I have seen some actual gameplay footage somewhere (can't remember where, sorry) and it was dissappointing. What I saw was racing on a closed circuit like in Motorstorm, but not as good as Motorstorm. Maybe this is ONE of the modes to play in, I don't know, but why would they show closed circuit racing when they promote it as a 'free roam' racing game?

Interesting, worth checking out!

all looks good besides the extra long lightning that sticks around for too long.

lol, who chose to use that third screenshot where the handle bar is clipping right through the gas tank...lol

as droezelke said, the gameplay footage looked terrible, with glitchy animations and a generally very unpolished looking game, environment textures and stuff looked good from what you could see (it was cam footage over at GT if you're interested) but my god the gameplay looks boring. it's like a mixture of motorstorm and pure which you'd think would be amazing, but no, it looks boring.

the whole weather thing looks cool tho.

Isn't the graphics-thing a result of having huge open worlds, instead of cramped circuits? I mean, GT5P looks amazing, but just a few feet off the track, 3D is replaced by photographs...

I, for one, am really looking forward to this one. Open world + extreme racing = awesome

Looks awesome to me. Lightning hangs around longer if there's more energy to discharge, and considering the earth has more or less been destroyed and global warming has led to extreme weather conditions... I'd expect the lightning to stick around longer.

I've also seen the gameplay videos and I think it looks pretty good. The motorbike one was slightly dull but the ATV and buggy videos seemed fun enough. The graphics obviously aren't up there with Pure and Motorstorm, and it doesn't seem to have any real stunts, but gameplay-wise I'll probably prefer it over Motorstorm at least, which I found about as interesting as peeling the skin off my face.

Then you must have seen that it's racing on a closed circuit. And I disagree that an open world always looks worse than a small level ( Far Cry 2 i.e.). It's just not as impressive as I expected, and the gameplay looked wrong.

looks promising.. let's just hope it does turn up blurry as most comasters' games on consoles

I couldn't have said it better, a shame. Codemasters has gone to crap over the last few years.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (8 Hours ago)
