Which License test was most annoying to you?

16 replies 34 views Edited Dec 31, 2010

So, I just got a PS3 and GT5 for Christmas. My wife's crazy, but I'm not going to complain. It's been QUITE some time since I've played a GT game and really haven't touched GT4 for years (and never played silly Prologue). Time to get back into the AWESOME that is Gran Turismo! I don't have all of my licenses yet, I just got iA last night. And though there's some Silvers and Golds in there, they are all at Bronze.

But I'm curious, which License test did you find most annoying? Currently, I'm going to say iC-10 was the most aggrivating for me. There might be an S test that urks my twinky, but I'm guessing iC-10 is going to be hard to top.

The final test of the IA-3 ( I think that's the name). The one where you had to do two laps, and then pass at least seven cars without running off the track, or bumping any of the other cars too hard. After about an hour and a half, I barely passed it. I then said "no more!".

This game takes time to learn and get good at - did you consider that intially when your purchased it?

Yes, you can play with them. Smiley Wink

S-8, I believe.  It is the overtaking one at the track with all of the slaloming turns and the ferris wheel.  Getting into Turn 1 and overtaking three cars without getting DQ'ed took forever to consistently get down.  And the whole race is pretty much just a series of nasty slide jobs.  It was the only one I didn't have silver or gold on for the longest time.  Finally got silver the other day.  Probably won't ever touch it again.

"traded in because they forgot to add fun.."

LOL....f-a-i-l. 

Any of the licenses that require you to race with the restrictions of limited vehicle contact and the belligerent AI drivers on the same track.  I cannot understand why it's my fault when another driver side-punts me off the track... 

Overall, I really like the way they implemented the license tests in this version of GT.  It's great having the option to do them whenever, rather than requiring you to complete them in order to race.

That's my biggest pet peeve of license tests.  If a guy hits me after I've already cleared him, then I get DQ'ed?

Especially when I was on S-8 (the one lap, finish 5th for bronze, 2nd for silver, 1st for gold at Suzuka).  I forced (not slammed) one one the cars running third or fourth into the sand trap coming off the second of two consecutive 90-degree right-handers.  He slid through the sand sideways, came back out onto the track and his nose hit behind my driver's side rear wheel. I got DQ'ed.  It would have put me in third with more than half the lap to go.  Hands down, it was my best run and more than likely would have led to gold.

Unless for some reason you thought they were necessary and did the first two classes right off the bat just to get them out of the way only to find out later it was a completely uneccessary way to spend your first half hour in GT5....
