That Eurogamer review... hats off to them, that is a great review by someone who seems to genuinely know what they are talking about.

I wont be buying GT, but am always glad when it does well. Reminds me of my youth when I could be bothered with racing games...

For me, the most important aspect is how the game encourages fair play online play. This is where all other console Sims fall flat. Even pc2. Online racing with strangers is impossible without some penalty system.

Oh and the superb graphics and wide selection of dream cars also doesn't hurt.

Good that early reviews emphasize the fairness aspect.

That DLC road map Evolution did was fantastic, it showed you what you were getting for your season pass or if you needed one. Such a great idea, shame hardly any other companies have taken that one board.

But so far the solo campaign is a massive set of events and challenges. Havenít seen any championships yet, but lots of race events. There is enough to keep busy, but itís gold medal chasing moreso than the career progression of older titles.

Not saying one is good and one is bad, they're both bad, but I think D1 embargos should be a top complaint from us players.

D1 embargos are often in place to make sure D1 patches are taken into account and servers are up and running.

The hotfix for consumers is to never pre-order games and wait for reviews.

Reviews are better than expected tbh, it's good to see credit for taking online racing and respect for opponents more seriously.

The online focus shouldn't be an excuse for jettisoning some perfectly good assets or eviscerating the usual SP campaign.

This is an online focused game, do you think that it's right to review a game withouth pointing out the stability of the server and the quality of the online portion itself?

Not at all. It's far more gradual and "guided". DC was more a case of here's a car (or 5), here's a track (or 3) and a race condition (day, night, wet, dry, dynamic etc.) here's a game type i.e. drift, race, point-to-point etc. and here's a championship every now and then.

In GT it's more, learn to brake, learn to steer, learn to corner in different ways with different types of cars and on different types of surfaces. Then use all of that to learn to race and learn the nuances of the different tracks, learn to manage strategy, and in the process find the cars that you enjoy driving the most. I'm not sure if "learn to adjust setup" is in there but I would presume so as it is a key part of maximising performance

But you had the demo to try the game out yourself. Why do you need a review??? Surely playing it yourself will be far better than someone else's opinion?

YMMV but I reached SR "S" by the end of the demo and had a lot of clean races.
Not sure about PC2 but I thought it had a similar rating system (maybe it just doesn't have matchmaking?)


Anyway I was really impressed with GT Sport demo, I can see myself spending a lot of time in Sport mode.
Martin Robinson's review is great, you can see he's passionate about the genre. Gamesport review is a mess, failing to acknowledge Tag (sic) Heuer's importance is embarassing.
Apparently this guy is the same who didn't even finish Crash Remastered Trilogy before reviewing it.

He's entitled to his opinion but I found it weird about TAG though.... I'm not a huge fan of Racing genre but even I know about them.. so it kind of ...... I don't know......

This game grabs you real quick and knows how to hold on.

Damn it, I should be asleep right now. But I'm curious about these early reviews and reviews-in-progress.

I selfishly had hoped for lower scores because of the lack of a "proper" GT single player campaign. I only play two racing games, Forza Horizon and GT and i really wanted a normal GT. Oh well at least it will benefit GT7 that the racing seems good in GT Sport.

I'll probably pick up GT Sport when it's cheaper.

Glad to hear it's reviewing well. The demo bored me to tears, I think Forza Horizon 3 has ruined most other racing games for me, especially ones that aren't designed to be fun.

I'll probably rent it to try the VR mode and see if the full game is anymore appealing to me.

What I really want is basically a GT3 HD remaster.

Pc2 does not have the same system. There is no matchmaking in pc2 and the host of a lobby has to manually set for which kind of driver he wants to open the lobby. So unless you encounter competent randoms (cough), there is a lot that can go wrong in pc2 online. There is "sportsmanship rating" in pc2 though.

There is nothing more infuriating then being bumped off course by a bad loser. I completely lose interest in the game when this is the norm rather then the exception.

Does GTS have matchmaking? Genuinely asking because I spent not much time with the demo.

yeah. especially then even negative reviews mention that gameplay (driving) is fun.

for example, GameSpot:

I can say that when I'm not shaking my head at strange limitations and designs, I genuinely enjoy driving in GT Sport--that's one thing Polyphony Digital hasn't lost sight of.

It is designed to be fun but track racing fun rather than open world in cars fun which are very different things.

Ah thanks. Yes, Sport Mode is essentially matchmaking w/ Driver and Sportsmanship Ratings (DR, SR). The game matches you with other people similar in skill and fairness. Works better the more you play, for obvious reasons.

Also in lobbies you can require a minimum SR level, I guess like PC2.

to be fair, Polyphony Digital were saying since the beginning that it will be online focused game. So it's like complaining on Overwatch or any other multiplayer focused game.

You can say this about a lot of games these days, but Metacritic should really employ some kind of moderation or something on the user ratings for games like this.

For GT Sport, there are currently a number of negative scores of 0, one of which is just "Playstation 1 graphics forza 7 is better" copy-pasted 10 times. I think there is just cause to be upset about the shift in single-player content, and obviously everyone has their own view on how good a game is, but review-bombing is no good.

So do you like reviews of incomplete and/or unplayable games?

All reviews should be made after the game resealed in my opinion... everything before that is just a preview.

It is the same with movies... you have Reviews after debut on theaters and not before it.

I would think publishers who want to hide their game until release day generally don't offer the opportunity for everyone to play for days a very large and representative demo of their game but that's maybe just me.
