Horrible

Looks Pretty - Awful AI and Load Times

Pretty. That's the only redeeming this I can say about this game. It has a nice menu, swanky music, it looks like a flagship game.

Unfortunately this game is anything but. This title feels more like a tech demo you would show suits and point out that it has "AI" and a nice looking interface. Let's not forget over 1,000 cars! Because quantity is greater than quality, right?

Doing GT mode, you'll start off doing B-Spec license qualifying courses. There are 10 courses you have to do, each one takes about 20 seconds to do. However, it takes longer to load up the courses than to do them. This is a large problem with GT5, the loading. You load menus to load more menus.

The game really doesn't impress. We are presented with a nice package only to find inside we have significant loading, futile license courses, atrocious AI. Game play feels like GT Prologue, aka, it feels more like an arcade racer. Need for Speed or what have you.

Compared to something like Forza, GT5 is really lackluster and it's a real shame.

Oh well, Forza 4, 2011.

Same Game - Some marginal improvements

I find the car handling improved over earlier versions, and power sliding is fun. Graphics and gameplay slightly better.

Have not finished the game yet - but disappointed that we're still racing the same tired old tracks. Come on - I mean they had 5 years to develop some new ones!

Would like to see all F1 Grand Prix tracks with online racing series - now that would be fun!
