Excellent

A healthy taste of great things to come

some are calling GT5 Prologue a glorified demo, or bare bones pacifier. That is unfair and a poor representation of this gem.

GT5 is relatively short in comparison to most any other game, however it is designed to keep loyal fans happy with a very good taste of more great things that are on the way to fully round out this chapter in the franchise.

GT5 gives you unparalleled graphics and physics on a next generation console that most would expect. 6 tracks with 2 variations each, and 60 unique and amazingly rendered cars are available to purchase. These will have to keep us all happy until the full version is completed for release sometime next year. So far after spending several hours glued to this (available by download as well as Blu Ray) I find GT5 to be an incredibly satisfying sports car enthusiast simulation worthy of owning if not for just the incredible eye candy, but also for what it promises to improve upon in content in the future.

Some minor issues are a little disappointing, such as limited tracks, few cars, but the most annoying is you cannot customize, or tune any vehicle yourself. There is however an option to quick tune certain cars in the A class, but that's pretty limiting.

A few minor gripes aside GT5 delivers a great experience that will admittedly leave you wanting much much more, but at the very least we have something to enjoy while we wait with baited breath for the meat of the game to become available to round out this extravagant appetizer...savor and enjoy the meal is coming, and at least you won't have to starve.
