RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

What do these ratings mean?

ok so i have a few things to say about this game..... first off ive owned and played the CRAP out of every GT in the series. the wait was beyond ridiculous and as much as i love this game (and i am obsessed with it, i just bought a 750$ playseat evolution w logitech gt27 steering wheel just for this game) im still quite dissapointed with it. it has by far the greatest handling physics of any game ive ever played and well that really is the point, but the standard cars having gt4 graphics is pretty gay, and the graphics in general are beautiful but they missed some key details..... did no one else notice the HUGE pixels in the shadows and dust clouds? it looks so horrible. also some of the prices of the cars piss me off. some off the cars are in the millions and u need them for one race.... ok so i have to repeat and repeat and repeat races all day to buy one car and use it for one race..... a bit ridiculous but w/e theyve always done that. lastly whats w this driver level crap.... the whole point of GT is its like life... u race, make money, buy cars and parts, and go race.... if u start the game today and u wanna play 5k$ races all day for a week and buy a f1 car u could before ...not that i would... but u could..... and why not?...now u have to beat enough races and special events to get the appropriate driver level to even buy the car.... this driver level crap is a step in the arcade direction ...it forces things in succession instead of the freedom to do it now .... and in this game it seems weird u dont have to complete the licenses....? idk.... i love the graphics for the most part, i love the physics and i love the better selection of cars (ie. adding ferrari and lambo :-D) and the online used car dealership is pretty cool too .... but i just have those few gripes listed above.... and just in general even though i love the game its been 6 yrs since they debut of gt4.... this game doesnt have 6 yrs of difference..... its alot the same.... i loved gt4 so i guess thats fine but after 6 yrs (alot of which was releases delays) i expected to really be wowed with something unbelievable... this isnt ...its exactly what i expected it to be... its awesome but being what it is i expected it a couple yrs ago....
