After reviewing some of the major publication reviews I was expecting a game that would deliver, but the car handling was so terrible I put it down near an hour after trying. I've put a lot of time in GT5 and this doesn't feel no where like a simulation racing many are calling. I then tried to use my Logitech G27 and thats where I returned the game to GF. As some of the reviewers here have noted, there are a lot of issues using a racing wheel.
What bothers me the most is how IGN, Joystiq and a few others gave this game the same rating GT5 has.

Quite honestly I am going to state that racing games have become overly traditional and just keep to the same mechanics. Only few games such as Split/Second and Motorstorm really change it. This is a really really bland racing game.
Story - 3 It is a racing game -_- what story do you want? Honestly I gave it a 3 because they try to place a basic story.
Gameplay - 6 The gameplay rather stiff and loose at the same time. This game is for race lovers because after awhile it just gets irritating. Also I read that you can't change camera view, yes you can. It simply does not make it better.
Graphics - 8 As most racers graphics are clean and polish and car damage looks great.
Sound - 7 Good car sounds but when I think of racers I think of awesome background music. That was not the case here. Although this is just a personal preference.
Overall - 6 There is nothing special or new here really. This is for the race lover not for the general community.
