Should have been titled GT 3of5 cause that's what we got

The Good
New cars, new tracks. Initial menus were speeded up and simplified. No used dealership. Physics are okay.

The Bad
It's like buying a new car and then having your mechanic take a look. And he tells you that you bought a 3 year old car with a cassette drive, no speedometer, poor tires and that to get it where you want it to be... well, lets not go there.

Shadows are still atrocious. Damage is majorly scaled back (not that it was good or anything). No course creator... was in GT5... not in GT6 as of June 2014. No testing... was in GT5... not in GT6 as of June 2014. No photo modes from GT5... most in GT6 are average. No monthly DLC unless you include updates. Online community features lacking. Videos are no longer streamed on demand. Now they're downloaded as part of updates whether you want them or not. Huge data drain.

No obvious progress beyond cars, tracks and the interface. And that interface is like a new car too, cause once you're under the hood, you realise it's the same as it's always been.

The Bottom Line
FAIL! Buy GT5. It's cheap and the glitches have been worked out. Still has promise but Polyphony Digital hasn't inspired a lot of confidence in me lately.

The most realistic all-around racer ever for the PlayStation 3!

The Good
I'm hyperventilating after winning a 5-lap race, I just couldn't stand it! Anyways, the graphics look realistic compared to the inferior PC racing games out there, and with the superior physics and car handling, it doesn't get any better than this! The game supports several force feedback racing wheels from Logitech and Thrust Master, which adds that nice little effect, and they mimic the events of driving a car, such as crashing into a wall or driving on gravel.

Gran Turismo 6 features a hundred more of the thousand cars and tracks, and it's a big improvement over the previous Gran Turismo 5, and that's the biggest selection I have ever seen in a racing game like this! Thinking about driving a Chevrolet Corvette C7 on the Daytona International Speedway? Well, the possibilities are endless!

The Bad
None so far!

The Bottom Line
If you are looking for an all-around racer for your PlayStation 3, I highly recommend Gran Turismo 6! Realistic Physics, Realistic Graphics, Realistic Car Engine Sounds, Over a Thousand Cars and Tracks, and Excellent Force Feedback give this game a spot on your shelf! Give it a try, and you'll see what I mean!
