Gran Turismo 7 received the lowest player rating of any Sony project on Metacritic. At the time of publication of the news, the PS5 version has 2.5/10 points.
The reason was the controversial monetization system, which was heavily criticized by players and journalists. In addition, some cars in Gran Turismo 7 cost eight times as much as in the previous Gran Turismo Sport game when purchased with real money.
The vast majority of negative feedback was posted after March 17, when the developers released a controversial patch that reduced race rewards, making it harder to unlock new cars.
Critics rated Gran Turismo 7 87 out of 100, making the racing sim one of the highest-rated games of 2022. However, it is worth noting that the reviews appeared even before the release of the patch.
