Racing fans start your engines for the most anticipated racing game on the PS3. Gran Turismo 5 is the biggest Gran Turismo to date with 26 different race locations, 71 different tracks and over 1000 cars based on real car manufactures ranging from Chevy and Honda to more exotic cars like Lamborghini. One of the things that make the Gran Turismo series so popular is how realistic everything in the game is. Cars handle just like their real counterparts do on the road, engines even sound like the real thing, tracks and race circuits are modeled after real life circuits, and as in past games you can still upgrade your car with parts for maximum performance.
Gran Turismo 5 is more of a car racing simulator as opposed to an arcade style racing game like Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. The cars in the game are designed to handle just like they would in real life. Want to race against a friend or show off your driving skills online, there is that option too. If you love cars, if you love racing, and if you love racing simulators then you will definitely want to check out Gran Turismo 5.
What Parents Need to Know
Aside from a car running off the track or into another care, there is not any violence in this game.
There is not any bad language in this game.
There are some mild suggestive lyrics in some of the music.
There is not any spiritual content in this game.
With the exception of some mild suggestive lyrics, Gran Turismo 5 is a great racing game for fans of realistic simulated racing. I do not know of any racing game that provides as many tracks, cars and options as does Gran Turismo 5. Personally, I am more a fan of arcade style racing games like the new Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, but when it comes to realistic racing, Gran Turismo 5 is my first choice.
