A highly accessible addition to the GT franchise set to broaden the appeal of the series, GT Concept is aimed at those who may find the investment of time and skill necessary to get the best out of the full Gran Turismo experience slightly daunting. It therefore abandons Gran Turismo Mode in favour of an instant-fix, arcade approach, which ensures that even the most inexperienced gamer can jump straight behind the wheel and accelerate away.
This doesn’t mean that corners have been cut. If anything, many of the features of Gran Turismo 3 have been improved upon, with minor gameplay and graphical tweaks – until you’ve seen a car in Gran Turismo, you won’t believe how good they can look in a game. And the whole game has been put together with the perfectionism and attention to detail that millions of petrol-heads now automatically associate with the Gran Turismo series.
