The does sound good, it's just a shame the demo was so far from fun in any significant way. the gameplay, AI, physics, it was all a mess and the races become predictable to the point of almost seeing the formula on screen.

If they can find a way to make it more varied in the final build it might be more fun, but damn that demo was so not the type of game I call fun.

game looks boring and the gameplay is incredible slow for a racer. Graphics are GoW style, yellow/brown everyhwere


Blur FTW.

Blur has far more depth than S/S. As some else said, if you could trade you bar for say boost or something when leading the pack, it would be something but as it is, they've missed a trick or two.

Also the cinematic presentation which is displayed as black bars top-bottom when a power play is triggered, gets old very very fast.

As Nietzsche says, it's almost as if you can see the race ahead of you and it then feels predicable.

It's not all bad though. The audio esp the engine note is lovely. And to be fair, the blur beta was massive compared to the S/S demo so maybe the MP will add some other dynamics not witnessed in the SP demo.

Although S/S demo wasn't that great I like it a lot more than the blur beta.
The power ups ,the handling of the cars etc. felt so strange.
I don't get what Bizarre has done wrong because with MSR/PGR they have proven that they can do more than proper handling.
But I can understand if someone doesn't get S/S either.

I will buy S/S after I have spent some time with Alan Wake and Red Dead Redemption.
I will rent Blur to see if it's better than the beta. If it feels better I'm gonna buy it too, if not I'll go with Sega Allstar Racing.

lol korndog doing his best to troll again. Anyway I'm in complete agreement with RoarrrUK, it's just bizarre that they released a single player demo (no pun intended) with such weak AI, maybe its a Disney and they want it to be easy for kids lol I don't know =/

Presentation wise S/S is far superior, I love the sound over Blur. But Bizarre have nailed the gameplay down, and at the end of the day thats what matters the most.

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (5 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (5 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (5 Days ago)

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (5 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (5 Days ago)
