GT Sport is the return of Polyphony Digital’s acclaimed racing simulation series, for the first time available on Sony’s PlayStation 4. Chris recently played the game at EGX 2017 and was mightily impressed with the incredibly detailed cars.
That’s because of the huge level of detail that’s gone into every car. In previous games, only a selection of cars was what they called Premium with the others being regular. Each and every car in Gran Turismo Sport are Premium. What this means is the level of detail that’s gone into each car have essentially made them futureproof, ready to be placed right into any future titles. The official line is that only the manufacturers CAD data is more precise than those in Gran Turismo Sport.
It shows as well. Last year I had my reservations with certain visual elements, noticing some jagged edges here and there, as well as a few other minor issues. I was able to do six races during my time at EGX and I have zero complaints. Frankly, Gran Turismo Sport has the best looking cars in gaming today. I had nothing but praise for Project Cars 2 and I stand by what I said, though the level of detail found in GT Sport is astounding.
He also had praise for the game’s handling, which he called an improvement over last year’s build.
While I was racing on simulation, I went skidding around like a madman as I encountered the same issue I did with Project Cars 2. That issue is my driving. Once I adapted the settings to my needs I was right back into the Gran Turismo I’ve always known and loved. Everything felt fantastic with cars reacting realistically to your racing style but muted just enough for those who need the help.
I found myself enjoying the time I spent with a game. It was actually a pleasant surprise as I was dreading a lack of arcade options in a game that was known for its accessibility. Coming out exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in just over two weeks, on October the 18th, it’s a long awaited outing for a legend of the racing genre.
