E3: Forza 5's Nürburgring

E3: Forza 5's Nürburgring

The iconic Nürburgring will have taken its time to finally join Forza Motorsport 5 but since yesterday, it's no longer wishful thinking. It is behind the wheel of the untameable Peugeot 908 that we drove off for a single lap in 1080p/60fps.
Update: Race video added.

Its like the size of the perimeter of my wee County where I live in Ireland, the overall length anyway. :)

Nice. For me its the track that closes a little bit more the gap between reality and racing videogames. When ever I play it, specially in GT, I get multiple gaming orgasms while feeling the car physics and my driving wheel reactions to the ground. Its oh so pure.

Its the most accurate version of the ring that ive raced on in a game! Kudos to T10 for giving it away for free. Lol at the stage time comment though! Wtf? You want to see wasted stage time go and rewatch the Sony conference again lol

Been playing Rivals around the Ring non stop since yesterday...It's bloody incredible! With it being laser scanned and with F5's physics is leagues above anything else i've played before it.

Only if you stare at them. It's nowhere near as bad as GT5, which had flat, low-res shitty looking trees.
Racing games are meant to be played, not watched. When you're focusing on the track, you don't notice much of the trees. You'd probably notice how much better fully 3D trees were but I wouldn't say the foliage looks bad in this.
Also, it's a 1080p, 60fps launch game.

I just saw the gp version and track looks too broad wtf ? I hope for forza guys they give out Suzuka now for free. They got nicely shafted at launch

And then there's studios that charge money for demos and, unfortunately, there's people like you that paid for them.

Still, props to Turn 10, they did an amazing job on this game. And still they helped make Forza Horizon 2 in the time it took for Driveclub to be made. And Forza has proper physics, not that wallriding stuff.

Best look Nur of all time. I'll have to wait until Forza 6 though, that will be the true next Forza we've been waiting for a long time.

while GT5 which is a last gen game which going by the hardware it's running on it's a miracle it's running at all going by how hard the PS3 is to create a game on, 1080p60 is nothing to boast about especially with next gen hardware, and you completely contradict yourself when you said *Racing games are meant to be played, not watched*, with the last gen you could say 1080p60 but this new gen it should be pushing at least 1440p60 down sampled not 900p upscaled.

sorry if you don't like what im about to say but im gonna be honest, the ring on FM5 doesn't look bad but it's a next gen racing game so comparisons to a last gen game makes you lot look a bit desperate.

I was genuinely shocked when they said this would be free. I wonder if it's due to the microtransactions backlash

@KORNdog:

I bet Driveclub doesn't have Nürburgring.

About the game

  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Melmoth: Exactly and that's my point :) I convinced myself to play it even though its first person - for a game to do that for me, it's BIG! (9 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @alimokrane: i used to read Edge reviews in the 90's and early 2000's because their opinions very often lined up with my own. Also, reading reviews is better than "reading" scores. (12 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @alimokrane: for me it's worked well to find a site, or even better, a reviewer you often seem to agree with or have the same taste in games, and you hare some reference point. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Having played other recent horror games, they probably just decided/realized it was a superior camera for the genre. (14 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker happy as hell because boy.....was 6 a mess. Even the good parts really weren't that good at all. Still though I am slightly sad about no third person. (15 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I'm sure if Resi 7 had been exactly like 6 nobody would be happy. It seems Capcom now looked at modern horror games and also brought back some Resi stuff. If I was a fan of this franchise I would be (17 minutes ago)

    asdfg @Sdarts: Agree, nice atmosphere and graphics looks solid. So nice to see a RE that doesn't look like a shitty action B movie. (24 minutes ago)
