Gran Turismo Sport Review | AOTF
The Gran Turismo series IS PlayStation’s flagship driving game. It’s one of the most popular racing series of all time, with Polyphony Digital releasing a new game on every PlayStation console to date. Gran Turismo Sport is this generation’s first, and while the name doesn’t have a number behind it, it is a main entry in a series which has seen spin-offs occasionally. This sentiment comes directly from Kazunori Yamauchi, and it’s a strange one as the series creator has taken this franchise in an entirely new direction with this release. GT Sport is bewildering in its design, breaking away from a conventional structure that games in this series (and racing games in general) has adhered to for quite some time. It takes a less is more approach, offering less cars and tracks, less single player content, and trades that for exacting detail and a laser focus on competition. If anything, GT Sport is ambitious…perhaps to a fault.
