Holy crap you guys are awesome. 1080p and 60fps, try and get videos like this anywhere else. Its great that Codemasters are sticking to Racing Games from now on. It really is there niche.

Sorry mate, You have a typo there. You meant rallysport challenge ;-)

You have a typo it's Rallisport Challenge, no Y in the name ;)
I would love for DICE to do another one but not likely.

On topic this looks fun, gonna dl the demo to see for my self how it plays.

Silly me. Making fun of a "typo" and then making one myself ... ;-) Loved the old real rally(e)-ish Colins... The new looks ok but if I want some sort of destruction derby I still play Flatout with my mates...

Unfortunately Dice won't do any Rallisport again but I'd (as well as a lot of dudes here on the forum ) love them to do another one...

I'd prefer GRID 2.

it's like twisted metal with way superior graphics and oh Oh... colours. But lacks the fun gameplay.

If I want to play some awesome and fun races AND some arena-destruction-derby-ish stuff I still play Flatout on the 360 with my mates

Yeah the multiplayer became boring fast in the demo, no buy from me.
Commented on 2012-05-05 18:28:07
This looks so insanely BORING. They had the oppertunity to make this game REALLY arcadely, and REALLY crazy seeing as it's a spin off, but instead we get THIS steaming POS. could have been good, doesnt look it.

Where are the damage physics for a game that is more based on damage?! :|
Commented on 2012-05-06 21:56:41
does look really boring, to be honest the only two great racing games I have played this gen are Motorstorm Pacific for for the crazy environments and first person bike racing and Split Second on PC for the innovation

The area mode looks a shittier version of Twisted Metal

Feels like they are doing a shittier version of a concept that Bugbear perfected with Flatout 8 years ago.

    GriftGFX @AndreasZ94: Yea.. I'm not even sure the script is that bad. I've only heard a few real scenes (which are much better than the squad chatter). But man the voice over on a whole is quite poor. (15 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @GriftGFX: The premise is basically taking down a drug cartel, right? There are a lot of cool story things they could do with this concept but they just didn't care (17 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Sandbox games can have good voice acting/stories... Wildlands just doesn't seem to be one of them :D (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Siege and For Honor are both good games. I think they've been on a bit of a role lately. Hell the narrative in The Division.. a multiplayer focused RPG.. is better than Wildlands so far. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @AndreasZ94: Watch Dogs 2 was fairly well received and it's a fairly recent game. But sure there are a few multiple games in there. (24 minutes ago)

    AndreasZ94 South park is by far their most story driven game. The core of their AAA games are shooter sandboxes and mp "service" games like FH, R6S (38 minutes ago)
