Gran Turismo 4 features authentic racing gameplay with new fully-enhanced features that focus on more cars, courses and race modes. Developed by Polyphony Digital Inc., Gran Turismo 4 uses an all-new physics engine coupled with revolutionary technology to deliver enhanced, if not perfected, game physics and graphics providing a near-realistic automotive racing simulation.
Are you searching for a driving game that offers more than just breakneck speed? Look no further than Gran Turismo 4. The most recent installment in this amazingly popular racing game brings realistic driving to a whole new level. With loads of new cars and a vastly improved physics engine, you'll be ready to tackle the roads in your favorite cars from the last century.
Automotive history is at your fingertips with Gran Turismo 4. You can select from over 700 cars, dating back nearly a century to the 1915 Ford Model T Tourer. From the United Kingdom's AC to Sweden's Volvo, you'll can choose from practically every car manufactured since 1915.
Beyond the list of cars, GT4 sports a new and vastly improved physics engine. Offering even greater realism than its predecessors, the GT4 engine has been meticulously designed to cover every inch and turn of your driving experience. Using physics to calculate weight, speed, friction, and a host of other nuances, every car delivers performance with its own unique, precise handling and feel.
This game isn't just about the cars, though -- it's also about the competition. The advanced, lifelike drivers compete with fervor unmatched even by some of your video game buddies. Fueled by the latest advances in artificial intelligence, your digital rivals will react to your every move with behavior modeled after actual professional racers.
It may take you weeks to test drive all 700 available cars, but with Gran 4 you'll never truly run out of "new" vehicles. This game is equipped with a multitude of options to customize your favorite cars. Brakes, shocks, and engine components can all be upgraded. You can stylize your car with wings, rims, and color, and you can even change your oil. In short, you can do whatever needs to be done to keep your car tuned and looking hot for the next big race.
The Human Element
Gran Turismo 4 brings something completely new to your gaming experience. In the stands you'll find spectators who comes to life in 3D before your very eyes. They react with genuine human emotions to your every move, cheering as you pass, and snapping photographs as you cross the finish line. Your next pit stop will take place as if you were really there. You'll watch the process unfold in real-time as your crew rushes to change your tires and refuel your tank. But that's not all. With the new addition of convertibles, you are truly in the drivers seat. Your drivers will react with precise and fluid motions, and turn just as you would if you were behind the wheel. Gran Turismo has never looked so unbelievably real.
Not only does GT4 bring you the rare opportunity to drive hundreds of cars, it also offers you a vast collection of actual racing locations. Rip through the exotic Costa di Malfi in Capri, burn rubber through the urban jungle of Hong Kong, or throw up some serious dust at the Grand Canyon -- no matter where you decide to race, you'll love driving any of the game's fourteen tracks. Feeling nostalgic? With Gran 4, you can even race on some of your old, favorite tracks from previous editions.
Compete against your buddies with the LAN play functionality of GT4. Connect up to three PlayStation 2 consoles and bring together up to six players in a racing frenzy that pits you against your friends. Each console will need a copy of Gran Turismo 4, the proper connecting cables, and all the standard gaming equipment. Once connected, you'll be ready for a life-like battle of driving abilities and mental toughness. With LAN play, the action has never been more intense or more realistic!

Plus the graphics in GT4 are far superior to GT3. Did u know this game actually supports 1080 HD output? Unheard of in 2005! The most spectacular PS2 game ever made. Thanks, Japan!
My only (minor) criticism of the game is the soundtrack. Not my style. This is one area where it's predecessor, GT3 was far better.
I own GT3, GT4, GT5, and GT6. It's still fun to go back and play GT4 with some of the old cars not available on the newer versions. Plus, I like the used car lot option on GT3 and GT4. They should have kept that for the newer versions.
I loved Gran Turismo 3 because it was the deepest, most realistic racing game I'd ever played. The graphics were great, the handling was true, and the career mode was insanely deep.
All those things are true about GT 4. The graphics are even better, to the point that I had to do a double take and make sure that these pretty pictures were coming from my PS2 and not my Xbox! The same depth is here, with literally hundreds of cars to unlock, and a career mode that rivals RPG's in depth and time to complete. The new "photography" mode is cool, at least for a little while, and the ability to download the pix you create is ingenious.
Now for the disappointment, aka: the reason this game didn't get 5 stars. This is basically THE SAME GAME as Gran Turismo 3. There are some tweaks (mainly graphical), more cars, but nothing really new or innovative. There is no online mode, which means that in many ways this game is behind last year's Project Gotham Racing 2, and this year's Forza Motorsport (which, by the by, has the Ferrari and Lamborghini license GT4 lacks). The Uber-annoying licensing tests are back, which means you can expect to slog through hours of tutorial-level gameplay before being able to race... some crappy underpowered import on a lame track. I know this game is deep, but you really have to have patience to make it to the fun cars. At least you can transfer up to 100k of your GT3 credits and A/B licenses over from a GT3 savegame, which is nice.
There is nothing "wrong" with this game, but it's just that it feels a bit bland and personality-less. It's technically perfect, the graphics are gorgeous, but it's missing something.
The graphics are excellent for a ps2 game. The controls are good, better if you get the driving force wheel. The sound effects are excellent. There is a wide variety of music which plays during races and replays. You can create your own playlist of music so that you never have to listen to a song that you don't like.
There are plenty of tracks, and plenty of races to participate in. Getting licenses can be frustrating, but worth it since you learn techniques required to win races.
Cheap and long lasting entertainment for a mere [...], which would get you only 2 hours in a theater.
