15 years passed since the foundation of the GT series and now the 6th game has arrived - the latest high-profile exclusive for PS3. And even with a few problems here and there Polyphony Digital’s new creation is on many levels a head above everything else that is happening in the racing genre.
Gran Turismo still remains an intolerably conservative series. Some game elements seem hopelessly outdated these days: AI still hasn’t improved, it has a very simplistic scheme of damages and the interface puzzles every single time though it works much faster and is more responsive than the one in GT5. For example, looking for a car becomes frustrating because the search engine is as lame as ever, for the game with the world's largest car park this is an absolute blunder.
Despite all of these shortcomings, Gran Turismo 6 is actually a significant step forward compared to the previous installments. Developers haven’t just polished the cars and environment but also fixed a number of significant errors. Polyphony Digital managed to create one of the most beautiful dynamic change of weather and time of day ever seen in a racing game.
Rules of the game remain the same: career mode lets you getting involved in a variety of tournaments, buy new cars and gradually open the special missions where you’ll have to race in an unusual environment. The most famous special mission was announced right before the release of the game – riding a lunar module on the Moon.
Gran Turismo 6 is far from perfect. But if you like racing cars and can’t afford buying one in real life here’s a good chance to try out some of the finest cars ever created in a very well made virtual world of GT.
