Gran Turismo PSP

Here’s an excerpt from Play’s review. Hit the link at the bottom to see the review in full…

It’s no real surprise that Sony decided to drop any kind of number from the title of Gran Turismo’s PSP debut and there are a number of good reasons for this. First up, there’s the classic reason of not wanting the buyer to think they’ve somehow missed out on several games in the last few years. Secondly, had it been ‘GT4’, it’d be aeons too late – had it been ‘GT5’, it’d be too early. And finally, using either name would be misleading as the all-new handheld-oriented approach makes this very much its own game rather than a mere port. So just Gran Turismo it is then and sure enough, Gran Turismo it is.

Structuring such a massive game for a handheld format was never going to be an easy task, but Polyphony proves itself capable from the word go. Rather than have some dizzying career map full of endurance races, licence tests and strict door policy challenges, GT PSP invites you to play at your own pace. The whole of the once-overwhelming career mode can now be found diced into its individual components, the main one being the single-player menu.

From here, you can arrange a race on any course of your choosing with whatever car you like – you even have control over all the settings that go along with it, so whether you want a quick lap around a basic circuit or a 20-lap Ferrari-only Nurburgring blowout (you’ve got your mains plug handy, right?), you’re free to do whatever you fancy rather than having to buy and upgrade cars just to fish for the odd Trophy.
