Got home and unpacked my fresh version of GT5. Oh lordy lord.
The smell of the instruction booklet’s fresh print. *shiver runs down spine*. This is it. It’s here. It’s finally FUCKING here.
It takes ages to install GT5. 43 minutes on my PS3 classic 40GB. The game needs a fair bit of space. If I remember correctly, it was 8GB and some… which is fine!
*drools*. So much machinery, I don’t know what to do with myself. The video was very cool. It demonstrates the process of car creation including all the metal making parts which was absolutely fantastic. All in 1080p… yum yum.
The User Interface:
My date and time were wrong so after the initial panic of the fact I could not select any of the menu options because it could not sync, it all seemed pretty good. Slow, but good. It looks beautiful and makes sense. Very nice intuitive layout. I like the idea of the home page, very cool.
The simulator / Game:
*drools*. GT5 has the physics absolutely spot on! I cannot believe how real this game feels. It’s actually scary. Graphics are a bit shit, but the simulator is addictive. The events are plentiful. The game just feels so right. I love it with a passion.
The server list is extremely slow, and my joystick seemed unresponsive whilst the server list loaded. It reminded me of Battlefield Bad Company 2 when it first came out on PC. My connection cut out half way through it updating and GT5 would not respond after it had done so. I had to restart in the end.
Apart from that, the multiplayer itself was very cool. I assume that there will be a lot of work to be done in updating the whole multiplayer feature… It’s all a bit lacking. But don’t worry, you’ll love it nonetheless.
The music is gorgeous, and plentiful. A lot of it is very loungy so it really fits well with the whole driving theme.
Verdict – 4/5
Haha, ver-”dick”-t. Anyway. I love this game. If you like driving, you must get this game. Trust me, it’ll be everything you were looking for and more. It’s my favourite racing game so far.
Oh by the way, it has our car in it: Mazda 6 MPS, first race you participate in:
Here’s some other reviews:
Please take them with salt, they are very focused on it being a game rather than a simulator, thing is. If you love driving, you’ll love this game. I don’t understand why they are attacking it so much. It’s a very big success, its a 3 thumbs up (“Incest in the morning… 97.1″)

Hardman Skateboards, Personalised skateboard graphics
20 July , 2010
Hardman Skateboards have been working damn hard to get something going and they’re doing a flipping good job so far. I want you all to see what ambition and hard work can achieve.
They’re creating personalised skateboards by buying good quality decks and spraying they’re own emotional juices on the bottom (Yum).
I personally recommend visiting they’re Facebook page where you can look at they’re upcoming collection of graphics and designs.
