    No! I mean I fall asleep during driving.

    Mind you the AI is so bad it's easy, but without a wheel it makes things quite boring most of the time.

    i kinda liked the gt5 driving model but its ai made my blood boil, racing was more about what car you has as opposed to the AI having skill.

    if they fix it i might come back but as it stands i dunno

    All you have to do is choose a car in a similar points range and you can have a challenging race in GT, if you go in with something mental you will of course dominate, its upto you to really.

    I can't believe how little I've played GT5, completed the main races, and one of the endurance, and that's been it.

    I used to live on GT4, I'd spend entire days on it, same with GT3.
    Not sure if its me that's changed or the game just isn't as good, I suspect a bit of both.


    Be interesting to see what comes with the 2.0 update. Hopefully the DLC should add a few more premium cars.

    The fact that I lost my old PSN account means I've stopped playing GT5. Mind you I had pretty much everything minus a few endurances and the FGT B-spec.

    The driving model is fantastic though. But as gunsmith said, the AI is pathetic (even in even specced cars).

    I guess with Forza 4 out in a couple of weeks it is no surprise that GT5 is getting another lick of paint. I enjoyed my time on GT5, but it did get a little boring after a while and I could not get into the online racing as much as I did with Forza 3.

    I hope they have a few more tracks in the update or the DLC as that may give it another lease of life for me. I don't think I will ever finish the last two endurance races though!

    Only 11 months after release and 2.0 is imminent, with all the DLC and updates they promised and enticed us with a year ago. :rolleyes:

    I'm the same - I haven't picked it up in ages. I might do tonight for a little while, have a run round again. The driving model is magnificent, but even the AI aside the races set up are quite boring. I have been doing quite a few of the weekly challenges though, which spice things up nicely.

    The career is a complete let down, the seasonals are alot more fun, more competitive more of a challenge.

    Some nice additions but i was expecting alittle more its really doesnt amount to 2.0 in my view, its alittle bigger than some of the other updates but not much

    The UI really needed some work, so sluggish

    I would have much preffered to be able to change wheels or aero kits on standard cars rather than interiors, but i guess most people might preffer the interiors

    Adjustable front downforce is something that would be useful too

    No. 7 looks good - I might actually do those last two endurance races now! Did you say a track pack has been released?

    So track pack and race car/race wear pack is paid? The only way I'll get my hand out of my pocket is 1) Spa Francorchamps 2) Aston DB9 Zagato Racers.

    yeah, not quite what I was expecting.

    I was expecting a load of new Premium cars. Suppose the interior view on standard cars is nice, depending on how 'simplified' it is.

    G25/27 support? I've been playing with my G25 since day one, what was wrong there?

    Doesn't look like much really, and to be honest, if it was my game, alot of it would have been in the initial release.
    And why do we need ANOTHER Nissan? :D

    just saw this on the gtplanet facebook page.

    open cockpit cars have a low res cockpit(probably just from the car model) and closed roof cars have just a black out line

    This has just been pointed out to me

    [​IMG]

    The GTR was never a race mod before(unless that is a acadamey car), or the RX7 (could be the light blue race car) and the R33 GTR at the back isnt race mod and the picture isnt credited to anyone as it usually would be. Maybe there are more race mods on the way

    That X2010 is insane! 287mph on the Le Mans track without the chicanes.

    Previous best TG Test Track time: 0.56.12 with that F1 type car (name escapes me)

    New best time: 0.45.62, first run, with a controller. Let me hook my wheel up to it and I reckon I can shave a few more seconds. Was with Racing Hards as well. The car is an absolute beast!
