Is Gran Turismo 7 a Good Game?

, door Mark Verwoert, 2 min leestijd

Gran Turismo 7, the latest installment in the king of racing simulators, roared onto the PlayStation scene in March 2022. Combining the series' legendary focus on realism with stunning visuals and a wealth of content, Gran Turismo 7 offers an unparalleled experience for both casual car enthusiasts and hardcore racing aficionados.

Gran Turismo 7: A Return to Form

After a slight shift in focus with Gran Turismo Sport, Gran Turismo 7 marks a triumphant return to the series' core strengths. The iconic "GT Campaign" mode is back, allowing players to progress through a solo career, purchasing and upgrading a dream garage of cars as they compete in a variety of races and challenges. The classic "Arcade Mode" also returns, offering a quick and easy way to jump into a race or hone your skills.

More Than Just Races

Gran Turismo 7 isn't just about competition. The game boasts a lovingly recreated "Livery Editor," allowing players to unleash their inner artist and create custom designs for their cars. Photography enthusiasts will find themselves engrossed in the game's "Scapes" mode, which features stunning real-world locations to capture the perfect automotive photo.

VR Support and Haptic Feedback Push the Limits of Realism

For those lucky enough to own a PlayStation VR2 (with a free in-game update), Gran Turismo 7 offers a truly immersive virtual reality experience. Putting you right behind the wheel, VR takes sim racing to a whole new level. Additionally, the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller provides incredible haptic feedback, allowing you to feel the subtle nuances of every turn and bump in the road.

While the DualSense controller offers a compelling experience, for the ultimate Gran Turismo 7 experience, consider investing in a dedicated sim racing wheel for PlayStation. These peripherals provide a more realistic feel and greater control, allowing you to truly feel connected to the car and the track.

Gran Turismo 7: A Celebration of Car Culture

Gran Turismo 7 is more than just a racing game; it's a love letter to the entire world of automobiles. The game features a massive selection of cars, from classic muscle cars to cutting-edge hypercars, each meticulously recreated in stunning detail. With a museum mode showcasing the history of automotive manufacturers and a wealth of information available for each car, Gran Turismo 7 is an educational experience as well.

Whether you're a seasoned Gran Turismo veteran or a newcomer to the world of sim racing, Gran Turismo 7 offers an unparalleled experience. With its stunning visuals, wealth of content, and commitment to realism, Gran Turismo 7 is a must-have for any PlayStation owner.
