Gran Turismo Sport disappointing

I bought Gran Turismo Sport today after a loooong wait. I had very big expectations since its been a long time since the last version. I'm very disappointed about the lack of cars in the game to choose. The have been 1000+ in the other versions and what is it now? 140!!! What did you do for all these years? Now it's back to PS3 again so I at least get to play some real Gran Turismo because this is just not for me anymore and I will go and change the game to something else tomorrow. 

 

If you think about buying GT Sport. Save the money or buy something else. This isn't what it used to be. Very nice scenes etc but they took all the fun out of it.

Stay away from 7, just get 6. 7 is lootbox tastic, and gamers have a duty to stand up to that sort of bs.

Thats exactly what I did. It came with a download code for forza horizons 3 (its ok, plays a bit like the old burnout in a lot of ways). Also bought a couple of second hand games, forza 5 and forza 6. Avoided forza 7 as the lootbox microtransaction ***** is ridiculous. Best way to show developers they are on the wrong path? Dont buy into it. Funny thing though, Forza 5 feels a lot like gts albeit with a lot more cars. Joking aside though (if I am joking), I am really enjoying the Forza series, I hadn't played any since the 360 was in my gaming setup and thats a long time ago. The thing that always put me off getting an xbone was the fact the wheel wouldnt work with it and driving games are a bit crap without a wheel. But with the 'Drivehub' now available all is well in the world and forza plays perfect with the tm300 wheel.

I was surprised when I saw the forza livery editor, it looks like its going to be easy to adapt to as thats like gts as well. 

I haven't given up on gts, I am hoping the single player update lands soon to give it more depth for me. As it stands its gts for racing friends, forza for solo (as there is no way I am paying for xboxlive gold).

driving cars I have driven over the years is a big kick, something I used to like gran turismo for, but forza is delivering them in spades, mark one escort, capri, mx5 (admittedly gts has one of those), mark 2 mr2, nissan fairlady 300zx, the list goes on. Plus forza (5 and six) have got the top gear test track which is fun on its own. As I write this I realise just how much gts isnt Gt anymore as all these things were what made Gran Turismo my racer of choice back in previous titles from pd.  Also, forza has rain. Woohoo, it doesnt seem like much but the first time I hit a rain race it actually surprised me after being on gts so much of late and having none.

Forza is far from perfect, but is to my mind a lot more like Gran turismo of old than gran turismo sport is at this moment (who knows what the future will bring as pd are obviously trying to win old school gt players back with their single player content coming this month).

 

one thing I dont like with Forza (cant remember which, 6 i think) is the hint of what was to come in forza 7 with a rudimentary 3 perk option where you have something akin to loot boxes. Pay x amount of tokens and get random short term and one use upgrades. 5 percent horsepower increase on certain track, 5 percent more grip for one race etc. I resolved not to bother using them, instead spending any in game money/tokens on vehicles instead of the gambling aspect and stupid perks.

 

one last note, get ready to say ***** to yourself as you first power up the controller. I wasnt expecting what you get when you open the battery bay. Also, no bluetooth on xbox, its like its stuck in another era, headsets MUST be plugged into the controller. Not can, must!.

You might want to do some research this time around, or you may be disappointed yet again.

Go for Forza 6, F7 has lootboxes for things which should be basic functions.

Since writing here...   I have now been playing this game for a number of weeks..

 

I knew that the game would be different and have been following fairly closely since hearing of it....   was basically going to be my reason for buying the PS4.   Driving games are normally what I only really play..   True to their promise, we have had extra cars come into the game and more to follow.

 

There is not much that I don't like about the game... it's giving me entertainment....  it's a game after all..   I know that some people may take it more seriously than me and have expected more from PD.  I cannot comment for those people,,,   I'm finding it fun.... so I'm happy with my purchase.

 

 

I also have copies of DiRT Rally and DiRT 4.    The gameplay is outstanding if you like Rally games... the steering control with a wheel is utterly brilliant and so much fun.  DiRT 4 is totally worth a purchase.   You will most certainly get a smile on your face.

I will ask to try it first in the store. We have been talking about getting the Xbox anyway because of its 4K Blueray.

Hahaha... I don't now how to upload pics here. I'm very new to this. I had problems just to start this thread here. I will try to upload a pic but I think I will need few days to convince my husband that we really need the Xbox right now. We also need to get a new TV since this one is about 10 years and I want a bigger one. We have a Samsung 55 inch LED and I want a LG 65 inch Oled. With that said you might understand that it maybe take a few days since it will cost little bit more than GT Sports did. I think it can be some discussions here at home but I usually get what I want. Hahaha...

I'm really surprised they took career mode out of this GT sport and can't buy mod's with all this money I have only cars I can buy. And really enjoy the VR mode shame not more to it. I really hope their will be a add pack or update to change this.But as it stands I love it and will still be playing IMG_2911.JPGIMG_2915.JPGit and building up my millions and millions of cash in case of any extra  features.

