A marvellous soundtrack and authentic car noises, all brought to life by 3D spatial audio. It's fantastic. And there are even sounds coming out of the DualSense speaker. What's not to like?
Jaw-dropping, eyeball-caressing graphics across the board, from the 400-odd cars rendered in ludicrous detail, to the circuits, weather effects, and even the menus. Gorgeous. Shame there's still no proper damage model, though.
All I can think about right now is playing Gran Turismo 7 – it's that good. Handling is tight and intuitive, while a wealth of tuning options and assists enable you to tweak and tailor things to your liking. DualSense features are also fantastic and add to the immersion. Brill.
Granted, you have to unlock a lot of it, but once you have, GT7's options are more than extensive, with car collecting, racing, multiplayer, leaderboards, the best photo mode around, and loads more making for one of the most comprehensive (and polished) racing games you can buy.
A perfectly solid trophy list, which covers a bunch of early milestones, before drawing you in for a heft dose of grind. Driving 8,000-odd miles online? Wow. Oh, and attaining gold an all licence tests again will take some doing. Shout out to the hairpin test for almost breaking me.
