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?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (8 Hours ago)
