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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker abilities, graphics and there's actually an "oomph" to these weapons, unlike Paladins. (3 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I'm impressed by how many interesting characters there actually are here. If I compare this to Paladins I really only like two or three characters there. Not to mention the much better level design (4 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker But this for me seems to be the game that I want to get better at and hopefully get better too. It's going well against medium cpu (51 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Now since I'm a newbie to the game I've been playing against medium cpu with other players, so chances are when I go against actual people I will get my ass beaten (52 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Been playing Overwatch all morning and I'm quite enjoying it. Really digging a lot of the characters too. Awesome designs. (59 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Shinobi 3 on the megadrive is the best one imo. Hard as all hell, but great controls and very fun to play. (4 Hours ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti Super Shinobi on Mega Drive was awesome, gameplay and also music (Yuzo Koshiro). AND it had Batman and Spider-Man, at least in the japanese version, if I recall correctly :) (4 Hours ago)
