Added after 20 hours play
The game itself is fabulous, the tracks and cars look and handle with the same gravitas they always did, there is nothing nearly as good as GT on the market, there is a lot of depth and a LOT of real heart pounding adrenaline fueled last laps hanging on to a 0.3 second lead. There is an element of pay to play if you want to use it. £16 per 2M Credits that has many gamers up in arms. It is possible to get long into the game without buying credits but you get to a point where life is too short to spend hundreds of hours at 65 / 75 K a race grinding to get the car and tuning you need to progress. I just bought 4M credits extra that should be more than enough, I am however annoyed by this blatant greed on top of a game I paid £60 for and I hope it is outlawed soon.
March 23rd update 1.07 changed the in game credit system making £60K races worth £10K making it a massive grind unless the player buys in game credits with real money pretty much required. At this point I removed the game from my PS4, requested a refund as the terms and conditions of the game have been drastically changed - which Amazon have granted - I am returning the game for a full refund. This was done after the game was released to reviewers and is in my opinion dishonest and unethical and a dreadful way to treat people who paid £50 for a game - 25 years of good will flushed away. Grand Turismo is brilliant but buy a used PS3 and GT 5 for the best version - don't buy this it is an outright bait and switch scam.
There are a paltry number of events available, all shoehorned into the “cafe” menus that you are forced to do in order to progress. The entire single player campaign will only take you a few days (old Gran Turismo titles usually took many months), and the prize money on offer is insultingly low.
Some cars cost a fortune so you’ll have to grind the same race 100x to afford a single one, or… you know… buy credits with real money. 2m in-game credits cost £15 so the most expensive cars will cost you up to £150 of real money.
For a AAA game? Horrific.
Graphics are really nice tho.
Sound is amazing.
Overall experience is head scratching.
As with all previous games this one pits you as a wannabe race driver, you have to undertake license tests to up your game, to unlock a new range of races that will allow you to earn more credits for faster and better cars.
Unlike the previous versions of this game all the car models are highly detailed, how well they perform I can't tell you unless you let me drive the real world variants of these vehicles? Anyone got a spare MP4-12C they won't mind me thrashing about - no? Didn't think so, I can only imagine they have tried to do their best.
The thing is though, yes I have enjoyed this game and am pleased it got a PS4 release, although it does mean that I have no need for a PS5, so not sure how that does for Sony.. but it hasn't really done anything "New" it is literally just the same game from before (GT6) with some updated visuals and a new menu system - which is based off their same old menu system they introduced back in GT2.
The only difference in this game is that you have a cafe where you get missions to complete like obtain 3 cars from europe that are 4 wheel drive or something, and then the game will point you to the races that offer these as reward cars and you do them, you don't have to do them but its a great way to increase your garage with cars you are more than likley going to need to complete future races, without spending your credits. I didn't really know this so I bought a 1960s Mini cooper from the second hand market - coz I wanted one, only to be rewarded one the next mission, so now I have 2, because for some reason unlike in previous GT games you can no longer sell your old cars.. which is weird. its like they want to try to encourage you to spend your real money on the virtual currency instead? - Yeah thats a thing but thats not for this review.
It calls itself "The Real Driving Simulator" but it feels more arcade racing, it is very forgiving when you do make a mistake (even with the assists turned off) compared to other games like it - Assetto is one game that feels more "real" than this (PC version - don't know if that makes a difference at all).. in my own opinion at least - again without being able to actually drive the real cars I can't give an actual review on this, just know that if I do spin out and try to recover in Assetto I am screwed I might aswel retire the race, the gravel will make it almost impossible to get back into the race and I be driving for the experience of the track layout more than to actually try to win the race. GT7 I can just "power through" and still get a good enough position to win the race to obtain the reward.. this doesn't seem right to me but then the devs would surely know better right?
Although saying that the online mode does reward and encourage "good behaviour" which I do like, I like it when people take this seriously and try to better themselves by acting if this is a "real thing". But then again it is just a game and sometimes you do want to take a car sideways.. and I mean on its literal side round a corner then end up on all 4 wheels again somehow while playing online with some mates - I am sure this can be done but I won't be able to find out as we now come to the worse part of this game.
The box says: "Internet Required for most Functionality"
So today: March 17th, the game has had an update fair play, I like updates as it fixes problems its great we live in a world where we can have this. Instead of a broken game for the rest of our lives. But today they have maintence on the servers, I think no worries I am sure I be able to still play the "career mode" right? I mean all I am doing in this 110GB-ish of game on my hard drive is completing missions in these weird cafe menu's thing and driving races around tracks of the world in cars that I own.. but nope... all I can do is this weird rally music thingy majig - not even sure what that is, you have to do this before you can enter the career mode and I was like what the hell this isn't what I spent £50+ for but alright I see it through... or the races in the career mode.. Now I didn't even see what races, how it helps me progress because I thought this was a complete joke...I can't access the second hand store, I can't access the actual stores for new cars, I can't even access the "photo mode" I can't maintain my cars. I can't change anything... all I can do is race... and that seems like "arcade" to me... no.. thats not cool at all. I would at least expect the basic core functions of the game to still work offline. Photo mode? Really I can't even take a photo that gets stored on my console hard drive.. offline?
So the game is pretty much pointless offline. I am not sure how you would even get to the career mode offline in the first place, Legit you buy the game slap the discs in your console.. wait for the install to finish and the massive patches, then get to play the game to find out there is maintence and you can't actually play your game. I get a lot of the game is "online" with the likes of leaderboards and this whole social following thing, but when you buy a game, you expect to be able to play it when YOU want to play it, not when the devs say you can play it... and how much you can't play at the time.
The sad thing is, this is not unique to this game.. this is all games these days. It is an absolute joke that internet connection is required all the time even for single player gameplay, this was the whole unique selling point that Sony blasted Microsoft for during the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One that you won't need to authenticate your games online to be able to play them.. which is what gave Sony the edge over this generation. However it seems it was nothing more than marketing mumbo jumbo because here we have a game that will be nothing more than an expensive drinks coaster when the servers inevitibly go offline.
