Those are surprisingly high numbers considering the game is, unfortunately, half the game of the previous one.

EuroGamer seems to think a fair bit less then the others, would be interested to read that one.

They are linked.

 

It seems to be due to the cars/tracks cut down from FM4 to get it out as a launch title (26 tracks down to 14, etc). That and the DLC/monetisation of the game.

It's a shame. Not for the cars as much as they've chosen the list quite well, covering all classes but the large reduction in tracks is a no-no (especially getting rid of Nürburgring/Suzuka). Yas Marina Circuit looks sterile but Bathurst does look amazing. However, things are gonna get repetitive very quickly.

I've noticed that EuroGamer scores games less than everyone else most of the time.  I wouldn't make much out of it or any review.  You should play the game, any game, and see for yourself.

I am really interested in trying Forza Motorsport 5 and see how it stacks up to Gran Turismo 6.

Those are surprisingly high numbers considering the game is, unfortunately, half the game of the previous one.

The content is halved. The quality, however...

Gran Turismo simply imports all the car models of the previous one. In Forza, they've put an insane amount of time into every detail of the cars included. This gives for a more realistic looking game. It's gonna be fantastic for sure.

Because they are not just importing year old low-quality outdated content unlike the "other" game.
