Ahead of reviews going live, VGC’s Jordan Middler and Chris Scullion – who have both been playing the game separately – linked up to discuss their thoughts.
Both come to the same conclusion: as our review puts it, it’s “a fantastic racing game buried under tedious exposition”. You can watch the discussion here:
In VGC’s Gran Turismo 7 review, we said: “If you can suffer through the clunky menus, endless dull dialogue and 100 visits to the cafe, then there’s an excellent racing game somewhere hidden in Gran Turismo 7.
“It’s baffling that the game does its best to impede you from getting to the track, but when you actually get there, there’s a lot of fun to be had.
“Everything about the game feels deeply dated, until you get behind the wheel and then it feels like an incredibly impressive driving simulator, it’s just such a shame that you need to deal with so much needless hassle to arrive at your destination.”
