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.

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.

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.

I love this racing game. Gran Turismo is fantastic game you will spend hours playing. The selection of the cars, the pace of the game, and the ability to quickly get used to driving this game (all racing games vary in steering, speed, and other attributes) make this an excellent addition to your PSP game collection.

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.

Great to see this game on PSP for the first time. Gran Turismo is arguably one of the most popular race car franchises in the gaming world. The game features enhanced graphics, new cars, and new music all over to give its players a new refreshing attitude to playing.

The Good: Superb visuals, lots of tracks and cars, simple interface

The Bad: No career mode, no vehicle upgrades, no online play, iffy audio, slipstream is a bad idea, random dealerships

Hate me all you want, but Gran Turismo on the PSP is a huge disappointment. Why? Well, first off this game has been floating around the vaporware bin since 2004 and now 5 years later we get a half done game. Where's the career mode? That's my biggest question. Instead we are forced to pick everything ourselves. This doesn't have anything to do with laziness either. I like my career modes in Gran Turismo and this is the first game in the series that doesn't have one. Another thing you'll notice missing is there's no way to upgrade your cars...ouch.

Like every GT game once you start the game up you head to the dealership, but that's where the problems already start. It's random...yeah you get four or five random dealerships every day in the game. You see a car you want? Sure! Normally you just save up for it, but then when you go back the dealership is gone...why Polyphony chose this stupid idea is beyond me.

The game also lies about there being 500 different cars. There are a few models of each different car so you're only looking at about 200 some odd different types of cars. The game gives you some interesting back story on each car, but viewing the stats is a nightmare since they just scroll by without a still data sheet or something of the like.

Once you start getting into a race it's simple enough. Choose your track, number of laps, and the car from your garage. You can use quick tune options or do a bit of fine tuning, but the default works just fine.

I played the first 2 Gran Turismo games when they came out (and I still play them to this day). I love them.

This game however I do not love. Here is why.

1. The loading times are brutal. It feels like you wait 10 minutes just to get from menu to menu.
2. The physics haven't come that far from the Playstation 1 version.
3. The PSP version of GT lacks variety in cars compared to older editions of the game. In the old days you could see all the cars and they were all available to you immediately if you could afford them. The map navigation from the PS1 version was fun also.

If I need racing simulation the pc is the best place to go. I'll stick to Richard Burns Rally and Race On. If you want a good driving experience on the PSP I recommend Grip Shift. Its not a racing simulator but the physics are top notch. If you're into cars and don't care about physics; for the PSP I recommend Street Supremacy, The Fast and Furious, and Juiced.
