Four HD videos with gameplay from a Xbox 360 preview version.
Doesn't look like what was claim to be in-game or the screenshot on top right of the screen. :( I feel silly for feeling let down, i should have known better.
The lighting makes it look blurry(blooms away!). Also, the handling looks to be as crappy as in Dirt - Shopping trolley all over again. Maybe the time of day is set to 'afternoon' or something, but even if so is the case it doesn't look nice.
They have a lot of fixing to do in this game or it's just gonna be another run of the mill arcade racing game. I couldn't care less, I would say that GT5 is gonna keep me busy for quite a while =D
'I would say that GT5 is gonna keep me busy for quite a while =D' Yep, i've spent 10 hours on it, but i still have the A and S class to do, plus i need to get all the cars and save 2mil for that F2007. and this is all before i been online. Theres hundreads of hours of gameplay on this game, not bad for £17.99
You are absolutely right, just the online play feature adds a lot more replay value, and even after you get absolutely all the cars and all you can play around with settings and customizations and get to test all of them on all your cars, it's a really impressive experience. If you have a racing wheel like the Logitech G25, man, is gaming heaven.
'If you have a racing wheel like the Logitech G25, man, is gaming heaven.' I wish, if i wasn't at uni i would so had to make do with the Driving Force Pro, but heck even that gives me one heck of an experience of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Make sure you put the game onto Professional settings and the physics level is amazing, this really is the most realistic game i've ever played
i'm so jealous of you brits. I decided to go for the GT endorsed logitech wheel cus of the quick tune option. But hopefully some day i can get a great deal on G25 wheel. For those playing with controllers i suggest using the right stick to accelerate, It offers more breaking control.
What the hell it looks exactly like DiRT.
Never gonna give Dirt up / Never gonna let Dirt go...
I don't like that yellow saturated look of the game, reminds me of urine.
Thats the only thing that bugs me, now you know how I feel when devs start catering to non Xbox platforms with multi platform games.
Alot of games(most of them) have a saturated look to them on your platform of choice(Green, Yellow, Blue, Red, Brown. I hate un-natural warmth in games.
Really PoG? Because the 640p resolution on Halo 3 made it look like it had a layer of BS. Please stay on Topic, and on one account, no use to have two accounts if you suck (correction: swallow) on both of them.
hahaha funny thing was he was singing his head off about how grid was going to own gran turismo. What an idiot.
Don't say i didn't warn ya (deep did as well) The screens they showed made it look on PAR with GT5:P, however after playing at at Play.com LIVE it was clear it wouldn't be any where near that, a bit better than burnout at best
Yeah, looks shocking. The driver looks like a Praying Mantis.
yep as i thought this is nothing but a short under promise. it is nothing more than a slighty prettier version of dirt. the phyre engine or neon engine just cant do it, the yellow filter isn't really the best thing to go for if your trying to go the route of ultra realistic. bloom effects and raytracing is the way to go. I'm sorry but iu'm not impressed i'll play it but it certainly wont be replacing GT5:P/GT5, and this prooves that those screens shown last week in that comparison was nothing more but a highly glossed up replay video to look and match GT5's ingame game play. as i've maintained, a multi-platform game cant out do a an exclusive release thats been especially with the type of quality going into GT5, this really doesn't even look better than PGR4, let alone forza 2..... nice try Code Masters but you need more work
Looks better than GT5Probore. I love the drifting vid!
“It's not denial. I'm just selective about the reality I accept.”
More like xBox3rd60!!!(you WILL be soon) ;-D
Looks better than GT5:Prologue???FUNNY!!! ;-D
Get some glasses!!! ;-D
GRID looks a littel better than BURNOUT But yes it looks milesssssssss better than FUUUUURZA 2 and PLASTIC PGE4
i will get it IF it has a realism mode.
damage looks better that gt5:p
This game looks AWFUL! Worse than a Wii game imo.
looks just like Burnout
gt5 all the way baby
The graphics in this game are incredible and the attention to detail such as high res scratches on the cars and meaty physics make this a game I'm very much looking forward to.
