I honestly gotta say that I'm pretty dissappointed with these shots... simbin really convinced me in the past that they got a good team to create nice games. both graphics and gameplay. but they got some time to prove this is another great game.

it looks like what GRiD (aka TOCA) should have been like.

What are you on about? These shots look great, and easily on par with GRID. And way, way better than forza has ever looked.

If you look back at the earlier Simbin games, one have to admit this is huge leap forward graphics wise.

Can't wait to see how this turns out...

Because it's not Unreal Engine, and instead tries to replicate actual light rather than intense brown :O!

The cars (tires) look like it's hardly touching the pavement. This used to be the problem with past racing game (circa 1995) but to still see it today. Even NFS get this right. And look at the shadow underneath the Aston Martin in pic #2. Yikes! The focus in all the pictures look completely wrong (unless you use something like a lensbaby, which I'm sure wasn't intended).

@myke6699: That's not a shadow underneath the aston martin... it's a front splitter. The shadow is to the right of the car on the pic.

First two shots are great (i think), The last shot looks good, except for the fact that the two white cars don't have tires, and the first one doesn't have shadow :s
If they fix that I'm pretty happy bout the gfx. But most people will buy it for the physics/handling anyway.

Oooh nice!!

I cant wait for this game.. it looks really gritty, dirty and realistic allready.. i really want to see this in motion before i can completely judge it, but you just know this is going to be so much better then any race game on the consoles when it comes to realism and physics.

Oh yeah, i dont know where you guys see a car's tires not touching the ground, but in the last pic the ride height difference is because of the physics.

It seems to me that the car that is "in the ground" is braking before the corner, lowering the car a bit... the BMW that goes first in the corner is what im on about.

Anyways.. no worries, this is simbim we're talking about.

God, I still can't believe how Codemasters have screwed us over on that one...horrible!

This game isn't looking all that sharp as of yet, but I don't think this will be a high roller in terms of visuals anyway looking at the developers previous efforts. Interested in seeing what this will offer though, apparently the PC versions (equivalents) are fantastic simulators.

But if you look off the side of the front splitter and the way the image of the car in relation to the pavement. It's just bad gfx. And in the last pic, no matter how you explain it- the three cars upfront look either floating in the air or slightly buried in the road. Come on guys, this is suppose to be a realistic sim. As much as I appreciate a good physics, I still need to be entertained by a good replays.
I hope that other wheel besides the MS wireless will be supported (although this has to be done by MS). If not, then this is clearly a much compromised product.

I am not sure but, I think the last picture is from GTR Evolution, another game from Simbin.

bright? adjust your monitor.

Looks pretty nice, be interesting to see what variety of cars is in there.

Grid is awesome on the 360 btw

Buahahaha on the last picture the BMW's are missing the tires. Not only that, but seems like they dont model the entire rim, only the outside design.

I know, this isn't going to win ANY awards in graphics, and let's just leave it at that. Sad really, because they have a standard platform.
