Not realisitc, the sense of speed is like arcade games but this game will be sim+arcade like most racing games

Really??? They kept that stupid blur effect on your dashboard when you're racing in cockpit view? Speechless...

Looks sweet. Now they just have to fix the driving, lol. I love the dash view, the blur doesn't bother me, as when you are focusing on the road, you can't read your dash anyway...

What's wrong with that? It's out of focus because you're supposed to be watching the road.

This effect is like beeing on drugs and totally stupid.

Of course I am supposed to look at the road, and thats what I am mainly doing at high-speeds. But why cant I look at the dials whenever I want?!


If thats actual gameplay, then I am impressed!

I like the look of that! Well, I love driving games anyway, so I'll prolly pick this up!

If you love driving games you might want to wait until you find out how glitchy and terrible this one is after the first one. There are much better driving games out there.

Fair point, but how do you personally know how glitchy this one is? It hasn't even been released! :)

no way was that ACTUAL gameplay, you telling me we will see that when playing? if so holy shit

they seem to have revolutionized my favourite camera angle in racing game (cockpit view) :D first game was awesome too, it was FUN

I think understanding that it's not "real" racing is the way to enjoy it. I laugh my ass off when you can do the infamous inclined corkscrew in Laguna Seca at 120kmph or see the AI purposely wipeout for no reason so you can overtake him and feel good about it.

This is gameplay video but I am not sure this will be good game. gfx are nice though

this is just an arcade style racing game and its going to get game of the year nods just like hot pursuit seems to have gotten over Gran Turismo 5 wich is a shame... console game is falling appart thanks to Microsoft sponsored fanbots.

alright, you're done.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: I honestly did not hate that area :) (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: f*** blightown. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, there's some citing the frame drops as a stick to beat the game down with. Those people must not have had much fun back in the 5th and 6th gens. If they were around that is. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker it's in no way a dealbreaker for me. Hell....Dark Souls comes to mind with Blighttown and i still loved that area anyway. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker There hasn't been a word about visuals on Wii U yet but Edge mentioned some framerate problems when heavy weather effects happened, sometimes into the teens...hmm. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (2 Hours ago)
