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?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
