    Try some of the seasonal events. They give more money and XP and will help you get into the game quicker than the grind of A-spec. Though you may need to do a little bit of A-spec to get a good vehicle for a seasonal event.
    This, IMO, is one of the best things about GT and for me, GT5 made things too easy.

    I loved the structure / balance of the earlier games, where you'd spend a long time with a single car, buying the cheapest upgrades, a little at a time to improve your chances as the Sunday / Clubman cups etc. progressed.

    That connection with a single car(s) was missing from GT5, for me. There we're a few cars I stuck with and eventually Race Modified but I do miss the grind and eventual feeling of actually having earned a new car, for the cycle to begin again.

    Inclined to agree with Ron_Justice there - I got some special code version that gave me 100,000 credits, an NSX race spec and an Audi R8 LM (which I can't even sell, or delete from the game). A far cry from the 20,000 CR you got in previous GT games.

    Part of the fun (for me) is to start with a banger, then slowly work your way up to the faster cars. Here, you're showered with cars left right and centre, and cash too now with the Seasonals. The one grind I really dislike though is the insane number of points to unlock later races (the 24h Le Mans I would never finish but at least would like to have a go at it, but it takes forever to get there by collecting XP).

    Hope they address this in GT6 and structure the progression better - even if they'd just copy GT1/2's single player I'd be satisfied already.

    And above all else, switch the controls so that accelerate and brake are on the triggers.

    Just picked this up for 4 at CEX. Currently installing the updates and the game to the HDD (8GB install). I'm at 90 minutes and counting!!

    I drive an automatic 'cause I'm too cool to change gears.

    It is rediculous. Game wasn't worth the wait for me.

    Well a lot of other people liked it if that helps.

    My spelling of rediculous is ridiculous.

    Cool. For 4 it can't be that bad. Just want to whizz around 1080p. I notice the box says 3D as well...I have a 3D TV, I wonder what that's like...

    It's OK, not something you'd want to use a lot as you lose a lot of detail. But I still dabble with it in 3D occasionally.

    Game also runs a lot better at 720p than the not really 1080p setting (1280x1080).

    Almost at 2 hours and I haven't heard the sound of one engine.

    Don't worry, plenty of grind to come.

    (At least with all the patches it's no-where near as bad as the game was at launch)

    @PhoenixFlames

    Why didn't you wait for GT6?

    @SYS64738 I don't pay out 40 for games these days and I'm not too fussed about driving games but for 4 what the hell?

    Fair enough. And then there's still the risk of #6 not running as smooth as 5. I'm still a bit worried about its performance given the way the demo ran (i.e. like a dog).
