there is a review of the jap verision here, http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/driving/...gumballs;img;0.

it seems that gran turismo 5 prologue isn't a full game... so this is just a teaser we spend $60 on and in future the full gran turismo 5 comes out? i don't understand.

also looking at the pictures, the menus are in english. did you guys that ordered recieved the game. is it english menus?

I ordered it on Friday last week, so I'll let you guys know when I get it. I'm sure I'll be getting the English version when it comes out, but who knows when that will be. Hopefully this will tide me over for a while!

This is how GT has been since inception. Though it hasn't always been so much $$.

The Game Just got in……!

The Good:
Awesome Graphics/Physics, Vehicles Behave very life like
3 BMW’s to choose from in this Version E92 M3, 135i, Z4 3.0i
Plus A Hefty Bunch more Manufacturers. The 5 Tracks in the Game Offer Great Fun as well.

The Bad (Or not So Bad)
THIS IS NOT THE FULL Game, That Would be named, “GT 5” Plain and Simple, Just like the Title states this is the “Prologue/Preface/Intro” of what the game would be like…..Can’t think of anything other to add as being bad, even though I don’t think this is bad…..

Is this the same as the free downloadable Demo ?
Not Even Close, this is more like 25% Of the Final game where the Demo is something Around 2-3% w’ only 1 track available, Arcade mode bound, and 5 cars only…!

Was it worth the $45.00 ?

Well…What’s 45 nowdays, seriously….My 335 needed 51.72 today @ the Pump, so YES it’s definitely worthy of a “Tank of Gas” Tag,

Heck….It saved my car from being driven rather spiritedly How can I explain it, it fulfils your “Need for speed”

And I don’t have to worry about killing a 72 year old man making a turn in His 76’ Camaro and ending my future. (Referring to the recent MBenz Vs Mustang Accident)

Cheers,

Buy and Enjoy the Game.

P.S
THE GAME IS IN JAPANESE, there is no option to change to English, don’t let that scare you the menus are a breeze to navigate, just remember, when you are asked a Q by a Box YES ? is on the Left and NO? on the right….!

Oh….

The First time you Put it in the system, make sure you are connected Online since it will need to Download the “codec” for the English System ( as I was told), The Download took 8 Minutes and the Game started right after that.


Hope you all have a Happy~Merry~And most importanly, Safe New Years.

Thanks for the review! Great info on number of tracks and cars compared to demo. Maybe a GT5/PS3 bundle will go on sale in the US come March.

Yeah, Gamestop Rep told me the GT5 and the Logitech Steering wheel will be 99.99 as a Bundle, Great price....But still, this is a great taste for something that is is 3 months away

I just got mine yesterday as well. It's great, the menu is easy to navigate, although I was hoping it was going to have a 2 player head to head version. Can't wait to see the full version, definitely worth 50 bucks.
