After playing all of the titles in this series, I was amped up for Gran Turismo 5. It was well worth the wait. The only bad thing about the game is the install of game data. It takes a long time, but it really cuts down on the load times. There are a ton of things to do in this game. From the Nascar school, rally school, and kart racing, to TRUE 24 hour races. There is enough content here to keep you busy for a while. The gran turismo online community is very good as well, mostly mature, clean drivers. This is a must have for all auto enthusiasts and fans of the race genre alike. Please not, this is a simulator, if you are looking for something like need for speed or Burnout, keep looking, this title is not for you. If you are looking for a title that can be mentally draining during some of the events...pick it up, you will not regret it.

My son is 14 and plays a lot of games. He was disappointed when he unwrapped the game and saw it was a race game. Wanting to send it back for another. I told him keep it, and try it. He muttered and went off with it. He ended up loving it after trying it and told me it was also educational. I had to ask , How's that? He said it turned out to be lots of fun and INSURANCE HE FOUND OUT WAS VERY EXPENSIVE. I think depending on the car you race depends on the insurance cost. Not + about that but I know he pays insurance. ha ha I was disappointed he wasn't happy at first but very happy he loves the game now and started asking about insurance which gave me a chance to explain how wrecks in real life can effect insurance also. Ok kinda goofy just glad I had a chance to put my 2 cents in here. . The lower price is kinda why I got it. Not rich around here but really wanted to get him another games since he likes to play PS3 so much. My son is 14 and a half years old.

This is my second copy of the game, my first is stuck in my old PS3 that died and hasnt been fixed yet. I couldnt wait for them to mail it back to me so I bought another copy of GT5 and this one has all the downloadable content already on it and that alone is worth the price of the game. If you like racing games or driving sims you cant do better that Gran Turismo.

Nothing really new about this game. Race cars, buy cars, tune cars. And what a fun list of cars. Here you can pretend to be wealthy and buy any car you want. What I find fun is the used car lot. There are classics from the other turismos and some rare treats that you can add to your garage. RUF can also be found in the used section, only in the used section, and are rare. The used cars rotate as you play the game so check often and have a nice bank saved up for rare treats. Jeers for the price of the tuned Ford GT40 when prologue offered it at a fraction of the price. If you don't like simulators and enjoy getting chased by cops then go play the kids series NFS. There are plenty of races online and off with seasonal events as well. The rim selection was a little thin. This is a fun game.
