- the physics alone are a reason to pick up this game! The suspension and tire model are much better than GT5, you can feel the weight transfer and loss of grip is more progressive.
- I love the new tracks, biggest surprise for me was Goodwood, its narrow and treacherous and loads of fun to drive. And I love how they added night racing and weather for a lot more tracks.
- The new cars they added are great, but I'm disappointed that some of standards still look like they're from GT4. Also Its pretty disappointing when u buy a new car, and find out it doesn't have a cockpit view, I wish they would tell us which ones do.
- New Menus are a dream compared to GT5
- The AI is strangely inconsistent, I'll be dominating for most of the race, until one or two cars just go mad and chase me down all of a sudden. But all in all its an improvement over GT5, but not great.
- Engine noises are still very dissapointing and is the biggest problem of the game.
What is everybody else thing about the game?
The better game? Forza.
The better sim? Has to be GT. Physics feel great, 30 tracks, day/night/weather, and if you, like me, have a racing wheel, the Force feedback from GT is miles better than Forza. Don't get me wrong, I love Forza, but GT has such racing passion to it, that when thinking about what I want to play, I'll always choose GT.
For most GT fans, reviews don't matter. The number they slap on the game doesn't matter to me either tbh. All I care about is they have Bathurst with a day/night cycle, the Ferrari 288 GTO, the Lancia stratos, and they've finally fixed up everything they needed fixing in the physics dept.
To OP, which reviewer said the physics do not work? The physics feel much better in this game than GT5.
BTW Forza 5 is sitting at a 81 MC while GT6 has an 80, so theres that.
@drekula2: Idk what your looking for, but Skyrim if you can learn to mod, which isn't too hard, would be great for you. Its not that hard, has a great world, you can customize things as you see fit (with mods).
Theres also a game called Galactic Civilizations 2, which is like Civ but in space, and you can create your own units in-game.
If your looking for something more online, I'm no MMO expert, but Rift is a great F2P MMO, very little restrictions on what you need to pay for, atleast it was like that half a year ago when I played for a bit.
EDIT: IDK if it is still active, but I think Garry's mod is exactly what your looking for, its a very free form game where you can creat pretty much whatever you want., and it used to have a great online community.
@isho13: By joystick do you mean like a flightstick, or a gamepad? I know for a fact that Skyrim supports the 360 gamepad, so you don't need that xpadder junk.
I'd rate them as some of the best RPGs that I've ever played, Kotor 2 being my favorite. Gameplay wise, they're pretty good, Kotor 2 has some really nice customization options for weapons/armor, I liked the level progression in both games, and classes were different enought to warrant several playthroughs, but still felt natural in the Star Wars universe. Combat can be a bit on the boring side if your used to the flashier RPGs of today though.
But really where these games excel is in the universe, the story, the characters, and the lore. Being a Star wars game you already know the world and lore is going to be awesome. The stories in both games are just as excellent, Kotor 1 has one of the best twists in a game's story that I can remember, and Kotor 2's more darker story really got to me like no other story ever did. And also the characters are some of the most iconic in Star Wars EU, characters like Revan, HK-47, Bastilla, Aton, and, my favorite, Kriea.
NFS Shift 2 is excellent racing sim (one of the best I've played)
Really? Almost all of the racing community agree that Shift 2's handling model completely ruins the game. Its a pity too, Shift 2 had one of the best track list to ever a grace a racing game, and the production quality, and the graphics are pretty good.
To OP, Assetto Corsa, from what I hear is great. rFactor is always a good choice if you know your way around mods. If you want to race online with a good community, iRacing is the best online racing sim by far, although it is more of a hobby than a game by the amount of money you will spend on it. Idk if you can still get access to the Project Cars builds, but if you can pCars is definitely the best looking sim. If you don't mind console sims, think about getting GT6, it has a ton of content for your money, by that I mean 1200+ cars, and ~30 tracks. I would stay away from Forza 5 though, Forza over the years (and I used to be a huge Forza fan until 4) has become less and less about sim racing.

