Looks like it's going to be a great racer. Can't wait!!

Nice, as long as they solidify the framerate and kill some of that aliasing from the trailer, this may just be one to watch...

So clean!

Perfect!! \o/

I didn´t enjoy the last one, but this next appears to be much better.

very very nice, is this the one on pc as well or was the pc getting something different?

Looks way too good for NFS.

Last image looks like Waterloo in London.

Talk about inconsistency. Pic 3 looks amazing whereas the rest looks good, but not great. Though it's not unusual I guess, with just the right angle, car and lighting you could even get a nice looking screen of Forza2...

I really like to see some gameplay soon. This looks stunning graphics wise.

the NFS games are actually a lot of fun most of the time.

It is, the Imax sign is there on the building =)

Awesome, looks stunning, finally a good looking racing game with natural colours and not some stupid colour filters, i really hope it's not too arcade, can't wait.
Commented on 2009-04-27 21:33:01
Jesus! Sterile, this is not!

So Awesome.

Looking this, i have interest by first time in a NFS title.
Commented on 2009-04-27 21:35:02
I'm really looking forward to this. Just hope that you can do some nice custom paint jobs instead of all the professional racing crap that they've been showing with ugly sponsor decals all over these beautiful cars.

I'm also curious, since they're going the sim route again, will the cars be able to flip like they can in NFS:Prostreet? I hope so, but I doubt it.

Yes it is, the big building being the BFI IMAX cinema...

If they can get the physics right = win.
Commented on 2009-04-27 22:47:40
I'm really excited for this one. Hope it turns out well.

There was also footage running in the background from a interview put up on GameTrailers today, framerate seemed perfectly smooth.

I must say, this game is looking very good indeed and its not just the graphics. The gameplay looks alot of fun, its has a nice balance of Arcade/simulation but learning a little more towards simulation. Reminds me of PGR2 (The best PGR of them all) which can only be a very good thing.

Oh and how awesome are those engine sounds, that Zonda sounds almost perfect.

Yes, they're bullshots. No console has that level of anti-aliasing.

Although it can be a bit deceiving watching a small, low quality vid like that, it does look pretty awsome. I'm loving the motion blur and depth of field effects!
Commented on 2009-04-28 02:24:20
wow, GRID still look amazing, but this takes it to a new level.
Commented on 2009-04-28 03:09:00
Uhhhh those videos... please tell me that the motion blur inside the car is a glitch. Why would driving fast cause me to not be able to see the tachometer o_o
Commented on 2009-04-28 03:34:43
hm, looking good but I'm still sceptical. They'd have to nail the game play just right. Having no TC (as in these videos) in a racer that isn't a sim doesn't make any sense. I'll need a demo to decide whenever it's worth my money.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
