Perfectionism, detail, depth
Prepare to radically alter your perception of what a driving game should be. Offering racing in every form imaginable, Gran Turismo 5 puts you at the centre of the motoring universe with a range of modes and events designed to get the petrol pumping through your veins.
Jump straight into fiercely intense races, time trials and drift trials in Arcade Mode or design your own racetracks with the intuitive Course Maker. And, for the definitive Gran Turismo 5 experience, head to GT Mode.
Through the innovative My Home page, the hub of GT Mode, you'll be able to access a series of events and skill-boosting licence tests, as well as your garage, car dealerships and a range of dynamic tuning options. As you complete races and licence tests, you will earn experience points and your driving level will increase, so you can then participate in new races and buy additional cars.
A-Spec Racing sees you competing in a series of tiered events of increasing challenge and prestige. You'll find yourself at a festival of Japanese micro-cars, trading paint with priceless prototypes, on a starting grid surrounded by howling Italian supercars and much, much more, driving everything from a Mini Cooper S to the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce '09. Every car feels unique thanks to an unrivalled vehicle physics engine.
You can also mastermind track domination from the pit lane, thanks to Gran Turismo 5's B-Spec Racing mode. As team director, you will build a squad of up to six drivers, train them, then take them to the track where you'll react to whatever the opposition throws at you. And if you're after something more offbeat, try the Special Events mode where you can race Volkswagen camper vans, 200mph NASCAR racers and even super-karts. The depth of the Gran Turismo series is legendary, but Gran Turismo 5 takes you deeper than ever before.
This is the real driving simulator, only on PlayStation 3.
