Well, the track doesn't look better than in Forza 2. Really not ground braking if you considder that SHIFT only runs at 30FPS.

At least he knows what racing is about. I didn't feel like I was back in school. I think this is a brilliant trailer. I hope this feature will be in the game for each track.

We should be getting a demo soon. And the track looks a lot better than Forza 2's rendition. I don't know why people want to dislike this game. With the studio thats behind it, there's a good chance it could be a great game.

I agree, Forza 2 was clean as hell, but as soon as the tarmac ends it's a dull wasteland, the surroundings were totally barren... this one seems to have a bit of life in it.

After all the recent gameplay videos I've lost a lot of hope for this game being very good. That one vid with the all the assists turned off still looked like sliding arcade crap to me. But without playing the game in person it's always a little up in the air.

The gfx are really good but only 30fps hurts the gameplay, especially if people are wanting to play it on "sim" mode, if that even really is an option.

Since when did racing games start warranting a Mild Violence descriptor?

Well, the ESRB probably decided that ramming your car in another on purpose can be considered violent. Either that or there will some sort of story mode thing with fights in them.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
