Hold onto your eyeballs, this game's looking amazing.
This game looks surprisingly good
I agree. This game looks like it will be a lot of fun and it looks beautiful. Can't wait to try this out.
this is the toca franchise by codemasters with a new name. this series has always had extremely good reviews.but they are as tough and unforgiving as gt on the simulation front.this is hardcore simulation.
p.s. Actual Gameplay Footage = ingame? Or not?
I think I may actually have to pick this up. The game looks like fun and it's pretty enough. The PR guys did a great job on the editing for the clip, really gets the blood pumping. Liked the music too.
this game DOES look good...and by the way...@1.4 the music sounds like a remix of the song "No One Knows" by Queens of the Stone Age. Great song!
Looks as good as burnout paradise but not as good as GT5 imo.
Looking good. Not photo realistic good but good nonetheless.
"Not photo realistic good" agreed. not as good as GT5...
that looks almost photo realistic, if it plays like it looks then they have a smash hit, just on looks alone it blows pgr and forza out the water in looks alone., and i mean blows it away.
Forza yes, PGR4, not quite. It looks better, but it definitely doesn't blow it out of the water. Let me see weather effects. :p
Ok it has my attension now but then again the samething happened with Pro street and look how that turned out. So while it looks good i'll still take a wait an see approch.
I think the most people knew that Pro Street will turn out to be bad. 1. The Devs didn't make any good games for quite some time 2. They didn't even work 2 years on the title (little bit more than a year I think). Codemasters have made some great games so I think this one will be great. Still I knew the first screenshots were doctored
when they decided to take the game into the street racing direction that began to lose a lot of the dive they had before. Imo, they need to bring back the nfs-high stakes and porsche unleashed gameplay.
That game looks good, but i still prefer Gran Turismo 5. GT5 will be the most realist race-game ever, not only because of the graphics, but the cars-controls are like the real ones.
Actually i'd say Forza is a little more realistic. Don't start shouting :(
Forza 2 controls more realistically, but GT definitely has better graphics.
pitty it looks like they increased the framerate for the video.
Every trailer of this type always shows a game quite unlike what you end up playing.The actual game will play more pedestrian than the pumping action shown here
Where's the "Actual INGAME FOOTAGE"? None of that is what i'd consider "INGAME", which is someone actually PLAYING THE GAME. Instead they give us some pretty FMV's, which prove nothing.
It is in game which it states from the beginning of the video. Ever heard of replay vids from different angles. The video specifies exactly what it is showing off which is destruction and along with seeing the graphic look of the game.
The trailer was surprising good...its has my attention. All replay footage using the "in game" engine, but i look forward to seeing some actual in game footage. It could be a promising game if it is intense as the trailer. Codemasters normally do a descent job with there racing titles, so i will keep an eye on this one.
what anyone thinks...this hits summer 2008...and it's actually any good...then the summer's looking not so dry...
... I hope it will play as good as it looks, and that it will have a huge variety of cars and level.
And hopefully it stays away from the whole DLC-scamming, but that they will release the whole complete deal when it hits retail!
Looking very nice, like it or not GT5 has some competition from a multiplat title.
@KnaveX - Haha, couldnt have said it better.
I love Gran Turismo, but I can't stand the indestructible cars. To me, damage is so integral with racing that a simulation which excludes it is missing a huge piece of the puzzle. I would gladly sacrifice a few polygons to have realistic damage, and I think that is where this game is headed. Hell, burnout looks really good and the crashes are stupendous. I think one of the devs at polyphony said that they wouldn't do damage until they could do every aspect of it realistically. That's a great goal to have, but like I said above, damage is in integral part of racing. Being able to grind around the outside of a corner at 200 mph just takes the "reality" feeling out of that "simulation." At any rate, I've heard great things from the TOCA series and I'll be watching how this game shapes up in the coming months.
Looks absolutely D-Lish
We are so spoiled lol.. This game looks very good, yet.. GT5 has tarnished our eyes.
God of Car racing games :)
You don't know any better thats why you feel that way and while opinions are mixed about these racers(or anything else) Sony fanboys will never admit it untill the masses overwhelmingly dissagree thats how Sony fanboys reason.
Last time i looked GT5P doesnt have damage or visual tunning, or performance degradation or vibrant graphics or a huge selection of amazing hyper cars.
GT is a bland game.
When is the full GT5 due? 2039?
ahhhh green eyed monster guys? GT is the best driving SIM there is.
I can tell you right now that GT5-P is too sterile its missing fine detail, the damage and the SIM setting you can turn on will make this a must buy.
