  • Conclusion: Their appearance in motion, well, it’s hard to tell the difference at this stage between GT 3 and GT 4: Prologue when the game is in motion except for one huge exception. The sensation of speed has finally been improved. Now if you take a Skyline up to 250+km/hr it feels like it, as opposed to merrily trundling along.

Gran Turismo 4 PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: So, once again we’re confronted with the so-called quintessential PlayStation racer. You may sense a distain in our tone, a certain edginess even. Well put yourselves in our reviewing shoes for just one moment. Imagine standing at the very top of a cliff and before you are a queue of people, a million souls in total.

  • Excerpt: ) is Polyphony Digital’s long-awaited sequel to a franchise that defines video game racing. In its fourth incarnation, it’s obvious that the makers created a much more polished game overall from the graphics and realism to the user interface on top of an expanded list of features. However, it’s that very polish that exposes the shortcomings and ultimately leads us to question the game’s claim that it is “The Real Driving Simulator.

  • Summary: Overall, Gran Turismo 4 offers exactly what players have come to expect from the series: a highly-tuned precision driving simulator that’s demanding and deep. The gameplay is standard GT with hundreds of vehicles, many driving types and the extensive GT mode that offers the typically deep RPG-like racing experience. The sheer number of cars, vehicles and courses can be overwhelming, so its best to take this on in small chunks.

Gran Turismo 4 – Review

18 July 2005
  • Excerpt: I always enjoy it when I'm able to learn something about myself when playing a game. It can be something as simple as, "Gee, throwing people through windows sure is fun," or as complex as "in a post-Cold War world, I'm more than a little uncomfortable playing a game where I shoot Russian soldiers." If Gran Turismo 4 taught me one thing, it's that I'd be quite a good driver if it wasn't for all those corners.

  • Conclusion: Though GT4 is big and beautiful in almost every way, from car list to track list to song list, its fun factor is lacking, unless you're a bona fide car-obsessed grease monkey.
  • Pros: Driving through an empty Times Square calls to mind the opening scene in Cameron Crowe's
  • Cons: Arcade Mode doesn't pair up like-engined cars, so you'll often run into pretty intense mismatches. Fall behind, and it's game over, so you're left to suffer through a Sunday drive.

  • Excerpt: I still remember the day. Soon after I bought my Playstation 2, I saw the previews for one of my racing titles of all time. Yes, it was Gran Turismo 3: A-spec and it was one of the biggest releases for a racing game at the time. I watched every movie and saw every picture I could find until the game hit the shelves, as soon as it did I had it.

Realistic racing experience for the entire family.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game provides players with more cars, more race courses, and more high-speed fun than earlier versions, though gameplay is only slightly different from its predecessor. While the game is a good alternative to Need for Speed Underground games, parents may be concerned about advertising in the game, and the speeds at which cars travel around the racetracks.
