If this is what it will look like while actually driving, then Crytek will have to produce something incredible to match the graphics. This is nothing short of amazing.

it looks ace...although I wouldnt go as far as the above statement...the landscapes in crysis look better than what was shown there

Volumetric light and smoke/dirt plus soft body cloth & deformation engines equal
physics/tech euphoria...........

Did you guys see that? The ground deformed with grooves when the cars drove over it..
FINALLY a game other than Sega Rally (the new one) has that :D
I'm buyin it just for that, i dont care, im a sucker for ground deformation in rally games. I bought Sega Rally for that too, and surprisingly, i loved it :)

I meant Crysis 2 on consoles

@Baleur: FlatOut Ultimate Carnage also had terrain deformation. Not as impressive as Sega Rally's (no water - ground interplay), but it was pretty impressive nonetheless, considering the amount of debree you can kick around on the track.

On a different note: I've been visiting this site for several years (well into the xboxyde days), but I'm only registering now on the forums, so HELLO EVERYONE!

Hello! Welcome to Pwnersyde!

:o)

Nah, good site this!

ONTOPIC! I love Dirt and Grid, so this is a no brainer, but god it looks good! they really have got their shit together. Like Turn 10 have finally realised that driving games have to look great as well as play great, this looks to have cracked that.

All the previews so far point to a far better control system too (to stop fuckers whinging about how it feels like your pivoting on a central point, blah blah blah, like they've ever driven a fucking rally car...). Sorry.

I really hope that's true, cause I would love to pick this up if that's the case. Otherwise I'll have to pass on it like a lot of people did for the first Dirt. All the "whining" was justified imo and you didn't need to have driven a real rally car to know that. You just had to have played other racing games like Rallysport Challenge, Sega Rally, or many more that controlled and felt much, much better than Dirt did.

omg! please get the handling right please get the handling right please get the handling right.

I'm sorry but Dirt 1 controlled like an iphone game.

If it controls like Colin McCrae 2 on the PSX, albeit with some current gen tech behind it, then I'm there. That's the key for me. The cars must have weight. You must feel on edge everytime you fly over a jump or bump in the road in case the car decides to want to go sideways and you've to fight to keep it steady on the road. McCrae 2 had it nailed.

Speaking about how this game looks, though; someone tell me that this is actual in-game. I've been confused lately. First F3 and now this. They both look too good to be true, although F3 will for sure look how it does. I just never expected either, and this again looks so good that it could be CGI.

Maybe it's the PC version but yeah that's probably realtime rendering.

First one was fun. Don't know if I'll have time to play this one though unfortunately.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Nor, I but it is a nice solution in VR when there's no hand tracking built in from the ground up. I found it adds to the tension too when you struggle to keep yourself calm for a headshot. (33 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I wish people would just go with what they feel. If a game looks awesome to you, and it makes you look forward to playing it, then just fucking buy the thing and enjoy stop listing to prats on the net (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't like the "aim where you look" VR controls but I guess that's better than aiming with an analog stick. (36 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: indicative of modern internet review culture, sadly. (36 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Pro version smooths out nasty jaggies and shimmering at distances and off to the side where the standard uses foviated rendering. (37 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I've seen Pro vs standard PS4 comparison, and whilst you really need to see it in the headset, the difference was very noticeable even on a compressed Youtube video. (38 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @alimokrane: You found the one negative review out of 100 and it fits your expectations so let's go with that? (39 minutes ago)
