Gran Turismo 5 is the game every car enthusiast has been waiting for as the legendary real driving simulator finally rolls off the production line. The result of four years work by a team of hundreds, this is the game the PlayStation 3 was made for.
Every supercar is recreated in exacting detail. Damage modelling comes as standard in this game. NASCAR racing is just one of the many race types. The official WRC license ensures even greater variety. It goes without saying that the new game looks astonishing - far better even than Gran Turismo 5 Prologue - but as ever the beauty of Gran Turismo 5 is that it drives as realistically as it looks. And if you're lucky enough to own a 3D TV then you will get the whole experience in 3D - don't worry it's still a great game without it (the game runs in 2D or 3D). With over 1000 different cars modelled to a higher degree of accuracy than ever before this also features more manufacturers than any other game - including, for the first time ever, Lamborghini and Bugatti.
Other fan demands that have finally been met too, including fully realistic damage-modelling, a 16-player online mode, dynamic weather changes and night racing. Any more realistic than this and you'd be knocked out by the petrol fumes.
