it seems like most of the big reviewing mags/websites are afraid to give bad reviews to big name games/series. not trying to say this game isn't good or anything since i haven't played it but madden continues to get like 8 or 9 ratings when its horrible

Hit up the store thinking it came out today and found out it's out tommorow. Ruined my day.
Shit better be worth it.


No, it's today. Not sure where you live though, but unless it isn't November 24th somehow then you should have it.

Installing now..."approx 20 mins left". OLEDOIT, GOODBYE WORLD.

if anyone bought a ps3 for only this game i think they will be disappointed.

and right now the online is messed up right now. apparently since there are so many people on the server it makes everything take longer to load, mainly my home. takes like 1-2 minutes to load even after install. makes me feel like i'm playing modnation racers.

for those of you that have forza 3 and gt5, whats your preferance? Im considering buying it but im just not sure if i liked the handling on the gt5 350z contest thing that was out a while ago...altho that could just be the outdated ps3 controller.

i have both. i feel like gt5 got some shit MAJORLY wrong, which would make me chose forza 3 over this game.

you can't change car colors unless you own that color "chip" which means you have to own a car that had that color.
no custom paint jobs like the vinyl editor
not very much in terms of body parts you can change around, and standard cars you can't even change the RIMS smh
all the cars sound like rice rockets with the best exhaust on.
the sound effects are horrible, thud thud thud

i do like the license tests and special events. i haven't played online yet since the servers are still pretty messed up from launch but the GT Home setup is pretty cool since you can look at what your friends are doing and have your own little chill spot

86/100 on Metacritic is not bad at all. Only reason it even scored that low was because people were expecting the Detox of video games.


it's because reviewers revieved it after one or two days playing the game, smh

Dom, I feel like you're getting away from the point of GT5. It's a driving SIM. Though I agree the not being able to change rims is lame, but complaining about lack of body kits? Cmon now.

Sound effects sound fine IMO, a little bit better than FM3. Physics are on point, which is the biggest selling factor for me.

My biggest complaints are as follows:
Shadow modelling while IN COCKPIT is fucking horrible.
No smoke/tire trails/dust/etc etc etc in rear view mirror, probably done for framerate though.
Weather and "clouds" around cars (dust, and snow) look like complete shit.

Damage looks like shit and is completely unrealistic on "standard" cars, though I've heard simulation damage starts at level 20. My assumption is that this applies solely to the premium cars. Mind you, the damage of the standard cars is about on par with FM3 (essentially just deformed car models).

What it does right:
Lighting. Fucking. Awesome.
Physics are the best I've felt so far in any console sim.

Overall, I feel it's a fairly well put together package, although lacking some polish. I'm sure they'll fix alot of what I'm complaining about in patches. Shit, it took them 2 days to "fix" the lag in game caused by the insane traffic.
