Anything with monster trucks is bound to be awesome.

lol, the way he said monster truck realy made me laugh.

But as I said in an earlier topic about MS 2: The game actually does way more than the first and has a shitload a objects everywhere. It's that much more complex that I don't ever expect it to looks as polished and clean as the first one and people should stop comparing both...

Physics look crap, but pre-alpha so it can get fixed easily. Lighting look beautiful.

Just need to bring the gameplay up, put the graphics better than MS1 and they're good to go.

That looked extremely early.

Has a lot of potential. Hopefully they'll get the physics right. I see they added in explosion effects to the crashes now.

Don't know why they saw fit to hype the water effects. They were not impressive. And I love how the dev has to lie about the percent complete. No way it's only 40% done and coming out this Fall. Unless of course, we're looking at another 2009 title...

looks very nice graphically

yeah somehow the visuals look quite a bit worse than the first. I like the monster trucks though, and i'll for sure want to play this when it comes out.

i think im the only one who think the visuals look better. but i think its more to do with the setting then anything. jungle environment alows for far more detail and makes for a more interesting backdrop then rocks and sand. but even the motion blur, textures and general smoothness of everything looks better to me. only thing i didnt like from the gamplay footage at least was the physics. the water could use some more surface reaction diversity tho. because atm it kinda ripple likes somones skipping stones across a pond, not like a cars plowing through it.

doesn't look too good at all. And wtf is "Interactive water"? lol that water looked really bad! the water in GTA4 is more "interactive" in waves and reacting to objects, and looks a whole lot better.

Does racing in a Hawaiian looking environment feel gimmicky to anyone else? The last one seemed more realistic in it's settings, or perhaps I am wrong on this one

Stunning physics, its totally unprecedented. Vegetation interaction is just amazing. Ofcourse visuals are a little down from MS1, but its only 40% complete yet, and also that its much more physics filled and colourful. The grass is stunning, as the first one had sprites for grass...

Yeah, I totally agree with Farooq. Looks very cool, and all the possibilities for crashes are amazing. Why does everybody yawn about the grfx? Hey, it's a pre-alpha, at 40%... That's not even half developped (when my mathematic skills doen't fail ^^) I loved the first MS, and I believe this one will rock even more!

OT: CODEMASTERS ACQUIRED F1-LICENSE!!! CM will release a multiplatform title 2009!!! For me the news of the YEAR!!! Awesome!
At last on Xbox 360 as well ... *headbang*
Commented on 2008-05-09 13:39:56
This game is gonna rock!!

Stunning physics,
did you watch the same video as me? :|

the physics were awful but seeing as it is on 40% complete iam pretty sure they will fix it

Remember guys. Motorstorm is not JUST a game... It's a way of life.
Commented on 2008-05-09 22:56:55
That's why they put that fake 40% tag on the video. So some of you guys use it as an excuse for anything that looks bad in the video. The physics are NOT going to change much at all in these last few months before release.

At this point in development the game is usually done as far as content and physics. These last few months are mostly for balancing, adding in some minor graphical effects, stablizing framerate and AI, etc.

changing the physics at this point would be a peice of piss, the only thing wrong with it is the vehicles weight, change an option in their game editor and voila, its good to go. its not like what they have now is set in stone and cant be greatly altered in the 6-7 months they have left. yes they may have majority of the content created and in the game, but that's a whole world appart from it being nearly finished.

Right now its more of a tech demo. Physics IS unprecedented and that's a given. How? you say, still demands more time but vehicle deformations, vegetation interaction and deformation and near the end of the presentation, if you see how the terrain got deformed in mud by a monster truck in the Motorstorm 1 fashion... its obvious its nowhere to be found in any of the other racing games. Yes, refinements in every department will be happening in the same way as they did with Motorstorm 1 as it neared release. How lava is going to burn vehicles will definitely be entirely different story...
