Gran Turismo 6 is getting a good review from many gaming websites. The authors of the articles are pleased with the latest iteration of the popular game.
Segment Next gave it at least a 7.5 in all categories, with value at 8.5 and graphics at 9.
Omar Majeed of the website says that the game gives the option of “Thousands of cars, millions of configurations in balance and tuning, dozens of tracks, a slew of career races and online multiplayer to hold any racing fan for months on end.”
“Gran Turismo 6 has a lot of material to keep its fans hooked,” he said.
Joystiq.com said that the game has “familiar excellence under the hood.”
“Gran Turismo 6 is the series’ best entry, though it achieves this not through revolutionary design, but by incrementally building on past successes,” the review says.
Referring to Gran Turismo competitor Forza Motorsport 5 for Xbox One, Earnest Cavalli writes: “It’s impossible to discuss Gran Turismo 6 without mentioning the elephant in the room. Last month marked the debut of the Xbox One and Forza Motorsport 5, the latest iteration in the heir apparent to Gran Turismo’s racing simulation crown. Given that Gran Turismo 6 runs on nearly decade-old hardware, it might seem unfair to compare it to Microsoft’s flagship racer running on the publisher’s brand new console, but Gran Turismo manages to compete the same way it always has: with meticulously designed tracks, an almost pathological attention to detail and more cars than you could shake a carbon-fiber stick shift at.”
He says that the 1,000-plus cars, though, are too much, saying there’s many only slight variations of different models.
PSU.com in its review calls the game “One of the final swan songs for PS3,” giving it an 8.5.
Paul Kelly does note the hard work involved to drive most of the cars:
“Another thing Gran Turismo is known for, apart from the wide array of motors, is how long it takes to actually get to drive them. GT6 is no exception to this. The money earned though the main career mode is on par with previous games and car prices are mostly the same, but the day one 1.01 update did drop the prices of the super quick Red Bull X cars from 20 million credits to 6 million and halved the prices of most, if not all, of the Le Mans racing cars.”
