Well, it's finally here. After being delayed for a year or so, GT4 hit American shelves today. I don't think the game was a let down at all....the grapics are superb like always, there are 650 cars, and the ton of new tracks are excellent. One dissapointment is the lack of an online mode. As you may know, it was planned to be part of the game but was pulled shortly before release. I did read somewhere that they might release an online mode disk that you could buy and install if you have a HDD. I am not sure if this is just a rumor or something Polyphony is working on. As for me, I spent most of tonight watching my dad play since it was his birthday present...but I got to play some as well and it's a shitload of fun. What makes things even better is that I have the Logitech Driving Force Pro steering wheel. The wheel's 900 degree rotation really makes the game so much better. I think this game is going to be a huge success and am glad to say it was well worth the wait.

Final verdict- 8.5/10 <would be 9/10 if it had Online mode.

Yeah, the game was always stunning. But the new GT4 is very sleek, smooth, and stylish.

I like when you finsh the race, the camera angles are very good. Love playing around with that. biggrin.gif

I heard there was a photo mode, where you can take pictures of your race, i was just wondering if this is still true. I heard this on a Magazine DVD. I hope its true (crosses fingers)

Yes there is Photo mode. There is a list of locations you can pick from such as Time Square and Grand Canyon. You can choose where to put your car and where to put the camera, change the angles, use filters, and a couple other effects to make your pic look good. You can then save the pic to your memory card or a USB storage device. I'll be posting pics of my cars on here soon! wink.gif

Ok here are my first two pictures of my first car.

It is a 1986 Toyota MR2 Super Charged. This was my first car in real life which is why I bought it....only mine was a '87 and it was red. Hope you like!

Ah yes, the power of...superchargedness. Mr2s are good cars, congrats Gfx. Would Gran Turismo nearly be as good without the wheel though?

Yea the game is good. I got all the licenses, 'cept the super, and a nice collection of cars already. At first I was slowly gaining money in my '95 Impreza, but then I found (2) races where the car you win is valued at about 250K. I now own a 2005 version of the Ford GT 40, a Lotus Esprit V8, some 900 hp+ Nissan that I won...and some more nifty cars. I wish I had the needed equipment to upload the pictures.

You can transfer the A and B licences and up to 100,000 credits but thats it. I actually think its good they dont let you transfer your cars because that would make it too easy and take some of the fun out of it.

I think it's better to start over. the license tests are different then the previous Gt's and you earn cars by doing them. It doesn't take long to get 100k anyways.
