After watching that video review and reading the other reviews i can see there is nothing wrong with the game. Its like it is.. a portable GT game. Something you can pickup and play while your out and about. It serves its purpose and is exactly what Kaz said it would be. I think IGN and others were expecting a full blown GT PSP game with all the features of the GT series in a portable device which is what Kaz said its not.
Obviously some reviewers didnt research that before hand. Eitherway its still and will always be a must by for me. October cant come soon enough.
I have no interest in getting this game (Might be different if I had a PSP.. then I'd give it a little more thought... but since I have no means of playing it now I have no interest) Anyway... I'm wondering the same thing. I mean... when he complains about not being able to see if you own the car... that doesn't bother me... but what does sound like it would bother me... yet he really doesn't address all that much nor does he emphasize on it is when he talks about the dealers changing randomly daily... It didn't seem too big of a deal for him though.
The way I visioned this game ever since it was announced is just basically a portable farming system to get cars for your GT5 game... and that sounds exactly like it turned out to be.
Thats right. While it doesnt have a traditional career mode per say. It does have the ability to grind for cars. Each day only 4 manufacturers are opened for purchases, you complete races for money, challenges for money etc on your way to buying all the cars for your garage. While it doesnt have a Sunday GT Cup etc. The principles are all still there. Race/challenge for money to buy cars. Its a racing game all you do is race regardless of the career or not and earn money for it.
At the end of the review he did say that its he's personal opinion on it which you have to respect but when your writing a review for the public you cant always base the review on your own personal opinion. If you know what i mean.
I know what you mean... Like, you got to review the game for what it is. Even though its named Gran Turismo he should have reviewed it as a portable experience and not a "next big release for the series" type of thing... my review criteria would have these 3 things 1. Does it do what it sets out to do? 2. Compared to similiar releases on the same system... does it set itself apart? 3. Did I have fun?
The reason 1 is so important is because they game might not be my type of game. But if it does good for at what it tries to do... who am I to give it a lower score?
4. Can I recommend it to people who enjoy these types of games?
5. Can I recommend it to people who might not like these games to try out to see if they do enjoy them?
