Gran Turismo 5
Gran Turismo 5, also known as simply GT5, is a simulated racing game in a series exclusive to the PlayStation, and began with Gran Turismo on the PlayStation One. Players can select from 31 different locations on 81 different tracks, and race in a total of 1,083 different cars. Different playable modes include a Career mode, World Rally Championship, Nascar, Super GT, karting, as well as online multiplayer, which the servers were closed down on May 31 2014. The game also features Stereoscopic 3D resolution.
Gran Turismo 5 is one of the best-selling titles in the PlayStation 3 library, and met with positive reviews with an average score of 86%, praised for the amount of detail in the graphics as well as gameplay, number of cars and tracks available, and its driving physics.
This game would have received a 4-star rating for the challenge and amount of time required to reach 100%. Unfortunately, on May 31 2014, almost four years after its release, the servers were closed down for Gran Turismo 5. There are 2 online trophies, Proud Owner and Course Designer which, though were easy to unlock, can no longer be collected. Therefore, the Platinum for this game is Not Obtainable.
The 2 online trophies can no longer be unlocked, marking the Platinum for this game Not Obtainable. However, if you still wish to collect the remaining 56 offline trophies, then read on.
We recommend going for the Penniless trophy first, which requires you to spend every credit you have. At the start of the game, if you buy a Eunos Roadster J-Limited '91 from the Dealership and add a Sports ECU from the Tuning Shop, you will spend all your credits and unlock the trophy. In addition, there are a few other trophies you can easily unlock from the start, such as Picture Exclusive, Portraitist, and Driving Music, if you wish.
Next, you can start some actual racing. Begin your career by going through the A-Spec and B-Spec, including the Special Events and Licenses as they unlock through your career. Save your money when you can, until you unlock the Multi-Millionaire trophy by reaching 10 million credits.
Once you have the Multi-Millionaire trophy, you can start buying better cars and work towards the Gold Standard trophy, which requires a gold in every race event, license test, and special event. This is the most challenging and time-consuming trophy in the game, though you will probably unlock several other trophies along the way.
After that, it's simply a matter of mopping-up anything you're still missing. Check out the Gran Turismo 5 trophy guide links under our Links tab for specific details to what you need.