Frankly the graphics totally sh*t on GT5p, use your eyes.
I couldnt believe it was running on the 360. Its says it from a preview 360 build I also noticed the camera control on the bottom such as they have in most driving games. Why not believe it? Interesting that it's the 360 version they are showing off.
ps resistance100 on a par with GT5, you sound like an idiot. Once again it seems jealous ps3 owners will not believe the evidence of their own eyes.
Did you watch the video's? Have you played the game? Thought not, and why would Ps3 owners be jeaous? This game is coming out on Ps3 and 360, and i believe i read somewhere that the Ps3 was the lead platform
I remember quoting the developers that there was no lead developing platform for this game.
NEW RULE: "there is no such thing as HIGH RES SCRATCHES" . yes that's righ! apparently someone was amazed at the "HIGH RES SCRATCHES"and the "MEATY PHYSICS" on the cars in RD GRID.
but dont worry though as i myself can relate. just the other day, after taking a shower, i bent over, and glanced back at the mirror, and was totally amazed at the "HIGH RES CRACK" between my butt cheeks, and the MEATY physics of...... well, the side to side dangling of my "MEAT" of course.
I mean first came HIGH RES PORN, as if somehow, it was really hard for me to figure out that it was 2-19 people f**king, and now we have HIGH RES CRACK, i mean SCRATCHES, lol...... that was a great momemt in the history, HIGH RES SCRATCHES...(shakes head). =|
Do you actually believe the bullsh!t you type? Theres absolutly no need for you Pro Xbox360 crap on this article.
Anyway whats with the front wheels lookin all bouncy and unrealistic when cornering? It makes the game look cartoony. I really hope they fix that before launch because am thinking of pickin it up but thats gonna be hard to overlook for me.
Calling me out? lol. Speaking as if the whole industry doesn't know the games *Kareem* has" or wants in the near future are three shades of something. Just thought it was strange to hear him comment on this game when PS3 is known to produce this effect I'v read many of his posts and he praises games that are GREEN and YELLOW.
You need to respond in an adult manner. Reply to me like an adult not an angry child.
The dude in the pic used in the story posted above this one on the front page has a gun in his mouth because he has Hepatitis C. Thats some yellow skin etc.
I just had a conversation with caligamer...and he had a conversation with himself. That kid is sad.
I hope you know this game is for both 360 and ps3.. And not just the 360.. This game comes nowhere close to GT5..You need to open your eyes dude or go play gt5 and see for yourself..
After seeing some stunning stills of GRID, this gameplay footage is a bit of a let down. The graphics and textures look a little muddy, the pallette isn't that pleasent and to be honest, the prior screenshots were quite misleading. I'm currently playing GT5 Prologue (which as we all know for those that have played it is stunning), but I was really looking forward to this also. Hopefully Codemasters can get their act together and polish this before release.
resistance100 I know its going to be multi platform I just found it funny that the comments where comparing it to gt5. As if fearful of a pretender coming to claim the crown of best graphics in a racing game. Yes its not all about graphics although they do help. I had the demo of gt5 and found it was pleasant enough but a bit sterile for me. Certainly the gameplay/handling was not much of an evolution from previous games. But if I still had a ps3 I would probably buy it.
Basically I was perplexed by the negative comments because I and others have been genuinely surprised at how good this game looks.
but looks are not going to do it for me. I like a racer thats about fun, not countless repetitivenes laps, good looking car models with bland environments. I'm more of a PGR, Motorstorm, Grid, Flatout, Twisted Metal gamer.(to each his own) So while some will only play one "car franchise game" in their whole lives, I don't mind a variety of different racers. Seems like anything that is not GT, even if not in the same genre, it is over-looked ans sh^t upon. Gt this and that every comment.. Try something other than A Sim, for once, I could see a game like "Whacky Racers" came out you'd still see the same comments. "Oh it's not GT funk it." Yes to each his own..right. I guess it will take a lot to push the "Burnout type Genre" before gamers buy into it. This looks more fun IMO, plus they are pushing the A.I, and Damage/Environment while still looking good. Of course not as good as GT..right.
