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.

    nostradamus @Sdarts: good god, its not an awful update, but some of it bothers me . the way the animation is speed up on the jumps, the updated collor pallete, even the "take" on small things like the gameover (1 minute ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: It's hard to judge, we need to wait for official screenshots or video. Only way we will be able to tell. Though I'm sure Nintendo doesn't want comparisons to be made. (34 minutes ago)
