Hello fellow gamers, after getting my game early and having a good 6 hour bash on it i can now share my first impressions with you guys.
Before that i want to state that im a Gran Turismo Fanboy so that kinda shows one person that wanted the game to be faultless was me.
Well lets start by saying ITS NOT ALL GOOD NEWS, personally im disappointed with PD and i know many others will too.
SO lets start with :
Not sure about these last 2.
I'll say this because i have yet to see any damage at all and any dynamic weather aswell so i cant comment on those but if sources are right they are very good.
Now to the things i already found wrong with the game already. (Remember its only MY opinion).
I will try to give reasons why i think these stand out as cons at least IMO.
The problem is not them being standard at all, the problem is that they look total *****.When i look at them it reminds me of cardboards drawings just because everything is on and you cant even see where the different parts cant merge together.
Im not trying to sound overdramatic here but they do look awful and when you guys have the game in your hands you will see why.
On top of that they can be race moded and you can add spoilers and that kind of stuff but you CANT change the stock rims so whats even the point of adding a spoilers or other piece of aerodynamic stuff when the aesthetics look all messed up.
Something else worth mentioning is that all standard cars are considered used and they all under ONE car lot which only shows 30 cars at one time and takes few minutes to refresh if i noticed right, so good luck finding the old gem you looking for.
Seriously B-Spec this time round is just retarded, well maybe not the mode but the drivers are.
Basicly its B-Spec from GT4 only difference is you have a bit more info to look at, you can choose the camera style you would like, you also gotta make/hire a driver call it what you will and then when it comes to racing you have 4 an ALMIGHTY 4 inputs :
Now that wouldnt be a problem until you try to figure out how to calm down your driver because he is very angry for some reason.
If you dont calm him down you can kiss your race goodbye because he will commit mistake after mistake and nothing you can do.
Remember the very first cup of GT4, well he cant even win the FIRST race of the same FIRST CUP.
On top of that polyphony increased laps for B-spec so expect to do an average of 4-6 laps per race at the beggining and increasing has you open further cups.
Now the biggest annoyance of all...WAIT FOR IT... They TOOK OUT the SPEED UP FUNCTION in B-Spec so you gotta sit and watch 6 laps of your moronic driver making mistakes.
I think thats it for now, i had more in my head but with all the writting i forgot.
IMO i think this game does not reach the standard it was suppose to.
If they spend less time you nascar schooling bull***** challenges and s making premium nascar cars and actually made some more premium cars which are at this present time considered standard and look like ***** maybe GT5 would have been the game everyone was expecting.
Of course thats not all 20 tracks with different variations.Where are the missing tracks that were in GT4?
Why spend about 6 months making the new Red Bull car they put into the game when more things needed some attention?
Why make Prologue when the actual GT5 Real Driving Simulator needed more time invested into it.
They wanted to make the PERFECT GAME but they forgot the basics in the midst of this.
DO NOT TOUCH WHAT ISNT BROKEN
Nearly 6 years and still feels like an incomplete game.
Oh well still not a bad game but its far from perfect.
Thanks for reading and sorry for my poor grammar.
P.S - Will be answering questions when i can about the game.

Thanks for your opinion oOPtKidOo.
I will wait until I have played the game before I agree or disagree with your post. (I bet others wont)

GT5 was NEVER going to reach the standards people were hoping for.
However, even before myself getting the game, I know it was a mistake them redoing all the previous cars in HD. Just give me 400 premiums and I'd be happy as larry.

Quick question oOPtKidOo, how's the AI?
From all the vids I've seen, they just don't seem to overtake! or even battle with each other for track position.
They should have let Codies (Grid/Dirt 2) do the AI by the look of it.
Are the races exiting/exhilarating/fun? in your opinion.
Still getting it myself, got it cheap so if I'm not impressed will trade it and actually make a few quid.
