Hill, NJ, USA)
I called a few different stores today and found one that received its delivery of GT4 at 1115 EST. Needless to say, I was there ten minutes later and picked up a copy and quickly went home to try it out. This is without a doubt the best racing game I've ever played. The models are realistic, the gaming engine is remarkable, and there are so many cars to pick from. The game is started with 10,000 credits, and there are two areas in which to buy used cars. They offer cars from the early 90s in one "shop", and cars from 95-on in another. Both have quite a selection below the 10,000 credit mark and there are quite a few choices one can make in order to decide which car to start it all off with. The licensing portion is a little mundane at first but it gets progressively ... full review
"A passionate labor of love to give us the drive of our life." - By The Matrix Fan
Wow. Trying to give Gran Turismo 5: Prologue a complete review is like trying to count the grains of sand on the beach in Ashikita, but I'll do my best.
Whether you are a new player of Gran Turismo or a long-time fan like myself, the only place to truly start is choosing the Gran Turismo TV option and watch the video "Beyond The Apex". I watched this video at least 4 times before I even started playing the game.
We get to meet Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo's creator. This man loved cars by age 8, and his love has developed into a lifelong dream of providing video gamers the perfect balance between car beauty, and car functionality.
But this is no easy task - for example, his development team took great pains to take 20-30,000 pictures of just ONE racetrack over a 2 month timeframe! Why? ... full review
"PS3 - Racing Simulations are more realistic" - By J. J. Marino (127.0.0.1)
First off, let me open with this wheel is not without fault. However, this has to be the best gaming peripheral I have ever owned. I will go into detail about the niggly little things later on. For now lets cover how incredible this wheel system is for driving games.
I have used this on a PS3 slim. Prior to this I had only driven [[ASIN:B001UEN68I Dirt 2]] & [[ASIN:B001TORSHO Need for Speed: Shift]] by using my [[ASIN:B0015AARJI PlayStation 3 Dualshock 3 Wireless Controller]]. This often had me tapping the turn motion on one of the joysticks. This left alot to be desired if you were doing a slow left or right turn at speed it often caused the rear end to break loose and eventually I lost momentum or worse wrecked.
I am no stranger to the motto right tool for the right job. Back in the ... full review
Just got this wheel the other day from Amazon, and I can say that this is the best wheel I have used to date.
I previously used a Thrustmaster Enzo, which while it had strong force feedback, had a bad dead spot, and wasn't very easy to drive. Also, the pedals needed to have a 50lbs dumbbell set behind them so they wouldn't move. Also, the feedback was rather clunky, but better than nothing.
Next, I moved on to the Logitech Momo (which is essentially a Driving Force Pro for the PC; same motor, gears, and bearing system). A better wheel than the Enzo in some areas; the pedal setup was miles better, with the (probably) patented carpet tack thingy found on most Logitech Wheels, but also not as strong a feedback motor as on the the Enzo. Also, the force feedback never felt as fluid as I ... full review
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 ... full review
If you're reading this, you're probably already a MGS fan. And if you're a MGS fan then you probably already have most of the content included in this collection. Still, that doesn't completely devalue this collection. I give it 4 stars because of the convenience of having all the games in one box. But I can't give it 5 stars because this is just an enhanced version of the HD Collection that came out just a few years ago. Konami is double dipping and abusing fan loyalty by offering us the Legacy Collection. The included extras are neat, but if you're not a die-hard collector then you probably won't care for them. The art book is small and simply includes photos of Playstation box art. They're all pictures we've seen a thousand times before lining the shelves of Gamestop. A major disappointment.
"THE racing game for PSone" - By SportingBlue (Kansas City, KS)
Okay, so it's a little old by now, but this rolls all over any racing game on PSone. Sadly, like most PSone games, the graphics aren't very good now. As I remember, GT2's graphics weren't even very good for their time. But the number and variety of cars is better than probably ten PSone racing games combined, and even the mighty GT3. It set a high standard which most games of even the next generation struggled with. The opponent AI isn't as lifelike as playing online, but at least you don't have some idiot constantly trying to spin you out. When one of those lame value-priced racing games shows up on shelves, I often ask myself why people can't just dust off any Gran Turismo game and have a lot more fun.
I live in the United States and the game plays on my U.S. PS3, but all the downloadable content, given by a code in the package, requires you to have a United Kingdom account, the U.S. Playstation store does not recognize the code in the games box/package, so I would recommend if you live in the U.S. like me, you purchase the regular GT5 or the GT5 XL Edition and then buy the different car packs if you want from the PStation store, BUT as I said the game does work on U.S. systems, or should I say, it worked on my system, but the codes do not and the U.S. downloadable content found on the Playstation network do not work with this game either since it is from the UK
