The game is very simple to navigate, menus are self explanatory but the game also does a overt and hand-holdy job of telling you what each menu and option will do.
A majority of our time was spent playing Gran Turismo Sport on a 4K HDR enabled display on a PS4 Pro, and wow, GT Sport is one stunning looking driving game.
The challenges are quite interesting; given that GT Sport offers only a handful of real world circuits, most of the game’s locales are entirely fictional, and being able to learn them beforehand is a nice feature.
Gran Turismo Sport is a game that is both very good on the track and incredibly important for the future of the genre and the eSports fascination at large.
Graphically GT Sport is a visual delight on the PlayStation 4 which boasts exceptional car models, realistic effects and some lush backgrounds.
Even outside of the racing, the experience is excellent. You can restart a challenge or race nearly instantaneously, and given how challenging Campaign mode can be, you’ll be doing this a lot.
That said, there is plenty of satisfaction to gain from merely finishing races. Personal achievements aside, every race rewards you with in-game credits, mileage points--another in-game currency used to upgrade cars or purchase paint decals, wheel rims and the like to customize your car with--and experience points that raise your driver level.
The other thing that makes online racing different in GT Sport is that it’s largely schedule-driven. Every day there are three daily challenges introduced, but you can’t just hop in whenever you like.
With its excellent focus on online multiplayer supported with some innovative fair-play features and related social features, Gran Turismo Sport is a great choice for drivers focused on those aspects.
Over time it looks like GT Sport will look to expand on this premise, offering players tournaments to play in with a calendar of events already taking shape that will offer seasons for players to race in.
The game looks simply incredible, it must be said, and while it still hews towards the kind of clean and clinical accuracy of the last few games on PlayStation 3, it’s transformed by the power of PlayStation 4. That extra oomph allows it to pack in more detail, an overhauled lighting system that was built from the ground up to make the most of the new high dynamic range technology, while still boasting Polyphony’s typical attention to detail.
Visually, Gran Turismo Sport is stunning and truly showcases what the PS4 Pro can do.
GT Sport is one of the best-looking race games yet seen. Its car models are phenomenally detailed, and its highly convincing racing environments are crisp and beautifully rendered.
Having said that, the graphics in GTS are impressive. The car models on the outside and inside have an immense amount of detail. From the shine on the paint to the stitching on the wheels and other details of the dashboard and gauges, this is some of the most spectacular vehicle work yet.
Gran Turismo Sport is a superb racing game. It’s everything it should be. Faithful to its heritage, with gorgeous cars, superb tracks, time-of-day variations, exquisite handling, an ultra-serious online mode and a challenging, genuinely educational single-player component.
I really like the different sounds of the cars, and a car game creating that kind of interest after hours of playing is a feat
Gran Turismo Sport brings its best to the race with a long list of gorgeous cars and outstanding venues.
I look for noticeable variations in the handling of the vehicles included in driving games. I like to see differences that go beyond the cosmetic. GTS delivers this in a major way. It's challenging, but also very rewarding when you master the nuances of driving the cars in the game.
Gran Turismo Sport represents a sharp change in direction for a beloved brand – and only time will tell whether that move proves shrewd. The game sets a new standard for online simulation racing on consoles, and for that it must be praised, but in its efforts to educate it’s shed the series’ revered single player structure – and almost certainly a fair few fans along the way.
Ultimately, the real focus of Gran Turismo Sport is the new online Sport Mode, in which players participate in daily races in hopes of earning a chance to compete for various championships.
Sport takes its fidelity even further, though, with the best sound design in a game we have ever heard. Full surround gets plenty of support, and thanks to some innovative recording techniques, you’ll hear basically the exact same sounds in your living room as you would on the road in one of this monsters.
Gran Turismo Sport is worthy of the name and a great driving simulator
This championship is the main event in Sport, and it recently started its ‘pre-season’, allowing us to glimpse what will be a year-long circuit championship with players from all over the world competing for points and an actual trophy presented by the FIA at the end of it.
Gran Turismo Sport returns the Gran Turismo series to the Playstation 4, with fantastic graphics that push the boundaries for realistic driving simulation.
The delicate and skilled operation of a high performance vehicle projects Gran Turismo Sport’s utopian vision. Its factitious structure and inattentive principles remind the player that it operates in an unstable reality.
