Gran Turismo 7 Reviews
With excellent visuals and loads of content, Gran Turismo 7 VR is an absolute triumph for PlayStation VR2 thanks to a free update that brings an already excellent driving experience to a new level in virtual reality.
Gran Turismo 7 is the same amazing simulation-focused racer elevated by VR in ways I wasn’t expecting.
Gran Turismo, which has returned with a more beautiful and realistic appearance, meets the expectations of a wide range of users, from beginners to core fans. In addition to the weather and time changes, the expressiveness of small details such as tire smoke has been improved, and the realistic feeling of the race scene has been greatly improved. While the revival of traditional gameplay is a welcome one, the fact that it sticks too far with the old style lacks freshness and leads to a thirst for new play.
A synthesis of classic GT and GT Sport, but always with the usual defects of the license. GT7 remains a beautiful love letter to automotive history and a very good "simarcade",
Polyphony Digital celebrates 25 years of its series with the return of the campaign and the most focussed and finessed Gran Turismo to date.
Mixing the original GT's trendsetting format with GT Sport's stern but very successful focus on competitive online racing, Gran Turismo 7 makes a few errors but is a potent podium performance from developer Polyphony Digital.
We’ll have a full review of Gran Turismo 7 and it’s VR experience in due course but even after a few hours it’s clear that it, and the other pre-existing games, are far better justification for buying the PlayStation VR2 than any of its exclusive titles.
Making full use of PlayStation 5's DualSense controller to convey an incredibly deep and satisfying driving model, everything from weather to reflected sound effects have been modelled to perfection – making Gran Turismo 7 easily the world's most complete driving game.
Everything that made GT Sport so good, plus everything that made early Gran Turismo games so good. A simply stunning driving game and a superb showcase for PS5.
Despite its multiplayer shortcomings, Gran Turismo 7 is a terrific racing experience. I love the emphasis on car collection and the respect paid to the history of automobiles and racing culture. Gran Turismo 7 provides some of the best driving mechanics available and gives you several guided ways in which to engage with it. While it sometimes spends too much time off the track, every long cutscene is clearly done with love, and that sentiment shines through even more on the track.
Gran Turismo 7 takes all the good bits of Gran Turismo's past, shakes it up, and adds a sprinkling of car culture to sweeten the deal.
Aging gracefully, Polyphony’s racing series has never seemed more like itself
From its photo-realism to its pinpoint handling and extensive amount of additional features, Gran Turismo 7 is another first-party PS5 success and a new benchmark for performance and visuals on the console.
Gran Turismo 7 isn’t the second coming of racing games, and it doesn’t need to be. It still captures that feeling of spending hours and hours admiring your garage and flipping through car facts from a few of the best entries in the series, and still feels like a big-budget racer.
Gran Turismo 7 is the pinnacle of simulators, and no longer just driving. In addition, the game goes a step further and borders on eroticism in the motor world: observing the cars, taking pictures of them and seeing relaxing cinematics of these driving is not only part of Gran Turismo 7, but is one of its fundamental pillars. In short, the game is a perfect cocktail of elegance and competition.

Polyphony Digital comes back to the roots with a driving simulator that feels better than ever by doing the same as ever, thanks to a very unique style. It has some little issues in terms of balance, but, inside the tracks and beyond them, it is a worthy successor of 25 years of Gran Turismo legacy.

Gran Turismo 7 takes everything that was excellent about GT Sport's fantastic multiplayer, high fidelity cars and circuits and innovative Scapes mode, and builds up a more traditional GT experience around it. It's got its own quirky new ideas which will likely be passing diversions to most, but at its core, this is the Gran Turismo you know and love. Broad and accessible, but with depth, nuance and competitive racing for those keen to find it.
The presentation is a bit odd in 2022 and I would have liked to get ray-traced visuals in gameplay, but it doesn’t detract from the high you can get when shaving a few tenths on a flying lap at the Nordschleife. Sure, modern gamers may tell you that Nathan Drake or Aloy are the true mascots of the PlayStation brand, but Sony already had its Mario back in 1997 in the form of the Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R.
Gran Turismo 7 combines realism and pleasure in a way that you rarely find so accurate in simulation games.
