I'm still a bit sad that there won't be any safety cars or installation laps, but aside from Hot Pursuit this is becoming my number one racing game of the year. I found Split/Second and Blur to be very annoying, TDU 2 has been moved to next year, so all the more time I can play F1.

The EGO-engine 2.0 is amazing. I hope they will use it in a better way for Operation Flashpoint; Red River.

I already pre-ordered the game for PC because I want the dx11 goodies.

BTW: those were some fast reflexes at the end ;o)

Aside from being so damn brown and most likely lack of sim, looks good. Visually impressive.

WHAT?! When was that announced? (TDU) September is officially dead for me now... :(

this game should permentantly be in the wet, since it's the only time it looks really good.

Haven't you seen the Monaco video? It looks amazing.

Hey Driftwood, what were the settings when you played that lap ? I doubt anyone would turn off the ABS in that pouring rain LOL

The effects when you're behind a car(raining) were very cool, I don't recall seeing them before, looks like Codemasters perfected it a little bit as they got closer to launch. Cool vid Gamersyde ;)

This game just looks worse with every new video.

Best water-on-screen effect ever! I like that you can see the different tire tread for the rain...

nice that was a close call with the wall at the end there hahahahaha

Two weeks ago. Something about "we have a good game but we need more time to make it a great game".

I must say I did not have time to check that out, we only had an hour this morning to get the last footage of this year's Gamescom. More videos (F1 2010 and more) will come this weekend. :)

yeah, and when you turn your image clears up. Really nice touches. PGR4's rain effects finally bettered

Damn it, you missed a great opportunity to go like:

"Your comments just get worse with every new video"

Too late now... :(

Game looks great in the rain btw, but otherwise it's a bit of a mixed bag (with piss-filters et al)...

As bad as Codemasters are at physics, they always manage to get that "feeling" of racing. I hated everything about Dirt 2, but damn if it didn't kind of feel like you were actually rallying. Stuff like this is what serious console sims like Forza and GT have to improve on in the future; the immersion.
Commented on 2010-08-20 21:45:27
Weather effects are great but the game will be slightly better than average. They have not capture proper F1 realism at all.
Commented on 2010-08-20 23:59:13
That's not the purpose either. Codemasters are not in the game of making realistic sims. They take a sport and distill it down to get the important bits and make it accessible. They want it to look like as close to real F1 as possible, but let you be as good as Senna. After having played Dirt 2, I kind of see their point.

About the game

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)

    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
