Gran Turismo 7, the latest entry in PlayStation Studio’s esteemed driving series, is releasing this Friday, but reviews have dropped for the title today. How did it score? Well, it’s currently sitting at a score of 88 on MetaCritic, so it has definitely proven popular with reviewers – so much so it even has a few perfect 10/10 scores.

It’s a big improvement over the MetaScore of 75 achieved by Gran Turismo Sport when that launched back in 2017, so it’s clear that the team at Polyphony Digital have made plenty of improvements with the series’ PlayStation 5 debut.

We’ve selected some of the reviews that stood out the most to us – you can check them out down below:

God is a Geek – 10/10

Hardcore Gamer – 10/10

“Gran Turismo 7 is the quintessential Gran Turismo and the best of what the series has accrued over its 25 years of existence. The game is beautiful, detailed and fresh, powered by a detailed handling model that’s yet to be seen in racing games.”

VG247 – 10/10

“You can, perhaps, reductively describe Gran Turismo 7 as ‘GT Sport with a single-player component’. But seeing as that was all GT Sport needed to be an absolutely stellar racing game, this is a must-have for hardcore racing fans and the kind of game that is so good it might actually transform a few casual players into bonafide petrolheads themselves.”

PlayStation Universe – 9/10

“Though Gran Turismo 7 certainly carries the baggage of some of the weaker elements from previous games, a steadfast return to the generous single-player campaign offerings of old, together with a significantly upgraded visual presentation and most importantly a deeply felt love for cars that bleeds through every aspect of the game all ensures that one single statement is true. Gran Turismo is back.”

Digital Trends – 8/10

“Gran Turismo 7 is a comprehensive racing simulator with features that will please series fans, those looking to learn about cars, and people who just want to race casually. While this simulator is more focused on making the player feel elegant rather than exhilarated, it sticks to its vision and highlights the power of the PS5.”

VGC – 6/10

“If you can suffer through the clunky menus, endless dull dialogue and 100 visits to the cafe, then there’s an excellent racing game somewhere hidden in Gran Turismo 7. It’s baffling that the game does its best to impede you from getting to the track, but when you actually get there, there’s a lot of fun to be had.”
