Gran Turismo Sport hands-on review

New upstarts like DriveClub have tried to steal the crown, but Polyphony is finally back to defend it with GT Sport.

With some serious sponsorships and FIA approval, the first Gran Turismo to hit the PS4 is gearing up for its parade lap, but after I got the chance to sniff the virtual petrol at Sony's London launch event, I'm wondering if there have been a few missed gears in the run up to launch.

There were 20 on show at the reveal event, with 137 promised for the full release, split between four power groups.

Beginners should stick to the hot hatches and stock sportscars of Group 4, but eventually you'll progress up to the mental race-spec road warriors and fictional GT Vision concept cars of Group 1.

Anyone can jup into an official FIA race weekend, with winners from each region progressing to an international finals event, with full race commentary and global broadcast online.

Polyphony has a long way to go to hit the eSports big time, but the in-game spectator camera looked as slick as anyting you'd see on Sky Sports F1.
