I think a lot of the complaints about AI come from reviewers only going through the novice part of the main races. It took reviewers weeks to get through GT5 when it came out, but now it seems like they just got the game, went through a few races and modes and called it a day.

I also think a lot of the gripes about engine sounds is due to them leaving the sound setting to Living Room instead of bringing it up to small theatre or large theatre. Collisions noise suck no matter the sound setting though, so they're right about those.

Yeap... I guess so the beggining is a lot easy.

About the sound I have mixed experience... some few cars sounds crazy accurate (like the Galardo) but other sounds like a vaccum cleaner... so bad... I think PD needs to work in the sound for PS4 (seems like they have memory limitations in PS3).

I'm having a blast with the game so far, at least when my kids let me play it. I was pleasantly surprised when friend's ghost trails suddenly showed up in the license tests. It all feels very polished, everything is easily accessible, no more need to go to the tuning shop. Can't win a race, simply buy an engine upgrade in the race overview screen and restart the race without any loading screens in between.

The handling is great, FR cars feel a lot more dangerous now, watch that weight shift in alternating corners. The eco challenge on Nurburgring was a nice touch. A bit too easy though with manual gear shift. Next up driving on the moon.

The only problem so far is that I can't seem to get my own music working, maybe I'm doing something wrong. I selected personal bgm for races, selected a song on my ps3, hit the check mark, and it's still playing the game music during races? I want to drive the Nurb at sunset listening to Journey!

YES! I was driving the camaro SS to see if it finally felt how it should in real life (Drove an SS and RS in real life), and it definitely felt like the weight shift was making the rear kick out dangerously on sharp corners as opposed to Forza games and to an extent GT5, where the back might kick out but it felt manageable even at high speed.

Driving on the moon is hilariously ridiculous and fun, but probably not something I would go back to once I get gold in all the events.

The moon was a blast, I hope there will be some more moon challenges. The personal bgm was working for that race, surreal knocking down cones in low gravity while listening to Journey :) It's hard to keep that thing on the ground at 30 kph in low gravity.
I just started on the National A events, the new tracks look stunning. Matterhorn, Willow springs, very nice.

The AI is pretty tame in the standard races but can be a bastard in the mission events. Not that they haven't made life difficult in the standard races, it's a lot more lively then GT5.

The sound needs a lot of attention for GT7. I'm not that bothered with the engine sounds, I play in home theater mode anyway. But that the sound doesn't even change in the slightest when you drive into a tunnel breaks immersion. And how come there is sound on the moon :p



Just do the 20m credits error thing and voila.

so where are the gamespot gametrailers and famitsu GT6 reviews ?

Some reviewers play the game before give a score... less than one week of play is an unfair review.

Inside Racing Sims needs months to release the reviews... they didn't do that before reach at least 30k miles played.

7/10

I think maybe they didn't reace with AI set to max (10) because it is a hell of competition.

The AI is horrendous as are the sounds, and I am a big GT fan. It has nothing to do with reviewers only going through a few races. Career mode IN GT is really bad.

You can make a test for me... play a Arcade or any free race and set the AI to 10 (max)... I want to know your thoughts about the AI.

How does that help in career mode?? The mode that needs better ai the most??? Just another really poor decision from PD.....A-spec needed better Ai for the last 5 years, yet they improve it in...arcade mode, making carer mode generally bad. I love GT but it  really is frustrating seeing the really bad decisions being made at PD.

The AI in GT6 is not bad... it is good and harder... the Carrer Mode is supposed to be easy... that's didn't allow you to say the AI is terrible or bad.

What our friend are saying the reviewers just played the first Carrer races and wrote "terrible AI" when the AI in the game is way more complex than what they saw... so if you want to challenge the AI for real you need to set it to higuest possible... so you will have everything the AI in GT6 can delievy... you will be surprised.

Reviews should be surprised with the AI too if they invest more time with the game.

Career mode is NOT supposed to be that poor at racing....nor that easy................ Other games do ti fine, why can't GT? No damage is also ridiculous in a  sim, smnashing into a wall, bumper car your way to first undermines GT's sim nature. Game needs a lot of work.