The main reason why people are saying GT5 this and that is because some Xbox fanboys were saying this Grid game is BETTER than GT5p, better graphic, better Ai, and yes the better damage. Even though it coming out on both consoles.
From the video, it does not show better Graphic, GT5p is still a whole ballpark better.
From the video you can't tell if the Ai is better or worse.
From the video you do see a rear bumper hanging, so I guess that makes it better damage than GT5P since GT5p doesn't have any.
And no one is comparing GT5p Graphic to Whacky Racers.
Codemasters were excellent on the PS3 version of DiRt by making it the smoothest version available and adding 7.1 surround sound.
ok then ill go back playing GT5p cause this looks just like $hit,i rather play gt4 than this crap ,hey if u want a real driving exp and u dont have enough money for a ferrari buy gt5 not this crap
add me to play GT5 angel-punishment
Game looks like a flop IMHO.
The game look great on the first trailer, but now it looks like meh. Its looks a tad arcade-ish (drifting as easy as Ridge racer), and it seems inspired by Dirt (graphics, gameplay, etc). And the AI seems to be very dumb, they follow a line, and don't know where you are (bumps into you).
The Need for Speed series, but clearly nothing on the level of GT5: Prologue when it comes to graphics or the simulation aspect. I think this game's been mislabeled.
GRID is beautiful! It's my next race game.
Can't believe everyone is slagging this game off !, i don't think it looked bad graphically at all and graphics don't make a game (so most people keep saying but i'm beginning to wonder), i'd like to think this would be more arcadey than GT5P and i can't understand why eveyone keeps comparing the two, to me they look completely different types of game, GT for "realism" and Grid for "Fun"
you're right on the point that they are 2 different games, and normally it shouldn't be judge so harsh.
But don't forget, this game was being compared to gt5p, and for that reason, it sort of invited the critisms its getting right now.
it's like going against Michael Jordan, when you're simply SHAQ. not that Shaq aint good, he's just not jordan good...
i mean to be honest with you, this game is the equivalent of gt4 with car damage, and smoky tires, and a tad better graphics. i mean, look at the driver in the car, its either he's on cr*ck or, he's on cr*ck! i dont know how else to explain such sudden, irrational, almost uncontrolled movements. lol, someone said he looks like a praying mantis, lmao.....that's funny as hell.....lmao....
You dont understand how this site works.
Any racing game will see N4G's Sony Zealots say:
"This sucks, GT5 will be way better!!1!"
Any JRPJG game will see N4G's Sony Zealots say:
"This sucks, FF will be way better!!!1!"
Any Baseball game will see N4G's Sony Zealots say:
"This sucks, The Show will be way better!!!1!"
Any Virtual Reality game will see N4G's Sony Zealots say:
"This sucks, HOME will be way better!!!1!"
Any Tactical Shooter will see N4G's Sony Zealots say:
"This sucks, MGS4 will be way better!!!1!"
There are a dozen people who will bring up any Sony exclusive to spread FUD about any title in the market.
Nothing is any good unless it is an exclusive PS3 title. That's how this site works. I own all three consoles, I dont really care, if its good, I buy it. If its online I buy it on Xbox 360 (sorry, LIVE makes PSN look like Compuserve), I buy all the 1st party nintendo titles (non of the 3rd party crapware), and for my PS3 Ive bought Uncharted and R&C.
This site is over-run by delusional children.
and that's where you have to draw the line between fankids, and someone who just prefers a particular console because of previous experience with that console.