It seems both GT Sport and Project Cars 2 are really poor games according to reviews. How can game manufacturers get it so wrong? At least F1 2017 gets good reviews, probably saving the genre for this year?

i loved the first project cars once most of its glitches and issues were fixed (though a lot remained). So much so that when pcars 2 came out I bought it immediately. Big mistake. Doesnt drive well (to me). Graphics seem sub pcars one quality, it 'feels' older than the first game somehow. There is a lot more to it with a lot more racing genres built in, racing around long gone race circuits in an open wheeled car stirling moss cut his teeth on is great, but its nowhere near as nice to drive as pcars one (or gts/forza for that matter). Its a different animal to pcars 1 though despite being its successor. It literally just got the version 3.x patch today, so maybe its better than it was now, but anyone expecting it to look better than gts is in for a nasty shock, it definitely wasnt on the v2.x patch. Watching fencing draw itself in as you drove along is not good, and the rear view mirror is as bad as pcars one too. All in all, pcars 2 was a huge disappointment to me and despite every so often trying it again, Its always a short lived attempt as I just cant settle into it.

I went out and bought Project Cars 2 today. I'm installing it just now and it will take 120 minutes! Is the bluraydisc empty??? Hahaha...

 

We talked about getting the Xbox one s but they release the Xbox X next week so we will wait for that. 

 

When it comes to Gran Turismo I've had it now. I was in the gamestore today and they give me 80% back from what I paid. So... good luck with this game everybody and I really hope there will be a proper Gran Turismo in the future! Tonight I'm going to play GT6 on my PS3. Have FUN!!!

A diehard fan of Gran Turismo is quitting the game.

GT is the only reason I have a PlayStation.

When I started the first game in 1997 till the 4 edition was amazing.

The hours that I played it to get everything in gold was amazing.

Number 5 and 6 are big updates of number 4, but big fun online.

But…

Gran Turismo Sport is not that great.

In the beginning I though yes finally there’s a decent next generation game of GT.

But, …

Of all my friends there is one more that’s also playing GTS.

(not everybody is standing in my list)

All the others are playing Project cars 2 or Iracing.

The Real Driving simulator is on this moment far away of realistic.

One of my friends have shown me, Iracing! Wow what a simulator.

It’s realistic but the graphics are not that great, what makes the only different whit GTS for the moment.

 

The reasons:

GTS is not that realistic anymore.

Online you are better driving with TC on 2 or 3 then without TC off.

When other players bump you, then it is not fair what’s happening with your stats.

After the latest updates, the offline game is sucks.

My son of 7 is playing CARS 3 and even there is it for the moment more difficult than GTS.

The online check for decals and showing cars is a shame.

There are a lot of great racing modifications but only those with a lot of friends are going popular by showing them in front when opening the page.

Still no rain or weather change.

A lot of the winning cars are the same…

No damage visible on the cars?

And cut the crap because the makers of the cars don’t want this.

And what about those visions????

Stop doing that.

If we want to go to space well make a star wars game???

 

I just give my opinion so maybe the creators of GTS will realize that’s time to change or quit.

At least, I want to thanks the makers for the pleasant years with the GT on ps 1,2 and 3.

If you see me online it will be my son.

He at least is enjoying GTS

With Kind regards Viperfreak24

At first shot, I actually found GT6 a bit underwhelming. Most of the cars were facsimiles from previous games and the career seemed limited. Looking back, I got loads out of it and loved it. I feel GT sport is the same. I bought it knowing that it was limited in tracks and cars but as a simulator, it's great. 

 

The real secret to making it great is that I run it with a G29 wheel and a VR headset. The experience is amazing.

OK,

It will grow. that’s for sure. And maybe after the next update it will be a great game again.

But I miss the stress to get it in gold because you must drive perfect, offline after the latest update it’s too easy.

For me is it no real driving…

Online is the biggest crap I ever have seen.

If you start in front the bump you all the way, if start at the end the same *****.

During my online racing, 2 races where I even didn’t finish in the top 5 but the complete race was amazing battle with a German and a UK- thanks for that.

At the end we all get bumped by another and the fun was gone.

Not everyone is doing that, but it still happens. Even with D and higher.

For the moment  I’m D and S and Always if you getting faster and better there is a noob that’s driving like a horse on drugs with the same stats. But normally I must be no more D, but every race the same. If others see you driving and knowing that you are better, they block you like hell.

With damage on it will be very different …

Bad connection, no race.

What is happened with the force feedback of my steering wheel?

Why if they make great games and babies are crying because it’s too difficult they change the game?

Same problem with Tomb Raider, the first games, oh my god hours to find a button and now,….

PS: The VR makes me sick after 5min.
