Gran Turismo 6 Demo - Are The Improvements Worthwhile? | NowGamer

NowGamer: "We put the Gran Turismo 6 demo to the test, to find out if these improvements are really worthy of a numbered sequel." (Gran Turismo 6, PS3)

I hope the demo was intended to be an earlier build, because the game certainly does not look like this http://nowgamer.net-genie.c...

Graphics aside, there are a ton of improvements over GT5.

The physics are great and the shadows have shown definite improvement since GT5. AI is still retarded at this stage though.

It improved some but I need my smooth jazz
Dee_91  +   535d ago
The AI is worse actually.Atleast in GT5 they where aware of you.I guess its not the final build for the AI

I didn't play the demo (cause i don't own a PS3) but i was reading some demo impression on GTplanet forum and people were very happy with the new driving physics.. cars feel more natural now and lighting looks better.

I don't care about NowGamer impression or any other "professional" gaming site cause they don't even play GranTurismo with a wheel. But i know most of the guys at GTplanet play GT with a Wheel.

As for the sound: "The demo in no way represents the final sound, Kaz confirmed it, these sounds in the demo are place holders."

I really see by comments who plays GT the right way and who dont... (including childish gaming sites)

GT is a game that you can only understand after playing at least 2 versions of the game... and finishing them...

also GT without a wheel is 180 degrees other game.. it can only be playable with a wheel (you still can have fun with Dualshock..)

as for the demo.. they changed physics (in a very good way) also track graphics are improved (as far as PS3 can go..), all other things including AI, you must know that almost all time PD are cutting everything off when releasing demos or prologue.. only the final game (after 2 years of updates) :) represents the true PD product they wanted to create.. All I want now is finished GT6...

so.. improved driving in a driving game.. seems very worthwhile to me.... :)

My bad, I meant the demo doesn't look like this http://nowgamer.net-genie.c...

A game in motion from a chase cam/cockpit/bumper/hood cam doesnt look like a picture from a trailer at an angle impossible to achieve while racing with a different time of day is what your trying to say

Okay
your right I guess
then again Your wrong

@Dmarc

Yeah, in replay mode it looks slightly better, in-game it looks terrible compared to GT5. The grass doesn't even have a texture, it's just a green blur.

I was actually playing GT5 earlier than tried the GT6 demo. Anyone who thinks the demo is an improvement in terms of graphics, has their fanboy goggles on.

@xPhearR3dx

you have to admit that for PS3 it is an improvement... but yes.. now after seeing all those next gen ps4 graphics, I agree.. it looks more worse than good.. but still day 1 buy for me.. those physics saves the day!!!
SSJBen  +   534d ago
Photo mode/replay mode has always looked better than in-game, since GT1. Welcome to 1997?

What a stupid article. I'm not even wasting my time reading most of it. This demo is just a small part of the game. You can't look at it right now and say anything about GT6. We don't even know how old the build they used is.
tucky  +   535d ago
All my concerns about gt5 have been solved in this gt6 demo. GREAT GAME
showtimefolks  +   535d ago
mine too and its still months away from release, i think GT6 will pleasantly surprise people
windblowsagain  +   535d ago
Lighting is nice, shadows better, i like the new physics engine. Feels very good.

But i know this is a demo.

I don't like the new AA solution, and i noticed alot more flicker, regardless of whether you turn of flicker adjustment.

Truthfully.

I wish they would have just updated GT5 with new physics and spent all the time making GT6 for PS4.
Aceman18  +   535d ago
the new physics is damn good i could feel it right away. the lighting also looked great.
mxrider2199  +   535d ago
In the demo its a 370z i believe not a 350 and the AI dont follow the driving line they were almost never on it from what i saw
VonBraunschweigg  +   535d ago
1st stage not that impressive, 2nd stage looks different, better. I think most people that complain about the graphics only raced the 1st stage and didn't proceed, racing the Clubman cup I noticed the improvements in lighting, shadows, and no more screentearing.

But racing with a Nissan Leaf with that awfull electric engine sound...
CRAIG667  +   535d ago
I didn't expect to be blown away by the graphics,GT5 still looks great considering the ageing hardware however I can't forgive them for the sound,hopefully it gets a major overhaul before release,it's just yuck, PS2 era un-dimensional, blunt,unrealistic,etc etc
Koyes  +   535d ago
There are subtle differences, all of which add up to become a worthy purchase. The most notable difference is the physics engine, which just feels amazing. The lighting is also much better now, with dusk looking very relaxing and calm. The UI feels a whole lot smoother. The graphics remain pretty much the same as GT5, but GT5 looked amazing on the new tracks with premium cars. All in all, this is a must buy for me and it looks like a more complete version of GT5
Koyes  +   535d ago
Also, if you finish all the time trials, you get a bonus of two events featuring the Nissan GTR Black Edition on two smaller variations of Silverstone. The GTR really demonstrates the difference in physics :D

Demo was trash.

Forza 2/3/4 =90/100
Nfs shift 85/90 out of 100
Gt5 = 75/ 85 out of 100 (release version)
Gt6 Will be surely below all if nothing changes, not even day/night racing Will save it
Mikeyy  +   535d ago
GT is a simulator. Unlike the other garbage.
CernaML  +   534d ago
Shift...?

You should not speak about driving games. It's not your thing.
pete007  +   535d ago
@mikeyy
Gt is a self called driving simulator, and go try forza 4 with the csr elite and then Come back.
Also visit some Pc racing sites Like insidesimracing, nogrip, or others and read what are real simulators. Even forza is more respected There due To its physics engine, for Pc gamers gt's are crap. If forza 4 had forza1 cars in hd, it would be a disaster and the worst game in history, Well To me its the case of gt. It even came out With the famous appologies from kaz yamahuichi. And 50 patches after you all Come and say its a simulator!!!
I play project cars With g27, forza 4 With the elite, stoppée rfactor and iracing cause no time, and those are simulators.
I dont take lessons from pad racers nor flameboys.
Maths dont lie
AnteCash  +   535d ago
sooo you never played GT yet you know alot of it, gotcha
pete007  +   534d ago
I had a PS3, i waited 5 years for gt5, i did buy it day one. A week later i sold PS3 With all games i had. All a waste of money.
Gt5 was a complete disapointment To me. Eternal loadings, online crashes, shitty game. No 1080p, nor AA just updated gt4 textures

What math's don't lie.

Do you mean the bought media math? When everything was rosie for Microsoft and total flamebait for whatever the PS3 had.

Heck Uncharted 1 destroyed gears of war. But everyone went on about gears, one reason. BLOOD.

I dont' like bullshit, but i hear it often here.

As for Forza, played it, feels nothing like a sim, widened tracks, texture replacement for crashes. no thanks.

1 dev had raced in real life, the other hasn't.

DONE.

"So gran turismo. Its a hard sell for sony these days"

Stopped reading right...there.
WtF buddy, lmao. Over 10 million sold for GT5. Continues to be one of the best selling exclusives of all time, hipsters be damned.
