Not necessarily that (they did indicate they are level 17), so much as it indicates GT5 (and I'll bring Forza 3/any sim racing game into the mix) should not have reviews come out the day the game releases.  It is one of those games that may continue getting better or providing content that you realize wasn't previously there.



Money can't buy happiness. Just video games, which make me happy.

Yamauchi made a huge mistake thinking reviewers would put a lot of time in Gt5 before reviewing it. We have seen many examples lately where reviewers didn't take the time to learn a game they reviewed.

 Yet we knew GT5 had a damage model so why did they believe this feature was removed at the last minute.



I really don't like where the game industry has been heading lately.  I mean, think about it, games have been getting less and less development time.  Games have been getting shorter and shorter.  Now reviewers arn't even reviewing games anymore, they just play 5 minutes of the game and call it a day.



So the best racing simulator this gen (their words) is only an 8.5?  The words in the review don't match the score at all.

I don't thing GT5 fans care about the review, they will buy the game no matter what, i'm not much of a racer fan but just enjoy the game, isn't that's all that is important?

You could also have the greatest railroad simulator and that isnt entitled to any high scores......



N64 is the ONLY console of the fifth generation!!!

Yea, but I think his problem is that Forza is also mostly considered a racing simulator, and that received what, 94 metacritic?  Obviously that one came out a ways back, and things have changed, but still, looking at these ratings, one would assume Forza 3 is better, yet the review says otherwise.

Gamespot 8/10

GamingXP 9/10

Watch Gamespot video review the first few words is already "bigest and best GT yet"....wats up with that same as IGN "best racing simulator in the market" yet scores dont reflect much.....

Why isn't it? If it's the best at what it does, why shouldn't it get high scores?

If a game is in a "Railroad Simulator" genre, and it is infact the greatest Railroad Simulator ever... Why shouldn't it get perfect, or near-perfect scores?