Have you ever played Forza 2 with the MS wheel, its absolutely stunning. Realistic force feedback, realistic oversteer snap, mad sideway action!!!
I can tell you now, when i played GT at GDC this year with the DFP GT that they had set up i felt angry, it had none of these things^^. It felt slow, boring, bland. GT has No sense of speed and the physics feel bouncy (again). Really this is just my opinion and i'll always stick to it.
GT = Sim? LOL! If by "sim" you mean no actual sim features like damage, and terrible physics, then yeah, it's a sim!!!
Exellent! Though im a little bias towards this after my involvement in the development. Compliments GT5:P very well indeed. This summer sure does promise to be a cracker whatever your console of choice.
I disagree that it looks as good or better than GT5
The game looks great, but I don't think that is actual gameplay footage. This looks like it's simply the game's opening cinematic. If it's being done using the game engine, then that's cool, but otherwise, it's still just a cinematic. I am still really looking forward to this game, though.
stunning.will wait for reviews but i am sure that i will be getting this regardless
Wow... Ive always been a huge fan of Toca. That suprised me. A definite buy for my 360.
this game looks sweet!!! better than NFS prostreets by far and gt5 have competition now
If this was rleased before any GT5 footage, i would of been all... WOW, AMAZING! But sadly GT has spoilt me and this look just "ok" now.... Still, after GT5, this has to be one of the most visually attractive games going!
That so far is the best looking racing game to date, now lets hope it plays as good as it looks.
hmmm, not sure about that, i hear these some "demo" coming out tomorrow that is meant to look "alright"...
You seem worried.
This will be interesting. Lets see how hard those goggles are to remove.
Refure to comment above
Jason, I asked you a question. A SPECIFIC Question that has nothing to do with whether or not it is the "best looking racing game to date". You can keep trying to dodge it all you want. I know you Don't want to answer the question, because your previous posts/attitude makes it completely impossible. The sad fact is that you wasted a frigging comment just to AVOID the question of whether or not GRID in your own personal Opinion looks Photo Realistic. This is the most entertaining thing I've seen trying to PRY a response out of you. Its laying saying Alex Trebek's name backwards. I'll ask again: DOES GRID LOOK PHOTO REALISTIC TO YOU? Yes or No? I'm not asking to COMPARE IT TO ANY OTHER TITLES. So your comment about it being the "best looking racer" Wont apply. I'm speaking specifically about the Graphics and how they stack up to Photo Realism. Its like trying to get a response out of a politician. Again, this is interesting to see you squirm out of it :)
Looking really good but then again, it was expected from devs of Toca.
It sounds like a queens of the stone age no one knows remix of some sort sounds great game looks good too I'll be buying this if they haven't messed with the handling too much
I think its a Queens of the Stoneage remix.
It definitely is. I actually remixed the song myself.
Until you are able to view the reflections of one car in another they will never be photo-realistic. Raster engines are only capable of so much at the moment.
That looked pretty badass.
Realistic looking Plus damage > GT5
I lover racing sims, i loved toca series and i`m sure i`ll love this too but in my book GT is still the king. I hope it has the australian v8 cars and tracks.
I played Forza2 to death and still playing it, and whille is no doubt better than gt4, but it doesn`t come close to gt5 from whatever angle i look at it. I was so hyped over forza2 but it was a let down for me. I just hope grid will be good enough untill gt5 comes out.
it's about time we have other games to look forward to instead of 1 franchise that is GT. Oh yeah no game looks "photo real yet". you can't just have a detailed car with messed up half-assed environments. Now the realism and staying true to the SIM genre is another story. I rather fun racers.
Yeah, that part they said was in-game...that WAS in-game. However, did anybody notice the HUGE graphical bump after a few seconds of "in-game" footage? Yeah, that's completely fake.
The people on Gametrailers are saying it looks better than GT5. Are they mental?
"Hold onto your eyeballs, this game's looking amazing."
Where do you see GT5 in there?
Well then case closed guys, no more to talk about here. LeonSKennedy solved the riddle of replay footage. Are you mental? Who cares about what they think on Gametrailers, maybe you should post there and inform them that it's fake. The game looks great. That rolling crash at the end made me excited about the racing genre again. I hope i can crash like that from an in-car view.
looking slick. plus they put a 3rd gen Rx-7 in the video. thats enough alone to get my thumbs up :D 20B Rx-7...want.
queens of the stone age - you dont know (U.N.K.L.E remix) just limewired that sh*t
