Yeah, I just figured: when something doesn't need a description, why not just make one up?

An amazing description.

T'is a shame that it's better than the actual game though. My biggest game disappointment of the year.

damn! I paid £30 for this only last week from Zavvi :-(

Cracking movie, Eastwood at his finest.

£25 is waaaaay overpriced though, even for a collector's edition.

Couldn't disagree more,well i probably could but for the purpose of this argument I will differ.

Menu structure is poor and a little slow, but she's got it where it counts and that's driving physics.
Don't forget this is "The real driving simulator" not Mario cart

My game of the generation. I have loads of new games thanks to the deals but I still play this more than anything. The collectors is really nice for fans of racing, motorsports and cars in general.

I say disappointment because I bought my PS3 for this game and had been looking forward to it for years but when I actually got to play it on release day it was just not as good as I expected.

Car handling is off, customisation and upgrading isn't great, the damage simulation is terrible and what is going on with the shadows in the game? I believe they've tweaked the damage simulation in the patches which have come out since release but I'm yet to download the latest.

I do like the detail they've gone to on the premium cars, they look amazing.

I'm fully of the opinion that the Forza series has surpassed the Gran Turismo series now. Which is a shame because I've been playing GT since the original and had high hopes for GT5.

Code isn't working for me

Not the greatest video game but it is the greatest driving game this console generation.

Over 1 year since its release and I still play it all the time. Was racing online last night for over 4 hours. Awesome intense racing it was to.:{.

I brought Forza 4 on release day but didn't get same feeling, completed it & traded it in after a couple of weeks.

Alot of people who say menu structure is poor and slow have not played the other games like Shift 2 and Forza 4. After playing those two games I have a new found appreciation of GT5's design and game.
Forza 4 buries its menus in layers and layers with little thought to organisation and where stuff should be paired. You have to go back to the top far too often sometimes it feels like I am going 6-8 layers into something, GT in comparison doesnt have much in the way of layers, its GT Life to something and thats it. So even with load times its faster and simpler getting A to B. Forza also uses animations in between menus and these are essentially like GT load times in some cases. GT also uses fast shortcuts which really help alot.

Lets not mention the other countless flaws Forza has like the invisible hand guiding your car despite all driving aids off(GT better balances aids,not a case of too much too heavy), only 270 degrees of steering wheel support(and not properly at that, GT does 1080 and works really well with steering wheels). AI that is ram happy compared to even Shift 2. Too few courses. Many courses are also not recreated well. Compare the Nurburgring on GT5 vs real life compared to Forza 4 and Shift 2. Notice how tracks are almost fully flat in Forza and Shift 2.

Is this not like a brilliant deal? D:

i got for £26 a month ago, and yes gran tourism is Okish not great ( 5 years in the making), but the apex book is worth £20 alone imo.

The damage model is level based, virtually none in the early levels to high at 25 and above.
Don't agree with the handling issues, the handling is outstanding, and with a wheel, even better!
As the poster above has said, it's the only game that I've played every week since release, and since the 2.0 update, every day.

I think I'll hang on for a cheaper deal for the standard edition.

Burnout 3 still holds the crown for driving games for me!

Actually its not level based. It just takes far too long compared to Forza or Shift to show damage or you need to hit something very hard. Its fully real-time and dynamic unlike other the games so it gives funny or really good results. In arcade and practice you now have the option to set your damage including mechanical damage etc.

Split Second is the one for me but have some heat for this deal

Glad to hear there are still fellow members in the I Will Name My First-Born Burnout 3 club.

Code has expired.

This deal is still available besides the code - so why has it been expired?

Deal still available, Code is is not. Please ammend Mods, still a great price!

Great game and great price. Got mine a few weeks ago when it was £30.
