Why is it so bright?

I honestly gotta say that I'm pretty dissappointed with these shots... simbin really convinced me in the past that they got a good team to create nice games. both graphics and gameplay. but they got some time to prove this is another great game.

it looks like what GRiD (aka TOCA) should have been like.

What are you on about? These shots look great, and easily on par with GRID. And way, way better than forza has ever looked.

If you look back at the earlier Simbin games, one have to admit this is huge leap forward graphics wise.

Can't wait to see how this turns out...

Because it's not Unreal Engine, and instead tries to replicate actual light rather than intense brown :O!

The cars (tires) look like it's hardly touching the pavement. This used to be the problem with past racing game (circa 1995) but to still see it today. Even NFS get this right. And look at the shadow underneath the Aston Martin in pic #2. Yikes! The focus in all the pictures look completely wrong (unless you use something like a lensbaby, which I'm sure wasn't intended).

@myke6699: That's not a shadow underneath the aston martin... it's a front splitter. The shadow is to the right of the car on the pic.

I agree with you: in the last pic, you can actually see 1 car float above the ground and 1 car that is like IN the ground. Oh, and the people saying it looked better on PC should play it again and then you will see that the graphics are way better now. But that last screenshot reallty concerns me. Why did they release such a messed up screenshot?

First two shots are great (i think), The last shot looks good, except for the fact that the two white cars don't have tires, and the first one doesn't have shadow :s
If they fix that I'm pretty happy bout the gfx. But most people will buy it for the physics/handling anyway.

Oooh nice!!

I cant wait for this game.. it looks really gritty, dirty and realistic allready.. i really want to see this in motion before i can completely judge it, but you just know this is going to be so much better then any race game on the consoles when it comes to realism and physics.
Commented on 2008-07-16 20:21:06
Oh yeah, i dont know where you guys see a car's tires not touching the ground, but in the last pic the ride height difference is because of the physics.

It seems to me that the car that is "in the ground" is braking before the corner, lowering the car a bit... the BMW that goes first in the corner is what im on about.

Anyways.. no worries, this is simbim we're talking about.

God, I still can't believe how Codemasters have screwed us over on that one...horrible!

This game isn't looking all that sharp as of yet, but I don't think this will be a high roller in terms of visuals anyway looking at the developers previous efforts. Interested in seeing what this will offer though, apparently the PC versions (equivalents) are fantastic simulators.

But if you look off the side of the front splitter and the way the image of the car in relation to the pavement. It's just bad gfx. And in the last pic, no matter how you explain it- the three cars upfront look either floating in the air or slightly buried in the road. Come on guys, this is suppose to be a realistic sim. As much as I appreciate a good physics, I still need to be entertained by a good replays.
I hope that other wheel besides the MS wireless will be supported (although this has to be done by MS). If not, then this is clearly a much compromised product.

It's about time!

I am not sure but, I think the last picture is from GTR Evolution, another game from Simbin.
Commented on 2008-07-16 21:04:06
Someone told me that this game is a combination of both Race07 and GTR2.

bright? adjust your monitor.

Looks pretty nice, be interesting to see what variety of cars is in there.

Grid is awesome on the 360 btw

Buahahaha on the last picture the BMW's are missing the tires. Not only that, but seems like they dont model the entire rim, only the outside design.

The graphics look very PC racer like which really isnt a good thing

LOL

That car is missing tires. Good catch.

@myke6699: Wasn't saying anything about the graphics. Was just explaining that a splitter is not a shadow. :P

I know, this isn't going to win ANY awards in graphics, and let's just leave it at that. Sad really, because they have a standard platform.

OH YEAH!!! The included my favorite AstonMartin DBR9!!!

You all can say a lot of things, BUT THIS WILL BE THE BEST CONSOLE AUTOSIM.

Real carz, real tracks, real fisics - thats all I need from that game

I wish they would bring it to PS3 or make the G25 work with the Xbox 360.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I haven't enjoyed it much at all tbh (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If people were looking for a fresh experience it wouldn't be TitanFall 2. That's their whole problem. I don't think TitanFall 2 would have been "huge" in the Spring. (32 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I still don't get why people have a problem with cosmetic loot boxes. (34 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts released alongside BF and CoD games. Though even then I would still save it for a year without a new BF, so it would only go against CoD. (46 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts They forgot TF1 didn't make a big splash after launch, but if TF2 was released like I said, it would most likely been a huge hit and then the franchise would have been known enough for a TF3 to be (47 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts had already played BF1 and CoD:IW/MW for hundreds of hours and were looking for a new fresh experience. Really, really horrible decision to launch it alongside BF1 and CoD, plus in the busiest period. (49 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It might have to do with that momentum I mentioned earlier. When I think of TF2, I can't even imagine how sussceful it would be if launched in March, April or May. Would also get all the players who (50 minutes ago)
