Gran Turismo 7: Is the best racing game going back to its roots?

Gran Turismo 7 is available now for PlayStation PS4 and PS5. The all-important question: is the racing game going back to its roots?

It’s the racing game for PlayStation: Gran Turismo! Since the first part of the saga was published in 1997 (in Europe from 1998), the Gran Turismo series has been one of the most popular racing games worldwide. Almost incidentally, Gran Turismo also co-founded the JDM scene (Japanese Domestic Market) in Europe thanks to its extreme variety of cars.

In addition to the almost endless car selection, which reached its peak in Gran Turismo 6 with an unbelievable 1247 cars, the series inspired from the start with great graphics for the respective time, a simulator-like driving experience and a captivating career mode.

Gran Turismo has existed for every PlayStation generation. The last title “Gran Turismo Sport” for the PlayStation 4 was released in October 2017 – with a much smaller selection of cars and without a real career mode. Gran Turismo is back after four and a half years, just in time for its 25th anniversary!

Auto Select and Scopes

Gran Turismo 7 should again put a stronger focus on the solo mode and bring back the typical Gran Turismo feeling popular with fans. The 424 cars come from all classes and brands, including models from Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Co. There are also 34 tracks in 90 different layouts to choose from. The new GT7 clearly trumps its predecessor Gran Turismo Sport, but is still a long way from the huge car selection in GT6.

Automotive highlights include:

● Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo
● BMW M3 (E30) Sport Evolution
● Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo
● Ferrari 250 GTO
● Ferrari F50
● Honda Integra Type R (DC2)
● Lamborghini Aventador LP750SV
● Lancia Stratos
● Mazda 787B
● McLaren P1 GTR
● Mercedes-AMG C 63 S
● Mercedes AMG GT R
● Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI GSR T.M. version

● Pagani Zonda R
● Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Evolution 2
● Porsche 911 Carrera RS (964)
● Porsche Carrera GT
● Renault 5 Turbo
● VW Samba Type 2

Gran Turismo 7 shines with a good test score

In the first test by the colleagues from COMPUTER BILD, GT7 was able to convince above all with an outstanding gameplay as well as with varied game modes and a large selection of customization. So it cleared the test score of 1.5.
