At least these pics are not Photomode, and they don't look washed out like Forza 3.

You really hate Forza that much eh? I mean, pic 1 and 2 are clearly in "pohoto mode". Also the colors look way more crapped up in these shots than they do in Forza 3, but hell...i guess that the fan boy glasses makes up for the difference :)

Does this HugaMuga kid honestly think Shift will look better than Forza 3??? Yes, Forza 3 takes it's pics from photomode, just like GT5 and tons of other racers do to showcase car models. It's common practice.

Shift looks good, but it will have many shortcoming compared to Forza or GT games.

I really find it funny how often the first comment on a shift article is always comparing the game to forza. These sony fanboys really have an amazing passion for trying to put down Forza. It is becoming the biggest joke on this entire site.

The environments easily look better than in Forza 3. Just don't expect the die hard Forza fans to admit it.

Having said that, this game still has a lot to prove in terms of gameplay. Especially after the last few crapjobs.

Edit: I mean, just look at it:

These aren't exactly HD shots why are they in such a low resolution?

Yes they do look better however Forza is more about AI and Physics then Graphics.

look how boring and blurred the environments in pic 1 are. forza looks better in all ways and if you look at these screens in hd resolution they look a lot more worse than forza.

- GT5 is not even released

- GT5 Prologue, dose NOT have photo mode like Forza 3 or Motorstorm 2.

- Photomode in Forza make the game look way better, there no console game that has that hight anti aliasing.

Thats not blur, thats Motion effect. Forza 3 uses photo mode that filters to adjust the picture so it will look better then the real gameplay.

Maybe because they already released these shots in high res. more than a month ago :P

Anyway game looks great, as do F3/GT5(p)/Dirt2 and Split second, so great times ahead.......................................at least for me ;)

Uh, aside from the cockpits, I don't see *anything* in this game looking any better than FM3, and that may just be because we haven't seen that many direct-feed cockpit shots from FM3. Seriously, how can this:

http://www.nfsplanet.com/pic.php?./img/nfsshift/sc...

Look better than FM3? That car model looks hideous in terms of detail and so other things like reflections as a result, and let's not mention textures....I wish people here would try to explain how X thing looks better than Y. Simple concept really.

At least this racer has a relatively full interior. Although the physics look like GRID (not good).
Commented on 2009-08-16 00:45:12
Hmmm, I thought GRIDs physics felt good for what they were going for( judging from the demo)- you can FEEL the grip of the tires. Also, at least the collisions were good( *cough* GT * cough*).

This NFS can be really good. Don't know why but when I watch videos from Shift it reminds me a bit GRiD. And after reading some interviews with developers, for me Shift is becoming that, what GRiD should have been (more sim and realistic but still packed up with action). IMO GRiD was nothing special and highly overrated (car handling was shit, no feel of car control). Only really great thing was damage model (but still not perfect).

@fablo
Maybe there are as many uncharted 2 bashers, I just find it odd how seldom i notice it. Maybe it's because there are less games to compare it to, whereas Forza is compared to every racing game under the sun.

I own both systems and just get really tired of ppl siding with one console. Seems mind blowingly ignorant to me but oh well...
