Gran Turismo 7 is officially here. As clocks have ticked over to midnight in the various regions, pre-loaded downloads have unlocked and, as we speak, delivery drivers and postal workers the world over are popping BluRay cases into people’s homes.
With gamers now able to get their hands on the game and start to play, plenty of you are getting to grips with what Gran Turismo 7 offers and seeing if the game lives up to your expectations and review scores.
The gaming press have, for the most part, given GT7 a pretty warm reception.
At various review aggregator sites, it’s hovering a couple of percentage points below 90%, which makes it the best-reviewed GT game since 2005’s Gran Turismo 4. In our own GT7 review, we gave the game a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Several users noted they did not like the game’s un-skippable intro at the start, while others are understandably upset at the poor state of the game’s “artificial intelligence” drivers and disappointed in the game’s menu system.
