Agree with half of your criticisms, disagree with the other half.

It's definitely not PS3 standard when it comes to graphics; that's a ridiculous understatement.
I don't think it's dull either, but that's more subjective. It's an austere game (and series in general), because it's a sim first, racing game second; it can be hard to get into but once you do it becomes strangely compelling.
The computer AI is indeed still crap though. Lifeless drones is a good description. The only fun thing about the AI in the entire series is when you get bored and start to try and break its rigidity by setting yourself weird challenges, like making the AI that's coded to be first in the pack finish last by holding it up, spinning it out, etc.
I'd also agree that GT in general doesn't create a good sense of speed. If you do say 40mph around a corner it feels like you're barely moving. In Sport it's a less extreme version of the lack of speed found in GT HD Concept.