Dude my ex-girl bought me an xbox when halo2 came out, and a psp. I played halo2 and i was amazed at how fun it was, but to say it was the greatest game i've ever played is a simply a LIE. there were already many games like halo and that in my opinion beats it.
but when MGS1 came out, it was seriously the best game i've played. before that it was either mario, golden eye, mortal kombat, killer instinct, or street fighter.
but with MGS1, i had an AI that could track me down by following my footprints on the ground, throw grenades at me if im in a hole, call for back up, go from shooting to kicking if im withing reach. it was a crazy experience, and for the first time, i find myself paying attention to the story line of a game, that wasnt a fighter. and when it comes to that, in my opinion, no other games do it better the the MGS series.
and same goes with GT, i had to watch for my tires, the weight ratio, downforce, speed around corners, optimal speed, apex of a corner, limited slip transmission, and so much more. before that i only needed to know one thing about a driving game, GAS.
those games are what we called TRENDSETTERS, they change the industry.
what xbox owner, who'm is at least 18 years old, and didnt own at least a playstation? i bet you that you wont find 3 of them.
and please, keep in mind that im not trying to diss your system of choice, but please tell me what game out there do you have that beats MGS and GT? and im not talking sales either, im talking about the same genre
so do your self a favor, ignore the fankids from both sides, and keep an open mind to the real gamers on this site. reasonable people, whom everynow and then might let out a bit of joke, but you gotta forgive that, right?
***** by the way, she took them back when we broke up two months later, so i didnt even get to finish Halo2.
I played this at play.com live, and I can tell you that it feels like Colin McRae on a track...but I like it. The graphics were fine for me - not mindblowing - but good enough. You could really feel that if you turned hard into a corner, the car would spin out.
I quite enjoyed the feel of the game (it even has loading screens similar to DiRT, but all tarmacky...
the jury is open for me.
Wow the handling in this game is really bad. Look at how the steering is on the car and how the car floats or glides above the track especially in corners. This is to laugh at really.
Don't mind the look, expecting it to run and play like DIRT which is'nt bad at all.
Might have to look out for this one as well, for now am still amazed by how GranTurismo 5: Prologue just makes every driving/racing game before it absolutely obsolete.
I am just amazed by how it looks, how the cars handle ( get a steering wheel it is that much better... using a G25 at the moment ).
This is driving/racing game nirvana... and it's not even the full version with damage-mode yet, what more?!!
Some people are actually looking for DiRT without the dirt. Sims just aren't my thing. The only question for me is which platform am I going to buy it on. Leaning toward PS3...
I have Gt prologue and its fantastic but not without fault. Although the cars look amazing the enviroments are lacking detail all except london which is very closed in and does not allow you to race 16 players online. The trees look kinda 2d when you get close using the in car cam. The roads also lack detail with no tire marks and when your skid no rubber gets left on the tracks.I know what reviewers mean they say it feels sterile This game is going for the feel and look of racing and so is a different game to prologue. From what ive seen the tracks have more life with the crowd and detail and the cars look very good and have damage. I think some people here have there rose tinted spectacles on when commenting on this game cp to prologue. Great looking cars are great but would of swapped some pixels for better looking tracks and damage. Hopefully Damage makes into the full game but i am still sceptical after PD telling us that GT4 will have an online mode. Still having alot of fun with prologue regardless which is what matters at the end of the day
I guess the soft focus/blooming look is still there. Another problem that I see in most game, is that the car seems to float in the air and sadly, Codemaster till hasn't addressed the problem they had in Dirt. In GT5 you see the slight lateral/side movement and motion in the car as it travels through the pavement, Better games like Forza and even Burnout Paradise have them (although IMHO, in GT5, the movement looks so natural) and you can see that Grid lacks that. I still might get the game since I did enjoy Dirt although at a different level of enjoyment in comparison to my enjoyment while playing GT5.
looks good but gt5p looks better, i think gt5 is the only racing game i will be playing till the full version comes out, when it comes to graphics and gameplay gt5p blows away any racing game i dont care if it is grid or dirt or even burnout..., i got it yesterday and i was playing none stop till like 5 a.m, my phone was ringing but for some reason i did not hear it, lol....the game is addictive and beautiful and hard or should i say challangeing, ......i could write so many thing about gt5p write now but i would not stop, i so cannot wait till the full game comes out,...how many game makeres can make a demo and it will sell millions and play beautiful, for £25 i got great value for my money,its cheaper in some places but i did not care. i just had to get it at the shop closet to me so i could play it quick....lol =D
