Gran Turismo 5 Prologue real life comparison

How realistic is the most realistic racer ever? See what you think

Piccadilly Circus is an impressive likeness, although a few things are notably different, such as text missing from the advertising boards, different dimensions for the statue and no yellow hatching on the road. When in motion, the game doesn’t look as good as Project Gotham Racing 4, as GT5P has the series’ usual ‘clean’ look to it, like the sterile recreation of Monaco in GT3. But it’s smooth and pretty and the track’s route is a challenging, fun choice.
