GRAN TURISMO PSP Eurogamer Review -- 7/10 (FALL from grace for GT)?!

Forums - Sony Discussion - GRAN TURISMO PSP Eurogamer Review -- 7/10 (FALL from grace for GT)?!

Reading between the lines it seems the cars, driving, etc. is all fine its the lack of a career or guiding gameplay device that's the issue.

I wonder why they left it out? Can't have been space, surely? Did PD think that on handheld people would just want to chose a car a track and drive in short bursts? I can't think of any reason not to have it given what is included with the game - it can't be for a technical reason, reading both reviews it seems for the most part they did a good job getting the title on PSP technically.

Mind you, I find the idea of a driving game on a handheld rather perplexing anyway, so what do I know...



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Ive learned some stuff here

no online
no career
only 4 cars on the track

hmmmm


And I have also learned that  many people are expecting it to outsell Forza 3....

Really? Have any examples....


I expect that... but I'm not "Many people" now am I... But I'm not taking VGC numbers. I'm taking Polyphony Digitals numbers... After all... there is almost 1 million difference between Shipped + DL'ed and VGC numbers for prologue.

I'm just really perplexed by these "claims" that LOTS of a said fanbase said point A, or whatever. Funny, all these "examples" never seem to be shown either.

Well now, it aint THAT bad after all huh......

please these guys liked LAIR too

I am not sure why you would discount them so quickly.  They are one of the better sites around for unbiased videogame information.   

And if we are going to be completely truthful, here is some of their Lair review that you think they liked so much:

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2007/09/game-review-lair-playstation-3.ars

"Lair tries to show off both the graphical power of the PS3 and the abilities of the Sixaxis, and is a miserable failure in both endeavors."

Verdict: Skip
System: PlayStation 3
Price: $59.99
Rating: Teen
Developer: Factor 5
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Other recent reviews:  



Thanks for the input, Jeff.

 

 

how can you give it a 9... no online and no career... makes no sense

this again shows why 9 has become the new 7.

The amount of fun, content and replayability?



still pretty good for a handheld game. if i get a psp il deffo be picking up gtpsp.

it may not have a fully fledged career mode but will still be fun to play.

You are embarrassing yourself, stop trying so hard buddy.

Yamauchi said from the start that the game would be "pick up and play" so career mode would not be present. That has backfired MAJORLY but it remains to be seen what those people outside of gaming forums think of not having career mode. So far GTPlanet, Gaf and this website are all against the game not having career mode so it is a huge fuck up.

I would be willing to bet my degree that this game only re-started development beginning of this year.



 

btw what did IGN mean by graphics not he best on the system, what other handheld racing games look better?

serious question
