I am really interested to see how this game will be received. This video sure as hell makes it look amazing.

Seems like too much understeering to be consider a hot lap

To many glamour.If you can disable camera shaking, maybe it's worth trying.But it's far too agressive.

They did not remove the blur in this game. It is same like shift but gfx are neat and cockpit look great.

I hope the sound is actually like that in the game. The Pagani Huayaraua (whatever its called) sounded amazing too in the trailer. I hope the replays are as visceral as that too.

Fake sounds imo.

this clip is from the pc version, note full AA and AF plus the sound if in game its not fake, i just wish they had done a full in car lap rather than part racing part replay it would have been better done as full race (in car) or full replay, using both just doesnt work but overall its looking to be the best racing game not just of the year but period, it looks miles better than GT5 and forza 4 will have to be somthing very special as EA have just upped the game.

how can a non-carcollectathon compete with the real deal in those types of games? At best, EA may have done a fine job to give players a fix untill the next big meal arrives.

or big mess as GT5 was, S2 is looking like a more solid game that GT5 or forza 3 was and rather than go stupid with the 60 fps crap they would rather make the game look and feel more solid, there may be more realisic racing sims out there only there trying to push the 60 fps crap over the actual grapical polish and sense of actual racing, also who has actually got every car in GT5 or forza 3, i personally dont see the point of including hundreds of cars as at least 50% will never get used and further progression will make the first set of cars (rookie motors) never get touched, who actually wants to race around in a slow assed beatup old car when youve got bugattis and zondas to play with !!!.

I do. Actually I enjoy games like GT, NFS:S etc only at the beging when I can get cars that are close to me in real life. Dont really give a shit 'bout zondas etc... So speak for Yourself mate. Nonetheless I cant wait for shift 2 :p

There is not a single car in those games where you can relate to, seriously.
Think about it, never looked at the specs of these cars.
Every normal production car in forza or GT is fitted with the highest performance parts available for that car. Example, how many times do you see a renault clio going around with a V6 in front or a volvo with 300bhp waiting at the red light. And these are 'normal' cars, just not the ones you see driving around all the time...
I'm happy they are giving us a game where you can race the cars you see competing in world championships and maybe even experience it, at least a little bit maybe...

Having seen the new gameplay trailer on Gametrailers, it does indeed seem that the sounds in this trailer along with the Huayararara trailer are faked.

Isn't it sad and pathetic that Shift 2 video is the PC version with a $600 dollar graphics card from 2011 as opposed to the 2006 technology of the PlayStation 3 and Polyphony Digital's hard work and research into a custom 3d engine designed only for Gran Turismo 5 that actually uses the CellBE and RSX, Bluray, HDD (or SSD) as a standard and even 3d option.
Yeah the Shift2 vid looks nice but is IS NOT as nice or sophisticated as GT5 where you can have 16 retail cars or full racing cars or modded at 1080p and 60fps. Yeah not everyone is a fan of Zondas or cars that are not really allowed to be proven on race tracks because they are really designed for the super millionaire club (B Veyron, Ferrari, etc) alot of us love cars that are reachable because not everyone wants a million dollar car and most of those people who do, don't understand the engineering that went into making them just like trolls spread missinformation to prevent people from understanding the work that went into making GT5.

you've hit it on the nail "fanboy rage" there have been several sim racers with dozens of normal cars reachable by normal people that run @ 30 fps like race pro or GTR on the PC just cause GT5 runs @ 60 fps and features over 1000 cars doesnt make it anymore realistic than Forza or GTR, people get over your selfs racing games are just racing games be it running @ 30 or 60 fps @1080p or not it realy makes little to no difference it's all to do with physics.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (46 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
