its rather awesome how good a PC Only racer by good devs can look. But it will need a top pc to run i'll bet.

I have the multiplayer beta, and i can say it run's decent on old hardware. But to get the quality up to par with the screenshots you need a top pc

Why is it, no other racer has the shaders of GT5. ffs. They all look plastic in every other racing game.

Sort it out.

BTW great game though, loving the beta.

Imagine if FM4 or GT5 would be for PC only...

Auto-Vista cars actually on track ftw...

why does no other racing games have backgrounds as shitty as GT5? maybe because of that, who knows.

These shaders @ 60fps look better Imo, but its all in the eye of the beholder, so no reason to argue,

lol m8, no reason to argue, but seriously GT5 is 60fps. Has better shaders and smoke fx, not to mention lighting then any other racer of any gen. Don't get me wrong i love the look of this and even the previous games. I do agree with some trees, background stuff could have been alot better. But the japanese are not exactly known for environments, ask final fantasy, as plain as day. Not sure they know what bumpmapping is.

Don't forget the worst, most eye jarring shadows in a game and horrible pixelizing results in the admittedly good smoke/water spray. This looks sharp though...

why are people comparing this to GT5/Forza 4, we all know the PC has the best racing sims utilising the best graphics why go on about GT5's strongest point its shaders when everything else is crap while PC games dont suffer these flaws, but most of all this game isnt even a sim so why should shaders ect matter, its an arcade racer and arcade racers are all about speed and pretty graphics wizzing past in a rimmer shaped blur.
