Top Customer Reviews
Loads of races, some of which can be quite frustrating, but all of them are winnable if you practice a lot and learn how to tweak your performance. Good online features like seasons, quick play, and a community, including car clubs.
Almost all of the cars have full customization options properly fitting a driving simulator. The handful that cant be customized are specialty cars more for fun than competition, and those are usually excellent vehicles anyway.
I only have two major complaints and one of them is easily fixable.
First is the default PS3 controller really isnt too good for racing games, particularly this one. I bought an inexpensive replacement with better thumbsticks and that problem went away immediately.
My real problem is you ALWAYS start in last place on any single player mission. The only time you get random placement is during online matches. This can make winning certain tough events quite annoying. Other than that I have no serious issues and enjoy playing GT6 for hours at a time. Theres always something new to purchase or customize, and plenty of different play modes to keep me interested.
Highly recommended at any price.
But the GT series is getting a bit long in tooth and needs some updating, and I mean more than just its UI or adding newer cars. I'm talking things like...
* The AI, which is so bad that it necessitates we continue the silly "start in last place every time" thing, if not outright giving them up to a minute or more of a head start!
* The lack of adjustable difficulty. Do I really need 2/3 of the game's races to be absurdly easy? As it is, the slow car races are both low speed *and* something that can be beaten with little skill.
* The assuming I've never played a racing game before (do I really need to do all the license tests every time a new GT game comes out?).
* The grind. I've driven over 25 hours already, according to the in-game stats, and I've earned around 15 million credits. Yes, I still haven't made enough to afford just one of the most expensive, most-rare cars (which are 10-20 million credits each). Now, don't get me wrong, I don't expect to own even a quarter of the 1,100 or so cars in the game by this point, but it'd be nice to be able to afford the '67 Ferrari 330 P4 or the '69 Ford GT40 race car by now. Honestly, I'm confused about the intent here--am I expected spend nothing for the next 20 hours of playing to afford one of these cars? Or am I supposed to buy credits with real money (a new option for GT).
But we still have a game with an absolutely massive number of cars (though, sadly, still no Porsche and still *way* too much emphasis on Japanese cars in general and Nissan in particular), fantastic physics, and a very, very nice selection of tracks. For avid racing/car fans, this is still a good game to get. But realize that, if you played GT5, you're definitely going to be experiencing a distinct feeling of deja vu.
If you understand the pacing of the game, and sink your teeth deep into all the content that it has; you will find that it's a great game. This is an amazing game, I don't think there's any other racing game on this level on PS3, or even on PC.
I personally disregard the hateful comments on this game, I think it comes from people without patience... If you dwell on the negative points, such as the install times, and if you tend to get angry about minimal nuisances, this game (or anything that requires patience) isn't for you.
