Grand Turismo 4

I got the game like yesterday . Had some friends working at the local video-game store and they let me know as soon as it shipped in.

I've already put down like 6+ hours into the game last night. And I've only completed about 1.25% of the game at that point :shock: . This is definitely going to be a long game to finish just like GT3.

Also, you can transfer your A & B license and up to 100,000 credits from your old GT3 saved game!!

Noticeable improvements over GT3.
1) More cars. Some are more modern while a few are a "Why did they put that in the game?". But one can never have enough cars.
2) Graphics and detail. By far, this is the most detailed and crisp looking Gran Turismo I have ever seen. The car models, the environments, some of the random suicidal spectators standing in the middle of the road as your barrel down in your rally car :shock:. This game has done a lot to improve the visuals and eye candy.
3) The physics. The game is noticeably different when it comes to the handling of the cars. It seems the game accounts for a lot more factors like lateral G forces. There is also a new feature built in in which when you bang a wall or an opponent, your screen shakes violently so your concentration is disturbed. This prevents players from driving suicidal and relying on the walls and other cars to allow them to make turns.
4) More tracks. Nurburgring just for one. But there are many many more tracks. About twice as many as I think than GT3.

I got a nice start in the game with 110k credits. Bought a Subaru STi spec C, tricked it out with a lot of stage 2 components making it about 450 hp, but forgetting to afford some racing medium slicks :? . I'm driving on the sport medium tires, but I can still beat a few of the races.
