A coop championship in F1 is the dream come true. It may be Arcade(compared to some mods on rFactor or Live 4 speed) but it plays great and yet it's hard to master the cars to the point where you're doing your best times on the track. Despite being arcade or not it's a very enjoyable game and very competitive to play.

Go troll somewhere else, please ;)

What is arcade? To ride max out u got to tweak car setup, hit te perfect brake points, take the ideal line not to mention the strategy in races like saving fuel, increasing grip along the way, brake and tire temperatures etc:)
I think u suck at the game for such a comment...

on topic: So much improvements, day one for me!

Cannot wait for this, the perfect stop gap before Forza 4.

This is an arcade game, having to "tune" to get good times does not make it any more of a simulator. In a simulator, tuning is how accurate those changes are on the track, what braking is actually like, and so on for the other things you mentioned.

With that said, this game is looking pretty good. I might give it a try.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that's sorta like turning up the "digital vibrance" setting in the Nvidia control panel. Without HDR we're just seeing more saturated colors. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Trust me though, the phone camera photos are pretty representatitve of how they look here. (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yeah my bad. But i fixed it: [url] (11 Hours ago)
