The UK wing of IGN got the chance to play a little Gran Turismo 5 at the GC last week and have written up their impressions … of the graphics, which is something we don’t really need hands-on time with to evaluate, now is it?
For a time limit-enforced romp on the track, players lined up behind the bucket seats in a mixture of awe and anxiety. After waiting our turn, we fired up the ponies under a TVR Tuscan Speed 6 ’00 and then chose the jet black paint job from the 21 options. We proceeded to pull donuts in the grass, rub up against our competitors and shift with reckless abandon.
Simply put, this is one of the best looking games out there. The cars sparkle in the sun, shadows dance across the pavement, and as soon as you touch the gravel, plumes of dust start getting kicked up.
That’s about all they wrote. Click on over if you don’t believe me. Tsk tsk.
