GT5 Prologue: Ferrari F2007

GT5 Prologue: Ferrari F2007

Now this is a nice surprise! Sony announced that the Ferrari F2007 would be playable in US/EU version of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. And while waiting to unpack the G25 again, here are some pictures of the beast!

....mmmmmmmiiiiiiiiaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuoooooooooooooonnnnnggggg.................





Yep, this looks cool to me. The car model is, as usual, very very good. btw, did they work a bit on the lights/shadows? Looks even better as on previous pics...

amazing shots. seriously. But then it doesn't take much to see that these are bullshots to the max. Just compare to the latest batch of screenies Sony gave us. These are miles better looking.

sigh.

Still, I will be cool to race around in the F2007. I would just rather have the McLaren Mercedes. ;)
Nice race this weekend in Australia, btw. 7 cars finished out of 22. Seems the new restrictions and rules are making it abit hard on some of the teams. Not a single ferrari engine made it though the finishing line. Crazy. Bodes well for the new season, indeed.

Yep, finally the F1 races are interesting, again. Now you can see which driver has really good skills!

And these screenshots are no bullshots, they're taken of the replay or fotomodus!! Of course, during the gameplay it doesn't look like that ^^

CGI pictures which are probably photoshoped. if this was the year 2020 then i would have believed that those were ingame ,but not in 2008.

The car is looking way better and more realistic then in F1 One Championship Edition, but the environments are far less detailed and F1 CE also had way more stunning effects.

Anyway im still not very impressed by the model, it lacks texture detail and the lightning is wrong which makes the car look to plastic.

There are F1 games and mods for PC which have more realistic looking F1 models then thisone.

grrr, i know this is off topic, but i really hate how the FIA has been limiting the technology in F1...halting engine dev. for three years, mechanical rev limits /sigh. though nothing beats the thrill of hearing those v8 engines turn at 20k rpm...breathtaking

oh, about the cars looking plastic...dont know if you've ever seen the up close...but they look plastic, the body is made of carbon-fibre, shiny carbon-fibre

I have seen it and im a big F1 fan and know how the cars look like, of course this F2007 model looks very nice for a game but it could still look better and more realistic with a bit better lightning.

No im not, the environments in GT5p are not impressive, they are very empty and most of objects which are 3d in F1 CE are 2d in GT5p, i have not seen a single 3d tree in GT5p while F1 CE has only 3D trees.

Sorry some of you are to focused on this replay bullshots, the real ingame looks unimpressive, with zero blur effects, it also has non of the awesome sun or weather effects as F1 CE and the HDR in ingeme is not as impressive as in the replay mode.

When you actually play GT5p the environments look very empty and flat compared to F1 CE.

I know that Gt5p runs at the twice framerate of F1 CE and thats also the reason for it's emptynes, but looks like that some people cant admit it or deal with it.

Polyphony is known for their awesome and most impressive car models but it's also know for the lack of track detail, environments in GT games are not impressive and more empty then most of other racing games since their first game.

Because when I play a racing game, I look at the trees and the grass.

@skyform: I never said that the tracks in GT5 are awesome or super detailed, but when you say the tracks in F1 are less empty than those in GT5... then you have a false memory of the game. I was so disapointed by that game, it looked fucking sterile, and so boring. You can't compare both games!
And I saw vids of ingame from GT5, and it looks very good!
And that blur effect: I really can abstain from it. I hate it when the developpers just add blureffects en masse to get an impression of speed, and to hide the bad texture build up. The less of those effcts, the more I love it. But that's a thing of taste, I guess ^^

So I guess they really are trying to implement F1 races into GT5. I think Sony has the F1 license, so it shouldn't be too hard to make it work. Car looks amazing anyhow.

I think it was a good step. Once the drivers become used to it it'll get more interesting. Seems like in the last race the ones with more patience and driving with more caution were winning. Others pushed their luck too hard and since it's all new it caused that many brakedowns and accidents.

btw: The best they've done is removed TC. It's so much harder to get a car properly accelerating through corners without it, now the F1 is interesting again and the cars don't seem to run on rails anymore.

Indeed, my opinion ^^
