GRAN TURISMO 4: PROLOGUE ABOUT
Gran Turismo 4: Prologue was released prior to Gran Turismo 4, hence the Prologue name (!), and it is basically just a really big demo disk (which is the same diameter as other disks, just to confuse you) or preview of GT4. It was only sold in Japan, China and the Europe/PAL region. Because all the other regions were naughty and didn't clean their room.

The game had the new GT4 engine in it which meant the handling/physics had changed, the graphics were better and car sounds improved too. As far as what i think of it; it is the best handling, best looking, best sounding and most realistic Gran Turismo *ever*. Well it was until bettered by GT4 itself! And then GT5. And even that was bettered by (preempting myself here) GT6.

Sixty-four (64) cars and five (5) tracks are included in the game which would be the same as GT Concept were it not for the fact that GT Concept has 31 (31 ... uh, i mean thirty-one) more driveable cars than Prologue (yes, i counted - WAA HEEEE!!!!!!!!!!). Plus, the tracks in Prologue have NEVER (to emphasize) been in a previous Gran Turismo game before and are all real tracks or locations. ALL of them. OK? GOOOOOD. Lets carry on.

 VIEWS

Gran Turismo and Gran Turismo 2 (two, II, too, to) both had three (3, III) car views; one (1, I) internal, one (1, I, numero uno) behind the car view and another behind the car view which was further behind the car and up a little higher (chase cam, cos it feels like you're chasing the car trying to get back in it after leaving the handbrake off).

GT3 and GT Concept only had two car views, the internal and behind car view. This upset many, maanny (to take a line from Cmdt. Lassard. What do you mean who? He's off Police Academy!) people who used the chase cam in the first two games and Polyphony Digital have since bought that third view back, in Prologue. Possibly because all the GT fans started crying and couldn't play the game anymore cos they couldn't see through their tears. Sounds genuine enough?

 CARS

As mentioned earlier GT4:P (haha, P ... - sorry, that was a bit juvenile of me :( ) has 64 driveable cars, most of them concept, classic, new, or old, Japanese cars. There are American cars in the game but no big old muscle cars (game didn't come with enough fuel supplies), European cars are included also, to remain allies with them in these troubled times.

I've listed 15 of them below but if you want to check out the whole lot, including the cars which only the AI can drive (mumble mumble stupid AI mumble why do they get to drive them and not us mumble mumble i want a cookie, spose they have eaten them all too mumble mumble not fair mumble), then click here.

TRACKS

There are five racetracks in GT4: Prologue (GT Concept also had five). Five is one less than six, but since six is an even number they should have added a sixth track to make it even. How odd... To see each of these tracks in a minisculeesque more detail, clicky this link.

Tsukuba Circuit (Japan)
- A small but very fun course. Great for quick races and excellent for drifting. Also one of the most famous Japanese circuits. Even has its own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame (probably - it seems easy enough for anyone to get one!).

New York (U.S.A.)
- Is enclosed in massive skyscraping buildings (well, not actually inside the buildings - but i didn't say that so shouldn't really be writing this disclaimer) and the detail in this level is quite amazing. Consists of a lot of 90° corners plus two very long straights. Like, they are so long that eventually you'll get to the end! Wow!

Grand Canyon (U.S.A.)
- Is the most realistic looking track in any Gran Turismo, EVER (at the time). In a first for Gran Turismo this rally track is very, very narrow (sorry Dodge Viper, you're too phat) and has a lot of very tight corners. Lots of fun when you get used to it! High premium cost for sightseeing tours off the edge of the canyon (mainly because they don't get repeat customers for obvious reasons...).

Fuji International Speedway (Japan)
- Great for high powered cars, 300km/h can be surpassed on the main straight with cars such as the Ford GT and BMW McLaren F1 GTR. A very nice circuit. Nice like a kitty, but nicer since it won't bite as hard when you annoy it enough. Cats are so mean.

Citta di Aria (Italy)
- Another first for Gran Turismo is this insanely (woOoOoOoO) narrow Italian street course. It gets so narrow in places that you could only fit about two and a quarter cars (not recommended to chop a car up into quarters though, you'll get wet when it rains) in the gap! When you race through this at high speed without touching the walls you get a great sense of achievement. Sort of like the sense of achievement you get when you win an online argument with an Ub3rgeek.
