At least what is there looks good. Gran Turismo Sport is a gorgeous game. It runs smoothly and well. The way light and shadows play off of the cars accentuates their details and makes them feel at place in the world. Especially when you head into Scapes, the game’s photo mode. There are lots of backdrops to choose from, you can place multiple cars in the shots, you can alter the way the existing image and cars look, and basically adjust and tweak everything until it looks absolutely stunning. Combine this with a very detailed Livery section populated with items collected from the Mileage Exchange, and you can customize cars you’ve collected and create some incredible shots.

Speaking of the Mileage Points, they point to a thing Gran Turismo Sport does very well. This is a game that encourages you to play. Certain activities and options are locked away until you reach certain levels, as are different tracks. Credits can be used on Brand Central cars and earned from various activities, while Mileage Points earned whenever you drive can be used on Livery items and special cars in Mileage Exchange. There are daily activities that reward you for checking in and putting time in with the game. Plus, achievements actually provide tangible, in-game rewards, which is far more rewarding than any pop-up.

Gran Turismo Sport feels like a game people shouldn’t be buying now. Rather, it is something that should be revisited in three or six months. There is too much that needs to be done here. While it handles and looks well, with an Arcade mode and online elements that are rather solid, the Campaign isn’t fulfilling and too much gets locked away the second online connectivity has been taken away. There are too few cars and tracks here, something that will hopefully be remedied with both free and paid updates. If it gets the proper support, it could end up being a respectable entry in the series. At the moment, Gran Turismo Sport feels like a precursor to greater things.

This is a gorgeous game, with detailed cars and the option to tweak their appearances to your liking.
Gran Turismo Sport offers multiple control options so everyone, from hardcore players to casuals, can find something accurate and comfortable that works for them.
Music / Sound FX / Voice Acting
Cars sound rather good and realistic, and most of the soundtrack is good. A little more ambient noise would have been nice.
Play Value
15-20 hours will see you through the story, and give or take a bit more to polish off the side quests. Linear structure and shallow combat don’t offer much replayability.
