Gran Turismo Creator Kazunori Yamauchi hits out


Creator of the massively successful Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi has hit out at driving games released since Gran Turismo  4 in 2004 by saying that the ‘low level of quality really shines through’. The interview was with and he stated his ambitions for GT5 and also talked about GT5: Prologue as well. asked Yamauchi what he thought of racing games that had been released since 2004 (GT4 days) and he wasn’t exactly kind with what he had to say –

Kazunori Yamauchi – “Actually I find it difficult to play the other games in more than five minutes at a time. The game’s low level of quality really shines through in the other games and I cannot hold them out!”

Interesting words from such an icon in the Playstation world and it will be interesting to see if fans agree with his comments and GT5 lives up to expectations when it’s released sometime in 2010 in Europe.

In terms of looks I would have to agree with what he says as GT5 blows everything else out of the water and although Forza 3 is a great looking game, it’s not a patch on GT5. The one thing that needs a big improvement on GT5 in my opinion is the way the A.I reacts etc as it looks like they still have the ‘stick to driving in a line’ way of thinking and this is something that needs to be rectified for GT5.
