NOOOO!! Delayed! :(

Yes it is sim and the game has potential. From these screens game looks awful... hope it won't end up like Ferrari Challenge Trofeo.

If this turn outs to be like their PC games, it's going to be the definitive sim on consoles. GT:s and Forzas aren't even close when it comes to simulation. Waiting for this very much indeed. Just hope that MS would allow to use any thirdparty wheel. Their own offering is only passable.

Looks awesome. I'm glad it's delayed for two reasons: it will come out a better game, and there are already too many releasing in the next few months.

Actually it looks better than I expected. Simbin has just released GTR Evolution for PC and the graphics are really outdated because they are still using the same old engine. Hopefully they will apply some AA because that's really lacking in those screens.

There isnt a single game from Simbin that isnt a 100% ultra-hardcore 1-mistake-and-your-toast simulation racer :P

True, compared to the PC offerings this is slightly better, not a whole lot though. I expect this will be a full sim, but I hope it's a fun game.

I know this is a hardcore sim and all, but this game looks horrible. There's just no excuse for a game this time around to look this bad.

On another note, is this game even going to be worth playing without some support for 3rd party steering wheels? I'm no expert on this, but I've read up on some worried fans about the aledged crappy 360 steering wheel and the lack of support for good ones (G25 etc).
Commented on 2008-09-15 20:35:34
Would be better if the game would look at least as good as GTR Evolution.

I sold the 360 wheel because it's crap compared to G25 and im not willing to buy it again just because of this game, so i will pass.

MS is really stupid not to support other wheels.

The new porsche wheel plus this game equals winnage!

This looks WAY better than that. This one has reflections on the cars, shadow mapping (shows up on the dashboard in the Race Pro shots). It's just that this doesn't compare well to any other console racer out right now.

Like with every other SimBin racing simulators, once I start feeling the car in my hands the least thing I worry about are the graphics.

Keep up the good gameplay!

thanks, i looked it up, a pal of mine really wants a proper racing sim for his 360, something on par with GT5P.

This game is set to be good, but GT5P isn't the game to compare it with.
First and foremost, GT5P isn't even a real game and it is certainly not a sim (simulator). It is as arcade:ish as PGR4 or Forza2.

No offence, just giving you the facts.

Did you really just say Forza Motorsport 2 is Arcadish and is comparable to PGR and GT5P? You must be out of your mind.

Forza is the most realistic console racing game you can buy as of right now. It uses the most advanced physics and advance AI in a racing game currently available.
Commented on 2008-09-16 07:10:36
Comparing Forza2 and GT5:P to PGR4 is simply stupid.
Forza2 most realistic console racing game? No. It's something like GT, semi-simulator (in Forza they even didn't make an in-car view, I cannot even roll over my car in both lol). Even PS2 and Xbox has a looot more more realistic game (Richard Burns Rally) and PS3 has one of the best F1 simulators ever (and a bit forgotten and underrated one) Formula One: Championship Edition (getting best times with everything off is hardcore, not mention doing this when it rains, AI is awesome, and they made really great graphic).

Sorry to disagree but Sonys last attempt was a disaster imo. F1 cars do not feel like driving on ice. how do I know? Had the pleasure to drive the JORDAN, EJ11 last year in France on the Circuit du Var in Le Luc. It was a birthday present from my wife. Not as expensive as you might think, you can check it out here: http://www.formula-event.com/html/startindex.html

Really looking forwad to Codmasters F1 game, the masters of the cockpit view!

Maybe (I never had the opportunity to sit in F1 car) but imo the game isn't disaster:p, Formula 1 for PS3 (compering to other F1 games) is great and I had never felt like I'm on ice, even on when there was rain I never felt like that (imo and not only my, it is still simulator, but everyone can have his own opinion).

Oh, and got one question then:), You were in F1 car, so what can You say about F1 Ferrari in GT5: Prologue? (If You played the game of course)

I must disagree to this:p new masters of the cockpit view = Polyphony Digital:)
Commented on 2008-09-16 14:43:46
funny enough the disappointment of the F1 game made me sell the ps3 again. no rumble and no proper triggers just didnt feel right either. and before i buy a wheel, i rather take out my Opel GT (Saturn Sky Redline in the US) with 315 bhp, beats any video game ;)

you are right, every1 can have his opinion but if you would have driven a real F1 car, you'd also have a differnt one :)

We will see in the future :)

Real life had also best audio/graphic/control etc., oh and no framedrops;)
