Anybody still play this? Would love to setup a few online races if anybody is interested..

Also if anybody still has this but doesn't play it, any chance of donating a few cars to a less fortunate racer?

I've not played it for well over a year, Just stops been fun once you get past a certain point.

I always saw the problem as been that its a fun driving game, Lots of cars, Ok number of tracks & decent handing/physics, However its not that good a racing game because of the ai.

With the early 2-3 lap races in the slower cars you don't notice the ai as much, However when you get to the longer races & move upto the faster cars, The ai stops been a challenge & you just end up racing yourself.

The online challenges they updated every week or so were fun to start with, however they started getting repetitive so I stopped doing them & eventually stopped playing the game altogether.


In terms of online, Can be fun but I ended up in far too many lobby's filled with idiots. Also im not a big online gamer anyway so that side of the game was never something I was going to use that often.


The one thing that probably would have kept me playing a bit longer was something that was never implemented & that was online time trial leaderboards for any car/track combo.

I'm really enjoying it, I've only done a few of the A spec events and a few of the licenses but it's great and it looks sublime.

as someone above said the early races are fun & while i was at that early level i kept wanting to go back & do more races. its when you get about 40-50% through that it starts to become less fun as the ai offers very little challenge when you start to get into the proper racing cars.

gt5 is actually the only game in the series i've not won all the races/events on to get to 100% complete.

Once you finish A-Spec and you beat the challenges (Vettel is the hardest, impossible I'd say without a wheel) you are left with no fun, otherwise packaged on the game as B-Spec. A-Spec becomes a chore too as the AI offers no threat. When something becomes a grind about halfway through it's a problem which is a massive shame because visually the game is stunning and online you can have great fun, single player just sucks at a certain point.
