Forza 2: The images menace

Forza 2: The images menace

New night, new Forza 2 Xbox Live session this time with the very brutish Sebull and the ever awesome (haha, right) Mirik of Xboxworld.nl. As you can see it was more like playing bumper cars than proper racing, but it still was a lot of fun. Also note how mean Chespace was with us :D

Very nice!!

Blim or anyone else that played the game and saw the online options... are ther required pitstops?

I see the you can turn the option "fuel and tires" off or on ,so is it safe to assume that you will actually need to do a pitstop on longer races?

Cheers for the constant updates... great pics.

What happened to this game?

I mean, the car models look great, but the environments suck? Is this like a demo? and not the final game?

Official screenshots released look so much better? Or is it just these screenshots?

Am i the only guy who thinks this?

Nice

/prepares for the graphical debate

I dont think people will be saying the same things when there playing like many games that release screenshots never like that when you play. I wish you could release videos because it would be so much better then releasing images because screenshots dont do game justice from videos we seen.

Nice works on screenshots though cheers.

There are plenty of videos about by now, having watched quite a few full races, both with real gameplay and in replay mode I'm convinced that the game looks amazing. I couldn't give a damn how bad any screenshots look from here on.

If you doubt the graphics of this game then watch this:

Yes, I would also like to see some screenies showing the damage stuff in Forza2.
What is possible? Can you completely wreck your car? Or is it limited to some scratches , broken windshields, and losing your spoiler??

lol, you must have missed the other million news about Forza 2 then. I'm getting tired of these posts, guess others feel the same cause noone's trying to convince you, that the game's gonna be amazing when it hits the stores. I won't either.

On a picture related note: I like the dimm lightning on the first and last track a lot (they are the same, aren't they?). Does the weather change? How many weathers are there you can choose from? Sorry for the dumb question, but never read anything about that.

lol looks like quite a bit of dirty racing was going down :)

Viginti its more a case of the people that already have their minds made up to buy the game don't care to contradict negative comments anymore. We'll just play and have fun and let people say what they want :D

There seems to finally be some nice replay angles on that track

Wow.......suddenly GTHD's track doesn't look that pathetic.......

http://images.xboxyde.com/gallery/public/5351/847_...

Unbelievable turn of events with this game, I honestly wasn't expecting any sort of problems with environments, they range from passable to simply awful, wow.

Have you never seen Nurburgring?

http://www.pitreport.nl/gallery/albums/Modena-Moto...

http://photosnurb4.site.voila.fr/nurburgring24h/im...

The track is flat and grey on the entire track so its uneventful or in other words it makes road textures look horrible because there isn't really to much to the texture. Comparing the track texture between Sebring and Nurburgring and you will see how an eventful tack(many bumps/cracks) makes for a better looking texture. BTW who in there right mind complains about road textures? You act like your going to sit there look at it all day when in reality your going by every square inch at 130+ mph.

Well, trust me. When it comes to track environment, GTHD got owned. Forza 2 has fantastic track environment. For those who don't know I played Forza 2 a months ago... If you don't believe me, go to TeamXbox Forum and search for post posted by team56th.

Edit: This shot particulary shows how Nur on Forza 2 looks. Looks great don't you think. But remember that it's even better when you play it :)

Edit 2: Those shots looks cool overall! Great job Blim!
