This would probably beat GT. Gran Turismo has good graphics and hundreds of cars, but it eventually gets boring for lack of a career mode.
Its worth noting that the ONLINE now works perfect and there are always at least a few hundred players online to race against. 8.0-8.5 game.
Has anyone else realized that GS is pretty bias when it comes to sony cuz it seems like their pretty pulled toward Microsoft
He said probably and he is right about that but you can't overlook all the flaws. The physics in the game are extremely different from the past games which I own. This game will let let flip upside down without 'crashing' you. This is probably because the game makes the vehicles seem a lot lighter compared too the other games like the when you're driving a big rig, you can actually move around easily and fast when you're in the air. The are A LOT of other things I can complain about especially how frustrating the game can be. BUT one of the good things that the game does is make a good racing envirenment with cars exploding and crashing right in front of you. you'll know what I'm typing about when you play the game.
8.5 minimum 9.2 max but 7.5 come on even though the demo was one car and one track after i played it (like a million times before i got the full game) i knew the full game would be worth it and i was right
i love this game and my rate it 9.5 !!!!!!! this and lbp and assassins creed are really good looking gamesss :D well i would like to try GT tooo!!!
This review is too rush despite being after the game released. :( IGN waited for its online to fix which can be fixed easily and then reviewed it. GS is damn bias when it comes to SONY system. :(
LOL at at the way he says vehicle - "ve-hicle" :P Kevin VanOrd is a cool reviewer though, but i do think the game should have got a 9.0, its super fun, looks amazing & i haven't had a problems with online multiplayer :)
its online can be fixed with an update. he makes it sound like a 9.0 and it ends up with a 7.5? i dont know why they rate psp games low even though their way better then DS games.
"... and get ROWDY!" hahaha what a tool. "Ve-hicles"... I bet this guy over-pronounces "clo-thes" too...
Definitley getting this game, it looks very good especially for a PSP game. Like many other people i really wanted this game to come out on the PS3. Too bad this game is under rated on gamespot :( Just as well it shows the ratings from the users and other websites :)
That's harsh, Kevin. Good review, but just harsh. Even on Metacritic/Gamerankings, you can clearly see this is at least a 8.5 game. Oh well...
Needs a better score. I don't know whats with Gamespot, but they ALWAYS seem to have connection problems. I have connected 100% of the time. Like in Fat Princess, I have hardly had any problems with that game either, and my PS3 has a bad connection. I love this game. The PSP hardly gets any good reviews for games. I say; 8.3 or higher.
First off Music to each their own secondly maybe the server just got overloaded because of all the hype of the game and many people just went directly to online gaming, and come on 7.5 thats just pathetic. it deserves at least 8.8-9.5 for a psp game. nuff said!
i think the next game should be set in iceland because the land scape there has so much to offer. anyone agree?
wow arctic edge and mgs peace walker = best psp graphics gamespot your a bit too harsh on some games inc. this game
BTW they fixed the online problem altready!! i havent had one problem and im playing online as im typing lol :D
bet they took off a full point for online being broken. It will be fixed and thus this review will be faulty from that point on.
Well, if they fix the online issues it should go up to an 8. And whether you like the soundtrack or not is personal preference so we might find it a positive point. I reckon this should have a got a 8 at the least.
@stufferz, GT has no career mode, it's just driving cars around. Personally I think this deserves a better score.
I think i'll get this over gran turismo.the previous 2 games were amazing and underrated. Cant wait to get my psp go and this!
Gamespot underates psp games on a regular basis. It's quite frustrating. The game media complains about the psp being "dead," and then when good games come out, they dismiss them as merely being okay. I suppose Sony advertising isn't as lucrative as say Microsoft or Nintendo.