Two of the most criticized aspects of GT5 are fixed, the whole UI is waaaay better, everything is easy to navigate to, no more 10 clicks to buy a car or to search where to go next.
The other aspect is load times, the game runs very much faster, there is no 20 minutes install, the game installs as you play and the overall experience is much faster.
As far as premiums and standards go, the game puts all of the cars in one place, the dealership which makes everything universal, basically you don't know which is which in the showroom unless you buy a standard and drive it which I didn't so far, so I don't know whats the difference yet.
So overall the experience feels more natural. So far it's a solid 8 for me.
Ask me anything if you want.
How'd you get the game so early?
Does the game have a good chunk of rally events like GT4?
Are there special events like GT4? (not just like GT5's petty amount)
are there a good amount of single player events in general?
what was the first car you bought?
does the handling feel better than GT5 with the improved suspension and tyres?
are there any dealer/model specific events like GT4? (e.g: Lupo cup; Aston Martin DB9 championship, etc. etc.)
What is your favourite colour?
What is your favourite type of biscuit?
you did say I could ask anything :)
This. GT6 better have 4x more events than GT5. I can't believe PD worked so hard on great features like night/day and weather transitions, karting, rallying, Nascar, and Formula 1, and barely even featured them in the Event list. All they needed to do is ADD MORE EVENTS! Man, it definitely can't be that hard to put in. I don't want to find out when I buy my favorite car, that there are no events that it is competitive in.
Only 7 more days to go! If anybody wants some leaked info, head over to GTplanet, some of it's members got their hands on GT6 already.
All in all, this game is looking good! My only concern with the game so far are the number of events, GT5 had too little, for a 1000 car game, it was so hard to find a suitable race for your favorite car. Besides that the standard models are looking good, besides a couple, Track list is absolutely amazing, considering the fact that there wil be night/day transtions, and weather for more than half of them, and love how they realy focussed on adding new European cars this time around.
@Nengo_Flow: Sold more than all other ps3 exclusives
@agpickle: What wheel do you use? I hear oval racing really demands a good wheel.
I've been following Forza 5 for months now, and I'm pretty confident it'll get a 9. Coming from Turn 10 you know the game will be solid, the only thing keeping it back from a perfect 10 would be lack of tracks, and no inclusion of night/weather. Having played Forza since the first one though, this will be the first one I skip, I can't afford to buy a new wheel for the xbox one.
@Lulu_Lulu: You know what? It could be, but I really enjoyed the end result. It could have been a lot better yes, but most stealth games never gave the feeling of tension that FC2 gave me, and they never made me rely on my instincts like FC2 did. Thats why I enjoyed it so much.
@withe1982 That's exactly how I started off FC2 too, played it got bored, then came back to it a couple months later and loved it. I really should give Deus Ex a bit more time, I feel like I'd really enjoyed it. And I agree FC3 is a better game in most aspects, I just really loved the African setting of FC2 more, and the world in FC2 felt a bit more dangerous with all those respawning enemies, and patrols. Having played through the game like 5 times now, the AI has managed to surprise me everytime I played. FC3 just felt a little too predictable.
I got bored of DX:HR, need to give it another go, but too many great games to play. My personal favorite, and everyone will laugh, is Far Cry 2. No detection meters, no hand holding, completely open world, and like in a real situation being stealthy is very difficult as you need to get headshots to prevent them from screaming and the AI can see beyond 5 ft unlike in most games. I enjoyed the challenge, the immersion, and the tension, you really have to trust your instincts, because 1 wrong move and it's over.
Screw the lunar rover (not really, its an amazing automobile) - the game includes the Delta Wing!
Sorry to burst your bubble, but the Delta Wing is no longer in the game, PD yanked it from the car list, and got rid of all images for it. Such a disappointment, it was the one car I really wanted to drive
