Eye Candy for Car Enthusiasts
Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi's never-ending quest for perfection has been well-documented throughout the evolution of the Gran Turismo franchise, so it's no surprise that his team's latest effort is its most impressive work yet. Few racing games look this amazingly lifelike. From the tuned-up cars you'll hop into to the sprawling and dynamic courses you'll burn rubber across, every aspect of Gran Turismo 6's visual design is bathed in stunning photorealistic detail. At times, it's hard to tell that you're even playing a game at all. Polyphony pushes the PS3 to its limits, squeezing out every ounce of detail and performance possible.
