Gran Turismo

A pocket edition of the popular PlayStation racing game series, developed since 1997 by Polyphony Digital. At first, Gran Turismo Mobile was supposed to be a remake of the fourth installment, but eventually the game was slightly changed by adding new gameplay elements and extra vehicles. The new elements include i.e. previously unavailable Ferrari and Lamborghini cars and the legendary F1 racing cars. Apart from the tracks known from the original game, this version also features some brand new ones. Just like in the other titles in the franchise, you can play GT Mobile in one of the two modes—the realistic and complex career mode and the entertaining but quite challenging arcade mode. You can also extensively upgrade and modify your car and its components. The game is complemented by a multiplayer mode, allowing for races involving up to 4 players on local network.

Gran Turismo Mobile for PlayStation Portable is a mobile edition of the popular PlayStation racing game series. Developed by Polyphony Digital, it features an excellent simulation-oriented driving system, plenty of cars, and may licensed tracks from all over the world.

Mechanics

At first, GT Mobile was supposed to be a replica of the fourth installment of the franchise, but due to the large amount of work concerning Gran Turismo 5, the game was slightly changed. New elements and vehicles have been added, such as e.g. the Italian Ferrari and Lamborghini cars, as well as the legendary F1 racing cars. Apart from the locations known from the main game series, this version also features some that are brand new. You can experience all of this in two available game modes: the realistic and complex career mode, or the entertaining but quite challenging arcade mode.

Just like any other game of the genre, the gameplay of GT Mobile is based on car racing, and there are many kinds of races you can participate in: from the hyper-fast NASCAR races, through gravel rallies, to endurance races such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Victories can be achieved more easily if you upgrade and modify your car and its components. However, to participate in the most challenging races you need special licenses, which you earn as you complete certain tasks, like doing a slalom or performing an emergency braking.

Technical aspects

The most important aspect of Gran Turismo Mobile for PlayStation Portable the driving system. Despite the rather poor performance of PSP, the game's engine is very similar to that of the PlayStation version. The car behavior is superb, which shouldn't really surprise the fans of the series. Every car has unique engine characteristics as well as a set of pros and cons. The team responsible for this faithful rendering has gathered the necessary information by inspecting their real-life counterparts up close. The game's graphics, despite the small screen, are also exceptional. The game is complemented by a multiplayer mode; to participate in a multiplayer race, every player needs their own copy of the game.
