Remember the pre-views? Best ever graphics. Most realistic racing EVER. It was all hype and no delivery. The handling is so bad it is practically impossible to race even with the controller. Your experience may vary to mine if you have a wheel.
It is also very obvious that they were showing PC graphics for the game and not console graphics. The very first track, I recognized immediately from playing GT5 extensively. To compare the two is a joke.
This game is a very poor man's Gran Turismo 5. The controls feel quite rigid, the car modification settings are stripped down and ripped right out of GT5 but affect the driving significantly less. It has some of the same courses and vehicles as Turismo but the look and feel of these vehicles and courses pale in comparison to Tursimo. Now I recognize that it's not fair to compare a game with a huge budget and epic development period like Turismo to smaller titles like SU2 but it sticks out blatantly. If you're going to rip another game off at least do it right. Don't waste your money or Q space on this game, you're much better off with Turismo as a driving simulator or split/second and hot pursuit for an arcade racer. This game attempts to be both and falls short all around.
