GT5 Visual Guide

By Updated on

For some of you considering whether to purchase Gran Turismo 5 or not, then you would have certainly been put off by some of the negative reviews saying it seems unfinished. However, I am sure that having a visual guide will help you decide if GT5 should be in your collection?

Reading the reviews is fine to get an idea of how good a game is, but come on – nothing beats seeing the true performances of a game Thankfully Kotaku thinks the same as us, and has provided a number of videos for you to study. So lets take a look.

The first video we have provided for you below is called ‘GT5 TGS 2010 Visual Effects’. Once you start playing the video you will know that it looks more closely at the dynamic weather system built into the game. Not certain if this is real life game play graphics though.

The next is ‘Karting Racing Video’, which has the caption “Mario Kart, this ain’t.” If you ever want to see how F1 drivers start their career, then this is it. This mode I like the idea of, as you get a true sense of speed being closer to the ground.

There has been a lot of talk about the damage on GT5, the ‘Gran Turismo 5 advanced damage’ video aims to show you just how great this feature is. This one has no sound, but it is just a visual aid. Read our recent post looking at how damage works.

The final video that we have for you below is a ‘Snow Race’, which you can see will not take long before you become snow-blind. I even struggle driving at 20mph in the snow, let alone up to 100mph.

There are more videos for you to see over at Kotaku. I know that seeing these videos makes me want to go and buy the game, but I have been told not to, as Christmas is coming up – people need to get me something.
