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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (19 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (20 Hours ago)
