PGR3: Garages part 4

PGR3: Garages part 4

It's now the fourth time Bizarre Creations sends me these garage updates, and I'm still as happy as ever to put them online. This time besides the image gallery, you'll discover the flash animations of NYC Suburb, and Lakeside

Seeing all this makes me hope that the next game bizarre creations makes is a FPS or adventure game of some sort. It just looks incredibly realistic. I thought their cars and tracks were good, but they clearly can do it all.

Definitly, I spent a lot of time walking around in every garage. In my opinion the garage near that lake is the nicest one because of the impressive water und the whole apearnce of the enviroment.

Omg wow...amazing. I haven't played pgr 3 in quite awhile, but it isn't because I don't love the thing its just i've been so busy with perfect dark zero :O

The next project gotham racing game is going to be absolutely incredible.


If the game wasn't rushed it would've been much better the original release date for project gotham was suppose to be january 21 or something like that, but then it got pushed up to much earlier so they didn't get much time to make sure it ran at a solid 60 fps. Probably didn't get to polish everything as much as they would've liked either.

Defo have the skills to double PGR3, compare ps2 frist gen with God of War or tekken5. 360 will be even bigger jump as they get to grip with the whole multi-thread multiple processor game, they may remeber to ease off on the whol speed blur too!
Bizaare not anounced their new project yet have they? They are supposedly working on somthing new?

Some pretty nice hdr effects I have to say :)

Yeah, since I've played it now I can also say PGR3 is pretty cool.. But, there's room for improvement I think.. I mean, the game feels a little bit rushed for the 360 launch to me, with certain features missing that were in PGR2, and some weird design choices imho.. I have no doubt PGR4 will be better and even more stunning, just like PGR2 was a lot better then PGR1 on the old Xbox..

Looks like the Source engine.

i completed this game weeks ago and then sold it at computer exchage. but nice to see sreen of the game again. 8 to 9 months we should see PGR4 and see the big improvement from pgr3 to pgr4. i think pgr4 will look good because there opponent will be gran turismo 5. and need for speed running at 60 frame per second which will look pretty solid.

=/ I was more impressed by the other garages, this one just seems very bland to me. Soft shadows and lighting great as always.

Ha ha. You know that PGR3 has its own 3D engine.
For the garage they used the same engine but could increase the geometry, effects and real time shadowing as they didn't have to render a whole city as when they had to do while racing.

Look like the buildings from toy story ..

As much as I love the garage...I wish you could get in your car and drive it in and out of them when you start or finish a race.

all i of to say is if your are a racing fan get pgr3. but make sure u get call duty 2.
And i love my XBOX 360 100 percent. and for this year yull see much better game quality - because most xbox 360 game was rush to launch. the games that worth your hard hearning money and that you should buy with your 360 is- pgr3+call duty 2+condem+kameo+perfect dark zero+Dead or alive4 anyone of these games are pretty good. my best 1 is call duty 2.

Yea that would have been really cool , if they had made it like that it would be real nice..

Looks really good.... except for those trees! BLARGH Have the full game myself and really the trees just suck compared to the rest.

walking around those garages is wonderful. For me, the best graphical feature is when you move from a dark place to a light place and the effect is like your eyes adjusting to the brightness.

I played PGR3 for the first time a few days ago (dl'ed Marketplace demo) and that graphical effect really blew me away. The cockpit view is also amazing, especially if you have a good sound system and a nice big HDTV. My only complaint is the awkward damage modeling. If you're going to do it, do it all the way! A bump on the hood is not going to cut it for me. I wonder how Gran Turismo 5 will turn out... (I've heard car damage will play a big role)

Yeah that's what they said with GT4 aswell. They said that every car would have a damage model and that the damage would influence car behaviour. They also said there would be online play(wich is possible but not officially a real gametype) and there would be a real-time weather system. None of it was there in the final game so, they can say what they want but i won't believe any of it until i see it for myself.

A wise choice.

    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (3 Hours ago)
