GT5 is just flat out amazing. Prologue was indeed only a preview! The full version has more detailed graphics and environments that blows every other racing sim out of the water. With the many different game modes, it's like buying 6 games for the price of one. Weather and even daylight time elapsing with the sun (watch the sun set or rise while racing) adds a nice cool "wow" factor to the whole experience. 3D mode is available in the game for those who have the supporting equipment. I use 3D and a G27 race wheel for that extra step towards realism. Sound is phenominal (tested at 7.1ch PCM Surround) with exhaust tones that sound very much like the real car. After exploring the game and it's features, you'll begin to understand why it took Polyphony Digital and Kazumori to get the game to final production. This game is a definitely a 10 and will be the benchmark to beat for future racing sims.
Starts off slow in the beginning because you have a weak car. After you move through you career the game gets better as you go. Drifting is very realistic, takes a lot of practice. Graphics 10/10 Fun online drag racing, drifting from all over the world . Great game

It's a good game, but some graphical glitches will make you sick. Jagged shadows, flat scenery. No cockpit views for the majority of the cars. It's a good game, it just doesn't live up to what it could have been. I don't have 3d, so that's probably a bonus if you do. Not much of a step up from GT4 IMO.
